"It's so much bigger than just the technology involved. When we talk about creating The Wakanda For Golf, we're referring to Black Panther which was such a hit for people of colour because for the first time there's a hero that looks like us. Now talented young black golfers are going to be inspired by seeing people that look and talk like them, who are competing, practicing and grinding on their game." Andy Walker, Director of The UGA Academy & Player Development joins us to share how he's passionately giving back to the game he loves.
