MGN ON THE ROAD
Detroit- Belle Isle 9-Hole Course
We visited Belle Isle to check out the work that Roger Penske has been doing in getting
the island ready for the upcoming Detroit Grand Prix that will be held over the Labor Day
weekend. While he is sparkling things up for one kind of driver, it will also help those
that want to venture there to play their nine hole course or participate in the First Tee
Penske, who is watching the work at Belle Isle, like a hawk, says, "People love what
we're doing here. They appreciate what we're doing. This place, if you kept it up like
this, and did what you've got to here, let me tell you something, you've got one of the
nice places you could ever have."
Hartland-Dunham Hills GC
A couple of decades ago, a few of my buddies and I established the MJO Golf Tournament.
We usually end up with 6-10 foursomes playing each year and we all have a great time. I
got caught up with many lifelong friends for some conversation and a couple of adult
beverages. Our foursome won this scramble style tournament one year, with four eagles
and 14 pars. It was a killer day at Dunham and everyone had a sensational time. I
mention it only as a reminder to myself of what a great game we all share. Hooray Golf.
TREETOPS TOPS IN GOLF INSTRUCTION
The grades are in and Treetops is Tops in golf instruction in Michigan. Rick Smith nailed
down the top spot in Michigan, 8th nationally, and Rick Smith Academy instructors own 4
out of the top 7 spots in the state which includes Rick Smith, Henry Young, Jason Guss and
Jeff Goble. (note: Jeff Goble now teaches mostly with Kendall Academy but still does some
schools for the Rick Smith Academy) Jason Guss was included on the Top 20 teachers in the
nation under the age of 40. Looking closer at the list, he is one of only 4 instructors
30 or younger, thus you could say he is in the top 4 NATIONALLY who are 30 years old or
younger. Kevin McKinley is pumped over the continued dominance of their golf school
While Judy Mason, did not make the cut on this list, she is also one of the powerhouses of
Treetops instruction. She will have taught over 250 students in her 2007 class and many
are Ladies School alums that comeback for refresher courses. Michigan Golfer Television
will be featuring the Ladies Golf School in an upcoming show.

MICHIGAN GOLFER TV-The 105th Western Amateur Preview
We are delighted to bring you our Western Amateur Preview Show. We had Robert Trent
Jones, the designer of Point O'Woods, step up to the tee to begin the show, picking up
some of his thoughts in a 1987 video we shot. It was Jones who said that " golfers
attack par and the architect defends".
We then sprinkled into the mix, some footage from past winners of the Western Amateur;
Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickleson, Lanny Wadkins, Steve Melynk, Bubba Dickerson, Tiger
Woods, Ryan Moore & Jamie Lovemark. In addition, we give you a peek or two of this
storied course. This year's Western Amateur starts August 1 and runs through August 5.

THINKING COOL THOUGHTS-UPPER PENINSULA GOLF
Frank Guastella, owner of the Red Fox Run GC in Marquette, wrote a nice piece in this
month's NGCOA Golf Business. Basically, he was discussing the energy and ideas that it
now takes to create business for a golf course. In the case of the Red Fox Run property,
it was all about introducing new people, young and old, to the game. He was assisted in
his endeavor by the Link Up 2 Golf program. The article indicated it was hard work, but
they have introduced golf to people who had not had the game in their lives before.
The western portion of the Upper Peninsula gets much of its tourist golf traffic from
Wisconsin and Illinois, while the eastern portion gets its traffic from Canada and
southern Michigan. Now, that the heat of summer is finally here, it is the time to make
that trip north to play some of these great courses.
We give you an introduction of Upper Peninsula golf in three of our past shows; Pine
Mountain, Marquette and Wild Bluff.
Our Pine Mountain show features our hosts Mike Duff and Peter Allen as they chat about
the great Timberstone Golf Course, which is now part of Pine Mountain Resort. Timberstone
was one of 17 courses to receive 5 stars from Golf Digest.
In our Marquette show, Mike Beckman who normally does our Wisconsin reporting, returns to
his hometown to interview Marc Gilmore about the new Greywalls course. Frank Guastella
also makes an appearance and talks about Chocolay Downs and his own course, Red Fox Run.
Finally, Mike Husby and Bill Shelton discuss the merits of the Wild Bluff GC at Bay Mills
WOMEN’S OPEN SETS RECORDS AT CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN
The Michigan PGA Women’s Open presented by Century 21 will boast a record purse and the
largest field in tournament history when the championship returns to Crystal Mountain’s
signature Mountain Ridge course, July 16-18.
In its fifth straight year at Crystal Mountain, the Michigan PGA Women’s Open presented by
Century 21 is a three-day event open to professionals and amateurs from across the nation
with a 15 handicap or less. The 54-hole event has attracted players from 15 different
states and Canada including some who spend time on the LPGA Tour and Futures Tour.
This will be a landmark year for the event which not only features a record $42,500 in
prize money but the largest field in its 13-year history. This year’s total of 94 players
eclipses the previous record of 92 participants set at Crystal in 2005.
Five former champions will be among the players in the 2007 Michigan Women’s Open
presented by Century 21 including defending champion, Kris Tamulis. Tamulis, who has local
ties to Onekama, Michigan, recently finished 35th in the U.S. Women’s Open held in
Southern Pines, North Carolina. Other former champs who will be in attendance include
two-time winner and Crystal Mountain Golf Ambassador, Elaine Crosby, Stacy Snider Olson,
Breanne Hall, and Suzanne Green Roebuck who won the very first championship in 1994 and
again in 1999.
As in previous years, an impressive roster of amateurs will also take part in the Michigan
Women’s Open presented by Century 21. Stephany Fleet, a native of Dewitt and player at
Eastern Michigan University, finished runner-up in the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links
Championship in June

"THESE 'YOUNGER' GUYS ARE GOOD"
The 105th Western Amateur is coming up at the end of the month and for those that have not
seen it, this could be your year. Long up against the Buick Open, this year, the Western
Amateur now dominates the calendar. The course is designed by the late great, Robert
Trent Jones and had, for years, placed in top 100 golf course lists of Golf Digest and
As you can see from the list below, great golfers have appeared and won the Western
Amateur over the years. Of late, Jamie Lovemark, 2005 Western Am Champion & 2007 NCAA
Individual Champion, was the only amateur to make the cut at Tiger Woods' new AT&T
National tournament. Lovemark tied for 45th (67-74-73-71). Ryan Moore, 2004 Western
Amateur Champion tied for 25th (74-70-66-72) . Won Joon Lee of Australia, 2006 Western
Amateur medalist, will play in the British Open. Lee qualified in the International Final
Qualifying Tournament in Asia. Ryan Moore, 2004 Western Amateur Champion, also
qualified for the British Open at the International Final Qualifying tournament at Oakland

POLLACK & HARDING WIN THE E-Z-GO SHANTY CREEK PGA CLASSIC
Joe Pollack and Tom Harding shot an 11-under-par 61 in the final-round scramble at Schuss
Mountain to finish 21-under par 123 at the 28th Annual E-Z-GO Shanty Creek PGA Classic.
Pollack (Boulder Creek GC) and Harding (Kendall Academy of Golf) opened the 36-hole
tournament with a 10-under 62 on The Legend during Monday’s better-ball tournament. The
pairs’ 11-under par 61 on Tuesday lead to a combined score of 21-under-par 123 to claim a
2-stroke lead over Shane Hollandsworth and Jerry Roman, both from Bay Harbor GC.
In addition to splitting the $1800 purse, Pollack and Harding each receive a 10-year
exemption to compete in the Tournament of Champions, scheduled for July 20-21 at Boyne

ROSS "ROGELL" COURSE-ALIVE AND WELL
While “Google-ing” Rogell Golf Course, I came across your site. I noticed a brief mention
of our new course. Let me invite you to take a look at our ongoing restoration of this
great Donald Ross designed course. I noticed you wrote, “Rogell WAS a Donald Ross
course.” Actually, the original layout and all its excitement and challenge is still
there and Detroit area golfers have come back in droves.
Despite what you may have heard, great things are happening in Detroit and this is one of
them. I took some photos in early June and they’re on our website at http://www.greatergr
ace.org It’s even better now. We’re probably the best “golfing value” in SE Michigan.
($20 weekdays, $25 wknds – 18 holes) In fact, we are just one entity revitalizing our
neighborhood, one step at a time.
In addition, it’s becoming a place where city and suburban golfers come together to enjoy
a great game. Have a great day.

MORE ABOUT THE ROSS ROGELL COURSE
A LEADING GROUP OF JEWISH CITIZENS LED BY FAMED DETROITER MAX FISHER ENVISIONED A
BEAUTIFUL COURSE ON THE VACANT LAND AND CREATED WHAT WOULD BECOME A MOTOR CITY GEM. IT’S
NOW THE ONLY “AFRICAN-AMERICAN” OWNED COURSE IN MICHIGAN.
(Detroit) – June 26, 2007 – The year was 1914. Leading citizens of Detroit’s Jewish
community including famed Detroiter Max Fisher opened the Phoenix Golf Club, later to
become the Rogell Golf Course. Now its new owners, Greater Grace Temple, have preserved a
special piece of the city’s history as well as a local “golfing gem.”
“This purchase is very significant in that we have become the ONLY African American owned
and operated golf course in the entire state,” says GGT Pastor, Bishop Charles H. Ellis
III. “This course and club has a rich legacy dating back to 1914 and that includes the
likes of such prominent men as Donald Ross and Max Fisher. We are excited to continue the
revitalization of this northwest corner of Detroit with this $2-million investment.”
The “New” Rogell Golf Course is now one of only “six” African-American owned courses in
the United States. Designed by famed golf course designer Donald Ross, the 18-hole course
has been open for 11-weeks and has already stirred excitement among Detroit area golfers,
who know the course for its challenging holes, and its design splendor. Players also find
plenty of excitement with its rolling hills, as well as the Rouge River coming into play
on the back nine.
The church purchased the course from the City of Detroit for $2.1 million, and is
committed to an excellent maintenance program that will offer golfers a beautiful and
first-rate golfing experience at an affordable price. For tee times and information call

YIP YIP YOORAY
New Theory on the Yips Published
The article above presents a new theory of the yips put forward in The Efficient Golfer,
the first golf book written for the single-digit player. During his five years of research
for the book, author Robert Anthony Prichard, noticed that a handful of golfers did not
let the 100 lbs of centrifugal force generated by the driver on the downswing extend their
hands and club. All five (Snead, Hogan, Trevino, Miller and Faldo) became famous for
their ballstriking abilities. But they also all developed the yips that cut short their
These golfers were able to prevent any extension of the ir arms and club by over-gripping
their driver with their forearm muscles. This overuse resulted in tearing some of the tens
of thousands of small muscle fibers that make up these muscles, and scar tissue
developed in and around the muscles. This scar tissue built up over time, and the tense,
bound up muscles then spasmed when they had to lightly grip their putter.
Three modern golfers have adopted the over-gripping strategy in order to improve their
ball-striking with disastrous results.
Sergio Garcia has gone from #4 on tour in putts per round to #141. Vijay Singh has had to
go to the long putter. And Tiger Woods has seen his ranking in putts per round drop from
#20 in 2004 to #137 in 2006 after he adopted the gripper strategy in order to better
control his drives.
More on this new theory can be found here http://www.the-efficient-golfer.com/tiger-woods-
NGF: MAY GOLF ROUNDS PLAYED REBOUND; GOLF DATATECH NUMBERS CONCUR
After a dismal April when rounds played in the U.S. plunged 15.1%, May rounds rose 5.4%.
Because May typically has the largest volume of rounds in the first five months of the
year, the year-to-date deficit was more than cut in half, according to the National Golf
Foundation. Year-to-date rounds, which had fallen 9.0% through April, were down only 3.9%
The reporting is based on data from operators at more than 1,800 golf facilities. For the
full year 2006, rounds played were up 0.8%.
Of the 11 regions surveyed, nine showed year-to-date declines. Only the Southwest and
Northwest showed increases, up 3.6% and 3.4% respectively. The sharpest decline was in the
South Central region, down 12.2% year-to-date. The Mid-Atlantic region was not far behind,
For the five months, play at premium public courses (those with peak season weekend green
fees with cart above $70) was down the least (-1.6%). At value courses (those with peak
season weekend green fees with cart below $40), rounds played have fallen 4.2%. At
standard courses ($40-70), play was down 3.3%. Overall, rounds played at all public
courses fell 3.7%. Private courses didn't do quite as well, with rounds played for the
five months falling 4.6%.
According to Golf Datatech, rounds were up 5.5% May 2007 compared to May 2006 and are
down 3.0% year to date. The report includes 2,865 reporting courses.

KENDALL ACADEMY CONTINUES ITS AWARDS HARVEST
San Francisco doesn’t have the only All-Star game this summer. The equally stellar Kendall
Academy at Miles of Golf in Ypsilanti has placed five of its staff members on Golf
Digest’s list of the best teachers in Michigan and the voters were all fellow teaching
professionals. (The list appears in Golf Digest’s August issue, on newsstands beginning
July 10, and accessed by visiting http://www.golfdigest.com )
Not only that, the All-Star game in Francisco next week is a one shot affair. The Kendall
Academy “All-Stars” are on the tee all season and led by Dave Kendall, recent winner the
Michigan Senior Open and twice voted “Teacher of the Year” by Michigan PGA members. “We’re
very pleased and proud of this Golf Digest recognition,” says Kendall, “especially knowing
the voting was conducted by our peers in Michigan.”
Joining Kendall (ranked 4th) in the All-Star lineup are Jeff Goble (#3), Tom Tontapanish
(#5), Scott Hayes (#12) and Paul Haase (#13). Golf Digest’s voters picked just 17 Michigan
instructors and the Kendall Academy’s quintet leads the state from one facility. Kendall,
Tontapanish, Haase and Goble had been ranked among the best in the state previously and
Goble was on the Rick Smith Golf Academy when it was named among the top 25 schools in the
country. (Note: In the Golf Digest ranking, Goble is listed as being affiliated with Rick
Smith/Treetops although he now teaches full-time at Kendall Academy.)

NGF: POSITIVE OUTLOOK FOR GOLF COURSE DEVELOPMENT
Golf course closures may have peaked in 2006 based on 2007 year-to-date figures, according
to the National Golf Foundation (NGF). After seeing net negative facility growth in 2006
(closures outnumbering openings), NGF expects openings/closings to return to slightly net
positive in 2007.
There have been 43 openings so far in 2007 (in 18-hole equivalents) of which 25.5 were
public and 17.5 private. Of the total, 72% were entirely new facilities. Given the number
of courses under construction that are projected to open in 2007, NGF estimates there will
be about 120 total openings in 2007, the same as last year's 119.5.
There are currently 291.5 18-hole equivalents under construction, of which 70% are slated
to be open to the public; 77% are new as opposed to additions to existing courses.

FASTEST ROUND OF GOLF
Boyne and News/Talk 760 WJR are again attempting to break the Guinness World Record for
the Fastest Round of Golf (FROG). This intense and exciting attempt will take place on
Sunday, July 22, 2007 from 9 AM -12 PM on The Alpine course at Boyne Mountain.
The event format requires golfers to be strategically placed on the course’s tee boxes,
along the fairways and on the greens. The timing begins once the opening tee-ball is
struck, with golfers in the fairway running to hit the ball as soon as it comes to rest.
As golfers on the green sink the putt, a player on the next hole immediately hits the next
The current record is 8 minutes, 47 seconds and was set at Bridlewood Golf Club in Flower
Mound, Texas. The 15th annual Tournament of Champions (TOC) begins July 23 at Boyne
Mountain and numerous professional players have already signed up to be a part of this
challenge. A minimum of three attempts will be made within the allotted three hour time
period. Hopes are high that together - BOYNE, WJR and Michigan golfers will generate
additional exposure for the state’s incredible courses and make Boyne Mountain home of the
world’s Fastest Round of Golf!
BOYNE and WJR are seeking golfers to participate in this year’s event; interested parties
can contact Dan Turcott at 231.439.4016 or register online. For more information, please
