EDITOR’S LETTER<br />

Bill Brotherton<br />

Fathers, sons and growing the game<br />

For 100 years, Winchester Country Club has hosted its Father-<br />

Son Invitational tournament. That’s 100 consecutive years.<br />

Uninterrupted. Even world wars and hurricanes haven’t been<br />

able to halt this New England tradition. Absolutely amazing.<br />

Anne Marie Tobin, <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> <strong>Golf</strong>’s associate editor, reports<br />

on this year’s centennial event, which boasted a larger than usual<br />

field, and looks back at the championship that continues to bring<br />

fathers and sons and families together.<br />

Nationwide, however, fewer fathers, sons, mothers and<br />

daughters are playing the game of golf. Tedesco CC head pro Bob<br />

Green reports that the number of golfers continues to go down.<br />

Ten million players, who already have skills and own clubs, have<br />

abandoned the game. In his Shades of Green column, Bob<br />

theorizes why this might be happening and looks at various<br />

programs designed to increase participation, many of which are<br />

having success, especially at the junior level.<br />

In addition, Erin Hart explores a few golf programs in southern<br />

New Hampshire that have had success growing the game,<br />

particularly with youngsters.<br />

In this <strong>Fall</strong> issue of <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> <strong>Golf</strong>, Gary Larrabee in his<br />

Straight Down the Middle column, reveals that membership at<br />

Kernwood Country Club had dwindled from an ideal maximum<br />

census of 275 golfers to 199. Gary talks with Kernwood board<br />

members who describe how a well-thought-out five-year strategic<br />

plan helped save the Salem club from financial ruin.<br />

The aforementioned Ms. Tobin chats with legendary LPGA<br />

champion/Westford native Pat Bradley, who talks about her<br />

career and describes her elation at playing in the inaugural U.S<br />

Senior Women’s Open, an event that was long overdue.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> <strong>Golf</strong> readers may not realize that Lynnfield<br />

resident Tobin was a pretty fair golfer herself. I use the past<br />

tense – was – because Anne Marie hasn’t played a round of golf<br />

in more than a decade. That caused her a few tense moments<br />

when Mass<strong>Golf</strong>, the new statewide organization created following<br />

the merger of the Massachusetts <strong>Golf</strong> Association and Women’s<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> Association of Massachusetts, asked her to hit the ceremonial<br />

first drive before the start of this year’s Women's Amateur<br />

Championship. “I panicked. I hadn’t swung a club in years. I<br />

didn’t even know where my clubs were,’ said the Massachusetts<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> Hall of Famer and seven-time Women’s Amateur champion.<br />

Tobin wittily writes about the experience in these pages.<br />

We also update readers on a Spaulding Rehabilitation Center<br />

program that will get golfers Back in the Swing, and look at <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Shore</strong> golfers who have made news on and off the course.<br />

As always, we’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for<br />

the magazine. Please let us know what you like, don't like and how<br />

we can make <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> <strong>Golf</strong> better.<br />

And, who knows, maybe this issue will encourage fathers, sons,<br />

mothers and daughters to head to a driving range or golf course<br />

to enjoy this game we all love.<br />

Kernwood CC’s rebirth a lesson<br />

in perseverance, adaptability<br />

Gary Larrabee<br />

garylarrabee.com<br />

ernwood Country Club, the most beautiful country<br />

K<br />

club in the region, was in serious trouble in 2014,<br />

its centennial year. Through a series of<br />

circumstances beyond the club leadership’s<br />

control, membership had dwindled from an ideal maximum<br />

census of 275 golfers to 199. That’s a lot of revenue lost.<br />

There was talk among the membership that the club might<br />

have to experience drastic change in order to survive.<br />

But thanks to a five-year strategic plan, now in its fourth year<br />

of implementation, a plan created under the guidance of thenpresident<br />

Jack King and current president Bruce Bial, the <strong>North</strong><br />

Salem club is back at peak financial health. The club, one of the<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong>’s handful of five-star clubs boasting exceptional<br />

historic credentials and an outstanding championship course,<br />

happily enjoys its first waiting list since 1997.<br />

Kernwood could have joined one of several other private<br />

country clubs in the United States that in recent years has either<br />

been sold to a golf club management company like ClubCorp<br />

or, worse, been sold to a private entity that wished to turn<br />

Kernwood’s sensational scenic acreage into house lots.<br />

“We had too much going for us to get anything but a<br />

satisfactory resolution to our situation,” Bial, in his third<br />

year as president, reflected. “Our golf, social, community and<br />

philanthropic history ran too deep. But I admit we had too<br />

narrow a focus for quite a while there as to where our members<br />

should come from, primarily Swampscott and Marblehead. We<br />

broadened that focus to include virtually all points of the<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong>.”<br />

The club, proud of its roots as the first Jewish club in Greater<br />

Boston (founded 1914), to some observers had taken its<br />

membership market for granted and become complacent with<br />

its deservedly lofty standing in the country club hierarchy.<br />

Occupying the most eye-catching piece of property, originally<br />

the Colonel Francis Peabody estate, among the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> golf<br />

course/country club family, Kernwood should never have had<br />

trouble keeping its golf membership at max level, even as it, and<br />

other clubs, began diversifying its membership at the turn of<br />

the century.<br />

Other prominent <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> clubs were watching their<br />

census during this same period, but none had the eventual issues<br />

that Kernwood encountered.<br />

“I joined in 2006,” said Jack King, a retired Mobil/Exxon<br />

executive who became the club's first non-Jewish president in<br />

2014. “The club had very few non-Jewish members. Today the<br />

membership is 50 percent non-Jewish, if not more. The club in<br />

2006 already had been diversifying the membership, but by<br />

2008 it didn’t matter. Between the financial crisis, with banks<br />

STRAIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE<br />

collapsing, and the Bernie Madoff scandal, we experienced more<br />

than the normal attrition rates for several years.”<br />

The membership census continued to drop to the point the club<br />

leadership, in a radical attempt to attract new members, made a<br />

stunning reduction of more than 60 percent in the initiation fee.<br />

“We knew that changes had to be made,” Bial said, “so we hired<br />

an outside consultant to help facilitate the discussion. Change at<br />

first was difficult but it was necessary. Renovation of the grille<br />

room and adding a 14-seat bar was a huge step in changing the<br />

culture of Kernwood. There had been no area of the club that<br />

could be a coed social area. We had no place to watch the Masters<br />

or a Red Sox game together as a club. “The club also changed<br />

philosophically and is now open year round. The demographic<br />

changed. Much of the membership no longer heads to Florida<br />

soon after Labor Day, as had been the custom. The club is now<br />

filled with many young professionals who have families that are<br />

entrenched in the community."<br />

King added that the board developed a five-year plan “that<br />

covered every aspect of the club’s operation. We prioritized the<br />

plan, and Bruce and I formed a partnership committing ourselves<br />

to follow through on the plan once he succeeded me as president,<br />

and four years later we have recovered beautifully.”<br />

Bial added, ”we have two of the top professionals anywhere<br />

in Frank Dully, our head golf professional, and John Eggleston,<br />

our course superintendent. They run their departments in<br />

outstanding fashion.”<br />

“The prime issue for our future success thus lay with letting<br />

people know Kernwood existed; that Kernwood was available for<br />

the entire region’s golfers to be a part of. The restrictions that<br />

were the basis for the establishment of clubs like Kernwood,<br />

Belmont and Pine Brook were now backfiring, Kernwood needed<br />

to be a diverse and thriving club.”<br />

Kernwood’s plight, with a happy ending, is a reminder to all<br />

golf clubs of the care that must be applied in continually<br />

assessing their financial standing and immediate future.<br />

“We were hanging on for some time,” admitted former club<br />

president and 27-year member Scott Sagan. “We got some calls<br />

from potential suitors, but I knew we’d survive and eventually<br />

thrive. We’ve had a great turnaround. The membership clearly<br />

understood our plight and played an active role in rejuvenating<br />

the club with new members. Many of our new members came<br />

from other area clubs.”<br />

I’m partial to our area golf courses, especially the country clubs,<br />

for the obvious reasons. Less obvious might be the following: 1)<br />

they protect open space; 2) they create lots of jobs; 3) they provide<br />

unique venues for social, political and business gatherings; all<br />

significant benefits to the community. >>> P. 9<br />

Fathers & Sons<br />

Winchester tourney celebrates 100th year<br />

either snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of<br />

N<br />

night stays these couriers (or golfers) from<br />

the swift completion of their appointed rounds.<br />

If there is one saying that captures the spirit<br />

of the annual Winchester Country Club Father-Son Invitational,<br />

which celebrated its 100th anniversary this year, it has to be<br />

that one.<br />

The tournament was founded in 1919, the same year the<br />

Black Sox threw the World Series, Babe Ruth was traded to the<br />

dreaded Yankees, and a little thing called Prohibition began.<br />

The oldest tournament of its kind in the nation, it has been<br />

played for 100 consecutive years.<br />

Not even the Masters, U.S. Open, PGA Championship or<br />

British Open can make that claim, those tournaments<br />

having been canceled during the world wars. “It’s pretty<br />

special this year, as it is the 100th anniversary of the<br />

tournament,” said head golf professional Jim Salinetti.<br />

“As far as we know, it’s the only<br />

tournament of its kind to have<br />

been played that long without<br />

interruption. Somehow, the tournament<br />

just always carried on no<br />

matter what was happening. It’s<br />

just crazy to think that this event<br />

has been played 100 times in<br />

100 years with 100 winners now<br />

in the books, and it’s amazing<br />

that there were never any<br />

interruptions, not due to war or<br />

hurricanes or anything.”<br />

Equally impressive was the<br />

final round on July 26, which was<br />

interrupted twice by heavy rain. Play was suspended at 3:15 and<br />

the course was evacuated after some greens had taken on too<br />

much water. Nonetheless, in typical Winchester Father-Son<br />

tradition, play carried on after two delays totaling a little<br />

more than 90 minutes. Some teams finished their rounds in<br />

total darkness. A handful of teams completed their rounds the<br />

next morning.<br />

By the time the final score was posted, Bill and Boomer Jenks<br />

(Brae Burn) were crowned overall champions. They posted a<br />

1-over-par 72 on Tuesday, July 24, but had to wait until the<br />

morning of Friday, July 27, to see that their score held up. It did,<br />

but there was plenty of drama right down to the final group.<br />

Eddie and Ollie Cordeiro (Belmont) and Dave and Sean<br />

Savage (Winchester) were among five teams to finish that<br />

last day. Each stood 1-over with two holes to go.<br />

The Cordeiros bogeyed the 17th and narrowly missed birdie<br />

on 18 to fall one shot shy. Team Savage made a spectacular<br />

up-and-down for par on 17 to stay 1-over, but bogied the 18th,<br />

leaving them one shot behind. The Savages didn't go home<br />

empty handed, however, as they won the 16-and-over gross<br />

division title.<br />

By ANNE MARIE TOBIN<br />

“As far as we know, it’s the<br />

only<br />

“By the time the final score was<br />

posted, Bill and Boomer Jenks were<br />

crowned overall champions.”<br />

The tournament is a grueling event of 18-hole,<br />

selected-drive, alternate-shot stroke play. Tee times run from 7<br />

a.m. to almost 5 p.m., with play winding down sometimes in<br />

pitch-dark conditions. A true family affair, it is common for dads<br />

to play multiple days with different sons and grandsons.<br />

There were two double-winners this year. Mike and Mikey<br />

Santonelli won the 13-15 gross title with a 76, while Mike Sr. and<br />

Mikey and won the grandfather-grandson division gross title<br />

with an 84. Teams Fiorentino swept the 12-and-under division<br />

with father Dave and son Adam winning the gross title (84) and<br />

Dave and son William winning the net title (57).<br />

Other winners were Doug and Michael Nordberg, 62 (16-<br />

and-over net); Mike and Jack Bosco, 66 (13-15 net); Bill Hood<br />

and Julian Ragosa, 65 (grandfather-grandson net); and Hugh,<br />

Brian and Peter Mullin, 157 (father/two sons).<br />

This year, 320 teams participated.<br />

“It can’t get much bigger than this year with three full days<br />

of tee times running from dawn till<br />

practically dusk,” said Salinetti.<br />

“Being the centennial year, the field<br />

was a little fuller than past years so<br />

we had to limit the new invitees to a<br />

handful … but we really didn’t have<br />

to turn too many people away.”<br />

Past champion Richard D. Chapman,<br />

a longtime member at Winged<br />

Foot <strong>Golf</strong> Club, is among the most<br />

accomplished players to have<br />

played in the Father-Son. He is one<br />

of only two players to win the U.S.,<br />

Canadian and British Amateur<br />

championships and also may be<br />

best known for his efforts working with the USGA to create the<br />

Chapman System format in the 1950s.<br />

Among the notables in this year's field were four players<br />

playing for the 60th time or more. Dr. Garrett Gillespie leads<br />

that pack with 71 appearances, followed by Ken Volk (68), Bill<br />

Hood (61) and Ralph Bonnell (60).<br />

Bill Locke Sr., a longtime member at Thomson C.C., at 96,<br />

is the oldest person to play in the tournament. Locke drained<br />

a tricky sidehill, downhill 3-footer on the final hole for<br />

96, to match his age, with youngest son Timothy Locke<br />

of Winchester.<br />

The roll of past champions contains some of the most<br />

recognized names in golf. One name stands out: Monahan. Four<br />

generations of that clan have found the winners’ circle, starting<br />

in 1938 when Judge Joe Monahan won with son Joe Monahan<br />

Jr. That team went on to win seven titles. Joe Monahan III won<br />

10 titles with son Brendan, the most recent win coming last year<br />

when they prevailed in an unprecedented four-way 18-hole<br />

playoff. All told, Monahan III has won 17 titles, three with son<br />

Justin and four with son Jay, the current commissioner of<br />

the PGA. l<br />

CLUB CHAMPS CROWNED<br />

At Bass Rocks in Gloucester, Curtis Quinn captured the men's<br />

title over Steve Salah. Jenni Ceppi won her 12th women's<br />

championship; Sandy Potter was runner-up. Winners in other<br />

flights included Tom Gouzie, Norm Seppala, Keith Burbage,<br />

Quinn Ahern and Anne Saurman.<br />

Brad Tufts successfully defended his Tedesco club championship,<br />

winning his sixth title and third in a row, having opened up a<br />

13-shot lead with one round to play. In the final round, Tufts<br />

cruised to a 74 to finish with a 54-hole total of 71-69-74—214.<br />

Chuck DiGrande finished second at 232. Bill Cunningham won<br />

the senior title by one stroke over Dick Fosler.<br />

At Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut, 69-year-old Richard Thurber<br />

won his second senior championship in a real dogfight. Thurber<br />

shot 158 to edge Randy Alexander and Al Burnham by one<br />

shot. The women's championship also went down to the wire.<br />

Mary MacDonald shot 91 to win by one over Kathy Myers.<br />

At Amesbury <strong>Golf</strong> Club, Peter Fournier prevailed in a three-hole<br />

aggregate playoff to win the men's title. Fournier (72-75) and<br />

Joe Pelletier (75-72) were tied at the end of regulation. Both<br />

players parred the first two extra holes, then Fournier parred the<br />

final hole after Pelletier made bogey. Christina Crovetti<br />

successfully defended her 2107 women's title.<br />

At Lynn's Gannon GC, John Boland, 59, won the men's<br />

Monahan needed 20 holes to defeat 2017 club champion<br />

Chris Towle. In the Winchester women's championship, Tracy<br />

Welch won her 14th title and needs just two more wins to tie her<br />

mother, Jane Faxon Welch, who has 16 championships to her credit.<br />

Carol Lowenstein, who won five men's club championships, won<br />

Kernwood (the name of Mr. Peabody’s<br />

mansion, KCC’s first clubhouse) had a<br />

different kind of scare, like all area clubs,<br />

private and otherwise, during World War II.<br />

Men such as Kernwood’s Abe Burg and Salem<br />

Country Club’s Mike Flynn were leaders in<br />

guaranteeing their beloved clubs would not<br />

shut down, nor go out of business, victims of<br />

the double whammy – the devastating Great<br />

Depression followed by the war – before their<br />

members returned from serving in the<br />

military. They succeeded marvelously.<br />

The Kernwood membership has no<br />

intention of allowing a similar near-catastrophe<br />

as what occurred the last four years take<br />

place again. l<br />

BACK<br />

IN THE<br />

SWING<br />

By STEVE KRAUSE<br />

Rick Johnson, a PGA pro who has worked at Willowbend and Hyannisport clubs on the Cape, runs a Spaulding<br />

Rehabilitation Center program for people with physical and cognitive issues. He’s shown here with his golf carts<br />

and solo rider chair.<br />

You’ve had a stroke that has left vital<br />

parts of your body compromised.<br />

Or perhaps you’ve suffered a head injury<br />

that has left you with cognitive issues.<br />

Let’s say a lifetime of violent torque<br />

from driving golf balls has left you with a<br />

back that no longer allows you to play the<br />

game you love.<br />

You could even have these issues while<br />

never having picked up a club in your life.<br />

Rick Johnson, a PGA pro who has<br />

worked at Willowbend and Hyannisport<br />

clubs on the Cape, has a program that<br />

might either get you back on the course or<br />

get you interested in playing. It’s called<br />

“Back in the Swing,” and he’ll bring it to<br />

Tedesco Country Club in Marblehead the<br />

first three Thursdays in September (6th,<br />

13th and 20th).<br />

“This is for folks with disabilities,<br />

and it covers a whole realm of issues<br />

that we deal with, both physically and<br />

cognitively,” he said.<br />

Johnson, who is not in the health care<br />

industry, said he got hooked up with<br />

Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in 2011<br />

while he was the club pro at Hyannisport.<br />

The club wanted to start a program for<br />

people with physical and cognitive issues<br />

and appointed him to look into it. The<br />

program began on the Cape, and “began<br />

to morph itself into a position that went<br />

outside the Cape. They wanted to expand<br />

it, and the director put me in charge and<br />

here we are. The people at Tedesco have<br />

been great.”<br />

The clinics run in 2-hour sessions,<br />

and the goal “is to use golf as therapy,<br />

kind of as a last piece of therapy,”<br />

Johnson said.<br />

“People have already gone through<br />

hospitalization and in-patient care.<br />

Now it’s time to get back out and play.”<br />

The program comes under the umbrella<br />

of adaptive sports, Johnson said. Adaptive<br />

sports help teach people with disabilities<br />

to compensate for them while at the same<br />

time enjoying much-needed exercise<br />

and stimulation.<br />

“This is a good way to serve golf and<br />

to wrap up my career,” said Johnson, who<br />

is in his mid-60s.<br />

“I’ve had a good run. I spent 31 years<br />

at Hyannisport.<br />

The Back in the Swing program has<br />

grown exponentially in the six years it’s<br />

been in existence.” Initially, it ran from<br />

June through September, with Johnson<br />

traveling to golf courses throughout<br />

Massachusetts (he also does clinics at<br />

Beverly <strong>Golf</strong> & Tennis Club, Middleton<br />

GC and Lynnfield’s Reedy Meadows).<br />

Now, however, Johnson runs indoor<br />

clinics during the winter.<br />

“It’s unusual for a golf guy to be part of<br />

a major health network,” he said. “I think<br />

I may be the only guy doing this.”<br />

Most of his clients are recovering from<br />

strokes, he said.<br />

“That seems to be the biggest area of<br />

concern,” he said.<br />

His goals aren’t lofty by golf standards.<br />

Nobody’s under the illusion that they’re<br />

going to set records once they start<br />

playing golf again. There will be a<br />

lowering of expectations based on how<br />

a golfer might have done prior to their<br />

injuries, he said.<br />

“But,” he said, “we’ll teach you proper<br />

technique. By the time we’re done, you’ll<br />

hit the ball better than you ever did<br />

before. It might not go as far – maybe 70<br />

percent of your previous distance – but<br />

you’ll hit a good ball.”<br />

The instruction isn’t limited to disabled<br />

golfers. It is also for caregivers who would<br />

have to accompany their spouses/friends<br />

to the golf course.<br />

Rick Johnson runs a golf clinic for<br />

persons with mobility issues.<br />

“We teach folks how to manage<br />

their disabled partners,” Johnson said.<br />

“At Tedesco, I’ll have two physical<br />

therapists working with me.”<br />

There is also a need for occupational<br />

therapists to be on hand for some<br />

recovering victims, he said.<br />

And, Johnson said, he travels with<br />

special equipment to help people who<br />

might have severe mobility issues.<br />

“You can hit the ball from a chair,” he<br />

said. “I have to tell you, they didn’t<br />

teach that at PGA school.” >>> P. 26<br />

GET A GRIP, ANNE MARIE<br />

YEARS LATER, NERVOUS GOLF CHAMPION<br />

TEES IT HIGH AND LETS IT FLY<br />

By ANNE MARIE TOBIN<br />

PHOTO: David Colt/Mass<strong>Golf</strong><br />

Anne Marie Tobin gets her drive airborne during opening ceremonies<br />

at the Women's Amateur Championship at George Wright GC.<br />

t was July 23, about 1:20 p.m. I was minding my own<br />

I<br />

business when my cell phone rang. It was<br />

Becky Blaeser, director of communications for<br />

Mass<strong>Golf</strong>, the new statewide organization created<br />

following the merger of the Massachusetts <strong>Golf</strong> Association<br />

and Women's <strong>Golf</strong> Association of Massachusetts.<br />

Becky made me offer I could not refuse. She asked me to hit<br />

a ceremonial first drive prior to the start of the Women’s<br />

Amateur qualifying round to honor the occasion. As a<br />

seven-time women’s amateur champion and longtime<br />

proponent of bringing the two organizations together, I<br />

understood why I had been asked.<br />

I explained to Becky that I hadn’t played a round of golf in six<br />

years and that I played only once in the past decade. She said, “No<br />

problem, Anne Marie. You don’t have to hit a driver, you can hit a<br />

hybrid or a 9-iron for that matter, whatever you want.”<br />

I had no idea where my golf clubs were. I told her I<br />

wasn’t sure I could even get a ball airborne, it’d been so long.<br />

Again, Becky said “No problem, Anne Marie, Jim Driscoll hit it in<br />

the water when we had a ceremonial first drive at Charles River, and<br />

the Boston cop who hit the ceremonial drive at the men’s amateur<br />

topped it.”<br />

Having exhausted all of my lame excuses, it dawned on me that I<br />

had to accept her offer. It was my obligation. It was the right thing<br />

to do.<br />

After all, Mass<strong>Golf</strong> is in the middle of a historic summer of firsts<br />

and was about to conduct its first Massachusetts Women’s Amateur<br />

(and 115th in all) the following week at George Wright <strong>Golf</strong> Course.<br />

For the first time in the history of Massachusetts golf, both state<br />

amateurs were being hosted by the same public course.<br />

For me, the merger of the two organizations had added<br />

meaning. About 25 years ago, I chaired a WGAM committee<br />

seeking to establish ties with the MGA and engage in joint<br />

activities with one mission: to grow the women’s game.<br />

Unfortunately, things didn’t work out. But I was on<br />

board with Mass<strong>Golf</strong>’s decision to mark its first year of existence<br />

with the decision to play both amateurs at George Wright,<br />

the jewel in the city of Boston's crown and a hidden Donald<br />

Ross gem.<br />

It had been years since I last competed in the women’s event,<br />

and by the time I hung up with Becky, the only emotion I felt was<br />

sheer terror.<br />

So I came up with a plan. Practice! Ugh. The practice range<br />

has never been my thing, but for the next six days it >>> P.19<br />

Mark Turner and Steven DiLisio were the top<br />

finishers in the United States Amateur sectional qualifier<br />

at Essex County Club in Manchester-by-the-Sea on<br />

July 24. Eighty-three players vied for three qualifying<br />

spots on the par-70 course. Turner, 18, of Gloucester<br />

and Bass Rocks, was medalist with a 1-under 139 total<br />

(69-70). DiLisio, 20, of Swampscott and Salem Country<br />

Club, was second at 141 (71-70). Turner, a freshman at<br />

Dartmouth, started his day with birdies on four of the<br />

first six holes at Essex CC. His brother, James, who has<br />

been sidelined by a shoulder condition that needed surgery,<br />

served as his caddie. DiLisio, a junior at Duke, was<br />

3-under on his final nine at Essex. The former St.<br />

John’s Prep teammates moved on to the 36-hole onsite<br />

qualifier at Pebble Beach <strong>Golf</strong> Links and Spyglass Hill<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> Course in California, where 180 players competed<br />

for the 64 match-play slots starting on August 13. In<br />

California, DiLisio shot 79-77 (156, 13-over) and Turner<br />

finished 84-78 (162). The cut was at 5-over, with 24<br />

>>> SHADES OF GREEN<br />

By<br />

BOB GREEN<br />

How can we<br />

grow the game?<br />

About 10 years ago, veteran golf writer<br />

Bill Giering wrote an article titled "Just One<br />

… name them." His message was if every<br />

golfer would introduce just one person to<br />

golf, it would have a much greater impact<br />

on the growth of the game than any of the<br />

national programs created by the USGA or<br />

PGA of America.<br />

His "name them" follow-up line was<br />

arrived at by asking other golfers if they had<br />

RECOMMENDED 18<br />

HOLE YARDAGE<br />

introduced "just one" person to the game.<br />

There are approximately 29 million<br />

golfers in the United States. To expect<br />

everyone to introduce one person to golf is<br />

unrealistic. But if even 5 percent did so,<br />

that's almost 1.5 million more players; just<br />

2 percent would bring 580,000 new players<br />

to the game.<br />

National initiatives like The First Tee,<br />

LPGA/USGA Girls <strong>Golf</strong>, PGA Junior League,<br />

and Drive, Chip & Putt have been effective<br />

increasing participation at the junior levels.<br />

From 2015 to 2016, participation in The<br />

First Tee grew by 5.3 million kids. It was<br />

added as a Physical Education curriculum<br />

in 9,000 elementary schools.<br />

It helps young people develop character<br />

by focusing on The First Tee's Nine Core<br />

Values: honesty, integrity, sportsmanship,<br />

respect, confidence, responsibility,<br />

perseverance, courtesy and judgment.<br />

The program is comprised of 39 percent<br />

girls, and 49 percent of participants are<br />

ethnically diverse.<br />

The PGA Junior League program grew<br />

by 300 percent from 2013-16. In 2013, there<br />

were 740 teams with 9000 kids. In 2016, it<br />

grew to 2,900 teams and 36,000 kids.<br />

LPGA/USGA Girls <strong>Golf</strong> grew from 4,500<br />

girls in 2010 to 60,000 in 2016.<br />

The Drive, Chip & Putt program has<br />

qualifiers throughout the season, and the<br />

finals are nationally televised from Augusta<br />

National <strong>Golf</strong> Club the Sunday before the<br />

Masters Tournament.<br />

The Get <strong>Golf</strong> Ready initiative has been<br />

effective growing the game in the adult age<br />

groups. Although the numbers are<br />

somewhat flat, there are still more<br />

people participating in GGR than any<br />

other program.<br />

Yes, the game is growing at the junior<br />

level, as the above numbers show. But the<br />

number of golfers continues to go down.<br />

Ten million golfers, who already have skills<br />

and own clubs and golf shoes, have<br />

abandoned the game.<br />

If we could get back a fraction of those<br />

former golfers, golf would be booming.<br />

How can we get them back? First we have<br />

to find out why they stopped playing.<br />

The game is expensive, when you add up<br />

the costs of equipment, memberships, and<br />

green fees. But there are less-expensive<br />

alternatives. Playing in off-peak hours can<br />

save money. Booking tee times the morning<br />

you want to play on golfnow.com or similar<br />

websites can provide appreciable savings.<br />

Websites sell used golf clubs and eBay<br />

is another source of affordable equipment.<br />

The pace of play has also had an impact.<br />

Who wants to be on a golf course for more<br />

than five hours for an 18 hole round!<br />

There's another thing that has impeded the<br />

growth of golf and it's seldom talked about:<br />

the disappearance of caddie programs.<br />

There are still strong, vibrant caddie<br />

programs at many <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> clubs,<br />

including Tedesco, Kernwood, Salem,<br />

Essex and Myopia.<br />

At Tedesco, some 30 to 50 14- to 22-yearolds<br />

show up every weekend morning<br />

between 6 and 6:30 a.m. to try to get a<br />

"loop." Every April, we train about 35 young<br />

men and women to become caddies.<br />

Tedesco allows caddies to play the course<br />

Monday mornings until noon throughout<br />

the summer. The annual Member-Caddie<br />

Tournament and Awards Night in August<br />

is one of our summer highlights.<br />

Tedesco and other area clubs appreciate<br />

and value their caddies. There are many<br />

benefits for both the caddies and the club.<br />

The benefits for the caddies include the<br />

income they earn and being exposed to the<br />

great game of golf: Most start playing the<br />

game, if they didn't play already.<br />

In the past 40 years, 140 Tedesco caddies<br />

have been awarded Francis Ouimet<br />

Scholarships to help defray the cost of<br />

college tuition.<br />

A large percentage of former Tedesco<br />

caddies continue to play golf, joining clubs<br />

or playing public facilities wherever they<br />

chose to settle down. Several have become<br />

members at Tedesco.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong> clubs have done their part to<br />

maintain the tradition of caddie programs.<br />

Unfortunately, that has not been the case<br />

at clubs across the country.<br />

I'm not against golf carts. They are an<br />

important part of golf today. The revenue<br />

they produce is vital to the budgets of many<br />

clubs. Because of golf carts, a large number<br />

of golfers are able to play more often and<br />

don't have to stop playing as they age.<br />

But playing a round of golf with a caddie is<br />

something every golfer should experience.<br />

We can all help grow the game by<br />

introducing just one person to the game,<br />

or by inviting someone who has not<br />

played in a long time to golf with you.<br />

Give it some thought. I'm sure you know<br />

someone who would jump at the chance<br />

to learn to play.<br />

Every golfer helps. l<br />

would have to be.<br />

I found a couple of drivers and fairway<br />

woods at home and booked it that night<br />

to <strong>Golf</strong> Country in Middleton. I smartly<br />

purchased only a small bucket and went<br />

to work. By the time I emptied the bucket,<br />

I had found my old swing. Secretly, I was<br />

hoping to find a better one. Nonetheless,<br />

I found consolation in the fact that the<br />

old swing had gotten the job done back in<br />

the day.<br />

The next morning, every muscle in my<br />

body ached. I could barely pick up a<br />

pencil, let alone hit a golf ball. So I took<br />

a couple of days off, loaded up on<br />

ibuprofen. I thrice returned to the range<br />

and finished cramming for my golf exam.<br />

I spent the entire week, day and night,<br />

worrying and praying that I’d get the<br />

ball airborne. On the morning of the<br />

championship, I left my house at the<br />

crack of dawn in case of traffic. Plus, I was<br />

awake early. I’d barely slept. My plan was<br />

to warm up and hit some balls, but<br />

George Wright has no practice range. I<br />

went into another panic, but found a spot<br />

adjacent to the first fairway where I could<br />

hit a couple of drives.<br />

That was a bad idea. I topped the first<br />

one. It went about 30 yards. The second<br />

was even worse, a real worm-burner.<br />

I was horrified. The look on my daughter<br />

Abby’s face said it all. I was in big<br />

trouble!<br />

Ten minutes later, Mass<strong>Golf</strong> CEO/<br />

Executive Director Jesse Menachem<br />

began the first tee ceremony right on cue<br />

at 7:40 a.m. On hand was a large group of<br />

spectators that included Mass<strong>Golf</strong> and<br />

George Wright staff, City of Boston Parks<br />

and Recreation scholars along with<br />

Boston City Councilor Annissa Essaibi<br />

George, and Dennis Roache, director<br />

of administration of Boston Parks &<br />

Recreation Dept., plus several First Tee<br />

Boston participants.<br />

The pressure was on.<br />

I teed up a ball, went through my<br />

pre-shot routine and addressed the<br />

ball, only to look down and see I had a<br />

downhill lie. Of course, it was just<br />

another stalling tactic on my part.<br />

By this time, my hands were shaking.<br />

I re-teed the ball a little higher this time,<br />

remembering my teenage days when<br />

Patty Berg gave a clinic at Thomson<br />

Country Club with Thomson pro Bill<br />

Flynn. She said over and over, “Tee it<br />

high and let it fly.” I took a couple of<br />

casual practice swings and addressed the<br />

ball, hoping Patty Berg was right.<br />

Turns out, she was.<br />

I hit it about as solidly as I ever did and<br />

it felt great. But if I had any fool notions<br />

about being ready to get back out there<br />

and compete, they were dashed the<br />

minute the 8 o’clock group teed off. Both<br />

players knocked their tee shots a good 25<br />

yards past mine, but on this day none of<br />

that mattered.<br />

What did matter was it was a banner<br />

day for women’s golf, the city of Boston<br />

and Mass<strong>Golf</strong>, and I was proud to have<br />

been a part of it. And relieved that I<br />

would never have to do it again. l<br />

KNIGHT MOVES<br />

Groveland golfer reaches<br />

Women’s Amateur semis<br />

KRYSTAL<br />

KNIGHT<br />

Groveland native Krystal Knight, a<br />

senior at Merrimack College, reached the<br />

semifinals of the 115th Women’s Amateur<br />

Championship at George Wright <strong>Golf</strong><br />

Course June 30-Aug. 2. Knight, who<br />

plays out of <strong>North</strong> Andover CC, was one<br />

of just two collegians in the field and<br />

playing in the event for the first time. She<br />

earned the No. 3 seed after posting a<br />

1-over-par 73 in the qualifying round and<br />

breezed through the first two rounds of<br />

match play, defeating Nashawtuc’s M.J.<br />

Wagner 6&5 in the first round and former<br />

champion Isabel Southard (Pawtucket)<br />

by the same margin.<br />

In the semis against two-time champion<br />

Claire Sheldon (The Country Club),<br />

Knight jumped out to a 2-up lead after<br />

five holes, but Sheldon fought back to<br />

take the match, 3&2. Sheldon came up<br />

short the next day against Shannon<br />

Johnson, who prevailed 3&2 to win her<br />

first women’s amateur title.<br />

Knight had a breakout season this year<br />

at Merrimack. She was the Warriors' top<br />

scorer, averaging 76.26 strokes per<br />

round. She was named to the <strong>North</strong>east-<br />

10 All-Conference First Team and<br />

also earned CoSIDA Academic All-<br />

District honors. She won five of the nine<br />

events she played, including the<br />

conference championship, with seven<br />

top-10 finishes.<br />

Nashawtuc’s Gabrielle Shieh qualified<br />

for match play with a 78 to earn the No.<br />

15 seed. She defeated former champion<br />

Tracy Welch of Winchester 3&2 in the<br />

first round, but lost to Sheldon 1 down in<br />

the round of 16. Welch shot 80 in the<br />

qualifying round and was the No. 18 seed.<br />

Beverly <strong>Golf</strong> and Tennis Club’s Sarah<br />

Daley qualified with an 82 and was the<br />

No. 22 seed. She dropped her first round<br />

match to Megan Buck, 2 down. l<br />

ED BARRY, DR. PAUL MCNEIL, DON DURKEE AND DICK MURRAY<br />

ARE PART OF AN EXCLUSIVE CLUB<br />

one can recall ever playing as an official<br />

foursome, either at Tedesco Country Club<br />

or anywhere else.<br />

They have never really hung around together<br />

as a tight-knit group, though they all know each other and<br />

have for years.<br />

What links them together has relatively little to do with<br />

golf, save for the fact that they’ve all been Tedesco members<br />

and played golf there for more than 60 years. That, and the<br />

fact that each is more than 90 years old.<br />

Today, thanks to being recognized with honorary<br />

memberships at Tedesco earlier this summer, Dick Murray<br />

(92), Don Durkee (93), Dr. Paul McNeil (93) and Ed Barry<br />

(94) are now “The Fabulous Foursome.”<br />

Murray put his status as an honorary member<br />

at Tedesco CC in proper perspective.<br />

“Usually,” he said, “this kind of honor comes to members<br />

who are about to die. I hope they’re not trying to tell<br />

N<br />

These days, Murray’s home borders the fifth hole at the<br />

golf course that straddles the Marblehead-Swampscott<br />

line.<br />

“Still,” he said, “I don’t get out there very much these<br />

days.”<br />

He attributes that to a sciatic nerve condition in his back.<br />

None of the four honorees have factored in many — if any<br />

— of the prestigious club championships, or tournaments,<br />

held each year. Murray did win the Alex Ellis Memorial in<br />

1953, “but if you look at the plaque outside this door (of the<br />

19th hole), my name’s not on it.”<br />

Club president Luke Tsokanis calls the four “a great<br />

source of inspiration.”<br />

“Over their tenure,” Tsokanis said, “they have contributed<br />

to the club’s development by serving on various<br />

committees and/or the Board of Governors.<br />

“Their knowledge of the club’s history and experiences<br />

over more than two generations are irreplaceable. And<br />

me something.”<br />

Given a chance to reflect on their years as members, all<br />

four readily admit that what jumps out at them are the<br />

changes the golf course — and other aspects of the<br />

club — has gone through.<br />

“It’s a great golf course,” said Durkee, who ran the<br />

Durkee-Mower company in Lynn that produced Marshmallow<br />

Fluff. “It’s undergone a lot of facelifts, and it’s only<br />

made the course better.”<br />

One of the perks in being named an honorary member<br />

at Tedesco is that your days of paying a yearly fee are over.<br />

But in the grand scheme of things, for Tedesco’s four<br />

newest honorary members, free memberships are the least<br />

of the reasons to be proud of being so recognized.<br />

“The recognition is the nicest part of it,” said Durkee.<br />

“I’ve been a member for so long, and all of us have<br />

contributed a lot to the club.”<br />

Murray, by far the most talkative of the four, said he<br />

joined Tedesco in 1951 because his boss at the time was a<br />

member of Vesper CC in Tyngsborough and urged him to<br />

join a club too.<br />

“So I set out to join Tedesco,” said Murray, who grew up<br />

in Swampscott and played for the Big Blue in the early<br />

1940s. “I used to come up from the tracks and play the back<br />

nine,” Murray said.<br />

those of us in current leadership roles are grateful to have<br />

their counsel.”<br />

McNeil acknowledged, “I was never very good, though I<br />

did win the round-a-day at the Fourball once. I just enjoy<br />

getting out there and playing with friends,” he said. “It’s a<br />

great course. And I enjoy the social aspect of the club. And<br />

this is such a beautiful course.”<br />

The same goes for Durkee.<br />

“It’s just the friendships you develop with the players,”<br />

he said. “And it’s fascinating the way the place has changed<br />

over the years.<br />

“Walking down these corridors brings back a lot of<br />

memories. The course has changed, and my handicap has<br />

gone up.”<br />

Barry has been a member since 1948.<br />

“I’ve been playing with some of these fellas for over 40<br />

years,” he said. “I don’t have the stories some of these other<br />

guys have. I mostly sit as a bystander and listen. Durkee<br />

has all the good stories.”<br />

These days, none of them get out much, although<br />

Murray is probably at the club the most of the four.<br />

“Well, I live here,” he said. “I come here every morning,<br />

and if I can, I work out for a half hour (in the gym) and then<br />

come up here (to the 19th hole) to read the papers.”<br />

hen it comes to mental toughness,<br />

W<br />

determination and dedication,<br />

LPGA and World <strong>Golf</strong> Hall of<br />

Famer Pat Bradley, may be second<br />

to none. So says noted sports psychologist Bob<br />

Rotella, who described Bradley in his 1996 book,<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> is a Game of Confidence, as the toughest<br />

athlete he ever met.<br />

Bradley won 31 events on the LPGA tour, six<br />

of them majors.<br />

In her prime, the 67-year-old Westford<br />

native was the first woman to top the $2 million<br />

(1986), $3 million (1990) and $4 million (1991)<br />

marks in career earnings.<br />

She was the first woman to win all four<br />

modern majors and the third player to complete<br />

the LPGA Grand Slam.<br />

Her first professional win, the 1975 Colgate<br />

Far East Ladies event in Australia, sparked a<br />

life-long tradition of her mother, Kay, ringing a<br />

cowbell at the family home in Westford every<br />

time Bradley won a tournament. That cowbell is<br />

permanently enshrined at the World <strong>Golf</strong> Hall<br />

of Fame.<br />

In 1986, Bradley dominated the Tour,<br />

winning three of four majors – the Colgate<br />

Dinah <strong>Shore</strong> Classic, the LPGA Championship<br />

and the du Maurier Classic – prompting Sports<br />

Illustrated writer Barry McDermott to dub<br />

her, Payday Pat.<br />

In 1988, she was diagnosed with Graves’<br />

disease. Her inspirational recovery and return<br />

to form earned Bradley the <strong>Golf</strong> Writers’ Ben<br />

Hogan Award, for golfers who overcome<br />

adversity.<br />

Bradley’s first signs of stardom came as a<br />

local amateur. She won the 1967 and 1969 New<br />

Hampshire, 1972 Massachusetts and 1972-1973<br />

New England Amateur championships. She<br />

turned pro in 1974.<br />

Her career came full circle this summer<br />

at the inaugural U.S. Women's Senior Open<br />

at Chicago <strong>Golf</strong> Club. Bradley finished 52nd<br />

(78-78-81-82/319) and was the oldest player<br />

(67) to make the cut at the oldest golf club in<br />

the nation. A member at Hyannisport <strong>Golf</strong><br />

Club, Bradley currently stays active on the<br />

LPGA Legends Tour and lives on the Cape<br />

with her mother.<br />

You were the first exempt player to<br />

submit an entry to the Senior Open.<br />

I had been waiting 17 years for this day and<br />

I was determined I was not going to miss my<br />

tee time, so to speak, so I filed my entry as<br />

soon as they opened. After so many years of<br />

thinking that there would never be a Senior<br />

Open for women, I had to be sure I made<br />

my tee time.<br />

Why do you think it took the USGA<br />

so long to add the Senior Open?<br />

We were the only group without a national<br />

championship. I was hoping they would have it<br />

when I turned 50, but that didn’t happen. Then<br />

I thought maybe they were waiting for Nancy<br />

Lopez to turn 50, but it didn't happen. I began<br />

to realize that there was something more to this.<br />

But eventually, I guess it took a little more<br />

time than many of us had hoped. I think the<br />

USGA learned something after 526 entries<br />

were submitted.<br />

Did you do anything special to<br />

prepare for the Senior Open?<br />

I called my swing coach, Gail, and told her I<br />

had another journey to take. I made four trips to<br />

Texas to work with her, and in my heart, I know<br />

she was a big reason why I made the cut. It was<br />

tough, though, between the heat and walking all<br />

week. Playing the Legends Tour doesn’t have<br />

the same intensity as the U.S. Open, but it keeps<br />

you sharp on a competitive level. Walking and<br />

carrying my bag at Hyannisport also helped.<br />

How did you get started in golf?<br />

My father (Richard) was an avid golfer. He<br />

grew up caddying at Winchester and promised<br />

that when he had kids, he would introduce them<br />

to golf. I was 11 and was always playing sports<br />

with my five brothers. But in football, they<br />

always made me hike the ball and block. I said I<br />

wanted to throw the ball and catch the ball, and<br />

they would always say, ‘but Pat, you’re so good<br />

at hiking.’ I went home and asked my dad to<br />

take me to the golf course. My first tournament<br />

was the New England Women’s Amateur at my<br />

home club, Nashua, when I was 15. Joanne<br />

Carner won it and I was so impressed with her<br />

power. I think I broke 80 for the first time.<br />

But I didn’t play many national tournaments.<br />

I was more of a country bumpkin when it came<br />

to those!<br />

Other than your father, who was<br />

your mentor?<br />

When I first started playing, my father signed<br />

me up with John Wrobel. John was a protege of<br />

Phil Friel of Green Meadows, who was one of<br />

the best teachers in New England. He saw my<br />

natural potential and took me under his wing.<br />

He was the only teacher I had until I made the<br />

Tour. I remember going to his office and he<br />

agreed 100 percent that for me to take it to the<br />

next level, I needed to move on, as he had taken<br />

me as far as he could. Gail Davis was working<br />

with many LPGA players, so I worked with her<br />

and she has been my only pro since. I owe a<br />

lot of my success to both of them. > P.24<br />

BRADLEY >>> CONTINUED FROM P. 23<br />

When did you decide<br />

you wanted to play the<br />

LPGA Tour?<br />

I had gone to a community college<br />

and then transferred to FIU (Florida<br />

International University) and played<br />

two years there. I had a successful<br />

college career, but I wanted to have<br />

a college education to fall back on, so<br />

I majored in K-12 education and spent<br />

my final semester in 1974 student<br />

teaching. It just so happened that the<br />

LPGA qualifying school was across the<br />

street from FIU, so I signed up on a<br />

lark and ended up being medalist.<br />

I remember looking down and thinking,<br />

“Wow, I just won my playing card.”<br />

How did the cowbell<br />

tradition get started?<br />

I was at the Colgate Far East Classic<br />

in Australia and called home after I<br />

won. It was very early in the morning,<br />

I think 3 a.m., and my mother was so<br />

excited. She ran downstairs, grabbed<br />

the cowbell and rang it out on the front<br />

porch. All of the neighbors came out<br />

and were celebrating. Every one of<br />

my wins after that, my mother rang<br />

that bell.<br />

How do you view the growth<br />

of the women’s game today?<br />

Amateur golf gave me my start, but<br />

players were expected to be seen, not<br />

heard, so the opportunities were very<br />

limited. I’m glad to see that organized<br />

golf is now doing what it takes to grow<br />

the game. At the USGA level, you can<br />

see there is a younger group of women<br />

who have embraced their roles on<br />

committees. They are committed to<br />

growing the game. And what the MGA<br />

and WGAM have done, with their<br />

merger and holding the men’s and<br />

women’s amateurs at George Wright,<br />

is wonderful and will help the game<br />

grow by leaps and bounds.<br />

When you reflect back<br />

on your highlight-filled<br />

career, what are your most<br />

memorable moments?<br />

Winning the U.S, Open at LaGrange<br />

in 1981 was, no doubt, the biggest win<br />

of my career. In my heart, it’s the most<br />

important tournament a player can<br />

win because you become a member<br />

of the USGA family. For the rest of your<br />

life, you are always recognized as a<br />

USGA champion and there is nothing<br />

like it.<br />

But playing the Senior Open was<br />

incredible. There were smiles all<br />

around, with everyone congratulating<br />

everyone for making it there. The<br />

competition was keen and we have a<br />

wonderful champion in Laura Davies.<br />

It was a severe test, as the USGA likes<br />

to test every part of your game and<br />

expose your weaknesses. Overall,<br />

I was pleased with my performance.<br />

My competitive career is not over<br />

by any means, but the Senior Open<br />

has definitely completed my career.<br />

It’s the cherry on top and, without<br />

it, something would have always<br />

been missing. l<br />

Johnson uses a trailer that looks<br />

like something a landscaper might tow<br />

around, and it's filled with carts and<br />

a solo rider - a chair that can bring<br />

people who cannot use their legs in an<br />

upright position so they can swing a<br />

club – for people who might only be<br />

able to use their hands.<br />

“We call them ‘paragolfers,’<br />

“Johnson said. “(The chairs are)<br />

pretty cool. We have paragolfers on<br />

the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Shore</strong>. We have people with<br />

spinal cord injuries playing on a regular<br />

basis because the equipment is there.”<br />

However, Johnson said, “the<br />

equipment is pretty expensive. But<br />

some courses have them on their sites.”<br />

The clinics Johnson runs last six<br />

hours all told, “and for those six hours,<br />

we charge a whopping $40,” he said.<br />

Naturally, Johnson feels it’s money<br />

well spent.<br />

“(The program) is a game-changer,”<br />

he said.<br />

“A lot of people are getting back<br />

in the game after one or two years of<br />

having their clubs in a corner. Some<br />

people also find themselves with idle<br />

time because they can’t work. So they<br />

take up golf.” l

By ERIN HART<br />

Our kids<br />

can save this<br />

endangered<br />

game<br />

Coach Ted Foster with junior<br />

members of Foster’s <strong>Golf</strong> Camp<br />

at Brookstone Park.<br />

There are two types of people in the world:<br />

those who play golf and those who don’t.<br />

Unfortunately, the former group seems to<br />

be depleting, putting the entire sport at risk.<br />

According to the National <strong>Golf</strong> Federation,<br />

the number of golfers in the United States<br />

dropped from 30 million to 24.1 million in<br />

2015, a number that continues to decrease.<br />

Additionally, according to marketwatch.com,<br />

more than 800 U.S. golf courses have closed<br />

in the past decade. Fewer and fewer people are<br />

taking the time to play a round of golf on a<br />

regular basis.<br />

Participation in the game has been<br />

decreasing in part because its main supporters<br />

are getting older. In a study conducted by the<br />

Statistic Brain Research Institute in May, it<br />

was found that only 9.6 percent of the U.S.<br />

population plays golf, and the largest<br />

percentage of those golfers are age 50 to<br />

59, at 24 percent.<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> is an inaccessible game; it is expensive,<br />

takes a long time to learn and presents a large<br />

time commitment on a regular basis. In order<br />

to grow the golf community and keep the sport<br />

alive, there’s a need to attract younger players.<br />

The industry can help by marketing and<br />

promoting young golf stars like Jordan Spieth<br />

and Rickie Fowler.<br />

<strong>Golf</strong> teaches many integral life lessons<br />

and skills such as patience and dedication.<br />

Because of the length of a round of golf and<br />

the unpredictability of the game, players build<br />

mental endurance skills that can be applied to<br />

other aspects of their lives. If children start<br />

playing golf at a young age, they will not only<br />

be learning the fundamentals of the game,<br />

they will also be building these important<br />

mental skills.<br />

On its own, being able to swing a club is a<br />

great skill. In the business world, golf offers<br />

networking opportunities that may lead to<br />

business deals. Acquiring such skills at a<br />

young age can help one stand out and progress<br />

in one’s career later in life. <strong>Golf</strong> is a game that<br />

players can enjoy throughout their life, and<br />

every member of the family can participate<br />

as well.<br />

<strong>Golf</strong>, although challenging with many<br />

frustrations and obstacles, is worth starting at<br />

a young age. And there are great programs at<br />

many local golf courses for just that purpose.<br />

Brookstone Park in Derry, N.H., is a pristine<br />

9-hole par-3 golf course and event facility that<br />

hosts many programs to give junior players<br />

the opportunity to learn the game. The golf<br />

complex holds camps and clinics, led by<br />

Director of Instruction Glenn Keating. Junior<br />

players can work on their game on the course,<br />

driving range and putting and chipping<br />

practice area.<br />

Go to www.brookstone-golf.com for details.<br />

In addition, Foster’s <strong>Golf</strong> Camp is a great<br />

program for young, aspiring golfers. This<br />

program is available to all levels of student:<br />

from beginner to advanced. According to<br />

fostersgolfcamp.com, more than 750 students<br />

signed up last year. Coach Ted Foster takes his<br />

junior players to three par-3 area courses each<br />

week to learn the game's fundamentals. Foster<br />

has been teaching junior golfers for years.<br />

“(<strong>Golf</strong>) teaches respect and etiquette, which<br />

are lifelong traits,” Foster said.<br />

Two of his junior members came to a similar<br />

conclusion. Tucker Theodore, 12, said, “Both<br />

of my grandparents and my dad play golf, and<br />

they taught me that it’s really fun. ... and it also<br />

teaches great life lessons.” Samuel Johnson,<br />

13, shared his enthusiasm for the game. “I’ve<br />

always been fascinated with golf. I have always<br />

wanted to be the best, and I still want to, so I<br />

keep practicing,” he said.<br />

Although Foster understands the advantages<br />

of young players learning golf at a young age,<br />

he is aware there are factors that deter<br />

potential junior golfers from committing to<br />

the game.<br />

“The number one factor is cost. (<strong>Golf</strong>)<br />

has always been a rich man’s sport. The cost<br />

of playing is high, which makes it tough for<br />

families,” said Foster. “It is also a time-consuming<br />

sport. It takes a lifetime to learn and<br />

a lot of time to practice. ... Lower the rate.<br />

Make it more kid-friendly.”<br />

That is exactly the advice he gave to the<br />

staff at Derryfield Country Club of Manchester,<br />

N.H., when the club was struggling with<br />

gaining new junior members for its camp.<br />

Foster said the country club had about 15<br />

junior members when its annual price for<br />

juniors was $400. When Derryfield lowered<br />

its price to $99, it attracted about 250<br />

junior members.<br />

Foster concluded that the main way to<br />

attract more junior players is to “find the<br />

current cost for junior members to play and<br />

cut it in half.” He said, “Bump the cost down.<br />

Give the kids clubs and lessons. Once they<br />

get started, they’ll get hooked.”<br />

The legendary Jack Nicklaus said, “A kid<br />

grows up a lot faster on the golf course. <strong>Golf</strong><br />

teaches you how to behave.”<br />

Getting kids involved in golf while they<br />

are young will not only revive the industry, it<br />

will also benefit junior golfers for the rest of<br />

their lives. l<br />
