As a high school teacher and former golf coach, I’m generally in favor of any sort of public-private partnership to benefit the kids. For years, I’ve joked that I want to be the first teacher sponsored by Nike Golf—or TaylorMade Adidas. I’d wear their gear every day, and put a little logo on the bottom of every PowerPoint.
On a more serious note, I buy books like these whenever my students are selling them. To be sure, however, I don’t get that much use out of them. For me, golf is a solitary pursuit, and I nearly always walk. The coupons, on the other hand are for the most part for groups who ride. But its for a good cause and the price is usually low enough that just a couple of rounds pays for the book.
