Welcome to Episode 100 of the Fore Golfers Network Podcast!
We launch Season 3 of the FGN Podcast with a new feature – “5 MINTZ w/ RON MINTZ,” where golf media veteran and overall nice guy Ron Mintz marks his debut with the FGN team by sharing some predictions for the 2019 season.
Then, our main story focuses on a blatant cheating scandal and hopeful solution. Last season, the Michigan High School Athletic Association was confronted with a cheating scandal at a Boys Golf Regional with 3 schools conspiring to post ridiculously outrageous scores. Those schools advanced to the State Finals where, under careful oversight, they finished dead last. Now, the MHSAA is proposing sweeping changes and new technology designed to prevent cheating.
Will it work? We discuss the issue with Tom Lang of the Michigan Golfer’s Journal/Detroit Free Press and Kevin Frisch of Kevin Frisch PR.
