  4. Boca Pro wins the 2019 US Professional Hickory Golf Championship The Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club opened in 1922 and laid out by noted architect Tom Bendelow, was described by the Tampa Tribune as a brute of a course stretching out over 6,400 yards. Probably not worthy by today’s standard but a stout test for the century old clubs used back then. The links held up well against some excellent modern-day hickory golfers with Boca Raton professional Jeremy Moe carding a 77 to have his name affixed to the John Shippen Cup. Using a 1908 replica ball Jeremy shot the same score that Willie Smith did the first round at Myopia Hunt Club in the 1908 US Open. The winning average for 4 rounds in that Open was 80.5. Leaderboard Jeremy Moe 77 $1,200 Thomas Garnier 80 $900 Jeff Leonard 81 $530 Mark Harman 81 $530 Steve Herron 81 $530 Tom McCrary 82 $300 James Lowe 83 $125 Joe Mentz 83 $125 Keith Wightman 83 $125 Wally Armstrong 83 $125 Jennifer Cully 84 $100 Mike Stevens 86 $100 Gregor Jamieson 87 Duke Trombetti 88 Kyle Quinn 96 Ezra Evans NC Jim Cocchi NC Earl Hines NC

    Welcome to the board dedicated to current WGTF and International PGA members. We look forward to a good exchange of ideas. As professionals, we expect exchanges on this board to be of a professional nature. Screen names must consist of your first and last name. Nicknames or monikers such as "GolfDude1" will not be allowed. There will be no anonymity here, real names must be used. Let's have some good, productive conversations and make our organization and ourselves the best we can be when it comes to the profession of teaching golf

    Regional Tournament Info Posted?

    Hi Jim - Thank you for bringing this up. We will get the site updated with the dates and information we have thus far as soon as possible.
  15. Now that we are past the middle of January 2019, it would nice to open the USGTF website and read when the 2019 Regional tournaments are going to happen. Some of us do planning with our calendars. One-day or two-days? Cost of entry? I know from talking to members that the Southwest and Southeast tournaments will happen sometime in May, hopefully at least two weeks apart. The Northeast tournament usually is later June. The Central tournament has been listed on the Michigan-Ontario Golf Teachers Tour (MOGTT) website, along with their full schedule for some time now. I have a personal mini-goal to play in them all, so maybe the Northwest tournament won't be a week apart from the Southeast, like last year. I maintain two websites -- my own and another for a hobby club I belong to. How hard can this be?
  16. How did the season go at the new teaching location?

  17. I have a tee time at 2:39 on Sunday at Ussers Creek.

    Dave Belling, Brent Davies, You and myself as the 4 some. Is Bob playing in the event? Let me know and i will book a second tee time.

      I wish I could come, but I can't afford to take the time off.  And I won't be able to come in October unless the USGTF pays my way as part of the office staff.

  20. Any change on your role in the US/Can Cups this fall?   I am contacting Marc Ray early next week to go over a few details and ideas for some fun events. Anything you would like me to pass on or get info on?

    Hope to see you in Oct.

  23. Back in 2001, a cooperative venture between the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation and the USGTF took place in British Columbia with the playing of the North American Golf Teachers Cup. Although the venture was short-lived, it was well received by the participants. This year, the CGTF Cup and the United States Golf Teachers Cup will be held at Ussher's Creek Golf Club in Niagara Falls, Ontario, October 2-3. As the format becomes finalized, I'll provide more details.
