The Buzz

Medinah and WGA connect

Once upon a time, Medinah Country Club came to the rescue of the Western Golf Association. It was 1961, and the WGA was in desperate need of revamping how it conducted the Western Open. For decades, the WGA took the tournament to cities and clubs that wanted it. The hosts were responsible for the purse, and the WGA ran the golf. That worked until 1961, when the board of Scioto Country Club decided as 1960 closed that it just couldn’t raise the purse money in 1961. Scrambling, WGA executive director Marshall Dann and his board arranged for the 1961 Western to be played at Blythefield Country Club, near Grand Rapids, with the WGA taking over supplying the purse and raking in the gate. But what about 1962? Dann and WGA director Cliff Domin, nicknamed Mr. Medinah around his club, huddled. Domin offered Medinah for 1962. Dann accepted. It was an instant success. Arnold Palmer took a look while helicoptering in for his first practice round and said, “Why don’t they play the Western Open here every year?” The WGA came back in 1966, but soon after settled at Butler National Golf Club, and subsequently at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. With the vagabond days having returned, the retitled BMW Championship needs a Chicago-area site in odd-numbered years. Conway Farms is hosting this year and in 2017, as it did in 2013, but the hat-trick will

be it for the Lake Forest enclave. What about 2019? Once again, enter Medinah. Club members voted June 13 to host the BMW four years from now, with a vast majority voting in favor. While the revamped No. 1 was looked at, everyone agreed that No. 3, the traditional site of championship golf at the club, will be the course of action. There will be much less disruption to club play than there was in 2012, when Medinah hosted the Ryder Cup. Little if any tournament facilities will be placed on No. 1. It also means that Medinah is essentially out of the running for an PGA or USGA activity in the next little while. While the PGA and Medinah had been talking, the money the PGA was offering to host a PGA Championship wasn’t in the ballpark of previous $3 million payments for the 1999 or 2006 PGAs. It’s a busy time for Medinah. Fresh off the renovation of No. 1, the club’s embarking on a restoration of No. 2, the most original of the three courses designed by Tom Bendelow. Rather than a rerouting (as was done on No. 3) or a rebuilding (as Tom Doak did on No. 1), this will be a restoration of original green sizes and repositioning of bunkers to fit where the ball flies today. FINALLY: Oak Meadows closes after a July 7 soiree for the renovation under the careful eye of Greg Martin. The plan is to reopen in 2017.

The Grill Room

by Tim Cronin

The untouchable origin of the modern Slam

L

ater this month, Jordan Spieth goes for the third leg of the modern Grand Slam at the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. The location is fitting for several reasons, not the least of which is that the whole modern slam business came into the spotlight on those very links 45 years ago. For years, the story has been told thusly: Arnold Palmer and Mark McCormack, the sports business pioneer who grew up in Chicago, dreamed up the idea of the modern slam after Palmer won the 1960 U.S. Open. “Go to St. Andrews and win, and you’ll need only to win the PGA to win a modern Grand Slam,” McCormack is said to have told his first and most valuable client. Not quite. There was another version, one promulgated by Palmer in “A Golfer’s Life,” his 2000 autobiography. The King and buddy Bob Drum, the Pittsburgh Press golf writer, were flying to Europe after Palmer’s comeback success at Cherry Hills – driving the first green of the final round in a huff after Drum told Palmer of his Open chances, “You blew it this morning!” – and were talking about Bobby Jones’ 1930 Grand Slam. “What about a modern slam?” Palmer was said to ask Drum. “Winning the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA would constitute a modern Grand Slam.” The Drummer was said to be hesitant at first,

then warmed to the notion and, upon arriving with Palmer in Ireland for the Canada Cup, the international team championship played that year before the British Open, told overseas writers of Palmer’s grand quest. Oscar Fraley Great story, no? Great story, yes. But it’s only a story. Palmer flew to Ireland with Sam Snead, his partner on the U.S. team for the Canada Cup, but without Drum. To get there, Palmer and Snead first flew from Denver to New York. On that plane was United Press International sports columnist Oscar Fraley, who had covered the Open from Cherry Hills. Palmer told Fraley, referencing Bobby Jones’ achievement, “Now I’ve got Grand Slam ideas of my own. I’d like to add the British Open and the PGA Championship to those Masters and U.S. Open championships this year.” Palmer added, “I decided early this year that if by some chance I won both the Masters and the (U.S.) Open, I’d go to Britain for their Open now that I can afford it.” The seed was placed in Palmer’s head, he said, when he read Jones’ biography. It germinated when he birdied the last two holes to overhaul Ken Venturi win the Masters, then began to bloom when he birdied six of the first seven at Cherry Hills to rush though the field and win the National Open. But it wilted when he took sec-

ond, a stroke behind Kel Nagle, at St. Andrews. And Palmer never did win the PGA. Now, McCormack certainly pushed Palmer to play the British Open in 1960, knowing that while the prize money was next to nothing, the exposure there would boost Palmer’s budding endorsement business. The team competition immediately before made it that much more logical. The trip was planned before he won the U.S. Open. Indeed, Palmer was talking up a Grand Slam in March, at the DeSoto Open in Sarasota, Fla. Fraley’s report ran in papers across the country on June 20, 1960, two days after Palmer worked his magic at altitude. That night, Fraley reported on Floyd Patterson pummeling Ingemar Johansson to regain the world heavyweight championship, then flew to Ireland to catch up with Palmer and Snead – and, he wrote later, to collect from both of them on a bet that Johansson would win. We suspect it was Fraley who then told his writing brethren of Palmer’s notion of a modern Grand Slam. The Drummer? Sequestered in Pittsburgh, he first mentioned Palmer’s slam concept on July 3, between columns about Dick Groat and the prospects for the PGA at Firestone. You probably had not heard of Oscar Fraley for a long time, if at all, before this epistle. But on the side, he wrote a book with lasting television and cinematic legs: “The Untouchables.” Soon, we’ll know if the Grand Slam is that, or within young Spieth’s grasp.

19th Palmer Cup

Fit for a King Arnold Palmer welcomes the teams to Rich Harvest Farms before the first ball of the Palmer Cup was struck in anger.

An all-American rout

By Tim Cronin –––––

The main question entering the 19th Palmer Cup, created by and named for Arnold Daniel Palmer, was whether or not the collegians participating would be at their best following the conclusion of the college season. After all, the

NCAA tournament, which many of the players participated in, is a mental grind. So are the lower-level NCAA and NAIA showcases. The answer, handed in with authority: The United States team was very much at its best. The American squad, a mixture of Division I and lower-level lads, trounced their pals from Eu-

rope who attend Stateside schools all three days. The margin was 18-12, almost equal with the 18.5-11.5 trouncing the Europeans out at Walton Heath Golf Club in England last year. The turnaround can be credited to the Americans keeping their foot to the pedal, wanting to finish their foes off.

Just ask Beau Hossler. the Californian who represents Texas in college. He led the U.S. Open while in high school and scored a big victory in last year’s Western Amateur at Beverly, a title he’ll defend in August at Rich Harvest. “We’ve got a lot of guys who really cared about what we’re doing here,” Hossler said. He went three-for-four across the four-match competition, including a 2 and 1 victory over Pep Angles of France, which just happened to guarantee the outcome in the Americans’ favor. The U.S. had a 13.5-6.5 lead entering the 10 singles matches. Europe’s Clement Sordot took the opening match, a 2 and 1 victory over Anders Albertson, but the U.S. won the next four to lock up the Cup. That allowed American coach Bruce Heppler to breathe a sigh of relief. He came into the final day warily, even though his players had posted exemplary numbers in the first three matches. “Playing with a big lead is the hardest thing in sports,” Heppler said. “I just told them I wasn’t going to tell them how things were going until their match was over. I wanted to keep them focused on their matches.” That worked. Probably just about anything would have worked with Robby Shelton of Alabama and Hunter Stewart of Vanderbilt going 4-0. Maverick McNealy also went 3-1, paired with Hossler in splitting a pair of partner matches and going 2-0 in singles. His teammates were so impressed, they voted him the exemption into next year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational at the King’s Bay Hill Resort in Orlando, Fla. And McNealy was so impressed by his Rich Harvest caddie, Zach Urwiler of Mooseheart, that he invited Urwiler to caddie for him at

Campbell, Hardy make U.S. Open splashes Campbell contended early, Hardy opened door for 14 By Tim Cronin –––––

It’s not often that the entire Illinois-connected contingent at the U.S. Open makes the cut. That’s one more reason the 115th Open at Chambers Bay was special. All four in the field who were either born or have an affiliation with the state played 72 holes. Amazingly, the two amateurs of the four led the way. Brian Campbell, weeks after graduating from Illinois, briefly led the Open on Thursday before settling into the field and finishing at 5over-par 285, his opening 3-under 67 the indication to all that he can play with the pros. (He’ll do so, this time for cash, at the John Deere Classic.) Campbell was followed by Illinois’ Nick Hardy. Despite three bogeys on Friday’s last four holes, the Northbrook native made the cut on the number – 5-over 145 – and brought 14 other players into the weekend. He finished at 10-over 290, scoring 2-under 68 on Sunday, as did Campbell. “They came up to me this morning, kind of laughed about it,” Hardy said of Webb Simpson and a handful of others. “I just happened to be the last ones on the course. Just golf kind of. “Coming down on 8 and 9, I kind of knew that 5-over was actually going to make it. Made a really bad swing at 9 and happened to make bogey.” Pekin-bred D.A.

96th CDGA Amateur Championship

Burge emerges ahead of Kelly Redshirt Illinois senior trumps Ohio State regular, 1 up, at Knollwood

By Tim Cronin –––––

The first hint that it could be Alex Burge’s week at the Knollwood Club wasn’t a hint at all, unless an anvil hitting the rest of the field in the head is a hint. Burge, a senior at Illinois who redshirted this year, scattered 10 birdies across the 36 holes of stroke-play qualifying for the 96th CDGA Amateur Championship. That was more than good enough to earn the Bloomington standout the medalist’s title and the top seed for the Sweet Sixteen. For once, the curse of the medalist did not take place. Not only was there not a quick exit, Burge was the last man standing. He took on Ohio State’s Tim “Tee-K” Kelly in the championship match and scored a 1 up victory in the 36-hole final on June 25. That adds Burge’s name to a list of winners that starts with Chick Evans, who had the great good sense to capture the 1914 inaugural. “I’ve played CDGA events my whole life, so to join the list of winners is something special,” Burge said. His title triumph was the closest anyone came to stopping him, with Kelly 3 up in the morning round of the championship match. Burge’s first three matches were progressively closer, but when you open with a 6 and 5 rout over Sean Graham,

closer is relative. His 5 and 4 victory over Charlie Netzel wasn’t close at all. And if he was worried during his 3 and 2 win over Derek Meinhart in the semifinals, well, it didn’t show. Burge, as might be expected of someone who plays for Illinois coach Mike Small, is one cool customer. Small, with a loaded team, held Burge in reserve this year, but he’ll be a Fighting Illini regular in the 2015-16 college season. “I did a really good job taking it one shot at a time,” Burge said. “The course definitely caught my eye. It is tree-lined, similar to a course I grew up on.” That would be The Den at Fox Creek, though that winds as much through luxury homes than pure parkland. But it worked for Burge. He clawed his way back against Kelly with birdies on Nos. 15, 16 and 18 – the CDGA’s Matt Baylor called it “a 35-foot snake” – to go to lunch all square. Burge would never trail in the afternoon, but the match was all square after 32 holes. Burge’s birdie on the par-4 15th via a 20-foot putt put him 1 up, and when Kelly sailed his tee shot on the 16th into the right tees, Burge went dormie 2 and effectively settled things. “It was my worst drive of the week at probably the worst time it could happen,” Kelly said. Give Kelly credit for grace under pressure in the form of a 30-foot birdie putt to extend the

46th Illinois Junior

Farnam edges Slattery

Triumph at Makray comes through steady back nine By Tim Cronin Reporting from Barrington

–––––

Tim Cronin / Illinois Golfer

Keen eye Ethan Farnam of Crystal Lake watches his tee shot on the penultimate hole of the Illinois Junior at Makray Memorial Golf Course.

Golf is a game one can play forever, but for a junior, the time to get certain things accomplished is limited. Every day that goes by shortens a junior’s career. The anticipation for and the pressure during the big events is thus heightened, especially if the clock is running out. That was the case for Kyle Slattery of Rockford at the 46th Illinois Junior at Makray Memorial Golf Course on June 25. Once upon a time, his father, Ed, the head pro at Mauh-Nah-Tee-See Country Club, had won the title. Now, after two rounds put him at 1-over-par 143 entering the final round, equal with Jordan Hahn and three strokes behind leader Ethan Farnam, Slattery had his best and last chance. And of that trio, Slattery played the best on a


Page 11 • July 2015 • Illinois Golfer www.illinoisgolfer.net ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– soggy day. He posted a second straight 2-under 69 – and it wasn’t enough. Farnam’s even par 71 for an aggregate of 2-under 211, highlighted by steady play down the stretch, carried the day over Slattery by a stroke. Farnam, 16, had finished ninth last year, a summer in which he also qualified for the U.S. Junior. But winning is a tonic, and he’d like to make the U.S. Junior again, plus add the U.S. Amateur to his resume. The final round came down to finish thanks to early fireworks from Slattery. “I knew I had to make a lot of birdies, and I made three on the front,” Slattery said, the frontnine highlight a 7-iron approach to five feet on the ninth. “I was feeling good. I had momentum my way,” Slattery said. Then came the back nine. “I was just trying to keep it even,” Farnam said. “I wasn’t playing that well today. I just tried to fight through it.” Slattery’s missed short putt on the 10th coupled with Farnam’s 10-foot birdie putt on the 11th swung the momentum back to the pride of Crystal Lake. “I missed a few short ones and he made a few,” Slattery said. “I knew I had to make a few more birdies. We parred all the holes through 17. I knew I had to either birdie or eagle. I made a chip close and made birdie, but he made a great par, so hats off to him.” A greater par than Farnam had planned on the par 5. He admitted to chunking his wedge shot. It stopped on the front of the green with the cup almost all the way back. Farnam called it a “100-foot putt,” and if it was, he hit it 96 feet, and was able to clear up the par to grab the Slovitt Cup.

Just short Kyle Slattery’s final round 69 was the day’s best, but needed to be one lower for a playoff.

Hahn, from Spring Grove, and Northbrook’s Daniel Cole had scored even-par 71 on the opening day to lead the way over Winnetka’s Matthew Murlick by two strokes. Farnam and Slattery were among those at 74. But Farnam’s 5-under 66 in the second was the round of the tournament, and moved him to the lead entering the final lap. Slattery’s closing 69 was matched by Orion Yamat of Niles, who used it to climb to solo third at 4-over 217. Hahn ended up fourth after a 76, finishing eight strokes behind Farnam. Winnetka’s Matthew Murlick was fifth at 7-over 220.

27th Illinois Golfer Junior Challenge

Hollatz, Snyder, Barker, Mikula triumph in test at Glenwoodie By Tim Cronin Reporting from Glenwood

–––––

The whole idea in 1989, what is now called the Illinois Golfer Challenge Junior Golf Championship was started, was to give young golfers a chance to play a good course for a real championship at a reasonable price. No matter if it was Pulitzer or The Daily Southtown or SouthtownStar, or now Illinois Golfer fronting the operation, the goal has always been met. And the competition has almost always exceeded expectations. Such was the case again on July 1, when the 27th edition was conducted at Glenwoodie Golf Club in Glenwood, as always the site of the championship. From a total field of 50 players, there were four deserving winners: • Gehrig Hollatz, whose 1-under-par 71 carried him to a threestroke victory over Michael Barber in the Boys 16-to-18 Division; • Christian Snyder, who posted a 4-over 76 early in the Boys 13-to-15 Division and saw nobody match or exceed it; • Kelly Barker, who survived a sudden-death playoff in the most improbable of fashions to capture the Girls 16-to-18 Division; • and Jane Mikula, who won the three-strong Girls 13-to-15 Division with a 35-over 107. Their stories begin on the next page. Scores are on Page 16. Tim Cronin / Illinois Golfer

Right down the middle Glenwoodie’s short par-4 17th offered a respite after the rigors of the 16th, one of Chicagoland’s best holes.

Hollatz goes long and low to win the Joe

From the moment the pairings were issued, it was clear the title in the Boys 16-to-18 Division of the 27th Illinois Golfer Challenge Junior Golf Championship could come down to two men: Beecher’s Michael Barber and Lockport’s Gehrig Hollatz. The Milliken-ticketed Barber scored four straight IHSA regional titles playing for the Beecher Bobcats. Butler-bound Hollatz was a threat for the Porters every time he teed it up. They didn’t disappoint on Wednesday. Barber went out in 1-under-par 35. Hollatz recovered from a three-putt bogey after a 295-yard drive on the par4 first hole with a birdie on the second and went out in 1-over 37. After each player had trouble on the treacherous par-4 11th, back-to-back birdies on the par-3 12th and par-5 13th allowed Hollatz to pull even. The break came on the par-4 17th, a runt of a hole at 284 yards from the newish white tee, down in the valley. Barber struggled to a double-bogey 6. Hollatz scored a birdie 3. Therein was the difference in Hollatz’s winning 1-under-par 71 and Barber’s runner-up 2-over 74. For his effort, Hollatz was awarded the 2015 iteration of the Joe Jemsek Trophy, named after the Hall of Famer who long leased Glenwoodie. Two fine rounds. One hole the difference. “I did not know what to hit,” Hollatz said of his quandary on the tee. “I finally hit driver and was 10 yards in front of the green.” A chip and a putt equaled a 3, while Barber doubled that. Hollatz’s round was up and down early – he

nior golf road. He picked Milliken after considering Monmouth and Carthage, and. while he’ll play for Milliken, doesn’t see a career in golf beckoning. “Business, maybe accounting,” he said. All the better to add up low scores. Ryan Dahlkamp of Crown Point was third with a 6-over 78. A double-bogey 5 on the third hole put him behind, and Hollatz and Barber gradually pulled away.

Unflappable Snyder’s 76 captures Dann trophy

Gehrig Hollatz Boys 16-to-18 Champion drilled a wedge to five feet from 115 yards on the second hole for a bird, then sailed his second on the par-4 fourth out of bounds – and then settled into a comfort zone that featured, with the exception of the 11th hole, nothing but pars and birdies. “It was the first time I’d seen the course,” Hollatz said. “If I had a practice round, I’d have put myself in better spots.” He’ll make sure to have a practice round at Illinois State’s Weibring course in advance of U.S. Amateur qualifying. He’d dearly like to make the field of 312 that will tee it up at Olympia Fields Country Club in August. For Barber, this is just about the end of his ju-

The goal of any tournament director is to pair players of comparable ability, so all can enjoy the round even if they’re not in contention. Christian Snyder wasn’t quite in that position in the Boys 13-to-15 Division of the Illinois Golfer Challenge Junior Golf Championship at Glenwoodie Golf Club in Glenwood. A fine player, happenstance paired him with a duo that failed to break 100. No problem. Snyder, a 15-year-old from New Lenox, cruised around Glenwoodie in 4-over-par 76 and scored a two-stroke victory over Oak Forest’s Jack Dykema to claim the Marshall Dann Trophy. “I just got to know the kids,” Snyder said. “That’s what you’re supposed to do in golf, have a good time.” Snyder splashed three birdies on his card, including a brace on the 12th and 13th. It was on the 12th, the picturesque par-3 of 121 yards, that he nearly had a lifetime memory. “Almost aced it,” Snyder said. “It was an 8iron, the wind was left to right, the ball faded that way, and I heard it hit the pin.”


Page 14 • July 2015 • Illinois Golfer www.illinoisgolfer.net ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– three 6s on his back-nine card, including a doublebogey on Glenwoodie’s signature 16th, dropped him into second place. But for a rookie – and not just in the Challenge – it was a fine showing. “I’ve played a lot the last few days, but I’ve never played in a tournament,” Dykema said. “I guess it was really fun today.” The 40-foot birdie putt on the first hole was fun. So was the 12-footer on the ninth for a 3, set up by an approach from 70 yards. And, going into his freshman year at Wheaton Academy, where his dad will be an assistant coach, the expectation is of even more fun. Kevin Healy of Evergreen Park took third, with a 12-over 84.

Christian Snyder Boys 13-to-15 Champion The two-footer for a deuce was followed by a birdie on the par-5 13th. Dykema, two groups behind, played those two holes in par-bogey, and the final five holes in 4-over to Snyder’s 2-over. Snyder, going into his junior year at St. Rita, credits Mustangs coach Pete Godfrey for keeping his swing in the right place. “When he sees something, he tells me right away,” Snyder said. There was no reason for Godfrey to say anything but “Good job” on Wednesday. Dykema’s 78 was solid from the start. He opened and closed the front nine with birdies and turned in 1-over 37, a stroke better than Snyder, but

Barker repeats in three-hole playoff “I can’t believe it! We tied!” Kelly Barker said when looking at her and Elizabeth Stalla’s scorecards at Glenwoodie Golf Course in Glenwood. “Now what?” A sudden-death playoff for the championship of the Girls 16-to-18 Division, of course. Barker and Stalla posted 19-over-par 91s that took varying paths to the final number. They then embarked in an odyssey that was as dramatic and filled with more surprises and swings in momentum as any of the previous 15 playoffs in Challenge history since the championship’s inception in 1989. How’s this for a three-hole adventure over a pair of par 4s and a par 3: Barker, 5-6-8; Stalla, 56-9. This was scrappy rather than sloppy golf. When

Kelly Barker Girls 16-to-18 Champion Barker tapped in on the 145-yard third hole for a quintuple-bogey 8 after dunking a pair of balls in the water of the par-3, she could claim the first repeat victory in the division awarding the Carol McCue Trophy since Angela Dehning won four in succession from 2003 to 2006. It was a wild way to all but conclude her junior career. The 18-year-old Palos Heights resident has graduated from Marist and will attend Benedictine University in Lisle in the fall. “I’m been trying to play as much as I can, but this is my first tournament of the summer,” Barker said after the 21-hole test. Her 6 on the par-5 18th hole forced extra holes

when Stalla, going into her junior year at Evergreen Park, posted a double-bogey 7. Bogeys on the first playoff hole, Stalla two-putting from 15 feet and Barker matching her from 36 feet, moved the duo to the second, where a pond fronting the green makes approaches daunting. Barker’s second from a perfect lie in the fairway landed in the grungy hazard and trickled back into the pond. Stalla hammered her approach from the left rough well over the back of the green. Since she didn’t clear the hazard, Barker had to hit her fourth across the pond, landing 25 feet past the cup. Stalla had a difficult third, a pitch to a green running away and with the pond behind it. And when she hit it, her heart was in her mouth. “It was a very tough shot; I couldn’t really see the green or anything,” Stalla said. “I was just praying that it didn’t go in the water. I’m just glad it stayed somewhere within play.” It stopped on the far fringe. From there, Stalla putted to within 18 inches, and after Barker twoputted for a double-bogey 6, looked to be able to wrap up the title with a tap-in for a 5. In a playoff, there are no easy tap-ins. Stalla’s putt horseshoed out. She, too, would make a 6. “It was not my best putt,” she deadpanned later. “I thought I had it. It was just my nerves getting to me. At least I knocked it in for the tie.” What followed was surreal. Both players splashed their tee shots into the pond on the forcedcarry hole, and by a large margin. From the drop zone, Stalla airmailed an iron over the green and into the creek well behind it near the fourth tee. “My rangefinder kind of shot the tree behind instead of the actual pin,” Stalla said. “It read 115 instead of 67.” Advantage Barker? Only until she chunked her third into the pond again.

Mikula hangs in to win Van Wie in Girls 13-15

Jane Mikula Girls 13-to-15 Champion “It might of been a combination of us being utterly exhausted, but we both wanted to keep pushing to see how far we could actually take it,” Barker said. What happened was Barker finally hitting dry land while Stalla was well short, and Barker eventually two-putting for a quintuple-bogey 8 from 20 feet. Stalla missed her tying putt and settled for a 9. “I was putting really, really well today,” Barker said. “I was happy with that.” And the victory. Stalla at least gets to try again next year. Danielle Collina of Palos Heights was third, firing a 107.

Jane Mikula will be an incoming freshman at Marist in the fall. She’ll be trying out for the RedHawks girls golf team with a trophy on her shelf. The 14-year-old Chicagoan grabbed the final prize of the Illinois Golfer Challenge Junior Golf Championship, specifically the Virginia Van Wie Trophy, by scoring 35-over 107 to win the Girls 13-to-15 Division at Glenwoodie Golf Course in Glenwood. It wasn’t the lowest score for a Challenge winner, but it got the job done. To Mikula, the key was the start. Literally, the first swing in competition. “The first drive,” she said. “Starting off well helps.” With only two other competitors, she was able to keep tabs on Gianna Miritello and MacKenzie Zions, who also happen to be Marist-affiliated. Mikula beat Miritello by five strokes and Zions by seven. “Some of it was difficult,” Mikula said. “The back nine, I just had to stick with it.” She was able to negotiate Glenwoodie’s fabled finish after a quintuple-bogey 9 on the par-5 13th, three strokes ahead of Zions and four ahead of Miritello. Voila! A big trophy to signify her first win of the year following a camp for present and prospective Marist teammates and her regular Tuesday appearance in the Meadows of Blue Island Junior League. Scoring is on Page 16.

27th Illinois Golfer Challenge Junior Golf Championship

Hey! Yu captures Western Junior From IG News Services –––––

They’re not asking who Yu is anymore. Not after his comeback victory in suddendeath to win the 98th Western Junior at Riverside Golf Club. Yu is Chun An Yu, a 16-year-old who moved from the Republic of China, a.k.a. Taiwan, to Orlando in January to better serve his golf game. Beating Yechun “Carl” Yuan in sudden death on the first playoff hole was his breakthrough. Yu needed only a par to claim the title when Yuan recorded his fifth straight bogey, a runs that took the future Washington Husky from the lead into the playoff and finally to runner-up status. “I feel so good,” Yu said. “Winning this tournament was my dream from the moment I found out about it. This is a dream come true.” The playoff was the first for America’s oldest national junior golf championship since the Western Golf Association switched the format from match play to stroke play in 1999. Yuan, from Lake Mary, Fla., had a four-stroke lead through 14. He bogeyed the next four holes to finish at even par 70–280, forcing the playoff with Yu. His 2-under 68 for 280 was an hour old. “I think I lost concentration a little bit towards the end,” Yuan said. “When the body gets tired, it’s hard to pull the trigger and get the right shot. In golf, you can’t go back. This is a learning experience for me.” Western Springs’ Daniel Hudson tied for third at 2-over 282, with a closing 3-under 67.


Illinois Golfer Cover Story

Come to the Picnic Thanks to some dedicated individuals and the sponsorship of Deere & Co., the John Deere Classic has gone from a struggling tournament within minutes of cancellation to the Green Bay Packers of the PGA Tour. Like a family picnic, it has made the Quad Cities the place to be for one weekend in July each year.

The one started and then saved by golf nuts like Bob Fry from the Quad Cities, by a commissioner who had a soft spot in his heart for it, by a famous second banana, by a fast-food chain, and finally by the realization of golf fans from 100 miles around – and more than a few from Chicago – that the little tournament was worth turning out for. Oh, and a sponsorship by the largest company in the area didn’t hurt either. This is the John Deere Classic, where Grand Slam hopeful Jordan Spieth will be in attendance this month, but once upon a time, it was the Quad Cities Open, and most players with a tenth of his resume wouldn’t have given it the time of day. Play where the week before the British Open? Or the same week? Or the week after? Are you crazy? Or the week after, for that matter. Before Deere and Co. arrived with a big check and a deal with the PGA Tour to become the course equipment company for the Tournament Players Club chain of courses the Tour operates, the tournament under its various names had more bad dates than a high school sophomore. But it was harder to kill off than Rasputin. Once, the tournament committee called a news conference at WQAD-TV in March of 1985 to announce the tournament’s cancellation. That became less than must-see TV when, a half-hour before, the local chamber of commerce called and suggested state tourism money could be used to help finance that year’s purse. That helped keep things going. So did PGA Tour commissioner Deane Beman, who had given up a playing career to run the Tour. He had won the first two QCOs, the first when it was on the

fledgling second tour and offered a puny $25,000 purse, of which Beman collected $5,000. The second year, it was on the big circuit, and Beman won again, pocketing $20,000. In 1972, that was decent money. Better yet, it was a confidence booster for a player who had game, but had never reached the heights as a pro as he did as an amateur. Beman wanted to see the QCO succeed not just because he won, but because it was the only tournament willing to go head-to-head with the British Open. Where else could his Stateside play-

ers play? The Tour loaned the tournament the last $16,000 for the 1985 purse. “We feel a greater responsibility than other sports to stick with an event you have and make it work,” Beman said a few years ago. A chain of Hardee’s fast-food restaurants had helped with the purse in the early years. They dropped out, but somehow, Ed McMahon, Johnny Carson’s announcer and foil, was convinced by the Jaycees to put his name on the tournament. In turn, he brought Hollywood notables such as Jerry Lewis to Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley to

But one other thing happened, beyond McMahon coming and going, Miller Brewing coming and going, and then Hardee’s, the front office, arriving for a nine-year sponsorship. Thanks to a series of exciting finishes and the realization that if it disappeared, it would never come back, the tournament caught on with the golf lovers of Davenport, Bettendorf, Moline, Rock Island, and outposts from Burlington, Iowa to Rockford. It became the golf equivalent of a county fair or family picnic. There might not have been a Tilt-A-Whirl or a greased pig catching contest, but there was a sense of community among the birdies and bogeys. It may be the only tournament in golf where fans arrive wearing overalls and nobody bats an eye. Thus, when Hardee’s left after the 1994 tournament, it hung on, even though the purse was now a cool million and going up. And up, and up. But on April 2, 1997, everything changed. Deere & Co. signed on as the title sponsor, the backing beginning in 1998 and with the new name – the John Deere Classic – affixed beginning in 1999, the year everyone expected to be at TPC Deere Run. Instead, because of grow-in trouble, one more year was spent at Oak-

wood. Deere Run, along the Rock River on some Deere-held property in Silvis, debuted in 2000, and the new era really began. It is that era, with the Birdies of Charity operation helping more than 470 local charities to the tune of $62 million, and more than $6 million each of the last three years, with network television – first TBS, then ABC, and in recent years CBS – and with a succession of stellar tournaments, that has made the John Deere Classic the Green Bay Packers of the PGA Tour. This is the big deal in the little cities along the Mississippi. Call Brian Harman, who won last year, impressed with the passion of the community. “It’s an honor to be a champion of a tournament like that, to feel the support,” Harman said on a pre-tournament visit to Deere Run. “I can’t even imagine not wanting to come back to this tournament.” Spieth feels the same way, which surprised some who felt he should hie himself over to St. Andrews directly from Chambers Bay to prepare for the third leg of the Grand Slam. Perhaps he would have if not for the charter to and from the British Open that tournament director Clair Peterson arranged beginning in 2008. That may be the best money any tournament director has even spent. This year, the road to the Grand Slam runs through Deere Run.

The buzz on bees and golf

oneybees have been in the news the past couple of years and rightfully because honeybees play an important role as pollinators in our food supply chain. It is common for honeybee colonies to decline some years, but over the past several years, beekeepers have recorded greater losses than normal. The general term used to describe this loss is colony collapse disorder (CCD). Though science has not indicated one specific cause of CCD, the use of pesticides, particularly one class, is commonly mentioned as a possible contributing factor. Researchers are trying to find answers and protect this important insect. The class that is under scrutiny is the neonicotinoids, a group of newer insecticides that are widely used in agriculture as a seed coating. The green industry, including golf, has used this class of chemistry for several years to treat turf-feeding insects and as a protectant against wood boring insects, including the emerald ash borer. The EPA is currently re-evaluating the safety of these products to provide best practice guidelines to limit any potentially negative side affects. Some local superintendents are taking a more active stance. Several superintendents have been keeping bees to show the diverse habitats found on golf courses can support and help solve the decline in honeybee populations by providing them a safe environment and home. Too often golf courses are seen as sterile environments void of any wildlife, especially from the perspective on the non-golfing

in the natural habitat the course provides. Now beekeeping has become a passion for Witte. “I’m able to connect people who are enthusiastic with beekeeping and show them that golf courses can be safe havens for bees,” he said. Once considered “no fly zones,” Witte has proven to fellow apiarists that golf courses can provide much needed habitat for bees. Witte involves the local community drawing on volunteers each honey harvest season. He continues to help elevate golf by sharing his experience and knowledge by educating fellow golf course superintendents who have an interest in beekeeping. The buzz has caught on with other area golf courses, including Skokie Country Club, where superintendent Don Cross recently tweeted they’ve captured four swarms this month alone and brings their hive count on the property up to nine. The courses and clubs are also sharing their honey to keep their bees and fund other projects. The proshop at Cantigy sells out of Witte’s honey each year. Beeswax candles can be purchased in the park’s gift shop and LipBeeStick, a lip balm made from the harvested wax and other natural ingredients is tough for Witte and his team to keep in stock. As the EPA and other agencies look more closely into the use of specific pesticides and their impact on the bee population, most still attribute the decline of the honeybee to loss of habitat. Thankfully, golf courses are proving to be a good home for this beneficial insect. ––––––– Please send golf/turf maintenance questions to luke@magcs.org Former golf course superintendent Luke Cella is the Executive Director of the Midwest Association of Golf Course Superintendents.

Last Encompass dance? Champions Tour weekend needs sponsor, course and open date By Tim Cronin –––––

Say this for the Encompass Championship if this month’s edition, as expected, proves to be the last of the three: It was good while it lasted. The Champions Tour tournament brought world-class players to a world-class course, that being North Shore Country Club in Glenview, beginning two years ago. Craig Stadler ended a long winless streak to collect the 2013 title, and Tom Lehman came through to win last year. He defends in the 54-hole test beginning Fri., July 10. Two major champions succeeding on a course

that has hosted majors – notably the 1933 U.S. Open and the 1983 U.S. Amateur – in the past. The decision by Encompass to not renew its sponsorship deal, the need for a new site with the three-year pact with North Shore finishing, and the initiation of a new 50-and-up tournament in Madison, Wis., beginning next year, sponsored by American Family Insurance on the original Encompass dates – the week after the U.S. Open – leads to the inescapable conclusion that this is the last dance for the senior set at North Shore. That means if you want to see Lehman or Stadler or Fred Couples, who said July 4 that his back is well enough to give it a go, or anyone else in

Classic finish The 18th hole at North Shore will play as the ninth during the Encompass so more fans can watch.


Page 22 • July 2015 • Illinois Golfer www.illinoisgolfer.net ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– the senior golf set, it would be worth hustling over to North Shore for the Encompass. For most in the Chicago area, it’s a lot closer than Madison. Couples finished second to Stadler in 2013, but his often wonky back kept him home last year. “We are certainly glad Fred has decided to compete in the tournament this year and very happy for the fans who will be attending the Encompass Championship,” tournament director Mike Galeski said. “He enhances the atmosphere of any tournament he plays and adds another element to what already is an exciting and competitive field.” For his part, Lehman would love to see the Encompass stay at North Shore with a new sponsor. “It’s a special golf course,” Lehman said. “Tournaments on great golf courses always seem to have that little something extra, that X factor that other places may not have. So when you win on a great course, a tournament on a venue which has so much tradition, it means a lot. “There’s a lot of history (in Chicago). Everybody who plays on the Champions Tour has played since they were probably 18 in some type of Western – Junior, Amateur or Open – so Chicago’s been part of the calendar, part of the rotation of tournaments since I was 18. So coming back to Chicago, where you’ve been coming for so long, it becomes part of what you look forward to. “You play in places that feel like home, and I think everyone has that feeling about the city.” There are pro-ams on Wednesday and Thursday, while Friday and Saturday features celebrities playing in each pro group. Sunday is pros only, chasing the first place prize of $285,000 from the $1.9 million purse. The winner may well end up a champion with no place to defend his championship in 2016.

The state championship will be played at two sites, Royal Melbourne in Long Grove and Hawthorn Woods Country Club in the town next door. This allows for an expanded field of 258 compared to the standard 156, and that’s expected to create a larger purse, based on more players attempting to qualify. This year, 437 attempted, compared to 349 last year, an increase of more than 20 percent, not including exempt players. The final round will be at Royal Melbourne after a cut to the low 70 and ties. Brad Hopfinger is on the Web-com Tour and not expected to defend his title. Williams moves to IPGA from IJGA Carrie Williams left the Illinois PGA’s tournament director post eight years ago to run the Illinois Junior Golf Association as executive director. She’ll return to the IPGA on Aug. 25, exchanging one top posting for another. Williams takes over for Michael Miller, who

left the IPGA for a similar post with the Southwest PGA in Scottsdale, Ariz., in May. “(T)he relationships and experiences that have come out of working with those that so avidly support the IJGA, its programs and its mission have been a gift,” Williams said in a July 2 letter announcing the move. Jordan Abdel-Haq has been named interim executive director of the IJGA. Khamborn captures Women’s Western Am It’s fair to say that Chakansim “Fai” Khamborn is aces with the Women’s Western Golf Association. With her aunt caddieing, Kahmborn scored a hole-in-one during the second round of stroke play qualifying. Then the 15-year-old went on to win the 115th Women’s Western Amateur, played at Nashville Golf and Athletic Club in Brentwood, Tenn. She beat Florida State senior Lydia Gumm, 1 up, in the 36-hole final. Kahmborn won the Women’s Western Junior at age 12 three years ago, but didn’t have to face the level of competition in that affair that she did in the Am. In order, she knocked off a collection of collegians: Alabama’s Cammie Gray, Arkansas’ Shawn Rennegarbe, Wake Forest’s Allison Emrey, Southern California’s Ashley Holder and Louisville-bound Lauren Hartledge. That semifinal battle went 19 holes before Kahmborn triumphed. Scoring on page 26. Kang takes storm-shortened Decatur-Forsyth A win is a win is a win, even when tour officials deem it unofficial. Tell that to Jimin Kang, whose opening round of 8-under-par 64 at Hickory Point Golf Course in Forsyth turned out to be all the golf she needed to capture the Decatur-Forsyth Classic when a con-

The $16,500 first prize she won will spend nonetheless. “I wish we could have played 36 holes more, but unfortunately we couldn’t,” Kang said after the tournament was called. “We were all looking forward to playing more golf.” Kang especially. A twotime winner on the LPGA circuit, she’s still working her way back in from a debilitating allergy problem that imperiled her immune system. At one point, golf wasn’t the issue. Breathing was. Kang won a Symetra tournament in North Carolina in May and is second on the money list, on track to regain her LPGA card at season’s end. Second went to MaudeAimee Leblanc, who scored 5-under 67. Homer Glen won’t reopen Woodbine The continuing saga of Woodbine Golf Course in Homer Glen has taken another turn. Village officials said in late May they were planning to reopen the course,

with the Ludwig family, from whom the village bought the course in 2013, running the operation through 2016. That’s no longer the plan. Homer Glen mayor George Yukich and Jim Ludwig were unable to reach an agreement, and the village has once again decided to keep the course mown, but closed, The Daily Southtown reported June 25. Ludwig was concerned with a provision the course would be closed when village engineers needed to access the land to work on a flooding problem from stormwater runoff to an adjacent neighborhood, the paper reported. “The golf course is a dead issue right now,” Yukich said. Why Yukich hasn’t considered bringing in another golf course management company is the $62,000 question. That’s the estimated annual cost to keep the course while plans are developed to turn it into a park and, eventually, remodel the clubhouse into a village hall. People Mike Schoaf has left the Illinois PGA’s media post to join Michael Miller at the Southwest PGA.

Illinois Women’s Open beckons By Tim Cronin –––––

Phil Kosin was a dreamer. He was also a doer. The combination is why there’s an Illinois Women’s Open today. Kosin was, to put it mildly, incensed that three women were invited to play in the Illinois Open at Royal Fox Country Club in 1992. He thought, and correctly, that Royal Fox owner Vince Solano was using the women, Renee Heiken, Nicole Jeray and Kelly Johnston, a trio of collegiate notables, for publicity. The Illinois PGA, having given Solano a handful of exemptions, welcomed the women into the field. None made the cut, though Heiken did in a return visit two years later. Kosin and others talked about the potential of an Illinois Women’s Open. Only he did something about it, starting the tournament in 1995. Diane Daugherty, the coach of Southern Illinois’ women’s team, won the inaugural at Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park, and a tradition was born. Eventually the tournament took up residence at Mistwood Golf Club in Romeoville, which was fortuitous, for after Kosin’s death in 2009, Mistwood owner Jim McWethy decided to continue it, adding Kosin’s name to the title. Thus, the 21st Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open will tee off a three-day run on July 27. Fittingly, Jeray has won it twice. And Sarah Johnston, the 2004 winner, was the younger sister of Kelly Johnston.

The presence of 2014 winner Emily Collins in this year’s affair is as yet undetermined. Collins is on the Symetra Tour, and, like Illinois Open 2014 winner Brad Hopfinger, who is taking to make a living on the Web-com Tour, she may find it impossible to get away from a tour that could lead her to the big circuit. Regardless, a field of about 100 is expected to test Mistwood, which has earned raves since the reimagination by architect Ray Hearn. Collins romped last year, scoring 4-under-par 212 to win by nine strokes and collect the $5,000 first prize. It was her first win as a pro, coming shortly after she graduated from Oklahoma. “I had won a couple other little things (as an amateur),” Collins said. “This is definitely exciting.” Entries are being accepted through July 13. For more information, call Andy Mickelson at Mistwood, (815) 254-3333.
