Area Insider – by David Droschak
State Record Falls he Reagan women’s golf team broke a state high school record in late August with a three-player score of 101 at Pine Knolls Golf Club in Kernersville.
Senior Sasha Hayes carded a 32, while freshman Morgan Ketchum shot 33 and senior Mary Slade a 36 to break the state record. The previous mark of 102 was set by Ardrey Kell in October 2010 at Providence Country Club in Charlotte. “Our players have worked very hard in the last year to improve,” said head coach Jay Allred, who is in his 12th season at the Pfafftown school. “We have 12 girls on the team now and it looks as though our top-5 will be all-conference.” Allred has built a deep Reagan program, which will be gunning for its 10th straight conference title. “Our top-3 players rolled in with 32-33-36 making it a 101, so I was like it would be nice to break a hundred,” Allred said of the special day in Reagan golfing history. “I was sitting there waiting for the rest to finish, so I looked up the state record and it was 102. Our players seem to be playing more relaxed and I am hoping that will carry on the rest of the season.” In addition to conference dominance, the Raiders have won the last three Western Regional titles and have finished as high as second in the state championship.
f you record a hole-in-one on the 13th hole at Stonewall Golf Course a grand awaits you – along with a video to show off to your golfing buddies. The Stokes County golf course has partnered with Chicago-based Swing King to offer $1,000 to any golfer who aces the 13th hole, which measures 183 yards from the tips. The offer also holds for the course’s unique disc golf experience. The disc hole measures up to 327 feet. “The only hole-in-one that has ever happened on the disc golf course (which opened in 2016) was on that particular hole last year,” said course owner Rick Regan. “As far as ball golf, I’ve been here for 10 years and there have been numerous holein-ones on No. 13.” Swing King, which bills itself as a company “powered by digital golf technologies” installs the video system at various courses across the country to record the aces. The cameras at Stonewall are motion activated and are aimed at the tee box, disc basket and green. “A $1,000 can be spent very quickly but the video of you getting the hole in one lasts forever,” Regan said. Regan believes Stonewall is the first course in North Carolina to provide the $1,000 payout, saying there is no extra charge or fee for golfers to be entered.

Scott took Tiger to the limit
By DAVID DROSCHAK
ew people remember the losers in golf. Who finished runner-up at the 2013 U.S. Open or the 2016 Masters? Who knows, and to be blunt, who really cares? Winning is everything in golf, hoisting the trophy, soaking in the march up the 18th fairway with the tournament in hand and the crowd cheering is exhilarating. Through history, finishing second is worth noting for only a few in the game, and that distinction is usually reserved for players who “blew the lead” in a major or for a golfing risk-taker like British Open disaster Jean van de Velde. Except if your name is Steve Scott. Scott, a former three-time AllAmerican at the University of Florida, recorded one of the most memorable runner-up finishes in golf history, taking a 20-year-old Tiger Woods to the limit and then some in the 1996 U.S. Amateur final match, falling on the 38th hole as Woods captured his third straight championship. “It is something that I’ve always felt was a badge of honor that somebody with my lesser physical abilities was able to hang with a guy like that for as long as I did, and I gave him one of the best runs anybody ever has,” Scott said. “I can certainly hold my head high that I forced him to throw everything at me but the kitchen sink, and maybe including the kitchen sink. If I didn’t want to talk about it I wouldn’t be in the golf business or I wouldn’t be playing golf, I would be holed up in some cubical without any windows. “It was a cool day in golf history, and if you think of the odds of me being the guy to stop that history of three U.S. Amateurs in a row, well the odds would be overwhelmingly against me. I got a lot more traction out of finishing second than most people ever do. A lot of great things came out of it.” While Woods has gone on to win 80 PGA Tour events, the 41-year-old Scott never really hit the golfing big-time despite rising to the No. 1 amateur ranking in the world in 1999. He played six professional journeyman seasons, three of which were logged on the Canadian Tour. 6
TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2018
Then after spending almost a decade as a club professional in New Jersey and New York, Scott moved to WinstonSalem before Christmas last year to be closer to the in-laws, accepting a position as the head golf pro of The Outpost Club, which is an invitation-only, national golf society in the United States. Modeled after historic golf societies in Great Britain, it does not own a course but members can play more than 70 events each year at top 100 courses around the world. Scott is upbeat these days, and with good reason. In his first season playing in the ultra competitive Carolinas PGA section, he won the CPGA Head Professional Championship in March and the CPGA Professional Championship in August. In between those two wins, he finished tied for fourth in the South Carolina Open and sixth in the Carolinas Open as the Section Player of the Year award awaits Scott. Scott’s first CPGA win qualified him for the RBC Heritage, his first PGA Tour event in 13 years. “It is still a circus out there -- in a good way,” Scott said. “It is a different arena to play golf in and you have to get back into that rhythm. On the Wednesday right before the RBC I guess I made a mistake, but it was kind of cool. I ended up hitting balls next to Bryson DeChambeau. He was on his Bluetooth headset hitting golf balls and talking to somebody about his spin rate and launch angles and I was kind of listening to what he had to say, and maybe I won’t do that again. It was interesting because he’s the mad scientist out there and he has a lot of things going on in his head. I don’t think that analytically out there. I’ve always played by feel and instinct.” Scott made just three PGA Tour cuts in 15 career events, earning less than $17,000, prior to his most recent brief return to the Tour. At the RBC heritage he shot 80 and 73 and missed yet another cut. Continued on page 7

Scott from page 6 Scott says his professional career was stunted by poor putting and a lack of distance off the tee. “I could fly it 270, and that’s pretty good, but not Tour good or trying to be one of the best in the world,” he said. “Amateur golf tended to lend itself to shorter golf courses at the time -- it was more of a wedge and putter contest, so not being the longest player in the world didn’t hurt me at the amateur level, which is why I had more success there, and the Canadian Tour was similar, not crazy long. “I am 5-foot-10, and I think the days of dominant golfers being less than 6 feet all are over,” he added. “You have to be 6-3 or 6-4, they all seem to be so tall now because you naturally create more club head speed. All these guys are flying the ball 300 yards plus.” While Scott has not been able to tap into any more distance as he reached his 40s, he has improved his putting drastically with his own putting grip invention, something he calls the Gator Clamp. “It is a combination how Bernhard Langer used to grip the club, clamping it to the forearm, but I turn my hand in an inverted position, kind of like Chris DiMarco holds the putter but I clamp it in there with that inverted hand,” Scott said. “It looks like a gator chomping on your arm a little bit. It has really worked for me and been so consistent. “About five years ago my game was not really very good. With the combination of changing jobs and having children my game went in the tank for awhile and honestly I would shoot in the upper 70s or low 80s,” he added. “So in 2013 I changed to this putting grip and rededicated myself to golf. Now, golf has become a lot more fun. I am competitive again.” Scott has played some tremendous golf in 2018 and is also heading up a new section of The Outpost Club called the Sliver Club Golfing Society. The name pays homage to the very first competition on record back in Scotland in 1744, where competitors played for a silver club and the winner’s name was put on the club. “It will be akin to some of the other amateur tours you see out there but it will be a membership driven society, based around competition, and we want to attract members with a 7.9 handicap index and below,” he said. “People love to play competition and we’re going to be staging on some really great courses like Bay Hill, Barton Creek, Point O’ Woods. We’re trying to create a network of some really good people and really good players to play great courses all around the country.” So after growing up in Florida and spending a good portion of time as a club pro in the Northeast, Scott appears to have found a comfortable home in the Tar Heel state. “It has all been good,” he said. “I am liking this part of the world a lot.”

A big-time boon for Wyndham Championship
With the changes to the PGA Tour Schedule the Wyndham Championship will see the top players and sold-out crowds for years to come.
By BRAD KING
he seismic reverberations following the mid-September announcement of the PGA Tour’s new “Wyndham Rewards Top 10” were felt immediately. The news was first shared at a media event before the Tour teed off its FedExCup Playoff finale at Atlanta’s East Lake Golf Club. Nearing the end of his annual state-of-the-Tour address, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan dropped a bombshell. With Bobby Long, chairman of the Piedmont Triad Charitable Foundation, and Steve Holmes, chairman of Wyndham Hotels and Wyndham Destinations sitting in the front row, Monahan announced that starting in 2019, the PGA Tour would join with Wyndham Rewards to sponsor the new, $10-million Wyndham Rewards Top 10. 10 TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2018
Through the program, the top-10 regular season finishers in FedExCup points after the Wyndham Championship — also sponsored by Wyndham Rewards — will reap some major financial benefits. The leader at the conclusion of the Wyndham Championship will earn $2 million, followed by $1.5 million for the runner-up, with decreasing amounts based on position from there. The 10thplace finisher will earn $500,000. “This is a significant and exciting change for the PGA Tour, our players, our partners and most importantly our fans,” Monahan said. The impact on Greensboro’s annual PGA Tour event at Sedgefield Country Club may be monumental. “This changes everything,” Long said. Strolling out of the East Lake clubhouse following the news conference,
longtime Wyndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil was stopped by recent world No. 1 Justin Thomas. Thomas told Brazil that had the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 been in place in 2018, he would have come to Greensboro and played the Wyndham Championship. “(Thomas) was No. 3 (in the world) and he could have jumped up to No. 1,” Brazil said. “He said, ‘Look, that’s a lot of money. I would have come to Sedgefield and the Wyndham Championship to vie for that title.’” Brazil said Phil Mickelson had nothing but positive things to say. “(Mickelson) said, ‘You guys are going to get the Top 15 players or a lot of the Top 20 players to play your event now,’” Brazil said. “Everyone will come now.” The announcement, particularly with Wyndham as the title sponsor

of the regular-season championship, ensures the tournament at Sedgefield will remain the final event of the regular season, and enhances the event and Wyndham in the eyes of the PGA Tour. In recent years, many of the topranked players skipped the Wyndham to prepare for the playoffs. The announcement likely means many more of the top players will come to Greensboro. “There are so many things that we will benefit from, especially a better field,” Brazil said. “At our tournament, players are going to want to jump into the Top 10 and improve their ranking inside the Top 10.” In addition, beginning next season, the FedExCup Playoffs have been reduced from four events to three. Designed to add a new layer of drama over the course of the regular season,

the streamlined format puts greater emphasis on entering the playoffs with a high ranking. Next year’s 80th Wyndham Championship will be moved up two weeks to Aug. 1-4 — two weeks after the British Open, with a World Golf Championship tournament and an adjacent minor tournament the week before. Monahan’s announcement was complemented with the introduction of a simplified, strokes-based scoring system for the Tour Championship beginning next season, and the doubling of the total FedExCup bonus pool available to players, which now totals $70 million, inclusive of the prize money from the Wyndham Rewards Top 10. The Wyndham Rewards Top 10 — along with a new playoff schedule, points system and a combined winner of both the FedEx Cup championship and the Tour Championship — has drastically altered how seasons will conclude. “Win the Tour Championship and you are the FedExCup champion — it’s that simple,” Monahan said. “We have no doubt it will create a compelling, dramatic conclusion for the Tour’s ultimate prize.” Lastly, each player in the top 10 will be invited into Wyndham Rewards at its most exclusive Diamond level. Wyndham Rewards is the world’s most generous guest rewards program spanning more than 25,000 hotels, club resorts, affiliated resorts and vacation rentals. Wyndham has been a sponsor of the Wyndham Championship since 2007. Yet, 2018’s event marked the first year that Wyndham Rewards took the role of title sponsor following the split of Wyndham Worldwide into two separate public companies earlier this year — Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchise company and Wyndham Destinations, the world’s largest vacation ownership and exchange company and North America’s largest professionally managed rental business. “We’re thrilled with these changes. It’s been a long time coming,” Monahan said. “You take these changes and you combine them with the new and improved schedule and we think this is a significant step forward for the PGA Tour.” Not to mention, a big-time boon for the Wyndham Championship.

Tanglewood Championship Course set to reopen October 20th
By BRAD KING
few weeks prior to its grand reopening, the freshly restored Championship Course at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons survived its first big test. Hurricane Florence dumped about five inches of rain on the Triad in two days. The Championship Course’s new bunker complexes passed with flying colors. “There was no water in any of the bunkers. It was unbelievable,” said longtime Tanglewood director of golf Mike Wilcox. “There wasn’t even washout in the bunkers where they’ve already put in sand.” The Championship Course’s highly anticipated reopening is now slated for October 20, 2018, according to Wilcox. He said the ribbon cutting was a couple of weeks behind schedule due to Florence and other weather-related issues. Tanglewood’s bunkers were rebuilt using the “Better Billy Bunker System” popularized during Billy Fuller’s tenure as golf course superintendent at Augusta National Golf Club, home of The Masters.
TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2018
Originally known as the Enhanced Bunker Drainage Method, the primary purpose behind this specification was to minimize sand erosion and contamination from native soils during heavy rainstorms. The chief features of Better Billy bunkers are a two-inch gravel layer applied over the bunker floor and herringbone tile system capped with a geo-textile liner. The gravel serves as a conduit for water to transfer down the bunker floor slopes into the tile pipe system, greatly reducing if not eliminating sand movement. The liner secures the gravel blanket and prevents native soils underneath from contaminating the preferred bunker sand that was installed overtop the liner. This method also consistently reduces manpower requirements in bunkers following rainstorms by 80 percent or more. In addition, the restoration work eliminated a number of the Championship Course’s 99 bunkers that were superfluous, reducing the total to 78 — a reduction of nearly 50 percent in square footage. “It’s going to be fantastic,” Wilcox said. “We’ll have new bunkers and new greens on a golf course

that is such a great layout anyway. The green complexes are so good here; they’re so unique. It’s going to enhance the entire Tanglewood experience. “We didn’t want to change the integrity of the original Robert Trent Jones design,” Wilcox added. “The goal was to keep the teeth in the course but make it more playable for the average golfer.” The Championship Course’s Wall of Fame through the years is an impressive; A Who’s Who of some of history’s greatest golfers. Lee Trevino captured the PGA Championship at Tanglewood in 1974, holding off Jack Nicklaus and 62-year-old Sam Snead. Trevino also captured the Vantage Championship — the Champions Tour’s first million-dollar purse — on the Championship Course. Hale Irwin won a pair of Vantage Championships, while other winners included Gary Player, Larry Nelson, Jim Colbert and Al Geiberger. The Vantage Championship was contested at Tanglewood from 1987-2002. The tournament was supposed to end in 2001, but it was cancelled that year when it fell on the same week as 9/11.
Continued on page 13 www.triadgolf.com
Tanglewood from page 12 Tournament sponsor RJR said it was not going to allow such a prestigious event to end in such a tragic manner. “Reynolds agreed to come back and do it one more year,” Wilcox said. “It was pretty cool of them to step up. They said, ‘we’re going to come back and do it again right one more time.’” Billy Mayfair also won the USGA’s U.S. Amateur Public Links at Tanglewood in 1986. Scott Hoch captured the North Carolina Amateur there in 1976, while Lanny Wadkins was medalist in a 1971 PGA Tour Regional Qualifier at Tanglewood. “We’ve had some really nice events here,” said Wilcox, who has been at Tanglewood since 1990. Wadsworth Golf Construction Co. of Plainfield, Ill., was awarded a $2.4 million contract for the Tanglewood work— the first of four payouts from a $15 million bond referendum for Forsyth County Parks and Recreation approved by voters in November 2016. The money for the parks and recreation work is part of a $430 million total bond package. Tanglewood’s other two courses – The Reynolds and the Par 3 – have remained open while work was performed on the Championship Course. Pinehurst architect Richard Mandell, who oversaw
the Championship Course project, is currently creating a master plan for the Reynolds Course, along with the Par-3 Course and adjoining driving range. The Championship Course’s greens have been converted to Champion Bermuda grass, along with tree removal and irrigation upgrades. “It had a lot of dramatic bones,” Mandell said. “Now, it’s got that back.” Before work began, as he does on all his projects, Mandell headed a series of four complete course walk-throughs with Wilcox and superintendent Lee
Barefoot, as well as other regular golfers and staff. Their input led to numerous subtle touches such as the removal of several bunkers behind green complexes, easing the approach shot demands. “I wanted to know anything and everything (those who know the course best) think about, from property line to property line as far as strategy, playability and aesthetics,” Mandell said. “All my design work in the last 25 years is better because I embraced input from the end user.”

Forsyth Country Club reopens with new greens
By DAVID DROSCHAK
ris Spence worked on historic Forsyth Country Club about the same time he was doing the same to fellow Triad area layout Sedgefield Country Club, creating quite a Donald Ross return to form for both private clubs 12 years ago. The restoration project of the Ross design was the main focus back then for Forsyth as most of the original nuisances were lost over time, but Spence returned this year to coordinate several other course improvements, including a switch from bentgrass to bermudagrass on the greens and bunker remodeling. “We just had a member-guest and all the feedback has just been fantastic,” said Forsyth head pro John Faidley. The club reopened in mid September after being closed for the Spence work in July. “Forsyth had a pretty tough summer a few years back and that got them thinking about putting in bermudagrass greens, which as we all know now are at the highest performance level during the golf season,” Spence said. “They finally pulled the trigger this summer. “As with any golf course, once you do that you really have to look at the greens hard because some of the areas that may have been hole locations with bent greens may not be OK for the Champion Bermuda,” added the Greensboro-based architect. GreenScan 3D was hired to scan greens alongside Spence, and it was decided that some areas of the greens on Nos. 1, 6, 9 and 15, needed tweaking. “There were some hole locations where I had intentionally created 12 years ago, these really sort of treacherous little corners, you know when the club wanted to have a real high end tournament and they wanted ultra strategic hole locations. I put them at the upper end of the slope for the bentgrass, which is a little too high up for the bermuda,” he said. “Those four greens we took the sod off of and adjusted the greens prior to converting it over. No. 9 was the 18

The only real design change by Spence came on the par-3 14th hole. most comprehensive as we pretty much tweaked that whole two-tiered green. Once all that was done we reset the collars, which is pretty standard, to make sure the surface drainage is all good.” The ninth fairway was converted to Zoysia grass a few years ago, and Spence did the same to the first hole this time around. “And we tried to soften the bunkers a little bit right at the toe of the grass slopes,” he said. “Forsyth has these really bold and dynamic set of Ross bunkers and has some really authentic depth, with some bunkers out there 4-6 feet deep. They wanted new sand in there but they also went with the Better Billy Bunker system to enhance the drainage and enhance the performance of the bunkers.” The only real design change by Spence came on the par-3 14th hole. “There is a little pond short of the green that was a little closer to the
green than what I thought it should be and what Ross generally crossed water hazards,” Spence said. “It had an old railroad tie bulkhead wall that to me was not keeping with a 1920s golf course and I always wanted remove that wall and roll the grass down. But at the same time we needed to improve the pond’s overflow structure, so we rebuilt the dam, took the wall out and brought the distance between the green and the hazard closer to the tee and that way we could expand the approach of the green.” “It’s definitely a different hole,” Faidley said. “And taking some trees out around that hole also changed it visually. There is now a little bit of a wow factor.” Converting to bermuda greens, Spence was also charged with creating better sunlight around the putting surfaces.

“Taking out some trees really opened up some vistas and kind of gave the golf course a bigger look,” Faidley said. “That has been really well received.” “We probably took down as many as 50-60 trees,” added Spence. “And we created a brand new short game facility. The old short game facility I had previously designed was part of a short course concept, and they decided they weren’t going forward with that so we created a short game area that had more of a multi-directional use. The old one was basically two little par-3 holes that had they gone through with the original design would have been a par-3 course. But we doubled back and re-configured that short game area for a little better member use, a lot more variety. “It was time to do these projects,” added Spence. “Remember, golf courses are living, breathing items.” www.triadgolf.com

Richard Mandell stays busy during challenging industry times
By BRAD KING
inehurst-based golf course architect Richard Mandell has too much on his plate these days to stress about the challenges facing his industry. Despite new course construction plummeting during in the past decade, Mandell has remained a busy man. Since forming his company, Richard Mandell Golf Architecture in 1992, he has worked on about 75 projects around the world and earned particular prominence for his restoration of several Donald Ross courses. Last year, BoardRoom magazine named Mandell its “Golf Architect of the Year.” During the first quarter of 2018, Mandell wrapped up construction on one of only a handful of new construction projects in the United States, a Minnesota municipal layout called Braemar Golf Course. Now, he’s working on more than a half-dozen projects including a handful throughout the Carolinas, two in the Cleveland, Ohio-area and several more in Florida. He stays on the road two or three days a week. “We’re very busy,” Mandell said. “I haven’t played much golf in the last four or five years.” Not quite a household name, Mandell has, in more than two decades, demonstrated an ability to continually earn work in a demanding environment through his innovative design, detailed planning, environmental restoration, knack for creating golf courses for golfers and non-golfers alike, and successful budget control. One could argue that Mandell’s projects — which currently run the spectrum from municipal golf at iconic public facilities in three different states to private club golf in four states to a facility for championship-winning college golfers and future golf professionals — actually touch many more golfers than some of the more well-publicized new courses or renovations. Mandell’s most high-profile job in North Carolina right now is the Championship Course at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, a collaborative effort with Bruce Charlton, Robert Trent Jones II’s lead architect. Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., in 1960, Tanglewood’s luster has been restored by Mandell and Charlton. The duo has brought the course back to heights enjoyed as host of the historic 1974 PGA Championship as well as numerous Senior PGA Tour Vantage Championships and the 1986 USGA Publinx. “I want to know anything and everything (those who know the course best) think about, from property line to property line as far as strategy, playability and aesthetics,” Mandell said. “All my design work in the last 25 years is better because I embraced input from the end user.”
TRIAD GOLF TODAY • FALL 2018
In April, members of the historic Country Club of Asheville christened their recently restored Donald Ross golf course after Mandell led a comprehensive construction project, his fourth for Raleigh-based McConnell Golf, including Raleigh Country Club. Mandell’s work once again came in under budget and was named Honorable Mention in GolfInc magazine’s restoration of the year competition for private clubs. “Richard’s vast knowledge of traditional Ross designs enabled us to bring back CCA to its
original glory,” said McConnell golf director of agronomy Michael Shoun. After five years as architect of record at Myers Park Country Club in Charlotte, Mandell led the private club in a complete sand bunker restoration of the Ross design. The project also included two new green complexes and a new practice facility. The bunker restoration won a second consecutive honorable mention for a private club in GolfInc’s annual competition. At the 45-hole Bobby Jones Golf Club in Sarasota, Fla., Mandell is spearheading a restoration of the original 18 Ross-designed holes and renovation of the other 18 holes to create four interchangeable nines. As a result, the traditional 18s preferred by the locals can be played some days, while for the first time in 50 years the original Ross routing can be played on other days. Further demonstrating his innovative prowess, Mandell also designed an adjustable, nine-hole par-3 course that will allow management to set up the golf course to play in a variety of ways. The adjustable course will be offered to golfers on an hourly-rate basis as a large short-game practice facility on certain days. Mandell grew up in the Metropolitan New York area surrounded by some of the most storied golf designs in the country. He learned the game by sneaking onto a nearby municipal course there called Rye Golf Club. While helping lead his high school golf team to an undefeated senior season, Mandell was exposed to courses such as Winged Foot, Westchester Country Club and The Black Course at Bethpage State Park. He noted how those famed designs were routed following the lay of the land, not compromised by heavy machinery. He also discovered the quirks of architecture and the importance of shot making. “At that point, I thought it would be pretty fun to be a golf course architect,” he said. After graduating from high school, Mandel headed south to the University of Georgia where he earned a degree in landscape architecture. In Athens, Mandell learned all about length from UGA’s Robert Trent Jones University course.
Continued on page 21 www.triadgolf.com
Architect Spotlight from page 20 Mandell interned and after college worked for Pinehurst’s Dan Maples, from whom he says he learned about construction and putting theory into practice. He then worked for Denis Griffiths in Atlanta, where he received a completely different perspective of the business regarding office work and fieldwork. Mandell’s years with Maples and Griffiths — both former presidents of the prestigious American Society of Golf Course Architects — exposed him to high-end domestic and international work in an apprenticeship with two of the best in the business. In 1993, Mandell joined forces with a trio of civil engineers from Maryland to form Whole In One Design Group, which offered all design disciplines — golf architecture, civil engineering, land planning, environmental science
and landscape architecture — under one roof. Mandell served as lead architect on numerous projects and in April 2000 he bought out his partners and changed the firm name to Richard Mandell Golf Architecture. Mandell is a bit of a Renaissance man. In addition to being a licensed landscape architect in North Carolina and South Carolina, he may be the only golf architect in the world who is also a certified arborist. A noted golf historian and author, Mandell’s seminal work, “Pinehurst — Home of American Golf (The Evolution of a Legend)” won the prestigious International Network of Golf Book of the Year Award and was a finalist for Foreword Magazine’s Book of the Year Award and the United States Golf Association Book Award in 2007. “Nobody knows Pinehurst golf like Richard Mandell,” wrote golf architecture expert Ron Whitten in the book’s
forward. “He’s not just a golf architect who has lived in the Village of Pinehurst; he has studied its courses, investigated their origins and absorbed their design nuances.” Mandell has also contributed chapters to Volumes 1 and 2 of “Golf Architecture: A Worldwide Perspective,” as well as “Favorite Holes By Design,” and he has penned numerous articles on design for national publications such as Links Magazine, Golf Illustrated and Golf Course Architecture. For more than a decade, Mandell taught one of the only fully accredited, professionally taught classes on golf course architecture at North Carolina State University. He also helped host two weekly
Pinehurst sports radio talk shows along with the late TV broadcast legend John Derr, and former PGA Tour and Champions Tour player Pat McGowan. But Mandell, who turns 50 in November and has two young boys, is a family first father. He had to give up those extracurricular duties to coach his son’s travel basketball team — The Sandhills Machine — which last season won four tournaments around the state. Sometimes, there’s such a thing as having too much on your plate. “My kids would love to play golf,” Mandell said with a chuckle. “But I’ve been too busy to take them.”

aking a hole-in-one is always sweet but when it’s your first, it’s extra special. That’s especially so for the longtime players, who probably thought they might never record one. Tom Simmons, trying 50 years, and Joe Doorley, playing the game 40 years, certainly fit into that category. At the other end of the spectrum, there are players like Pete Vernon, who now has 10 aces, and Kevin Hipp, who recently notched his eighth – including two this year.

A turkey of an idea
As attractive as Dancing With the Stars
By DAVID DROSCHAK
ets, I don’t pay for anything I don’t have to these days. My wife Lisa tells me repeatedly that’s how rich people stay rich. Since I’m not wealthy I’ll take her word for it. As a golf reporter for more than 35 years now that means I’ve played my share of “free” golf. And while I don’t watch “free” TV anymore, I’ve been on the phone numerous times over the last year with creative means of reducing my cable bill. What does this all mean, you ask Bets? Well, there’s a 99.9999 percent chance I’ll be eating a cold turkey sandwich Nov. 23 rather than forking over jack to watch the Tiger vs. Phil pay-per-view golf event from Las Vegas. I’ve been to Vegas so I’m aware of Sin City’s creative ways of getting into your pocket. Is it really true casino carpets are designed in a pattern to keep you inside and gamble more? Growing up, I was a huge boxing fan, but to this day have never signed up for a pay-per-view boxing match, or WWE cage carnage.

Walsh dominates at Inverness Intercollegiate
By STEVE WILLIAMS
hat Thomas Walsh accomplished last spring while winning the ACC Championship was easily the top moment in his University of Virginia collegiate career. As he was wrapping up his junior year, Walsh finished 16-underpar and captured the ACC by two shots over Clemson’s Doc Redman, then the reigning U.S. Amateur champion and now a professional golfer. It was the best 54-score in the 65-year history of the tournament and Walsh’s first-ever collegiate title, one of 11 career top-10 finishes. Though it will be difficult to ever top winning the ACC, the former High Point Westchester Country Day School star came close when he notched the second victory on his college resume at the Inverness Intercollegiate in late September. A final-round 65 followed scores of 71 and 69 and his 205 broke the tournament record by four strokes.
“To win a championship on a golf course like that is always a feather in your cap. That was pretty incredible playing,” UVA coach Bowen Sargent said. The Inverness course in Toledo, Ohio, is regarded as one of the world’s best and has been home to four U.S. Opens and two PGA Championships. The collegiate event, now with 14 years in the record books, has seen great fields over the years. Dustin Johnson (Coastal Carolina), Brooks Koepka (Florida State) and Rickie Fowler (Oklahoma State) are among current PGA stars who have played in it.
This year’s field included top-ranked Tennessee, which took the team title at 12-over-par 864. Virginia tied San Francisco for second, seven shots off the pace. There were 12 teams and 78 players in the field. The fact that Walsh won by nine shots made it even more impressive. “Typically, you don’t see guys win by more than two or three shots whether it be on the professional level or all the way down to college,” Sargent said. “To dominate like he did and win by nine is almost unheard of. I’ve never seen that in my college coaching and I’ve been coaching 20 years.” Walsh’s final round didn’t get off to a great start as he bogeyed the first hole and didn’t score a birdie until the eighth. He added another at the ninth, then posted four consecutively on holes 12-15. One more on the 17th was the final red number on a 34-31 scorecard that completed his three-round run at 8-under. He was the only player under par. “Thomas’ game has really matured in the three years he’s been here as much from a mental standpoint as anything,” Sargent said. “It’s nice to see him grow and become a better player. For him to win on a course where majors have been played and to shoot the scores that he shot gives him a lot of hope that he can play at the next level.”
