  3. “An Overview of What I’ve Learned in 42 Years of Immersion in Every Possible Area of Golf Club Performance”

    Approaching the twilight of a long and extremely varied career in the golf equipment industry, Tom Wishon has pretty much seen and done it all when it comes to the concept, innovation, design, production, analysis, testing and fitting of golf clubs.   Not to forget the business side of golf clubs as well from his experience of having been vice president of both GolfWorks and Golfsmith as well as president of Dynacraft and his own company, Tom Wishon Golf Technology between 1980 and the present. 

    Tom’s time as keynote speaker for the 2015 AGCP RoundTable will cover a wide range of topics and information related to golf club performance and fitting.   In the first half of his keynote conversation with AGCP members, Tom will share insights and facts of a combination of technical and practical information learned over 42 years in the business.   Tom will follow with an free form open discussion with AGCP members, fielding questions and offering answers on any and all topics that AGCP members wish to bring up or ask.   In his conclusion, Tom will finish with a “state of the industry” commentary drawing upon his vast experience to discuss the present and future of the golf equipment and clubmaking industries.  

    As always, AGCP members will be encouraged to bring up any questions at any time during Tom’s keynote delivery and to treat the time as an informal and conversational time with one of our industry’s most passionate and knowledgeable businessmen.   
    Time permitting other potential speakers include but are not confirmed at this time: Matt Heitmueller PGA Professional Green Island Country Club - Columbus GA, Roy Nix  (AGCP Master). Bob Uebelhor. As additional speakers and scheduling becomes clear we will announce and edit to show latest updates. 

    Because we were able to get a later date for RT10 we expect a much larger group than the past few years.  

    Saturday November 14, 2015 – Dinner at Hunter’s Pub at 5 PM for all who wish to attend. This has become a tradition at the convention and you’ll never have a better steak dinner.
