    Regional Tournament Info Posted?

    Thanks, Jennifer, and good job!
  3. 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?

    Where is the money list? It's not here and it's not on the USGTF website. I'd like to see one by division.

    Southeast Region Tournament Results

    Mike Stevens is not just waxing eloquently about World Woods. Both courses are marvelous for a golf tournament -- large fairways, smooth greens, but enough trouble to punish wayward shots. Excellent condition and play was moving right along. Thanks Mike!

    Jack Nicklaus has had the best answer -- for years now -- and it's regulating the ball they use. Certainly, the ball manufacturers have the technology to tweak the flight distance, and each pro could still use his preferred brand. That way, a number of classic old courses could be returned to competition -- simply adjust the ball to the course. Everybody's distance control numbers would be affected -- but, they are pros and all are affected, so let them adjust. It wouldn't be too hard to make balls for tour pros that work at, say, 6400-6600 yards, 6600-6800 yards, 6800-7000 yards, and so on. I have always felt that the pros should use a hole that is smaller than what typical amateurs use, or amateurs get a bigger hole.
