yndham Championship tournament director Mark Brazil would normally be hitting the road in a few weeks to begin the process of recruiting the best field he can land for the 2020 event in mid August. You know the drill, shaking hands and kissing babies so to speak, trying to convince players like Tigers Woods and Phil Mickelson a final tune-up at Sedgefield Country Club a week before the scheduled FedExCup playoffs is the way to go. But these aren’t ordinary times with the outbreak of COVID-19. “The world is changing every hour with this thing – and every once in a while we get some good news,” Brazil said. “I feel terrible even worrying about a golf tournament but that’s my job, and it’s an important asset to North Carolina and the Piedmont Triad region, that’s for sure.” The PGA Tour, which saw seven tournaments canceled in March, April and May because of the global virus outbreak, plans to restart competition in mid June with the Charles Schwab Challenge, but this event in Texas and three more will be staged with no fans. In addition to no spectators outside the ropes, tournament directors like Brazil, who normally would be attending this tournament, and other “non-essential” folks won’t be permitted to attend either. “It’s unfortunate that the sponsors and fans don’t get to enjoy this event in person but that will happen next year,” Brazil said. “The Tour is trying to get events on TV and give the players an opportunity to compete. I almost think more importantly

a whole bunch of people who are just dying for sports on TV and PGA Tour golf is some pretty good content.” Brazil, Wyndham officials and the PGA Tour have been on weekly conference calls and forging ahead with plans for the August tournament in Greensboro, and part of that process at this point is an assumption fans will be allowed on the Donald Ross layout. “I would just say if you ask me if we are going to have the same amount of fans out there as usual, at this point I would say no,” Brazil said. “But I am very optimistic that we will have fans and sponsors fully participating. There is no question about it that golf is the sport that gives you the best opportunity to be able to pull off social distancing. I am very happy the governor in North Carolina did not shut down the golf courses because I think that shows that we can be responsible and be smart and still abide by the rules that the Trump Administration has put forward.” Brazil said he and his staff would need a minimum of five weeks to be able to “build out the golf course.” “At some point, we’ll have to set a date that will be our date of ‘do we move forward or do we not?’’’ he said. “You are talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars for building things, and what I’m talking about. ‘Are we going to set up the bleachers; are we going to set up the skyboxes; are we going to bring in the suites?’ Those things just aren’t like ‘oh one day yes and then the next day you are not coming.’ We have to build out the golf course.” With a PGA Tour schedule that will now spill more into the fall after the Wyndham Championship, Brazil feels his field may be stronger than normal. “Once we get back these guys are going to play more golf than we’ve ever seen before as far as many of the top players going three, four or five weeks in a row,” Brazil said. “And the Wyndham Rewards Top 10 is going to play a big role

this year, especially with the limited number of tournaments and these guys still playing for $10 million.” The Wyndham Rewards bonus program, now in its second season, will recognize the top 10 players who earn the most FedExCup points through the Wyndham Championship. The leader will earn $2 million, followed by $1.5 million for the

runner-up, with the 10th-place finisher earning $500,000. “For us, an absolute home run in August would be that we are allowed maybe a smaller number of people out here, which would include sponsors and spectators,” Brazil said. “I’m optimistic we’re going to have an event that North Carolina can be proud of.”

Reynolds Park celebrating 80th anniversary By David Droschak

f there was a state record for the most golf played at the same course Andy Smith would be a serious contender. He has been a member at Reynolds Park Golf Course since 1961, logging about 200 rounds there a year. That’s close to 12,000 rounds in his lifetime at the same venue. “I guess I’ll be swinging there until I’m gone,” the 81-year-old joked. Smith won’t be alone. The Perry Maxwell design, owned by the City of Winston-Salem, and leased and managed by T-Square Golf, has been a popular proving ground for the “common man” for decades as it celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2020. The golf course opened in 1940, one year after Maxwell designed the private country club Old Town, which is cross-town and less than 10 miles from Reynolds Park. The land for the Reynolds Park location, which once was a pig farm and cattle grazing area, was donated by the Reynolds tobacco family. It was one of Maxwell’s final solo projects before teaming up with his son for the remainder of his illustrious architectural career. Unlike Old Town, Maxwell’s budget at Reynolds Park prohibited him from moving a lot of dirt. “With it being a municipal owned course the city wasn’t going to spend as much money as other courses, so the rolling terrain you see is what was here back in 1940,” said Reynolds Park general manager Harold Kincaid. “The WPA under President Roosevelt helped do a lot of the work out here, picking up rocks and using mules and drag pans to smooth out the fairways.” The golf course has survived the lasting effects of the Great Depression, the end of segregation and the Great Recession, and everything in between, and is now successfully implementing social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I remember the old guy who used to live near the golf course telling us when he was a kid that lawyers and accountants would come out and work for $1 a day just to have something after the

www.triadgolf.com

Great Depression,” Smith said. “He was a water boy and they hooked up a tank on his back and he would walk around and everybody drank out of the same cup.” The old timers here can spin dozens upon dozens of yarns about this place, which was part of a larger park at the time that consisted of an arcade, skating rink and swimming pool. Only the golf course has survived for eight decades. “Well, it is still here because golf goes back to the 1800s and people want to play golf, and until sometime in the 1970s and even into the ‘80s there was a limited number of courses,” said Nick Jameson, the former longtime director of the Winston-Salem Parks and Recreation Department. “In those days if you were a working guy you couldn’t belong to Old Town or Forsyth Country Club, so where were you going to play? Mr. Reynolds built this course so everybody would have that chance to play.” Gerald Carter recalls first playing Reynolds Park as a teenager in the mid 1960s, going home and telling his grandfather about his experience there, explaining that it cost $1 a day or $50 for the entire year of golf. “He looked at me kind of incredulous and said: ‘You mean for $50 dollars you can play golf every day for a year?’” Carter said. “So, he pulled out two twenties and a ten and took me down there to join. I was 14. It was Easter Monday 1966. And I also remember my dad telling me golf would probably be one of those things that I would be interested in for a couple of months and then put it away and never do it again. So, he missed on that one … didn’t he?” The 6,379-yard course is wide open, has up-anddown natural topography and offers golfers a view of downtown Winston-Salem from the 10th green. It has few frills, and is a course recognized in the area for its excellent drainage after heavy rains. Seniors can play Monday-Friday for $23, while the highest weekend rate to play and ride is just $34. “You don’t lose a lot of golf balls generally,” Kincaid said. “But we have some very challenging holes. There is a little teeth to it, but it doesn’t beat you up. The guy who shoots 95 can come out here and have fun and not lose 12 balls.”

And likely find a game. The 68-year-old Carter, who has shot 63 here twice, used to pal around with a group of teenagers back in the day, often riding his bike or walking two miles from his house to Reynolds Park to play 36 holes a day. He and Smith are now part of a large contingent of seniors who love the opportunity to tee it up here … and tell old-time stories. “We have known most of these guys all of our lives.” Smith said. “The best thing through the years has been the people here,” added Carter. “And as far as the golf course itself you have to hit every shot; you have to be a good wedge player, you have to drive the ball well. There are some holes that are long enough to challenge your longer clubs and some holes short enough to be birdie holes – just a great variety. It is the kind of golf course you really don’t get tired of playing.” At one time during the 1980s, Reynolds Park logged close to 43,000 rounds. Kincaid’s management firm took over in 2008 and are in the second year of a five-year lease. He’s excited to see the City of Winston-Salem investing $400,000 in a new irrigation system that should be completed soon and help with overall conditioning of the layout. “We’ve had a good relationship with the city over the years, they are comfortable with us,” Kincaid said. “I have a lot of personal pride in this course because I do live in this area. I think that was part of the reason the city looked at our bid pretty strongly because we are local guys and have ties to the community, our kids all went to school here. I certainly don’t want to leave a poor legacy when I do walk away from this place.” Ellis Maples did do some redesign work here, but in the end, Reynolds Park is an old, traditionalstyle golf course with a strong Maxwell philosophy. “It is a golf course that was built in the day when everybody walked, so it’s like a lot of Donald Ross type of courses where they were built for exercise,” Jameson said. “Walking at Reynolds Park is a way of life. These types of courses don’t take up huge amounts of acreage and they have a lot of character. Remember, Reynolds Park was built for the average man; it wasn’t built as a country club. “I have always equated golf to being a farmer,” added Jameson. “You have to live and die with your greens, and your tees and your fairways. That’s what a farmer does, he’s out there with his crops and he lives and dies with the weather.” Kincaid notes that many across Forsyth County and beyond grew up playing the game at Reynolds Park, and it’s refreshing to see new faces. “We’re seeing more of the 25-45 years old guys during the virus outbreak,” Kincaid said. “If there is something good that may come out of this we may get some younger folks out here taking up the game. We’re seeing more females playing too, and it has really been good seeing parents bringing their kids out in the afternoons and playing. It makes me feel a little bit better about the Reynolds Park legacy and golf down the road.” TRIAD GOLF TODAY • MAY 2020

Empty Feeling Duke, Wake Forest women were eyeing NCAA championship rematch By David Droschak

TRIAD GOLF TODAY • MAY 2020

P

One of the more dramatic pieces of golf television last year was the championship of women’s college golf, which featured Atlantic Coast Conference rivals Duke and Wake Forest. It was true theater, with the Blue Devils edging the Demon Deacons on the final hole of match play for their seventh title under head coach Dan Brooks. A rematch was a real possibility as both squads returned future professional players, veterans of NCAA battles over the past few seasons. Entering mid March, Wake Forest was ranked No. 1 in the nation, while Duke was fifth. But neither will head to Grayhawk Golf Club in Arizona in late May. Not because of poor play but because of a pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak has cost college golfers their 2020 season, and potential lasting memories. For coaches, March and April presented new and different challenges, especially with each team’s rosters consisting of a fair amount of international golfers. Duke was one hour into a road trip to a tournament in Georgia when word came from university officials that the event had been cancelled because of the virus outbreak. Brooks and his team turned the two mini vans around and headed back to Durham. “Every end of the season is an emotional experience for me and it has been that way the whole time I’ve been at Duke,” said Brooks, whose 36th season with the school was cut short. “I’ve shed

Photos by Tim Cowie. at least one tear at every final dinner we’ve ever had but I wasn’t really taking it in that the season was over when we got the word. Then the season was cancelled all in the same 2-to-3 hour period. It didn’t sink in for me that I needed to wrap everything up with the team right then.” So, later that day, Brooks began contacting his squad, making necessary preparations on the fly. “I said, ‘Hey, we need to have our end-of-the-season annual dinner that we

always have and we need to have it in the next day because people are being sent home, people are being taken off campus,”’ he said. Meanwhile, Wake Forest was in a tournament in Arizona when coach Kim Lewellen received notice that the event – and the season – was over. “Losing the NCAA championship (last year to Duke) was heartbreaking, but losing a season is crazy,” she said. “At the time we didn’t know if (senior) Siyun Liu would be granted another year of eligibility, so in a matter of 10 minutes she was done with college golf. You can imagine what was going on in her mind, and with everything going on in China. You could see it in Siyun’s face at the time.” Lewellen scrambled to put together a team dinner out West. “Every player who wasn’t there called in,” the coach said. “So, we had a senior dinner for Siyun and an end-of-the-year banquet all in within six hours, trying to put some type of closure to the year the best we could at that moment.” Once back in Winston-Salem, Lewellen had an even more important task – keeping her players safe. “Sure, we all went through a team disappointment, but at the same time with so many of our players being international -from places like Italy, Switzerland, China and Ireland, countries that were affected by the virus quite a bit – I had to get into a mode of what should we do. Do they need to go home or do they stay here? We went from worrying about our championship chances to being really concerned about our individuals and then our com-

munity. All of that has been an interesting transition.” Three of Lewellen’s international players stayed in the U.S., while Lauren Walsh returned to Ireland. “We’ve all had to adapt as a team to different schedules,” Lewellen said. “The players are doing what they can with a few of their golf courses open, and everybody now seems to have a home gym, whether it’s in their driveway or whatever. They need to be ready for when they get to play again (this summer).” And then there are recruiting challenges and future eligibility rulings … and on and on. College golf coaches can make contact with prep golfers from the class of 2022 starting June 15. “We’re pretty far ahead with recruiting, so we’re not sweating things too badly, but it would be really tough having to recruit in this situation right now,” Brooks said. “It’s not tough yet for us at Duke, but if this goes on into the summer and other schools don’t have their (recruiting) classes lined up it could be pretty hard.” “As a coach it’s still day-by-day because we still continue to get information,” added Lewellen. “Usually you are worried about practice or recruiting trips, but it went from the season is cancelled, to making sure your athletes are safe, to making sure that now the on-line classes and the academics are going OK, to making sure they are making the right decisions at the right times. There are a lot of things the coach is now the middle person for. And from a coaching standpoint you don’t know what recruiting is going to be like. A lot of us are doing more research at home and just trying to follow up on things that way. I am calling it armchair recruiting.” Brooks also has his own personal disappointment. In addition to not being able to have his team defend its NCAA title, Brooks was slated to be the U.S. captain of the Arnold Palmer Cup team in early July in Oklahoma, but that event has now been pushed to December and will take place at Bay Hill in Florida. Wake Forest players Emilia Migliaccio of Cary and Rachel Kuehn of Asheville were selected to the women’s team and will also have to wait until the winter to participate. “The girls are bummed, but what our sport of golf always teaches us is you are going to make a bogey or a double bogey, or you’re going to get a bad bounce … and we got a big-time bad bounce this year,” Lewellen said. “But you adapt and figure out a way to get better. I think that’s our only choice now.” TRIAD GOLF TODAY • MAY 2020

Sedgefield upgrading professional experience with new short-game area By DAVID DROSCHAK

F

ans entering the main gate for the 2020 Wyndham Championship in mid August will get a bird’s-eye view of some of the top professional golfers in the game thanks to a new short-game area designed by the PGA Tour. A two-acre tract of land in front of the clubhouse and adjacent to where busses drop off golfing fans for the tournament, which was previously filled with tall pines, has been transformed into a larger and updated practice area. Wyndham Championship tourna-

ment director Mark Brazil approached the PGA Tour, and in particular Steve Wenzloff, the organization’s longtime senior vice president of design services, last year about the proposed project, which Wyndham is funding. Wenzloff, who also designed the updated short-game area at TPC Sawgrass in 2016, visited Sedgefield Country Club in the winter and tree removal work and permitting began, with shaping starting in early May. All is expected to be ready to roll for the Aug. 11-16 tournament. “The existing short-game area at Sedgefield was not a very sufficient size to handle a full-sized PGA Tour event,” Wenzloff said. “Sure, it has got-

ten by for some years now but it never really was ideal. And the tournament is now the season-ending event prior to the FedEx Cup playoffs so there is a bigger push from our players to try to hone in their games before jumping into the postseason. I think Mark acknowledged that it was something we needed to do to help the field.” “We have to compete as a town, as a golf course, with all these other tournaments, but also there are a bunch of cities out there that would love to have a PGA Tour event, so we have to do what we can to improve our product,” Brazil said. “We like to get to where everything is what Bobby Long likes to call A-plus-plus.”

The new short-game area will help create what Brazil is calling “a grand entrance” for the tournament’s fans as they enter the Sedgefield grounds, crossing a wooden bridge over the scenic creek that dissects the practice area. “It will be more of a showcase now and is going to be a cool experience for the fans, Wenzloff said. “We have also designed a spectator slope off the walk path where spectators can sit on the grass bank after going through the security checkpoint and really watch the players practice.” The outbreak of COVID-19 prevented Wenzloff from getting out onto the golf course to try to replicate some of the Ross features for the two new practice greens. However, he said ShotLink technology allowed him to review data from every green complex. Continued on page 15

“I got a feel for a few of the greens out there that had contours that were worth trying to emulate,” he said. The Wyndham Championship was founded in 1938 and is the sixth-oldest PGA Tour event excluding the Majors. Brazil declined to say what the investment cost. “John McConnell Golf has a perfectly good property here, one of the best in the state, and we really felt like that if you look at it over a 10-year period that it was a great investment for us.” Wenzloff said he worked with pros and logged their feedback on how they like to practice when he executed the Sawgrass project four years ago. But this time around is a little more unique. “We want to design features that are important to the pros and be able to incorporate those here, but at the same time at Sedgefield we recognize the Donald Ross history and have tried to be respectful of that, and will try to put something in place that has that course characteristic. “We’ll have the closely mowed areas off the side slopes and side shoulders of the green where they work on putting the ball up the slope if the want, or a pitch shot they can hit up the embankment to a tight pin,” Wenzloff added. “And we’ll have bunkers there and areas of rough they can practice from. There is not that much rough at Sedgefield the pros have to deal with, but a lot of their members here travel around in the McConnell Golf portfolio of courses so they will be able to find other aspects they can practice on here too.” Sedgefield members are excited to see the pros again in late summer … and also thrilled to try out the club’s new amenity. “This is just a huge space in the middle of land-locked Sedgefield that we’ll be able to do some good stuff with,” added Sedgefield general manager Chad Flowers. “This will benefit our members 50 weeks a year even though it is paid for by Wyndham, and the pros get to use it so it’s a win-win for everybody.”

It’s time to test your mettle on this rugged masterpiece. Renowned course architect Gil Hanse has transformed what Donald Ross first carved out of the sand a century ago into 18 dramatic holes you’ll want to play again and again.

Action Jackson Pinehurst Teen Turning Heads By DAVID DROSCHAK

L

ooking at his golfing resume over the last two years, few would argue that Jackson Van Paris is a unique talent. But just how special is the 16-year-old Pinehurst resident who is ranked first in the country in the class of 2021? You have to look deeper into his game and not just at his low scoring, which within a two-week span recently included a 61 at the Country Club of North Carolina Cardinal Course and a 62 at Tobacco Road, where he recorded his fourth career hole-in-one. “Still to this day, it amazes me, Jackson’s innate understanding of the game and why different things happen,” said Berkeley Hall director of golf Adam Kushner, who has been the swing coach for Van Paris since 2012. “He is one of those very few kids -- even when he was 8 years old -- that could tell you why the ball hooked or sliced. That is probably one of his biggest strengths; he has an unbelievable understanding of the game of golf. I don’t think anybody taught him that; I just think he was born with it.” Kushner first met Van Paris at CCNC when his parents brought him to the area from Chicago to participate in the U.S. Kids World Championship in Pinehurst. “His parents asked me if I would work with him, and we kind of just hit it off, there was a great rapport between his father, Jackson and myself,” Kushner said. “At that point they were living in Chicago and every time they would come to Pinehurst we would hook up, Continued on page 19

Action Jackson from page 18 and then they eventually moved to Pinehurst and I got to see him on a pretty regular basis.” Kushner moved to Bluffton, S.C., four years ago, but remains the swing coach for Van Paris, who in March captured the prestigious Junior Invitational at Sage Valley with a final-round 67. “The biggest thing we’ve tried to do and one of the biggest reasons he’s continued to work with me as opposed to a bigger name teacher is that we’ve kept it really simple,” Kushner said of Van Paris. “He feels very comfortable saying ‘when I do this or that it looks better than it feels’ and we can go back-and-forth and figure it out. It could be something as simple as changing his setup or ball position, and he gets right back on track. We’ve kept in touch enough where he never gets that far off his game.” Van Paris did win a U.S. Kids World Championship in his age division back in the day, but began to draw major attention when he qualified for match play in the U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach two years ago as a 14-year-old. And he became the youngest golfer to win a match at the USGA event since Bobby Jones in 1916. “The whole week I was kind of like ‘I’ve got nothing to lose,”’ Van Paris said of the U.S. Amateur experience. “I got told walking off the 18th green about the whole Bobby Jones record. I had no idea.” He also played in the Rolex Junior All American in 2017 and 2018, and won the 2019 AJGA Simplify Boys Championship. Van Paris won’t turn 17 until August, and at 6-foot-3 with a size 14 shoe, he’s still growing. His long, lean frame would suggest superior length off the tee, but his game doesn’t necessarily rely on power. “He understands what his game is,” Kushner said. “He plays very much within himself and he does not have a weakness. Overall his driver is long enough and very accurate, and that probably sets him up for a lot of things. But he is very much kind of a unique, complete package.” www.triadgolf.com

Van Paris seems to rise to the occasion when it counts the most. He made quite a first impressive on new Vanderbilt assistant golf coach Gator Todd. “It was coach Todd’s first day on the job, the first kid he ever watched wearing a Vanderbilt shirt and hat,” Van Paris said of a tournament he was playing in Memphis, Tenn. “I was as nervous as I could be but I chipped in on the first hole he watched me. That was good.” You think? Van Paris and his parents Todd and Jana, who play an important role in Jackson’s on-course and off-course life, visited Vanderbilt three times before verbally committing to play golf at the SEC school. Just like his golf game, the Van Paris family is thorough about education, too. Once in college, Van Paris said he will room with fellow junior golfing star Gordon Sargent, who lives in Alabama, and will major in Human Organizational Development. “We committed within two hours of each other,” Van Paris said. “We’ve become great friends through junior golf tournaments and we’ve roomed together in a ton of tourna-

ments. It’s pretty cool we could do something like this together.” Van Paris transferred from The O’Neal School to Pinecrest High School this season. He also played basketball at O’Neal before he broke his right foot in December 2018 and gave up the sport to concentrate solely on golf. “The game I broke my foot I had 16 points and right before half I went up for a rebound and I landed wrong on someone, and then someone stepped on my foot and that was it,” he said. “That was my last competitive game. I play for fun now.” Despite all his golfing success, Van Paris remains humble. This interview was set up a few months ago, but his father called at the last second to ask if his son could reschedule at a later date. The reason? Dad was concerned that his son was getting too much publicity at the time. “I give a ton of credit to Jackson’s parents, they have always prioritized things in his life,” Kushner said. “Golf is extremely, extremely important, but even when he was 10 years old and you had a lot of kids throwing clubs and having temper tantrums on the golf course you

would never see Jackson doing that. They really didn’t care if he won or lost but they very much cared about his behavior and attitude on the golf course, and through all of this they have made school a big priority for him. They have instilled the fact that golf may or may not work out, but who you are as a person is going to be with you the rest of your life. His parents have done an amazing job with that.” What are the odds that Van Paris will play professionally one day? “We try not to get ahead of ourselves but the thing that is amazing is he has been great since he was really young and he keeps getting better, and his overall demeanor and humbleness will prove him well moving forward,” Kushner said. “Two years ago if you would have asked me that question about being a pro I would have said there is a small chance, maybe 25 percent, but right now he continues to get better so I would give him as high of a percentage as just about any kid playing golf today. He is that good.” “The thing about golf is you’re not going to win every week, so there is always something to strive for,” Van Paris said. ”I am naturally a pretty modest person. At school I have an English class and a majority of the kids in the class didn’t know I played golf until the last month of the class. Somebody said ‘he’s first in the world for his age’ and the kids couldn’t believe it. My goal is to play professional golf, but if anything I can become more self confident. I have never really needed anyone to ground me, if anything I’m not confident enough myself.” Heading into May, Van Paris is in line to make the 2020 Junior Ryder Cup team, one of the teenager’s goals for this fall. “I love golf because it is peaceful,” Van Paris said. “You get to go to some of the coolest places. I got to go to Pebble Beach, which is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I went to Australia, France, and to almost every state in the U.S. The places that golf takes you and the people you meet are not like any other sport.”

Burlington junior on a hole-in-one roll By STEVE WILLIAMS

F

ifteen-year-old Connor Massey made his first hole-in-one on March 14. And that was just the beginning. He did it again on April 16 and again eight days later. All three aces came at Alamance Country Club on three different holes. “Good shots and a lot of luck,” Massey explained. Doug Massey, Connor’s dad and the club champ at Alamance CC, has five career aces but none since 1999, five years before his son was born. He was witness to all three of Connor’s memorable shots. The young Massey is a rising star in the junior ranks and is a sophomore at The Burlington School, where he is a member of the golf team. Connor carries a handicap index of 3.2 and he’s obviously been playing a lot of golf this spring. These aces weren’t cheap shots by any means as the par-3s at Alamance CC are as tough as they come. The first one came on the 175-yard eighth hole with a 5-iron. Connor registered the ace in the club’s Cabin Fever tournament as he was part of a foursome with his dad, Dustin Moore and Mike Chisholm. The second ace was the result of a 200yard shot with a 5-iron on the 14th hole. Chisholm was again in the group with Doug and Connor. Ace No. 3 was on the 150-yard fourth hole with an 8-iron. Jay Clayton and Tom Monahan were in the foursome with the Masseys. None of the hole-outs could be seen from the tee. “On all of them we had to wait until we got up to the green,” Connor said. “We were looking around and when no balls were on the green someone said ‘there’s your ball’ [in the cup].” Connor will no doubt be out at Alamance CC trying to hit for the par-3 cycle. The 16th hole awaits.

Two aces in the same round stand out, and I’ve noted that at least twice over the years. Connor Massey’s three aces in a 41-day span is truly amazing. How about two aces in a span of 14,558 days? Yeah, that’s me. I finally scored my second on April 28. You can read the details among the others on the list that follows: 20

Daydreaming about the next golf excursion By DAVID DROSCHAK

W

e’ve been blessed over the last two months that golf has been “deemed” essential to our wellbeing across North Carolina during the COVID-19 outbreak. Some golfers in other states have not been as fortunate and can’t wait to hit the links as the weather starts to warm. There is nothing like some fresh air and a birdie or two to take your mind off a pandemic. Many of us are also anxious to plan our next “golf trip.” I was so looking forward to a May media outing (which has been moved to the summer) in Missouri where I was going to tee it up on a new course designed by Tiger Woods. And while golf courses in the Tar Heel state have remained open, thousands who planned to either fly or drive here in the early spring for annual golf vacations from places like Canada, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania have been left with nothing more than cabin fever. We hope they return soon, especially since North Carolina’s economic golf model relies on regional travelers, outof-state guests who log rounds at private

The happening that brings the seriousness of the virus home to me is the shuttering of all the Pinehurst Resort properties. A Pinehurst hotel has been open every single day since 1895 through epidemics and wars. It is ironic that the original intent of Pinehurst was a healthy escape for the unwell. When I last checked, the Carolinas Golf Association is hoping for an early June start. I suspect this is a day-to-day decision with everyone watching the North Carolina statistics. I particularly feel sorry for all the losses in fund raising connected to golf’s charity events. Golf has been a go-to for so many quality non-profits. I hope that everyone who regularly supports these types of events will take the time to make at least a small donation directly to that charity. Much is needed these days. Golf may not be essential, but it is critically important to the economic health of our state and the mental health of the players. May the path open wide, much sooner than later.

ake Forest women ‘s golf head coach Kim Lewellen has been named the 201920 Golf Pride Grips national coach of the year by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association, her second national award in the last nine seasons. The reigning Atlantic Coast Conference coach of the year is no stranger to being at the top in her 16 years as a head coach. She won the LPGA National College coach of the year in 2011 while at the University of Virginia, where she was also named the ACC coach of the year three times over her 11-year tenure with the Cavaliers. In just her first two seasons as the head coach of the Demon Deacons, Lewellen has mentored five AllAmericans, won the ACC team and individual titles, and finished runner-up at the NCAA Championships. This year, the Deacons had a record-breaking four All-Americans and finished the COVID19 shortened season ranked No. 1 in the country by Golfstat. They won four team titles and three individual titles in just seven events. The season’s first victory came at the ANNIKA Intercollegiate in September where Wake Forest finished 17-under, 14 strokes ahead of the runner-up. All-American freshman Rachel Kuehn took home the individual title from the ANNIKA with a five-shot victory. It was her collegiate debut in the lineup. www.triadgolf.com

The Demon Deacons went on to win their next event, the Lady Paladin Invitational at the end of September by five strokes. Senior All-American Siyun Liu finished in a tie for second place while the rest of the team finished inside the top 25. Closing out the fall, Wake Forest won the team title in match play at the East Lake Cup as sophomore Vanessa Knecht took home the individual stroke play title. In what ended up being the final event of the season, the Demon Deacons took home the team title at the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate in March by 26 strokes. Junior All-American Emilia Migliaccio captured the individual title by one stroke. All the Demon Deacons finished inside the top 20 in their best team performance of the year. “This honor is special for many reasons but most importantly because it was awarded by my colleagues,” Lewellen said. “This award reflects those brilliant individuals that surround me at Wake: our administration, my associate head coach Ryan Potter, all our support staff, and most importantly those young ladies that have put their trust in us and show up to work hard each and every day.” Lewellen began her collegiate coaching career in 2003 when she spent one season as the head coach of the men’s and women’s teams at The Citadel. She then went on to be the head coach at East Carolina for two seasons before beginning her tenure at Virginia in 2007.

Mountain resort Rumbling Bald converting to Bermuda greens at Apple Valley Golf Course By DAVID DROSCHAK

R

umbling Bald Resort, one of western North Carolina’s only 36-hole golf destinations, will convert the greens on its marquee course to Champion Bermuda grass over the summer. Located in Lake Lure and designed by Dan Maples, Apple Valley Golf Course will begin the transition from its original bentgrass greens to Champion Bermuda in June. The grass was chosen for its superior performance profile, heat tolerance and maintainability, resort officials said. “We provide our golfers with the best possible experiences and Champion Bermuda checked all the boxes,” said Rumbling Bald general manager Jeff Geisler. “The layout and routing by Dan Maples at Apple Valley is so pure from tee-to-green that smooth, true rolling Champion greens are the perfect fit.” Continued on page 25

Rumbling Bald from page 24 Apple Valley is in elite company with its conversion from bentgrass to Champion Bermuda. Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, site of the 2017 PGA Championship, and Pinehurst No. 2, host of the 1999, 2005, 2014 U.S. Opens, have undergone the transition in recent years. “We did our homework and Champion Bermuda came out ahead by a long shot,” said Rumbling Bald director of golf course maintenance Matt Lovell. “We’re excited to see golfers’ reactions and receive their feedback once the conversion is complete this summer.” Apple Valley stretches to nearly 6,800 yards and features expansive views of Bald Mountain and the surrounding Lake Lure area. Maples estimated 75 percent of shots at Apple Valley are either level or downhill, virtually unheard of for a mountain course. Shimmering mountain lakes adorn 12 holes, but water only occasionally comes into play. Located along the eastern escarpment of the Blue Ridge Mountains, golf is played year-round at Rumbling Bald resort. Champion Bermuda demands less irrigation, fertilizer and pesticides than bentgrass, and is suitable to North Carolina’s warm summer nights and temperate winter climate. In addition to Apple Valley, golfers enjoy 6,300-yard Bald Mountain, the resort’s original 18-hole mountain-style course. Designed by George Cobb protégé W.B. Lewis, movie buffs always appreciate the picturesque 16th green, the backdrop of a scene from the movie “Dirty Dancing.”   Apple Valley is scheduled to reopen in late August. For a full list of course maintenance dates and to learn more about Rumbling Bald’s golf courses and packages, visit www.rumblingbald. com. The resort’s 150 vacation rental homes, condos and studios are ideal for golf groups of various sizes and feature golf course and mountain views. Post round, golfers can relax at Legends on the Lake, casual dining on shores of Lake Lure, or grab a hearty sandwich and cold drink at Pinnacle Southern Kitchen at the Apple Valley clubhouse. Rumbling Bald is rich with amenities and activities, including scenic Lake Lure boat tours, boat rentals, tennis, pickleball, a full-service spa and hiking trails. It’s the perfect base camp for exploring the natural wonders of western North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains. www.triadgolf.com
