"Golf is the only game that you can't decide beforehand how long you want to play for. We're changing that." So says Pascal Stolz, CEO of eGull Pay golf, a radical and fascinating concept where golfers get to pay by the hole for the amount they play. Pascal has a long history in both golf and technology and brings the two together in a way that could well change the way we think about consuming the game.
Also, this week sees the launch of the ISGPod Book Club where we'll delve into various areas of the game and industry that is golf.
