Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 05, 2014
On forums, social networks, and question and answer websites, how can you be sure the person who answers your question actually knows what they are talking about? For golfers looking for game improvement tips or people seeking more golf knowledge in general, the newly-launched AskGolf.com seeks to eliminate that concern.
AskGolf.com is a golf community question and answer site where users and golf enthusiasts can ask questions or get advice from certified PGA professionals who moderate the community. PGA professionals are considered leaders in the golf industry, and to become one requires many years of study, training, playing time, and experience in golf.
"I think AskGolf.com is a missing link for people in the golf world," said lead moderator, Alan Unruh, who is a PGA professional with over 15 years' experience. "The internet has turned the world into a place of instant answers to almost any question. But it really bothers me how much poor advice and bad information I see on the internet, especially when it comes to golf. I mean, what good is an immediate answer if it's flat out wrong? That's why I'm so excited to be a part of what AskGolf.com is doing. People now have a community they can turn to for reliable and correct information from industry-leading PGA professionals."
While the site has its own staff of PGA professionals to moderate the community, AskGolf.com also plans to embrace crowdsourcing by allowing other industry experts to participate as well. "We invite any PGA-accredited golf professionals in good standing to reach out to us if they would like to contribute to the AskGolf.com community," said Unruh. "We believe that one of the best ways to grow the game is to help those who play the game, whether they're brand new to it or have been playing for years. And the best way we, as professionals, can help those folks is to answer any questions they have honestly, accurately, and quickly."
