Our game appears to be based on a status pyramid that we maybe ought to rethink.
Does “pyramid thinking” even restrict how we think about the format of events we schedule? Does it influence the priority or emphasis we give specific formats? Do we see the Tour stroke-play as the pinnacle?
I was once asked: “can I mark a lady who plays every month in our 50-yard ‘hit and giggle’ as a regular golfer?”. Ask it another way: “Is ‘Jilly Giggle’ as important as ‘Regular Rosie’?”

Can you see the challenge with status in that question? Can you appreciate the potential danger in that question?

Can you see how that question might mean that we keep building propositions that favor ‘Everyday Eddie’; ‘Regular Ronnie’; ‘Larry League’; and ‘Solid Steve’; and, if we’re innovative: ‘Everyday Erica’; ‘Regular Rosie’; ‘Liza League’; and ‘Solid Sandy’?
