Narratives can be powerful in sports, and they can make people believe things about those sports that aren't true. That is a problem facing golf these days, as the perception out there is that golf is suffering. The narrative, however, is far from reality. The National Golf Foundation tracks these things, and their research suggests that people are picking up the game of golf more than they ever have before. The NGF explains where the game could stand to grow, where it's already growing, and the role of the oft-discussed Millennial generation in the game's future.
