From the Short Grass for the Weekend After the 4th of July 
thanks to all our volunteers
July kicks off a very busy qualifier and championship month here in the Miami Valley.  These important events would not run as smoothly or be as enjoyable if we did not have a great group of volunteers assisting us in many aspects of our events.

For those who are volunteering this Month, if you would like to review your assignments follow the links below.

Thanks Again for All you Do!

special Photo from the us senior OPEN
As the Senior Open was just a few hours away the USGA provided two tickets for each day of the Championship to be raffled off to our volunteers from the US Open Sectional at Springfield in early June.  

On Thursday, Tracy Murray and her husband where able to attend using those tickets and she was not disappointed being able to get a photo with Jack Nicklaus who was there to watch his son Gary play.

WSU Golfer Bryce Haney Shoots 61 
Soon to be a Junior for the Wright State Golf Team, Bryce broke the White Tee Course Record at Twin Base Golf Course this past week when he shot a 61 breaking by 3 shots the current white tee record. 

Nice Round Bryce and good luck next week in the Ohio Amateur!

Dramatic finishes are not uncommon in the Davey Tree / Minute Men Ohio Open.

The 98th version of the event — presented by Pyramid Testing & Meritech – was one for the ages, however, as 43-year-old Stephen Gangluff roared from behind to win in a 3-man playoff on Wednesday at the Weymouth Club.
