Golf Digest's Jerry Tarde: Lee Elder as an Honorary Starter at the Masters

GOLF DIGEST EDITOR-IN-CHIEF JERRY TARDE wrote about being inspired by honorary starters at the Masters, beginning with Jock Hutchison. It was 1976. Tarde was a college student.

(10)Testers Wanted SkyCaddie LX5 GPS Watch

There’s some irony when contemplating the market for watches in 2020. Specifically, it’s a situation where the original purpose of the item is no longer a defining selling point. Remember when the primary, if not the only, purpose of a watch was to keep time? Me neither. It’s a reasonable assumption that time is anything but of the essence; golfers are far more interested in all of the golf-related stuff that this piece of wearable technology does. The SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is built around the...

Beyond that, it’s a company that lives its mission to treat every customer as the most important one. It might sound trite and there are plenty of companies that trot out some version of th...
