Applying a Tech Investor Mindset to Support "Early Stage" Golf Athletes - Donnie Dotson, Founder and CEO of Carry

June 13th, 2022

"I was thrilled and inspired to see that we had people going from almost complete strangers to forming meaningful bonds over golf. And my goal is to be able to somehow bottle up that experience and scale it, so we can help a lot more golfers but also bring a lot more fans closer to the game."

"We played The Cradle and Number Two at Pinehurst, we played, followed by a wonderful dinner in Donald Ross' backyard for the Monday night closing event. There was a moment where two of our players who are on the Korn Ferry Tour had to leave as dinner was wrapping up because they had an early flight to their next event. Potential investors were standing up, clapping, a bit of a standing ovation, high fives and saying "hey, we're rooting for you guys, we're cheering you on, will be following along!" They didn't know who these players were other than by name 48 hours earlier and that was cool to see.

The field is stacked so I'm having a tough time deciding on my six man squad. I just returned home from The RBC Canadian Open where Justin Rose who flirted with a final round 59, back to back champ Rory McIlroy, runner up Tony Finau, and contender Justin Thomas all look ready to take on the deep rough and fast greens at Brookline. Max Homa, Harold Varner III , Brooks Koepka, and World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler are also on my shortlist. Perhaps I'll add one of the LIV Tour guys like Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Sergio Garcia or Patrick Reed just to spice things up.
