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 &
is a statement about what is truly good about golf.
Every two years top amateur golfers from Europe and the United Statesget together to celebrate one of the greatest acts of sports
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.
