Something is changing
The information describes the contribution of this sport to the whole of Spanish society: 270,000 federated and 1,500,000 foreign tourists.
It is news for the unusual. And it is that on rare occasions the general television broadcasts echo some news related to the world of golf, although to tell the truth and since the appearance of Jon Rahm it seems that something is changing.
Proof of this is that the TVE Newscast on Sunday, May 10, in its 9:00 pm edition, echoed the reopening of the golf courses, which was carried out this Monday, May 11 in those facilities located within the territorial zones designated as Phase I within the de-escalation process designed by the Government of Spain.
The piece begins with a multi-call starring many of the best Spanish professional golfers – Carlota Ciganda, Rafa Cabrera Bello, Azahara Muñoz, Nacho Elvira, Jorge Campillo, Adrián Otaegui -, who welcome all the federated with a resounding “see you soon on the golf courses”!
The review of the security measures established by the Ministry of Health, of mandatory compliance, related to the before, during and after the game round, gives way to a few words from onzaga Escauriaza, President of the RFEG, who ensures that “the physical and mental health of all the members of the federation is congratulated, as well as the image of Spain abroad, which I hope will help, and greatly, the recovery of tourism and the economy.”
The information also describes the contribution of golf to the whole of Spanish society: 270,000 federated, almost one and a half million foreign tourists who come to our country motivated by golf holidays; some 2,500 million euros per year and more than 30,000 direct and indirect jobs generated each year by golfers from all over the world.
