As a multisport pioneer and media mogul, and someone who popularized Speedgolf in the 90’s, Bob Babbitt is somebody I'm trying to become like. So if you’ve listened to previous podcasts, this episode will feel a bit different in nature. First of all, Bob called me from his radio station, so even though I was technically doing the interview, it sounds like he’s the host and I’m the guest on the line.
I usually try to keep the listener in mind during a podcast, and a list of relevant questions to ask, but with Bob, all that went out the window. It quickly became a personal phone call, a mentoring session in a way, that we forgot we were recording. From someone who’s already done it, to someone who wants to do it, this episode contains a blueprint for growing golf in the 21st century by doing what he said in the intro: changing perceptions. Namely, Golf is a fitness sport.
