Discover bliss and tranquility at a retreat near you. by Lisa Kasanicky Founder, Arizona Spa Girls, Ask a crowd of locals which spas rank as their favorites, and you’re likely to get answers as varied as the colors of an Arizona sunset. With the Valley area alone claiming stake to more than 30 world-class resort and hotel spas, Arizona has become the hot seat of leisure and relaxation. What makes this area such a highly sought spa destination? The answer lies in the transformational treatments that define this spa-rich landscape.

Back in days before Arizona became the 48th state, it was rugged territory where relaxation meant a scorpion-free bed and decent horse hitch. The cowboy vibe still lingers in the air of the historical Wigwam Resort, where guests can revel in the Wigwam Warm Water Ritual at the resort’s Red Door Spa. The service starts with a foot bath and ceremonial tea, followed by a clay and cornmeal body mask, scalp treatment, foot massage, juniper and sage aroma bath, and a final massage using its signature desert sage massage oil.

Inside the Mind of

Kyle Stanley PGA pro Kyle Stanley shares his thoughts with Golfer’s Guide. By Karen Rhodes Karen Rhodes: The beginning of this year got off to a bit of a rocky start, but then you had a big win that catapulted your popularity. What did you learn in that loss that helped you secure the big win? Kyle Stanley: I would characterize the start of my year as exciting, but certainly not rocky by any means. I started playing well in Hawaii and continued that good play into San Diego. While I didn’t win the event, I probably gained much more from what happened versus if I had actually won. I think that a lot more people came to know who I was, and those that do follow golf got a better understanding of who I am and my personality. During that stretch of losing in the playoff at Torrey Pines and coming back to win the following week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, I learned a lot about myself, and all of those experiences have made me not only a better player but a better person. I was pretty devastated Sunday night after San Diego, but I am not sure I would go back and change a thing. KR: What kind of impact did that win have on your scheduling and your time commitments, both professionally and personally? KS: My life has certainly gotten busier as a result of winning in Phoenix and finishing as a 14

014-015.Stanley.indd 14

runner-up in San Diego. From a time standpoint, I have had a huge increase in media requests, and I am doing my best to honor as many as I can while trying to keep my routines the same so I can continue to improve and play well. Winning has many perks, some of which are getting into bigger events like the Masters and the World Golf Championships. As a result, I am able to set my schedule farther in advance and plan better. Having success certainly increases the demands on your time, so learning to be efficient and disciplined is definitely a priority of mine. KR: Who, if anyone, provided any advice after that loss that you took to heart and that has helped you learn from the experience? How do you expect to use that advice to help advance your growth in the game? KS: I don’t know if there was any one thing that was said to me or by a particular person. I had an outpouring of support from fans, and that made me feel great, to know so many people were out there pulling for me. I also have great family support and a terrific team that was by my side the entire time. They all provided great perspective that maybe wasn’t that clear to me at the time because my emotions were so raw. I played great golf in San Diego. What I chose to do and was encouraged to do was focus on all the good things I did that

2012 ISSUE 2

week, and that is absolutely something I did that allowed me to move on and carry a lot of confidence into Phoenix the following week. KR: What are your plans and goals for this year? KS: My main goals are always process-related, as I see that as the best road to improvement. I also set more specific goals. At the beginning of the year I had as goals to make the Accenture World Golf Matchplay (the top 64 players in the world rankings qualify), win my first PGA Tour event, qualify for the Masters and make the Ryder Cup team. I have achieved three out of four so far, so I am very pleased to say the least. As I reach certain goals, I add others. But again, the main goal is to be process-driven and improve each year. KR: What strengths will help you get there? What challenges do you foresee? KS: Well, I think my passion to be the best I can be, my work ethic and my desire to keep getting better are truly my strengths as a golfer. I just need to stay focused, disciplined and keeping working hard, and we will see what happens. This game has many ups and downs, and it can take you to the greatest heights and the lowest depths. Maintaining a great attitude regardless of what the game brings you is probably the greatest challenge. KR: We know you’d like to win all four majors, but does one of them stand out to you as the most desirable win? KS: You’re right, I’d like to win them all, but would be satisfied with winning any one of them. But if I had to choose one, it would be the Masters. There is such an unbelievable tradition, aura and history about the Masters, Augusta National and all of the great champions that have worn the Green Jacket. I remember every year how excited I would be when

the TV ads started running, promoting the Masters, and I remember always sitting glued to the TV set watching every round with my dad. To win at Augusta and wear the Green Jacket would be a dream come true, for sure. KR: What are your hobbies when you’re not on the course? KS: I am a pretty hard worker and very focused on my profession. When I have an off week, I don’t like to do a lot, honestly. I catch up on missed sleep and generally just hang out and recharge until I leave for the next tournament. KR: What other sports and teams do you follow? Tell us about your connection to Gonzaga University. Are you a huge basketball fan? KS: I am a big Clemson fan obviously, and because of growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I am a huge Gonzaga basketball fan. Ever since I can remember, I have been a Zags fan and have watched them religiously since I was a small kid. Doesn’t mean I have any less love for Clemson! KR: Were you able to get out and enjoy the Phoenix area while you were there for the tournament? What was your favorite thing about the area? KS: Tournament week I am pretty focused on my preparations for the event, so I didn’t go out much during the event. Afterwards, we did celebrate some around town which was a lot of fun. KR: What did you enjoy the most about the Phoenix Open, besides winning? KS: WINNING! Besides winning, the crowds are unbelievable. There are so many people and they are all having a blast. Plus the support that I received from the crowd was amazing.

Visitors to Arizona have always relished the state’s world-class golf. In fact, there are more than 300 golf courses across the state, some garnering such honors as Travel & Leisure’s Top Ten U.S. Golf Courses. Arizona basks in sunshine more than 300 days a year, and summer is the perfect time to take advantage of a variety of special savings and different entertainment options. Famous for palm-tree–shrouded resorts, desert golf courses, elegant fashion centers, and uniquely Southwestern museums and attractions, Phoenix makes it easy to have fun, relax and beat the summer heat, all at an affordable price. One of the greatest benefits of visiting Greater Phoenix in the summer is that you can take advantage of unparalleled resort and golf discounts. Special summer packages can save you up to 50 percent on many accommodations May through August, providing some of the city’s greatest comforts at a price that doesn’t hurt your pocket. There are nearly 500 hotels to choose from, including more than 40 luxury resorts, so you’re sure to find what suits your taste. An example: Customize your own Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North getaway with summer rates starting at just $149 per night (down from the usual $400 or so) from June 1–Aug. 31, 2012. Or, if spa

relaxation is more your thing, don’t miss the fresh retreats offered by the destination and day spas found at Phoenix resorts. Of course, you can’t go home without a souvenir. What better excuse to indulge at some of the best shopping in the Southwest? Sprawling fashion centers. Charming vintage shops. Designer stores. Hipster boutiques. Bargain outlets. Museum gift shops. Maybe you can’t buy happiness, but Greater Phoenix sure makes it fun to try. While Phoenix’s perpetual sunshine might tempt you to find a secluded spot under a palm tree, to indulge in a massage or to sip margaritas next to the swimming pool, the city also offers a variety of indoor attractions and activities. See instruments from about 200 countries and territories at the interactive Musical Instrument Museum. Experience an oasis in the desert at the Phoenix Art Museum’s new fashion design exhibition, “The Sea,” exploring the ocean’s timeless influence on fashion. For a unique desert experience, stroll through the Desert Botanical Garden to see desert plants, or visit the Heard Museum for Native American art and culture.

The Hungry Golfer Standing on top of the world—no cares, no worries—where am I, heaven? Close! If you answered Different Pointe of View at Point Hilton Tapatio Cliff’s Resort, congratulations, you guessed right! What a spectacular, wonderful evening I had there this past Friday evening as I attended an Insider’s View Winemaker Dinner, presented on this day by Different Pointe of View and Roth Estate Winery of Sonoma County, California. What a wonderful evening, something very special! Different Pointe of View has been around for the past 25 years. It used to be a great place to meet and kick off the weekend in a high-spirited manner. Twenty five years ago, this locale was the place to be, with music, dancing and partying. Different Pointe has changed into an elegant, sophisticated destination with great attention to detail, ambiance, and excellent food and drink. Dinner began at 6:15 p.m. sharp, on the terrace, which provides unparalleled views of the Phoenix skyline. Our group of about 15 began the evening sipping Roth Estate Chardonnay and nibbling on an assortment of appetizers as yet another sensational Phoenix sunset unfolded before our eyes. The group was then ushered inside for the dinner and introduced to Chef Anthony DeMuro, an extraordinary chef who cooked this amazing dinner:

Third Course Ellensburg seared lamb loin; spring English pea and parmesan risotto; Oregon morels and caramelized cipollini balsamic reduction; Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

First Course Pan-seared diver scallops; Penn Cove mussels, clams and Laughing Bird shrimp; lemon-fennel butter sauce; Alexander Valley Sauvignon Blanc

As ever, hungry, The Hungry Golfer

Second Course Line-Caught wild Alaskan King Salmon; sweet corn and quinoa salad; lemon-scented avocado mousse; piquillo pepper pesto; Sonoma Valley Pinot Noir

Fourth Course Pineapple-and-lime upside-down cake; brown sugar pineapple passion fruit sorbet Everything, dare I say, was phenomenal! I need to add: We also had a teacup of lobster bisque, a specialty of the house and not to be missed! Everyone had such a great time. Dinner concluded around 10 p.m., and the night flew by. Different Point of View is one of only 10 restaurants in Arizona to receive the Best Award of Excellence by Wine Spectator, in addition to receiving the AAA Four-Diamond Award for 21 consecutive years, and the Best Restaurant Award by Phoenix Magazine. Downstairs is the challenging, but fun Lookout Mountain Golf Club, now a Troon Golf-managed facility. And do not forget the adjoining Pointe In Tyme eatery and bar, where you can also indulge in that amazing lobster bisque—yum! Whether celebrating or trying to forget your most recent round of golf, you will always remember these two Hilton Pointe Tapatio eateries as superb culinary experiences.
