Just a reminder, the entry deadline for the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is April 30.
The Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is free to enter, and open to boys and girls ages 7-15, who will compete in four age categories.
The event is supported by the Masters Tournament Foundation, The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association. The finalists in the various age groups will compete in the national finals next April at Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters.
May is typically the month when the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort typically punches its greens and performs routine maintenance on its golf courses. Not this year, though – the resort is hosting the NCAA men’s and women’s Division III national championships, and the courses will remain in top shape throughout the month.
The college kids aren't the only ones who can take advantage of the extra-long prime season at Sandestin. The resort is offering a Spring Swing package to lure golfers – no matter their collegiate loyalty.
Alan Dunbar of Northern Ireland has turned professional and plans to begin the new phase of his career in Europe.

Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, Calif., has begun an extensive makeover under the direction of the Robert Trent Jones II architectural firm. Jones designed the course – perhaps best known as part of the rotation for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1991-2009 – almost 30 years ago.
Jones is working closely with the Northern California Golf Association, which owns the course, to bring it up to modern standards, improve its playability and help it conserve water.
One reason golfers miss putts is because they can't keep their putter completely steady and on line throughout their stroke. One way TaylorMade is trying to solve that problem is by counterbalancing – adding weight to the grip end to counter the weight of the clubhead.
