Currently, the newest trend in the business is mixing golf with entertainment. Bringing in celebrities into the game really helps grow the game to a bigger international market. Over the past 10 years, we have seen a huge need for alternative entertainment such as long drive guys, trick shot artist, comedians. One of the hottest new golf acts of the year is golf entertainer, Raj Jackson from Las Vegas. He is a master golf teaching pro that created the industry's first golf show called Make Par Like A Star. He sizzles on the stage with a unique mix of golf instruction and entertainment. He states that during every PGA tournament, most all the pros are busy preparing & playing for the event itself. So, it is difficult to connect with the fans in one aspect. That same problem also opens the opportunity to create a niche for golf celebrities like Raj Jackson, who was seen throughout the event entertaining the fans, meeting & greeting, taking pictures, signing autographs. He made appearances at many of the marquee events such as MGM Pro-Am & Ciroc After-Party, Opening and Final Round, and Champions Party at the Hill. Interacting with the fans is the real secret, because that word of mouth will travel a long way in terms of growing the game. Making the game fun and more of an interactive entertainment experience is the future of golf.
