In order to survive a business must be willing to adapt. Such is the case with a small start-up golf business in Calgary.
Set to wade into what would have been a titanic struggle along the lines of David vs. Goliath,  where David, or in this case TLink GPS watches, was set to go head-to-head with the mega-companies, or Goliath if you will.
But the “little” guy suddenly tossed a feint into the mix to skirt the battle by changing their game plan.
