For pro interests you might be right. But a larger media presence in general has the potential to benefit new course development, bring in younger players, diversify the playing field etc.

I was thinking maybe the spot Will Shusterick occupied or was that slot filled with an appointment?

Geoff Hungerford was appointed to Will’s open seat.

He was also the executive director of the board of directors for USA Volleyball. While he was doing that he oversaw their youth development programs.

To me there’s one very obvious strong candidate, and I’m undecided on who to vote for in the other two slots.
Thanks for bringing this up. I had read the first few candidates’ bios and lost interest in this election. Wish I had read all the way down to David Schreff but now I’m glad you pointed him out. His resume is incredible (like almost too good to be true) that someone with those credentials would be interested in a PDGA Board seat. He’s got my vote.

It's Justin Menickelli who's not running again to regain his BOD position.

I don't know who David Schreff is. His resume is extensive but how do we verify any of this? I looked at the ACTV8me website & can't really tell what they do but I'm not IT savvy. They are certainly not sports centric. He presents as an experienced, high level, and internationally connected executive. Does anyone know someone who knows him? References would be helpful. Or a way to contact him. Bob Decker is only candidate to provide a link.
