Thad Layton on Taking Arnold Palmer Design Company into the Future

Thad Layton has worked for Arnold Palmer Design since he graduated from college 23 years ago, and today he is the Senior Golf Course Architect and Vice President at the company. He joins Andy to talk about working with Arnold Palmer and building golf courses all over the world, including getting his first lead-design gig on a project in Kazakhstan. In recent years, Thad has done a lot of compelling work under the APDC umbrella, and he tells Andy about guiding the company into a new era.
Before getting to his conversation with Thad (5:45), Andy shares some thoughts about the play stoppages at last weekend’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am and how America’s obsession with fast greens is partly to blame.
