The Players Camp (June 23-27) is a five-day, overnight program designed to give the high-level junior player an opportunity to develop their game in preparation for high-school/collegiate/tournament golf. Known as one of the top rated golf camps in America, learning sessions will include technical instruction in all parts of the game, course management and mapping, mental training, fitness education, nutrition habits, significant on-course playing time and college recruitment information.
I recently saw something wildly entertaining and amazing. It was a YouTube video of Dustin Johnson (The #1 golfer in the world, yes THAT Dustin Johnson) hitting a series of trick shots. Frankly, one does not have to be a golfer to find this video amazing. You may remember (if you are old, like me) the Nike commercial of Tiger Woods bouncing a ball off the face of his wedge a number of times, then popping the ball up and hitting it out of midair. Well, this video of DJ makes that Tiger video look elementary.
Brendan Valdes Shoots 61 on Sunday at Fairwinds GC
The leaderboard was packed after Round One. Justin Ross and Brendan Valdes sat tied for first after opening rounds of three under-par, 69. Not far behind was Sebastian Nachilly, Andrew Clark, and Frankie Harris all tied for third just one stroke off the lead. Sunday's weather presented the players with favorable playing conditions, which laid the groundwork for a fireworks display of scores. With solid scores of 70 and 69 respectively, Justin Ross and Andrew Clark claimed their shares of 2nd place. However, those great scores were still not enough to keep up with the eventual Champion, Brendan Valdes. Valdes was unconscious with just about every club in his bag on Sunday, leading to an incredible round of 61 (-11).
