IT’S PLAYED BY GENUINE PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES” – CEO MATT PORTER CONTINUES QUEST TO DISCONNECT PDC FROM PUB IMAGE
Originally a pub sport, it’s still relevant. But PDC CEO Matt Porter wants to dispel that image.
Current PDC chairman Barry Hearn has described golf as working people’s golf. At first the bell rang in pubs with a few drinks. But Porter doesn’t like that kind of relationship.
And the advantage of shooting is that you can play it anywhere in the world. No need to add people, just change the look of the package. Porter told the Financial Times:
