“Distance Insights in golf: Share Your Opinions” survey

You may have seen the announcement by The R&A and the USGA about the launch of the “Distance Insights in golf: Share Your Opinions” survey, which is being administered by SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS INC. SMS are very keen for as many people to take part as possible.

The USGA and The R&A embarked on the broader Distance Insights project with a vision to build the most comprehensive study of distance (i.e., how far shots travel) in golf to date. This survey forms the next phase of the project and enables people from around the world to share their opinions on this topic.

SMS would very much appreciate gathering your perspectives as part of the research project, and invite you to complete the survey here at any time prior to October 31, 2018:

SMS are accumulating as many perspectives as possible on the subject matter, and invite you to share the survey link, or forward this message on to your teams and colleagues, and anyone else who may have an interest in sharing their perspectives. The survey is available in different languages and as you answer the initial questions it will be tailored to your specific areas of expertise. So this is not just a generic survey.
