THE 2020 Western Amateur Championship at Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel Indiana, designed by World Golf Hall of Fame designer Pete Dye. The par 3, 6th hole.    ______________________________________________________________________

2020 Western Amateur Medalist Angus Flanagan of England (L), with WGA President Kevin Buggy at Crooked Stick.

Rounds 3 & 4 of the Western Amateur at Crooked Stick Golf Club, were played in conditions it’s designer Pete Dye would have loved.

It rained most of the day, and rained harder as the 6 for 1 playoff took place at dinner time.

But medalist Angus Flanagan who resides in England, when he is not playing on the University of Minnesota golf team, says the cooler rainy weather was right up his alley. “The other players in my group all started putting on the rain pants and shirts when the drops started falling. I just played in my golf shirt and kept my arms free to swing, and it paid off.”

With the help of a late bogey by Sam Bennett of Texas and Texas AM University, it was Flanagan who at 12 under par became the tournament medalist. But Bennett wasn’t too concerned adding,” the Western Amateur champion isn’t decided on Thursday.”

Flanagan warmed up for the Western Amateur by playing on the PGA Tour last week playing in the 3M Open, since he earned a sponsors exemption by winning the Minnesota State Open. Flanagan missed the cut by six shots with a pair of 73’s (+4). this week he has made two cuts and now has to win 4 matches.

The #2 rated amateur in the world Ricky Castillo from Yorba Linda California is the hunt after finishing at 7 under par, and he will be the #4 seed in the match play round of the Sweet Sixteen.

There was some excitement for Maxwell (Max) Moldovan of Uniontown Ohio, a member of the Ohio State golf team, and former AJGA player of the year. Moldovan made a Hole-In-One on the par 3 13th hole. Moldovan’s ace was from 198 yards with 6-Iron, but never saw the ball go in the hole. While walking up the cart path on the way to the green, he was approached by a rules official. The official asked Moldovan if he hit the second shot in his group, and Moldovan answered yes. Then the official told him he would not need his putter, his ball was in the cup.

Moldovan said,” then we all went crazy.”

What else was crazy was watching the final 16 players, try to assemble under Covid-19 social distancing guidelines for the sweet sixteen photo. At least the rain stopped for the picture. Match play will see the round of 16 in the morning, and the quarterfinals in the afternoon. Before four players advance to Saturday’s semi-finals and championship match.

JACK IS BACK. Actually the #GOAT was never gone.

But what the 18-time major champion has done, is created a limited-edition set of irons as a joint-venture with the legendary Japanese Club makers at Miura Golf.

This series of irons are for serious collectors who enjoy beauty and function.

The set is a classic Miura blade, with the Nicklaus preferred specifications. The partnership on the this set of irons mixes 60 years of the Miura’s club making perfection, with the Nicklaus thoughts on design created over his 60 years on design thoughts.

Jack Nicklaus with the Miura Golf design team.

These clubs are the first in a decade to “Bear” the Nicklaus name.

Pre-Order is available now, by going to Miuragolf.com/Nicklaus. the first sets will arrive in early 2021.

Nicklaus first went to the Miura factory in 2014, and was only the second person to sit in the famed Miura grinding line first chair, where only Miura-san has ever sat.

“The day Jack visited the factory was the best day of my life,” Miura-san said. “My family is honored to produce this set of iron’s for golf’s greatest champion and see our families crest share a clubhead with his seal of approval.”

The Nicklaus Miura Blade Iron, Pre-order now.

“I’ve spent decades designing golf equipment, and I cherish  the painstaking craftsmanship that goes into enhancing the tools of my trade,” Nicklaus said. “The Miura family and I share this passion for doing everything the right way and leaving no detail overlooked, and we have worked closely in this collaboration to highlight the superior subtleties of Miura forged steel.”

The goal in this partnership was to create the Miura-san club, with a modern day version of the Nicklaus blade. What Nicklaus asked for, was a set of irons created with a standard offset, uniformed through the set. Miura clubs have been built since 1957, they are individually handcrafted and will never be mass-produced. For more see Miuragolf.com/Nicklaus.

THE FOREST DUNES GOLF CLUB in Roscommon Michigan. The new 10-hole par 3 short course will open this Saturday, adding another reason to go visit Forest Dunes.

THERE IS A NEW LOOP IN TOWN AND it’s not created by Tom Doak, but by Keith Rhebb and Riley Johns. The new loop adds another dimension to the destination of Forest Dunes.

The original Forest Dunes course by Tom Weiskopf ranks 28th on the Golf Digest Top 100 you can play list. Doak’s Loop Courses sit 45 (Black) and 47 (Red) on the same list. Toss in the two-acres of the Hilltop Putting Course, a great clubhouse, lodge and villas, and now the addition of the Par 3, course makes this destination even more attractive to golfers of all skill levels.

Owner Lew Thompson wanted the course done this summer, so Rhebb and Johns got it done and grassed in 81 days.

“We essentially had Carte-Blanche from Lew, which was awesome, and really the only way could get the project completed in time,” says Rhebb. Thompson requested the course be playful, and that though was carried by Rhebb and Johns through out the building process.

The new par 3 course at Forest Dunes.

Playful and “aceful” was what Rhebb and Johns delivered.

The greens sloop towards certain pin locations, which could increase the odds for a golfer actually make a hole-in-one.

Holes one and ten are crossover holes with a tree adding protection from ball flight problems.

Holes 1 & 10 are both viewable from the pavilion, where the social scene at Forest Dunes takes place, so great shots there could get a great response from the gallery.

“When you come to Forest Dunes, we want you to have a good time,” says Thompson, who says music, bare feet and eightsomes are all fair game on the new par-three course if that’s what it takes to make the game more accessible and fun. “What Keith and Riley have built is bringing a new life and energy to the property. It’s going to bring people together and make their time here more enjoyable.”

Forest Dunes sits among 1,300 acres of woodlands that make up part of the Huron National Forest. There are new villas and cottages that have recently opened as part of a series of improvements. For more details see ForestDunesGolf.com

AM week continues for the Western Golf Association, with the Western Amateur at Pete Dye’s Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel Indiana.

First up a job well done by everyone with the Women’s Western Golf Association (WWGA) at Prestwick Country Club in Frankfort. During these times anyone who puts on a first class tournament, and makes it work has done an excellent job. It is too bad that the galleries were limited, but at least the championship did not have to be canceled. The board and the membership at Prestwick should be complimented as well.

The 2021 WWGA Amateur will be played at the Park Ridge Country Club, and architect Greg Martin is there now working on the renovations for next year’s event. I’ll be out there tomorrow checking out the improvements, before heading out to Crooked Stick later this week.

I HAVE TO THANK Susan Hess Owner & Designer of the Prospect Heights based Golftini for filling in on Golfers on Golf radio with Bill Berger and I, with Ed Stevenson still on the multi-show DL (shoulder). I’m wishing Ed a full and speedy recovery, and Bill and I hope he can rejoin us in the studio before long. Ladies for golf wear that looks great on and off the golf course, visit Golftiniwear.com.

The new Cog Hill Long Drive Pale Ale, available only at Cog Hill.

THE DRIVE IS ON, the long drive that is at Cog Hill. While the World Long Drive Championships are off for this year, the Cog Hill Long Drive Pale Ale is not, and it’s hot. As in selling, temperature, wise it’s right where you want it-come mid-summer. Good and Cold.

Cog Hill is among the clubs that are creating their own beer, and Cog Hill has teamed up with Pollyanna Brewing in Lemont to create the brew for Cog Hill.

I finally tried one at Cog Hill last week, since I was in need of a cold one to go along with my Dubs-burger, still one of the best burgers in town.

I did not try it on-tap but in the can since I wanted one to take home. The can is really well done with a course picture of Dubsbread (Cog 4) on one side and the famed photo of Joe Jemsek hitting his famous 501 yard drive off the tower at the Worlds Fair in Chicago.

If there is any bad news, it’s that Cog Hill is running out of LD Pale Ale, and might have a short gap where they have run out. Good news is that they are ordering more. Bad news is that they can’t sell it to go. I suggested a short-term license with the community for the annual holiday sale around December 1st in the 2-4 building. Cases to go, what a wonderful idea. Here’s hoping GM Troy Newport and the Jemseks can make that work. If your wondering, I’m not an expert on beer taste-testing, but I thought it tasted a bit like a Leinenkugel Summer-Shandy.

LEN ZIEHM and I will podcast this week on Wednesday, and Volume 20 for 2020 should post on Thursday. As usual, I’m sure Len will have a lot to say. His Daily Herald column this week, will preview next weeks Illinois Open at the White Eagle Golf Club.

SCHAUMBURG GOLF CLUB finally gets the last nine open from renovation this Saturday August 1st. A great job done by architect Todd Quitno, Schaumburg Golf Club GM Jon Parsons and everyone involved. I can’t wait to play all 27 of the renovated holes in the next week or so.

AT SETTLERS HILL in Geneva, golfers will soon see some work getting done on property for the upcoming renovation. It will not interfere with play, so enjoy “The Hill” for the rest of the 2020 golf season.

THE WISCONSIN State Amateur this week tee’s off at the historic Milwaukee Country Club, what’s got the locals north of the border concerned, is that there is a flood of players coming up this year from Illinois. At least 25 of them. But who can blame top amateur players from going there to play, good event, great golf course. I wish I could get in the field.

THE CHICAGO PUTTER is coming out. Sean Toulon, which is now Odyssey Toulon putters, has created a new line of putters named after cities. The Seattle, the Las Vegas, the Atlanta, the Austin, the Memphis, the San Diego and the Chicago. Go online and check them out.

The Gog Blog returns all week. RS

Women’s Western Amateur at Prestwick CC. Champion Brigitte Thibault on Saturday July 25, 2020
WGA/Charles Cherney

The 120th Women’s Western Amateur goes to Bridgitte Thibault, of Rosemere, Quebec, who defeated Jackie Lucena, of Chico California, by the score of 4 & 3. The second Canadian to win claim the crown in four years.

Thibault is a senior on the Fresno State University Women’s golf team, and she is the Mountain West Conference champion from 2019.

“I didn’t want to get my hopes up, because my game right now is kind of a rollarcoaster,” said Thibault. “But I did gain some momentum from my play on Friday, and just kept the faith, and didn’t give up.”

It was Thibault who took an early 2 Up lead after seven holes, but Lucena didn’t quit winning holes 8 & 9 to square the match at the turn.

But from there it was all Thibault, who won the 10th, the 13th and 14th holes with a par, and closed out the match with a birdie on the 15th hole. Lucena call the the match “a grind” and admitted she didn’t have her best game. Both players earned exemptions into the 2020 U.S. Women’s Amateur at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville Maryland from August 3-9.

Lucena admitted to being very excited to be playing in the U.S. Amateur, since she has never even been to a USGA Championship before. Thibault is waiting to see what lies ahead in college golf. Thibault made the Quarterfinals in the 2018 WWGA Amateur Championship at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville.

MICHELLE WIE-WEST has been named an Assistant Captain to the 2021 Team USA Solheim Cup by Captain Pat Hurst, the Cup will be played the Inverness Club outside of Toldeo Ohio.

CHRIS CHARNAS and the Wilmette Illinois based Links Capital Advisors have announced the sale of the Kings Creek Golf Club, in Spring Hill Tennessee. For more listings on courses for sale see LinksCapitalAdvisors.com.

Club Champion is the nations largest club fitter with over 70 locations across America.

While some companies are having trouble with bricks and mortars stores, one golf fitting company is having success.

Club Champion, that had overall growth of 46% in 2019, is widely being recognized by golfers.

“We offer a service every avid golfer can benefit from,” said Nick Sherburne, Club Champion’s founder. “Our business model works because we can show measurable improvement. The retail landscape has changed but the success of our process has not.” A Golf Digest study says golfers getting fit by Club Champion are lowering scores by an average of up to six shots per round, and 21 yards off the tee.

At one point earlier this year, all but 5 stores were closed due to Covid-19, but there was a large bounce-back in June. With a 49% increase over June sales of 2019. Club Champion is taking safe measures during the pandemic, with limited amount of customers in stores, masks and other social distancing guidelines at all times.

Medalists Caroline Curtis- University of Alabama (L) and Blair Stockett Mississippi State University (R) are the medalists for the 2020 WWGA National Amateur Championship.

Tournament golf in the Chicago area make a triumphant return with the playing of the 120th Women’s Western Amateur at Prestwick Country Club.

In late June, the Women’s Western Junior Championship at the Grove Country Club in Long Grove Illinois was cancelled due to the Covid-19 Virus Pandemic.

This weeks field consisted of 120 players, and a full field turned out to be an outstanding accomplishment, after around 25 players had to withdraw from the championship, due to visa issues, travel issues, or exposure to people with Covid 19. There was no known cases of players who withdrew, actually testing positive for Covid-19.

By early Wednesday evening the match play field of 32 players was set, after the completion of a 5 players for 2 spots playoff, that went three holes before ending on the 18th green behind Prestwick’s clubhouse.

The WWGA National Amateur Trophy, with the 2 USGA Women’s Amateur flags that will be awarded to the two finalists on Saturday.

Micaela Farah of Lima Peru won the last spot into the field of 32 for the match play bracket.

Farah proved right out of the blocks that she belonged, when she defeated medalist and No.1 seed Caroline Curtis who plays on the University of Alabama golf team by a 3 & 1 score.

Co-medalist Blair Stockett a member of the Mississippi State golf team, had a touch opening match defeating the #31 seed Noor Ahmed 1 Up. Stockett was then defeated in 19 holes in the Round of 16 by Taylor Kehoe. Kehoe is one of three players remaining from Canada, joining both Mary Parsons and Brigitte Thibault in the Quarterfinals. The remaining other five players are from America, all from different states.

The final remaining local player from Illinois, was Lauren Beaudreau of Lemont who plays for Notre Dame University. Beaudreau lost her round of 16 match in 20 holes to Jackie Lucena from California.

Prestwick Country Club is hosting it’s second WWGA national event, having previously hosted the 1972 WWGA Junior Championship, won by Nancy Lopez.

Click here to hear interviews with Co-Medalist Caroline Curtis, and remaining high seed #4 Erica Shepherd of Greenwood Indiana, and member of the Duke University golf team.

Click here to hear interviews with Co-Medalist Blair Stockett and University of Illinois senior Tristyn Nowlin, 2018 WWGA Amateur runner up at Mistwood Golf Club. Nowlin advanced to match play as the 29th seed, and lost her first match to #4 Erica Shepherd.

Quarterfinal and semi-final play will take place on Friday, with the championship match teeing off at 7:30 Am on Saturday morning. If the match concludes early enough on Saturday morning, the champion will join Golfers on Golf radio live on the air.

The Baths of Blackwolf Run are under construction in the Meadow Valley.

Only in Kohler Wisconsin, could golf get mixed in with baths. 10 par 3, style holes, and 4 baths.

A tip of the cap or golf visor to the history of the Kohler Company.

Kohler that’s been home to bathroom and shower area products, is bringing some of that to a new 10 hole par 3 course, that’s being designed by architect Chris Lutzke along with Kohler Company Executive Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler Jr.. Kohler created the idea of the baths.

The idea started with the Kohler Golf team now headed up by Vice President of Global Golf, Retail and Landscape, Dirk Willis. Willis told Golfers on Golf that he brought the idea to the company some years back during his first stint with the company. Willis left and went to California to work for a golf company for several months, but returned to Kohler after there was an opportunity to return with promotion into his current position.

After returning to Kohler, he proposed the idea again and with success this time, as Kohler was looking for something new as part of it’s golf experience at Destination Kohler.

There was just over 20 acres available between holes 1 and 11 on the Meadow Valley Golf Course at Blackwolf Run. In between the golf holes, will be 4 “baths” with beach like entrances, and a sandy bottom. The ten golf holes can be altered so play can continue, while groups of “bathers” enjoy the water. Willis would not speculate on what the new logo “could be” for the Baths at Blackwolf.

Click here to hear the interview with Kohler VP of Golf Dirk Willis.

The goal is to have the project wrapped up and ready to open by June of 2021, so that the “Baths of Blackwolf Run” get their proper due, before the delayed into 2021 Ryder Cup arrives in September.

Some early photo’s of the project have just been taken by the Kohler Company, and when photo’s get approved for release by Herbert Kohler to the media, they will get posted here at Golfersongolf.com.

Kohler Company is hoping to wrap up some final legal issues and other concerns to the Sheboygan property they owner near Lake Michigan, that will get developed into the resorts fifth full 18 hole course. That course-still unnamed will be the first course not fully designed by the late Pete Dye. Who the designer will be is still a question, and it could be Lutzke the long time Dye-disciple. But it might not be Lutzke, and for now only Herb Kohler knows the answer to that question.

TEE TIMES are filling quickly on all four courses including Whistling Straits for late September, now that the tee sheet is open with the Ryder Cup being pushed into 2021.

Over 1500 tee times were sold on the Straits Course within 10 days of the Ryder Cup being postponed. So book quickly if September in Kohler is on your hit list, see Destination Kohler and Americanclubresort.com.
