Brian Stackpole, PGA Head professional, and their entire crew.
we look back on the week, a record 30 players withdrew when local media
released the weekend weather forecast. Shame on all of them, and shame
on the media for such a doom and gloom forecast. We never saw a drop of
rain during the Championship. We earn our living in the Outdoors, we
play this great game in all kinds of weather, both good and bad. Fair
weather golfers normally have very short, unsuccessful careers.
