Hack Golf: Project Management

In 2014, as part of the innovation work I supported at TaylorMade Golf, I was appointed as the primary project manager for a $5 million open innovation campaign aimed at reinventing the game of golf called “Hack Golf”. The program garnered extensive national and international media coverage and authentic audience engagement from golfers around the world, generating more than 4,000 new ideas to make golf more fun. Publications including The New York Times, Forbes, Wall Street Journal and Golf Digest wrote feature pieces on the Hack Golf initiatives:
