A total of 4.1 million golfers left the game in 2013, according to the National Golf Foundation. Professional golfer Rickie Fowler reveals the reasons why the sport has been on the decline in America and how he's trying to lure players back into the game. Fowler says many golfers believe it takes too much time to play an 18-hole round, while the cost can be high to play as well. With this in mind, he's teamed up with the United States Golf Association and American Express to create the "Play 9" program, demonstrating how amateur golfers can find the time to play the game they love through nine-hold rounds. TheStreet's Brittany Umar reports from New York.
