The Grind: Live from Barracuda with Chris Hoff
By Ryan French
We have all sat down and watched a Tour event. Most of us never think for a second about the logistics and planning that go into it. The entire year was spent planning for four days. On this week’s episode of “The Grind,” we talk with Chris Hoff, the Tournament Director of the Barracuda Championship.
Hoff covered many topics, including, what defines a successful event, how a course is chosen, and what a perfect Sunday looks like. We also discussed how the Barracuda markets itself with the challenges of being an opposite-field event.
It all looks so simple on TV, but it’s a culmination of a year of work—the inside info on the life of a tournament director.
