Hi, I'm Tom Critchley and I am the Founder of SPRINT6GOLF.
For the past few years golfers, sponsors and the media have continually asked for something new in golf and no one was making the first move. So, from a little idea on how to liven up tournament golf I created SPRINT6GOLF, which I believe will be a dynamic alternative golf format that will bring a whole new generation of golf fans into the game.
Many people from within the golf industry are already excited by SPRINT6GOLF because it delivers a more exciting form of entertainment, and they recognise it addresses the main barriers (into golf) of time and perception. SPRINT6GOLF allows people to play in a lot less time, therefore helping people fit golf into their modern busy lives. I also hope that SPRINT6GOLF brings a more relaxed and fun approach to golf and breaks down the perception that it is slow and boring.
We are launching at grassroots and want to grow by giving golfers as many chances to try out and compete at SPRINT6GOLF. We hope to achieve this by empowering golf clubs to use SPRINT6GOLF to bring more golfers through their front doors and increase their revenues. However, this is just the start; my vision is to see SPRINT6GOLF played by the best players in the world on the different global tours.
Everyone's support in these fledgling months will help SPRINT6GOLF achieve our goals, and establish SPRINT6GOLF as the quick alternative format to the regular game.
This is going to be very positive for golf, and a lot of fun!
A thank you from Tom:
I wouldn't have been able to make SPRINT6GOLF a reality without the help of my family, friends and suppliers who have taken this leap of faith with me. So my thanks goes to my small but dedicated SPRINT6GOLF team who have helped keep everything on track and shared the load; my Advisory Board for giving me their expert knowledge and advice in building a business; my investors who share my vision and belief in the positive impact that SPRINT6GOLF will have; Buckinghamshire Golf Club who have welcomed us from day one; and the extended SPRINT6GOLF team at GMS, Anthony Bates Design, Twelfth Man, OnSide Law, Michaelides Warner and Sport Digital.
Lastly, my love and thanks to my wife for being 100% supportive of her crazy husband!
