MINI GOLF: GOLFWEEK’s Gene Yasuda wrote a “newly created team version of golf -- endorsed by the PGA of America -- not only may raise the sport’s profile, but could be the long-awaited catalyst the golf industry has been seeking to spark interest among youth and their parents.” Industry leaders hope the PGA Junior League Golf "will be golf’s answer to Little League Baseball.” The PGA Junior League features teams with “as many as 14 players on a roster -- all adorned in team jerseys (with uniform numbers on their backs)."
