Golf Gears Up In April

FRED Altvater

You KnowYou Are a Golfaholic if: You count down each of the

200 days between the PGA Championship and The Masters

every year.

I always

said if they

have a golf

course like

this in heaven, I

want to be the

head pro...

Gary Player speaking

about Augusta National

Golf Club home of The

April and theMastersTournament usually signals the start of the golf season

in our area of the country. However, an unseasonablywarmwinter, allowed

golf to be played outdoors until the end of December and with an early

spring, we’ve had bonus golf this year.

Anewcontributor toNWOGolf Links, Brad Patterson is a PGAProfessional

and he is worried that new technology is making golf too complicated and

frustrating for beginners. He suggests that a more traditional and simpler

training method would be better for the growth of the game.

The Concession Cup will be held this month and was the result of efforts

of a local man, Alan Fadel. The biennial tournament features teams of mid-

amateurs and senior amateur golfers from the U.S. and Great Britain &



Concession Cup

is a statement about what is truly good about golf.

Every two years top amateur golfers from Europe and the United States

get together to celebrate one of the greatest acts of sports

manship ever

exhibited in any athletic competition. When Ohio’s own, Jack Nicklaus

conceded a four-foot putt to Tony Jacklin in the 1969 Ryder Cup, it set a

precedent in sports that has stood the test of time.

The April issue is loaded with information on The First Tee of Lake Erie,

Toledo Metro Golf Association, NikeVapor Pro Iron review and two travel

pieces from our roving golf writers, on GreatWaters at Reynolds Plantation

in Georgia and Lakewood Country Club in NewOrleans. David Graf from

the Golf PIT gives area golfers a checklist of items to make 2016 their best

year ever on the course.

We hope you enjoy theApril Issue of NWOGolf Links and we will see you

on the Back 9.
