U.S. OPEN 2020 -- Winged Foot -- Mamaroneck, NY

SPECIAL MEMORIES: Best Putting Day Of My Life!

The storied history of Winged Foot dates back to 1929 with Bobby Jones winning the U.S. OPEN!


I also find the place quite special because in the Spring of 1972, when I was a Faculty 

Member at Columbia University, Teachers College,  I had the privilege of playing both

East & West Courses with Mr. Dick Metz, a distinguished NY Pro. 


It was a wonderful day of golf and at the 19th Hole Dick mentioned that I did not 

"3-Putt" all day! -- I couldn't believe it and checked both Score Cards. -- Sure Enough "NO 3-PUTTS!" -- Dick said that he never heard or ever witnessed this at Winged Foot.


I thanked him for noting this and gave my assurance he would never see performance

like this from me, "EVER AGAIN!" -- In short, ...The Greens were Winged Foot "GREAT" and I had the very best putting day of my life!  


It is going to be a wonderful year thinking of the U.S OPEN coming back to Winged Foot. 


-- "GREAT MEMORIES" Of A Very Special Day!
