Show Notes and Arjun Quotes
"My role is everything that's growth-oriented for the organization. So that includes International, technology Investments and acquisitions. We do have this effort and Innovation fund and the idea goes central to our mission: Grow the game and serve our members."
"There are a lot of technologies and services and Innovations in other industries that can really help the golf industry. They tend not to come either because they just don't think about us or they tend to come ten years late. So we're out there, knocking on their doors and saying, "think about us, there is a business to be had and we're going to help you knock down some of the walls of complexity."
