Congratulations to Paul Latshaw for being named the 2017 winner of the Old Tom Morris Award! The GCSAA could not have picked a more-deserving recipient, especially one of their own. I have known and respected Paul Latshaw for a long time. His work at some of the country’s finest clubs and with nine major championships has impacted the game and the agronomic industry for generations. In fact, it is through Paul that I got to know his son Paul B., and we were able to bring him on at Muirfield Village Golf Club in 2003. He has been a tremendous asset for the Club and for the Memorial Tournament. The training Paul obviously got from his father was fantastic, because Junior is really good, as is Senior. They are a great family, great people, and I am delighted Paul is being recognized and thanked. #oldtommorris

On this day, In 1913 amateur Francis Ouimet won the US Open
On this day, September 20, 1913, Francis Ouimet became the first amateur to win the United States Open at The Country Club, in Brookline, Massachusetts, in an outstanding upset over the top British top pro of the time, Harry Vardon and Edward “Ted” Ray. It was a pivotal event in the democratization of golf in the United States, later immortalized in the book and movie The Greatest Game Ever Played.
Ouimet’s own story reads like something out of a Dickens’s novel. Born and bred in Brookline, Massachusetts, Francis DeSales grew up across the street from The Country Club, in a working-class home. He learned the game with one old club his older brother, Wilfred, had procured as a caddie. They built three makeshift holes in his backyard, incorporating a gravel pit, a swamp, a brook, and a patch of long rough grass. As substituted cups, they sunk tomato cans. Francis was working at a neighborhood sports store when he qualified to compete in the U.S. Open through his victory in the Amateur Championship of Massachusetts. He was still in his teens and he was not considered a great player. But he had grown up right across the street from The Country Club of Brookline, where the Open would be played. By contrast, Vardon and Ray were the best players in the world. They had the experience the local youngest lacked.
After 36 holes, the top American-born professionals, Mike Brady and Tommy MacNamara were far behind. America’s premier amateur, Jerry Travers was not in better position than his professionals counterparts. As a result, Francis was among the few American-born players who could win.

Balcomie Links, Crail Golfing Society
Insanely fun 36 holes at Craig Golfing Society, the 7th oldest course in the world!

Balcomie Links was laid out by Old Tom Morris in 1894, and has stood up well to the changes in the game.

The stretch of 4 5 6 is perhaps one of the toughest stretches of holes I've ever played.

After golf explored St. Andrews a little bit. Went to the cathedral that was burned down a few hundred years ago. The cemetery is on the grounds and I saw a couple of graves of men that essentially created modern golf. We also walked through the heart of the University of St. Andrews. This place is special #StAndrews #OldTomMorris #YoungTomMorris #AllanRobertson

On this day, In 1890 Amateur John Ball Jr. wins The Open Championship by one stroke at Prestwick
John Ball Jr. –On this day, 126 years ago in September for the first time an amateur was crowned The Open champion. He also became the first man to win the British Amateur and the British Open in the same year (1890), a feat that was only matched by Bobby Jones in 1930.
Ball subsequently won the 1892, 1894, 1899, 1907, 1910, and 1912 Amateurs, a record eight titles in all, in addition to two runner-up finishes. Ball retired with a 99–22 record (81.8%) at The Amateur Championship. Ball was also runner-up in the 1892 Open Championship, finishing three strokes behind Harold Hilton.
Ball dominated amateur golf in Great Britain. He won all the important golf championships as well as the hearts and respect of his country. In the words of British golf historian Donald Steele, “No golfer ever came to be more of a legend in his own lifetime.”
This Golfer Was Really On the Ball at the 1890 British Open Tournament
Amateur golfer John Ball was the winner of the 1890 British Open, and he established several firsts in so doing: He was the first amateur to win the tournament. Since Ball had already won the 1890 British Amateur, by winning here he became the first to win both the Amateur and Open titles in the same year.

On this day, In 1929 Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest of all time, is born in Latrobe, PA Arnold Palmer would have been 88 years old today…
On this day, In 1929 Arnold Palmer was born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania to Doris (Morrison) and Milfred Jerome “Deacon” Palmer. His father was the head greenskeeper at Latrobe Country Club which young Arnie developed his love for the game. Palmer attended Wake Forest College on a golf scholarship. He left upon the death of close friend Bud Worsham, brother of Lew Worsham and enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard, where he served for three years. At the Coast Guard Training Center in Cape May, New Jersey, he built a nine-hole course and had some time to continue to hone his golf skills.
After winning the 1954 U.S. Amateur, Palmer announced his intentions to turn pro. “What other people find in poetry, I find in the flight of a good drive,” Palmer said. He notched his first of 62 wins at the 1955 Canadian Open. A few years later he won the 1958 Masters Tournament held at Augusta Country Club. Palmer then exploded onto the golf scene which became increasingly popular with the new use of televising matches. This exposure made Palmer one of the most marketable players ever to agent Mark McCormick. In later interviews, McCormack listed five attributes that made Palmer especially marketable: his good looks; his relatively modest background (his father was a greenskeeper before rising to be club professional and Latrobe was a humble club); the way he played golf, taking risks and wearing his emotions on his sleeve; his involvement in a string of exciting finishes in early televised tournaments; and his affability.
Texas
Palmer’s most prolific years were 1960–1963, when he won 29 PGA Tour events, including five major tournaments, in four seasons. In 1960, he won the Hickok Belt
