Inside the Wyndham Championship with Mark Brazil

he 80th annual Wyndham Championship features many storylines, but none is more at the forefront than the new Wyndham Rewards Top 10, which will pay $10 million to the top-10 finishers in the FedExCup point standings following the Wyndham Championship, the last event of the PGA TOUR regular season. The No. 1 golfer will earn a $2 million bonus with $1.5 going to second place all the way down to $500,000 to the No. 10 player after the Wyndham Championship. Three golfers among the early player commitments might have decided to play the Wyndham because of the new program: Paul Casey: Ranked No. 8 in points and 15th in the world when he joined the field, Casey is an international star who finished third in the Wyndham the last time he played in 2015. A four-time Ryder Cup participant, he won the Valspar Championship earlier this season. Casey will look to improve his Wyndham Rewards Top 10 standing with a Wyndham win and significantly increase his seasonend bonus. Chez Reavie: Ranked 12th in points and 26th in the world when he joined the field, Reavie won the Travelers Championship earlier this summer. He’ll make his eighth Wyndham appearance and is poised to move into the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. Charles Howell III: Another player poised to move into the lucrative top 10, Howell won the RSM classic earlier this season. When he joined the field, he was 13th in points and 54th in the world.

Additional Commitments:

Brandt Snedeker: The defending and twotime Wyndham champion will be back to look for his third Sam Snead Cup. His win a year ago will always be remembered for the 59 he shot in the first round. The tournament’s leading career money winner is just the 10th golfer with multiple Wyndham wins.

Webb Simpson: The 2011 Wyndham champion was 26th in FedExCup points and 19th in the world when he joined the field. The 2012 U.S. Open champion will make his 11th consecutive Wyndham Championship start. He finished tied for second last year. Patrick Reed: The 2018 Masters champion and 2013 Wyndham winner was 64th in points and 25th in the world when he joined the field. He won the Wyndham with a brilliant shot from the trees to the right of the 10th hole in an epic playoff with Jordan Spieth. Davis Love III: Three-time Wyndham Championship winner and World Golf Hall of Famer who now plays PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions events. With his wins in Greensboro in 1992, 2006 and 2015, he has Wyndham wins in three different decades. The University of North Carolina alumnus will make his 24th Wyndham Championship start. Ernie Els: The four-time Major winner and World Golf Hall of Famer is making his ninth Wyndham Championship and his sixth straight. Martin Kaymer: Won two Majors: the 2010 PGA Championship and the 2014 U.S. Open at

Pinehurst Resort staging more history at 119th U.S. Amateur By DAVID DROSCHAK

ew places embrace history like Pinehurst Resort. And the historic golf venue is preparing to add yet another piece of lore to its annals. Just five years after making history by hosting back-to-back U.S. Opens for the men and women on Pinehurst No. 2, the iconic resort and the USGA are once again teaming up in mid August offer up a first. The final 36-hole match of the U.S. Amateur will be staged over two courses – Pinehurst No. 4 in the morning and then Pinehurst No. 2 in the afternoon – for the first time in the 119-year history of the national championship for the best amateurs in the world. “It’s fun to do ‘firsts,’’’ said Pinehurst Resort president Tom Pashley. “Our relationship with the USGA is so long term and we know them so well there is typically not one moment where the phone call is made to say we’re thinking of doing this or that. We have ongoing dialogue on a monthly basis on their goals and our goals and how we can work together to achieve them, and the opportunity to showcase either the best players in the world or some of the best golf-course architecture in the world. “That word showcase can be overused, but I think it really applied in 2014 with showcasing the best women’s players and how they measured up against the best male players on the same course,” Pashley added. “And now this U.S. Amateur gives us an opportunity to showcase two very different styles of golf course architecture that are right here side-by-side.”

The newly re-designed No. 4 course will co-host the final 36-hole match for the U.S. Amateur. Pinehurst No. 2, with its famed crowned greens, is a Donald Ross classic that will play at a whopping 7,555 yards and a par70, while the newly re-designed No. 4 by Gil Hanse will also co-host the stroke play qualifying at a 7,227-yard, par-72 layout. The final 36-hole match of this grueling test of attrition is set for Aug. 18. The last U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst was in 2008, with Danny Lee beating Florida State’s Drew Kittleson. Those amateurs advancing to match play in that championship 11 years ago produced quite a group of professional players -- Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Billy Horschel and Chesson Hadley, among others – that have gone on to win 30 PGA Tour events.

Pinehurst No. 2’s restoration by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw is approaching a decade, and should play quite differently than when Lee and Kittleson were firing at pins in 2008. “It’s a living, breathing golf course and it really does change by the season,” Pashley said. “The summer brings little pine weeds, almost like little tumbleweeds, that are green with yellow flowers right now. I love them. In the fall they turn brown. They are not too much of a nuisance and you can get your club through them, but they can get inside your head. What has changed and what maybe makes it harder is the greens are now bermudagrass, so the ball doesn’t stop the way it used to. Now you have to plan on that bounce and a roll so I just can’t wait to see how different it will feel and how firm it will play vs. those soft bent grass greens.” One of the favorites heading into the U.S. Amateur will be recent Stanford graduate Brandon Wu, who had quite a few months of golf. After leading the Cardinal to the NCAA national title, Wu pulled off a rare feat of qualifying for the U.S. Open and British Open as an amateur. “I’m not going to lie, Pinehurst No. 2 is pretty tough,” Wu said. “You have to keep the ball in the fairway, and that’s a common theme with a lot of these U.S. Amateurs, but especially at No. 2. You may get lucky every once in a while in the bushes, but if you don’t keep it in the fairway it’s going to be a short week. And then you need to focus on hitting the greens. “During my practice round getting used to the tee shots and seeing the lines of the golf course are key,” Wu added. “I try to take mental pictures of what each tee shot looks like and pick out a target. You need to get a confidence level going as you make your way around the No. 2 course.”

In recent years, the U.S. Amateur has turned into a so-called “young men’ game.” Those results are not lost on 41-year-old Scott Harvey, a local Triad favorite who will be playing in his final exemption year. “I like to say there is nothing that anybody can do with a golf ball that I can’t do. I don’t feel that I lack any of that, but energy-wise is what is a challenge,” Harvey said. “I get worn out and at this age I’m just not going to get up in the morning and go to the gym and work out. It is what it is.” Still, Harvey is not counting himself out, and would like nothing better than to capture the U.S. Amateur Championship in front of his wife, kids and mother, who will all make the short drive to Pinehurst to cheer on their golfing hero. “I have played No. 2 maybe 15 times, and not had much success at all,” Harvey said. “Oh God yeah, it’s hard. You are standing in the fairway and the greens look so tiny, looks like there is no place to hit the ball. It is just so demanding. It’s a very difficult course but very worthy of any kind of championship you can throw at it.” Wu and Harvey know each other from competing at the 2017 Porter Cup. “For a guy like Scott Harvey, with so much match play experience and being around for so long, I think he has just as good of a shot as anyone,” Wu said. “And Scott has an impressive track record in match play, so there is that, too. Sure, the young guys are typically hitting it a little bit farther and that’s how the game is sort of growing, but the way I look at it is the farther you hit it the farther off line you can hit it, too. But yes, it can make a difference, hitting three clubs down from some players, especially on No. 2.” TRIAD GOLF TODAY • AUGUST 2019

Pinehurst Resort’s founder, Richard Tufts, “must be the backbone of all sport, golf or otherwise.” Pinehurst’s rich tournament history began in 1901 with the North & South Amateur. Legends like Walter Travis, Francis Ouimet, Jack Nicklaus, Curtis Strange and Davis Love III are among the former champions. “With Pinehurst, and its history of amateur golf, beginning with the North & South championship, amateur golf has always been part of our DNA,” said Pinehurst Resort president Tom Pashley. “As players walk down the first fairway of Pinehurst No. 2, they walk in the footsteps of almost every great player who has ever played the game.″ Around the Home of American Golf, summer used to be considered the slow season. But not anymore — and especially not in 2019. In late June, rising Baylor University senior Cooper Dossey defeated Georgia Tech’s Noah

Norton 5 & 4 to capture the 119th North & South Amateur. “It’s number one,” said Dossey, when asked about where the North & South title ranks among his career accomplishments. The Women’s North & South Amateur was contested in mid-July. At the 41st Boys’ Junior North & South Championship in early July, South Africa’s Tyran Snyders posted a clean card in the final round on Pinehurst No. 8 en route to a 68 and a three-shot victory over the Philippines’ Jolo Timothy Magcalayo. Meanwhile, Katherine Schuster from Kill Devil Hills — already a Drive, Chip & Putt champion at Augusta National and a two-time North Carolina state high school champion — won the 41st Girls’ North & South Junior Championship. “This (win) is above everything,” Schuster said. “This is amazing. To win at Pinehurst? And to win having played Pinehurst No. 2? There are no words to describe it.”

Tournament Time from page 10 During July and August this year in the Sandhills a trio of significant golf events takes center stage with the U.S. Teens World Championship and U.S. Kids World Championship — when more than 1,500 of the best junior golfers in the world descend upon the Pinehurst area to compete for individual titles in a variety of age groups — followed by the 2019 U.S. Amateur, which will be contested August 12-18 at Pinehurst Nos. 2 & 4. Earlier in the summer, Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro welcomed some of the country’s most outstanding young golfers at the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA)’s Wyndham Invitational presented by BB&T. In late June, Winston-Salem’s Old Town Club played host to the team match-play Wyndham Cup for the second time. The 40-player field at Old Town featured the 10 best junior males and junior females from both the East and West sides of the country.

commit you can’t just stop playing. Staying in the tournament groove and preparing yourself for college golf is the main point of competing in summer tournaments. “I love playing tournaments on a national stage but I enjoy playing in local North Carolina tournaments more. It’s fun being able to go out and compete in your home state, and play with the people I’ve grown up playing with.” The Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Tour (PKBGT) is based in Greensboro and offers competitive, girls-only golf tournaments. In the midst of its 12th season, the tour has grown to operate nearly 100 events each year, with more than 900 annual participants. This summer, the PKBGT offered 17 events in North Carolina between the Memorial and Labor Day holidays featuring a variety of one-, two- and three-day events for the Carolina’s top junior female golfers to compete. Although the tour now offers events in almost every state along the eastern seaboard, the culmination event of the summer season will take place in the state, with the Tour Championship being hosted at Peggy Kirk Bell’s beloved Pine Needles and Golf Club in Southern Pines. One of the state’s most prolific junior golfers, Zach Brown of

Bermuda Run, signed a scholarship to play for High Point in the fall. Like Fountain, Brown is using a busy summer tournament schedule to fine-tune his game for the demands of college golf. In June, Brown participated in the North Carolina Amateur at Gaston Country Club, the U.S. Junior Qualifier at Salisbury Country Club and the Carolinas Junior PGA at Irish Creek — both of which he won — and the North Carolina Junior at NC State’s Lonnie Poole Golf Club, where he reached the quarterfinals. In July, Brown played in the North & South Junior, the U.S. Junior at Inverness in Toledo, Ohio, the U.S. Amateur Qualifier at Rocky Mount’s Benvenue CC and the Junior PGA Championship at Keney Park in Hartford, Conn. He said in August, he is planning to play either the Hope Valley Junior Invitational or the U.S. Amateur. “I’ve probably had the biggest and longest summer schedule of my life so far,” Brown said. “I love tournament golf and love the competition. The U.S. Junior showed me that I’m just a little short of where I need to be of being really, really competitive on the national level. “Like I said,” Brown added. “I just love the competition.” TRIAD GOLF TODAY • AUGUST 2019

Fobes adds CGA major to her career wins



he clock was ticking on the junior golf career of Mallory Fobes when she teed off at the Dogwood State Junior Girls’ Championship in July. Fobes was playing the final Carolinas Golf Association junior event of her career, having never won a CGA tournament. Trailing by five strokes heading to the final round, she was a long shot. And after bogeys on the first two holes at Salem Glen Country Club in Clemmons, her hopes of winning were just about extinguished. “I wasn’t really focused on winning,” she said. “I didn’t think I 14


could make up five strokes, let alone seven after the first two holes.” That’s when Fobes found her game. She cut the deficit to four strokes at the turn and overtook Emily Mathews for a two-stroke win. More than just a first CGA victory, it gave the Forbush High School graduate a much-needed building block for the next step of her career. She will play golf at UNC-Wilmington in the fall. “My coach at Wilmington (Cindy Ho) had said that I needed to learn how to win before I got into college, so I knew that I could do it,” Fobes said. “So this is a really good platform going into college for me.” Fobes will join a young Seahawks squad that won the Colonial Athletic

Association championship last year, but struggled against other Division I competition. She hopes to grow her game with four rising sophomores who are already familiar faces. “I know the younger girls more because I’ve played in junior golf with them before,” she said. “We’re pretty good friends, so I’m excited about that.” Fobes made her connection at UNCW in the summer before her junior year of high school while playing in an event with former Seahawks golfer Michelle Jarman. After four holes, Jarman got the attention of Ho, who was attending the tournament. “The first thing I noticed about Mallory was her length off the tee,”

Ho said. “She was 16 years old and I lasered a drive at 263 yards, which will gain the attention of any coach.” Fobes had a UNCW campus tour scheduled the next day, and she spent seven hours with the coach. “Mallory made an unofficial visit to UNCW, and we hit it off right away,” said Ho, who is entering her 18th season at Wilmington. “I knew she would be a great fit at UNCW and that her best golf was still ahead of her once she adds more shots to her game and improves processing shots and course management.” Fobes welcomes Ho’s aggressive approach to fine-tuning her game. “I’m a very chill person, and she’s got a lot of energy, so she’s going

to be able to keep me positive when I’m having bad holes,” Fobes said. “That’s going to be a good fit for me. She’s going to make practice and workouts fun. I just think she will be a really good coach." Fobes’ game has come a long way over the course of her junior career. While she used to rely on being long off the tee -- her top distance is 288 yards -- she has improved other elements of her game. “My irons have definitely gotten more accurate and my putting has gotten a lot better,” said Fobes, who ranks 18th among North Carolina junior girls. Before her win at the Dogwood State Junior Championship, Fobes had already developed a knack for winning, particularly at Pinehurst. She won the Donald Ross Junior in late December, then claimed back-toback titles in Winternational events played at Pinehurst Nos. 1, 2 and 4 in February by a combined 11 strokes. “I’m pretty comfortable there because I’ve played there the past three years,” she says. “I won a lot the first year and the second year I played in it, but the competition got tougher every year. It was really cool to see it grow in the three years I played in it.” Still, the Dogwood State title remains especially meaningful -- but not for the first CGA win, the secondround 67 or the seven-shot comeback in the final round. Instead, Fobes felt honored when she was presented the trophy, which bears the name of Ellen Shulby. The 92-year-old rules official was a Pinehurst volunteer for more than 50 years and a friend of Mallory's. “She passed away about a year and a half ago,” Fobes said. “I didn’t know her name was on the trophy, but when I got it and read it, I thought it was really, really cool. It means a lot. She was a very sweet lady.” It’s one more reason to remember a milestone win. Not that she wants to make a big deal of it. “It feels good, but I don’t really show my emotions very much,” she said. “I’m not one of those girls who is going to flaunt it. I focus on the playing well instead of the winning.”

Caswell Pines:

Worth the drive By STEVE HUFFMAN

Golfers tee off on the first hole at Caswell Pines. 18 TRIAD GOLF TODAY • AUGUST 2019


ike Cochran has been managing golf courses more years than he cares to admit and said he learned long ago that, try as he might, he wasn’t going to please all golfers. It just wasn’t going to happen. A select few are going to find something – the price of green fees, the location of the pins, the day’s humidity; you name it – to complain about. But since taking over as general manager and superintendent at Caswell Pines Golf Club, Cochran said there’s one thing he has yet to hear anyone fuss over. “I’ve never heard anyone say anything bad about the layout,” Cochran said. “It’s one thing that everyone brags about.” Caswell Pines is a public/private course located in rural Caswell County, a few miles outside downtown Yanceyville. For most Triad and Triangle residents, the course is a little remote, but, as more and more golfers are learning, it’s worth the drive. The course is reminiscent of a tract found around Pinehurst, with pine trees galore and large, two-tiered greens that make putting a challenge. The fairways are relatively tight, but fair. A North Carolina Golf Association bragged about the course “blending the best features of mountain resorts, the history of the foothills and the spaciousness of coastal courses.” Caswell Pines was designed by Raleigh resident Gene Hamm, a wellknown architect responsible for such courses as Raleigh’s North Ridge Country Club and Cary’s Lochmere Golf Club. Caswell Pines opened in 1993, built by Mark and Chip Atwater, brothers who grew up near the property and still live close by. It’s a par 72 course that measures 6,900 yards. By most accounts, the course has improved considerably since being purchased by Greensboro businessman Bob Greear in early 2016. Cochran came on board about eight months later. “The greens were pretty rough,” Cochran said. “It took us eight or 10 months to turn those around.” The traps had also been neglected and 460 tons of sand was brought in to improve the hazards. Hundreds of pines have been removed to open the course and get more light and air to the greens. Cochran said the number of golfers venturing to Caswell Pines is increasing

Continued on page 19

Caswell Pines from page 18 He said the course draws from southern Virginia, as well as Durham, Roxboro, Greensboro and other surrounding communities. “A lot of people enjoy meeting each other here,” Cochran said. “We’re still seeing new faces.” Cochran, 62, grew up in Martinsville, Va., and in his prime was a scratch golfer. He has been involved in golf management much of his adult life, working as superintendent of the course at Lynwood Golf & Country Club in Martinsville from 1999-2003, and then following that with a similar stint at Bassett Country Club in Bassett, Va., from 2005-2015. Greear called him about a job not long after purchasing Caswell Pines. Cochran jumped at the opportunity. “He’s a great man,” Cochran said. He said the course was lacking direction when he came on board. “When I got here, there was no leadership,” Cochran said. He has worked to fix that, he said, while continually improving the course. Cochran said Greear told him he wasn’t looking to make a killing off Caswell

He said the rule of thumb of most courses is that they draw 50 percent of their play from golfers living within 5 miles of the course. Greear said that because of the location of Caswell Pines, he realizes that will never be a reality there. Instead, he said his goal is to have 25 percent of the play come from local golfers and the remaining 75 percent come from individuals living within 50 miles. “I don’t know that we’ll ever have 25,000 rounds of golf played in a year, but we have the potential for 18,00020,000,” Greear said. “We’re making it, we’re going to be OK.” Billy Hodges has been a member of Caswell Pines since the course opened in 1993. He’s a Caswell County native and has lived there all his life. Hodges, 70, said he’s always enjoyed playing Caswell Pines and enjoys it even more with the improvements that have taken place in recent years. “It’s really good for a rural golf course,” he said. “I’m really proud of Caswell Pines.”

Drive Shack lands second location in Triangle



hose of us close to the golf world know our proverbial dimpled planet has been rapidly evolving, especially across North Carolina. One of the fastest growing states with some of the nation’s most attractive places to live have driven private country clubs to provide much more than a pristine 18-hole golfing experience with lush fairways and silky smooth greens. Expansive pools with circular slides, innovative short game practice areas, tennis facilities, junior golf programs, various foodie and craft beer options – all in a more relaxed and casual family atmosphere – is now the norm, not the exception. The game’s “driving ranges” have followed suit quickly. A large bucket of balls and a patch of green grass is no longer an attractive option for most. So you can imagine the anticipation for the opening of Drive Shack Raleigh in the Triangle, a multi-purpose 65,000 square foot entertainment center that features 96 climate controlled hitting bays on a three-level launch pad. Raleigh is the firm’s second location. The inaugural Drive Shack opened in Orlando a little more than a year ago. Ones are also near completion over the next few months in West Palm Beach, Fla., and Richmond, Va. “We are going to be the premier entertainment destination in the entire Triangle and beyond,” said Drive Shack Raleigh assistant general manager John Wielgat. “The word is going to spread like wildfire. It already has. We have people coming in the parking lot every day thinking we’re open and then they see the ‘We’re Hiring’ sign and are bummed. The buzz is already out there and we’re going to continue that buzz for multiple decades.” Drive Shack Raleigh is in the process of hiring about 400 employees at the facility located less than a mile from PNC Arena and Carter-Finley Stadium, with easy access off Interstate 40. Without traffic, residents of Alamance County can get to the location in about 30-35 minutes, with Guilford County golfers about an hour away. All of the hitting bays (32 on each floor) are covered with heaters over



the hitting pad and leather couch lounge area, and feature state-of-the-art TrackMan technology. Golfers will be able to practice their games outside of the elements or punch up a famous layout like The Old Course at St. Andrews or Bethpage Black and hit to various yardages and targets supplied on a TV screen at your individual hitting bay. “Our technology is THE game changer,” said Drive Shack Raleigh general manager Dan Godfrey. “(TrackMan) is so realistic, so accurate; it’s a Doppler-based radar system and is going to be the first one of its kind that is going to be able to manufacture as many as 96 balls going at the same time and tracking them to make sure they work in coordination with the games. “And the games aren’t just golf,” he added. “There are games for kids. We have a game called Monster Hunt where you are going to hit a ball towards a target and blow up a monster and save the princess. We have games for all ages and you don’t have to be a golfer to come out here.” Once opened in late summer, as many as 2,000 patrons are expected through the facility on weekdays and as

many as 3,000 on weekends. Drive Shack Raleigh plans to stay open until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The second floor features a large bar with 12 beer taps – 7 of which will be local -- and ample seating for food features such as flat breads, pig wings and poke bowls. “We’ll have a lot of nice hip and trendy food offerings,” Godfrey said. “If you can dream of it and think of it we can do it,” Wielgat said. “We can change all of the colors of the targets to blue or we can change them to all pink. That Drive Shack sign at the end of the field will be completely illuminated in bright white lights; we’ll have lighting on all the field poles as well so at nighttime it is going to be almost like a nightclub experience. We have a lot of live entertainment booked as well -- DJs on the weekends, live bands, karaoke, stand-up comedians -- once again, if you can think of it we can do it.” A “round” of golf will take players about 75 minutes. Hitting bays for up to six players will be purchased by the hour, starting at $30 per hour from 9 a.m.-noon, and peaking at $50 per hour after 5 p.m. until close.

Food and beverage service, along with complimentary golf clubs for all ages are provided at each hitting bay. “Our pay-and-play system is unique,” Wielgat said. “You can keep on extending your time if you are in the middle of a game or having the time of your life. You can continue to enjoy food and beverage and stay here as long as you want.” Of all the places in the country for a second location, why Raleigh? “Why not Raleigh?” Wielgat said. “Look at how golf centric this area is, and Raleigh is the fastest growing community in the United States and has been for almost a decade now. The stats show there are more than 100 people moving here to the Triangle every day, but we have something here for everyone, it’s not just a golf community. There are 3-4 major universities in the area and of course a lot of golf courses – but we’re entertainment driven. We’re all about fun. You don’t need to know anything about golf to come to Drive Shack Raleigh and have an absolute blast. We are all about the fun aspect, and hiring people with fun and dynamic personalities. We’re about people.”

Friends take turns making aces at Monroeton


By STEVE WILLIAMS here’s a friendly one-upmanship rivalry going on at Monroeton Golf Club this summer. Keith Jordan of Reidsville and Terry Joyce of Eden traded aces within a three-week span. Joyce got it going on June 24 on the 12th hole, Joyce answered on July 10 on hole no. 8 and a week later (July 17) it was Jordan’s turn, also on the eighth. They were witnesses to the other’s great shots. The friends are regulars at the course and walk several times a week, usually teeing it up in the late afternoon. “I played 225 rounds one year walking,” said Jordan. “We’ve been playing there 20 some years. We’re members and when we get there we usually just walk to the first tee.” Jordan, who usually shoots in the 70s, said there’s a lot of luck involved in scoring aces and he now has five, all at Monroeton.

“There are six par-3s on the course and we play it all the time so you get a lot of chances,” he noted. His first ace came on the third hole in 2010, the second on the par-4 15th in 2013 and the third on the 12th hole in 2014. Now the two this summer. The latest hole-in-one had a touch of added drama mixed in. Jordan’s tee shot with a 6-iron from 165 yards was on target. As they walked down the fairway they noticed the ball resting on the edge of the cup, but when they got closer, they saw it fall in. “It was on the right side of the cup and the wind was blowing that way,” Jordan said. Joyce’s perfect shot a couple weeks earlier also came with a 6-iron from

165 yards. It was his second hole-inone, the other coming at Long Bay in the Myrtle Beach area in 2007. Other memorable shots reported to Triad Golf Today since our July issue follow.
