Golf Demographic Suddenly Skews Younger - On Course With 1D

Let's face it, golf, more than any other sport... except maybe shuffleboard... is perceived as an old person's game.

Despite recent industry efforts to change that view, the "old golfer" image is clearly alive and well in the minds of many. At least that's the impression I came away with after a quick perusal of Twitter recently.

 Some were quite matter-of-fact about it...

...while others were more emphatically dismissive.

I encountered one young lady who seemed to thoroughly enjoy interacting with her on-course elders...

... and another who definitely didn't.

The general consensus however seemed to be: golfer = old (and generally uninteresting, often unpleasant, always uncool).  However, that may be about to change.
