Why Are Australian Businesses So Damned Cheap When It Comes To Golf?

I was watching the Victorian PGA final round on tele, a rare Aussie tournament on show, and I was struck by a few things. Firstly, by the low key nature of the championship with competitors pulling their own trolleys sans caddies. Maybe this is a good thing in the bigger scheme of life, but it looked diminished in comparison with the big tours in America and the Middle East. The golf itself looked pretty good but the event lacked camera angles and better production. The absence of money and sponsorship for Australian professional golf is apparent. Australian business and the corporate world here are tight arsed in their commercial neglect of golf. It is pretty shabby when you consider that all these executives play the bloody game recreationally. Why are Australian businesses so damned cheap when it comes to golf?
