Golf Season in June
While the golf tour season begins each year in the midst of winter here in New England, the real start of the golf season is in June. After a long and cold fall and winter, courses in New England are ready for another season and amateur events are in full swing with conditions and weather finally coming together; it is by all measures “Prime Time”.
June is U.S. Open month and at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania, about a 4-5 hour drive from us. This year’s event has already created a major buzz in the golf world. Tiger Woods, who has won four times already in 2013 with wins at the Farmers, The World Golf Championship, The Arnold Palmer and The Players Championship, is off to one of the best starts in his career. Tiger has entered only seven events this season and won four of them; some say…
Tiger is not back yet, how it that possible? Tiger won his last major five years to the day on June 16th, which is the date of the final round on the 113th U.S. Open at Merion, stay tuned. At the finish of the U.S. Open each year, the tour makes their way to New England for The Travelers Championship on June 17th – 23rd at the TPC River Highlands course in greater Hartford. Each year a host of Team New England Tour players come home to the local fans. Keegan Bradley, JJ Henry, Scott Stallings, Tim Petrovic, James Driscoll and Brett Quigley are all expected at this year’s event. The TPC River Highlands Course is a great venue for fans to get up close with their Local tour players. On the heels of the Travelers is a fan favorite in New England, The CVS Caremark Charity Classic held at Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington, RI. Billy Andrade and Brad Faxon bring some of the best from all the tours to the shores of Narragansett Bay for a taste of Rhode Island hospitality.
It’s time to get out and play, see you on the turn.WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?
