I’m a pga Golf Management Student and I came across Jay’s Instagram page a year ago or so. We messaged back and forth a bit and I’ve watched the progression of the podcast from it’s inception until now. I love the content and I listen to the show in the car and when I’m cooking haha. I always get new ideas for my future as an up and coming Golf professional. Sometimes I even take notes on the podcasts I think are the most interesting. To say it briefly, this is the only golf business podcast that actually has relevant and useful information. I love the show and how raw it is. Jay is very open and honest and not afraid to share the tricks and tips that he has used to become successful. Lots of value in these podcasts for a PGM Student!

Rank #8: 115 - How Golf Professionals Can Make Money on Instagram

Podcast cover
Read more
I often get asked the question of how do you turn your Instagram into cash. This question came up again during a recent talk I gave at Campbell university to the Professional Golf Management class, and the answer I gave in the moment I think was someone evasive. So I wanted to follow up on the many ways that having a professional Instagram profile can lead to monetary gain. It may not be in the sense that you just buy followers and trick people into advertising with you (I’m sure that has worked for many), but in a real way.

Rank #11: 058 - From Assistant Pro to The Most Valuable Person at The Club

Podcast cover

Last week I had a great conversation with a young Assistant Golf Professional who was interested to know what he could do to achieve his goal of becoming a Director of Instruction. Our call was shorter than this podcast but I knew there was more too my thoughts and wanted to be sure to share them with all of you. This episode is the best job I have done so far in explaining the opportunities before us as golf professionals to be the true drivers of revenue and membership experience. We aren’t talking about clinics and leagues (ok there’s a little of that) but interacting within our members in a meaningful way to keep them connected to and using some technology and some old school tactics to do it.

I’ve been asked this question before and don’t think I’ve always had a good answer to what a newly elected PGA member should be focusing on. The first part of that answer is going to Augusta national to watch the Masters. The second part of that answer is a lot less enjoyable but a fast track to more responsibility and success.

One of the common themes I get any feedback is that people appreciate me creating this content because their head professional or general manager does not believe in social media. Unfortunately, you have to respect that and in a lot of ways they probably don’t do it for good reason. But there are some ways that you can still gain some experience and build your personal brand and reputation online without conflicting with the clubs goals and your clubs policies.
