Bill Yates Presents Findings at 2013 USGA Symposium

Bill Yates Presents Findings at 2013 USGA Symposium

"The voice that resonated belonged to Bill Yates, his grasp of the subject enormous, his perspective refreshing..."     --Jim McCabe, GOLFWEEK Magazine                                                                                                                                                   A Pace of Play Symposium hosted November 7 by the United States Golf Association took some next steps in the USGA's comprehensive effort to improve the pace of play. The event was held at Golf House, the USGA's headquarters in Far Hills, New Jersey, and brought together executives from the USGA, the PGA of America, the PGA Tour, the LPGA, and dozens of other industry leaders who explored topics addressing slow play for both championship golf and recreational golf.


Bill Yates, who has consulted with the USGA since the launch of their pace of play initiative in February 2013, joined with John Bodenhamer, USGA Senior Managing Director for Rules, Competitions, and Amateur Status, to present and discuss their work on pace of play this summer during the Open Championships at Merion and Sebonack. "It's exciting to be taking these important steps together, as we collect and analyze data that will help significantly improve the pace of play for future championships," said Yates. "I salute the USGA for their commitment to change."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Photo: Recording data at the US Women's Open
