A Letter to my Younger Self

In case you missed this wonderful read we thought we would share what Jack Nicklaus just wrote this past Wednesday. 

Dear 10-year-old Jack,

I know you love Dad. He’s your best friend, your mentor — your hero. 

You do everything with him. He teaches you how to shoot a free throw, hit a curveball, throw a tight spiral. You’ve been going to Buckeye football games with him in Columbus since you were six, and guess what? You won’t miss one until you’re 20.

Pace of Play Video 
Our Friends at the Indiana Golf Association along with the Indiana HS athletic association have put together a wonderful video on pace of play. 

We recommend you share with all those in your group and with the new golfers in your life.

Dyes’ island 17th: For a copy, it’s perfect 

by John Fischer

This is Players Championship weekend, during which a short, 137-yard par 3 will be the golf world’s center of attention. For its size, the island 17th green at TPC Sawgrass’ Stadium Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., packs an outsized punch late in the round. Players either hit the green or the water; there’s no layup or bailout.
