Any movement like MORE 18s IN ’18 needs LEADERS.  Here is a list of the early adopters who were willing to lead by example and were the first to make the MORE 18s IN ’18 commitment:

  • I will play at least one more 18 in ’18 myself.
  • I will help and encourage others to play more 18s in ’18.
  • I authorize the movement to add my name to the public list of supporters.

Not only does this list represent support from A to Z, but it includes many of the most prominent movers and shakers in the golf industry in the Upper Midwest.
