I want to personally thank everyone participating in the inaugural United Stated Senior Long Drive Championship. I appreciate the support of everyone there, including the participants, spouses, friends and others. Our first year had 29 hitters in three divisions. The winners were Dixon Spear (Legends), Dan Fournier (Grand Champions), and John Cyrus (Super Senior.) Please join me in congratulating them on being the first USSLD Champions.

I am encouraged by the participation from 2014 in that 2015 will be even bigger and better. I would like to see the number of participants double and add a division for those 70 and over. We could be looking at a two day event with three divisions on Saturday and 2 divisions on Sunday. We will have a dinner for participants and their guest on Saturday evening. I'm also thinking about having a live band provide entertainment. I want to make the USSLD an event for participants and their guest.

Thank you for your support, and desire to compete in the USSLD.

No Ray my season is over after the us senior in decatur. the remax event priced me and others out of the market. Now it is time to work towards next years event in decatur.


I think this is a great move....wish other would join you.  Sam's event has a lot of potential to grow big.  It is all marketing.

All indicators indicate that the game of golf is dying.  A big drop in the number of players, golf courses, equipment sold, etc. over the past 10 years.

WHY??????

In my opinion there are many reasons.  Golf has run into the perfect storm.  Everything coming together at once to harm the popularity of the game.

I.  The game is hard.  It take hours of playing and practice time to become an average golfer.

2.  The game is expensive.  Golf Clubs, green fees, golf cart, membership dues etc.

3.  Young people have so many other activities to choose from and want instant gratification.  Not possible with golf.

4.  A round of golf takes to long.  About 6 hours when you consider going and coming from  the golf course.

I also believe the game of golf is dying because of the disparity of income in the US.  The rich are getting richer and the poor and middle class are seeing no or little income growth.  For golf to survive we need the youth of America and the masses playing the game.  If incomes or disposable income does not rise for the majority of Americans golf will continue to decline.  Simple arithmetic.

i think you hit it right on the nose.

McIlroy Has Silver Cup, Now He Wants Green Jacket
HOYLAKE, England — Jul 21, 2014, 5:29 AM ET

By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer



Rory McIlroy clutched the treasured piece of silverware, his reward for winning golf's oldest major championship.

Now he's got his eyes on a new jacket. Something in green, preferably.

With a grind-it-out performance on the final day of the British Open, McIlroy checked off another requirement for joining perhaps the most exclusive club in the game.

U.S. Open? He's won that. PGA Championship? Yep, got one of those too.

British Open? Took care of that on Sunday.

"I'm immensely proud of myself," McIlroy said, clutching the claret jug after a two-shot victory over Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. "To sit here at 25 years of age and win my third major championship and be three-quarters of the way to the career Grand Slam, I never dreamed of being at this point in my career so quickly."

All that's left is the Masters.

Get ready, Augusta National. This guy isn't very patient.

"I really don't have any doubt that he'll win there," Fowler said. "It's just a matter of time."

Unlike his first two major titles — eight-shot runaways at both the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship — McIlroy had to sweat this one out a bit. He didn't play his best, settling for a 1-over 71 that was his highest score of the week. He bogeyed two straight holes on the front side, giving his challengers a glimmer of hope. But it was never really in doubt, his lead never less than two shots.

"I always felt like I had that little bit of a cushion," McIlroy said.

All along, he had his eyes on a bigger prize.

The Grand Slam.

With his victory at Royal Liverpool, McIlroy became the third-youngest player — behind Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods — to win three of the four majors. Nicklaus, Woods, Ben Hogan, Gary Player and Gene Sarazen are the only players to capture all four, a feat that eluded such greats as Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead.

Indeed, a pretty exclusive club.

"I just want to be the best golfer that I can be," McIlroy said. "I know if I can do that, then trophies like this are within my capability. I'd love to win a lot more and I'm really looking forward to ... next April and trying to complete the career Grand Slam."

Nicklaus has long been impressed with McIlroy's potential.

The Golden Bear liked what he saw on Sunday, watching the finale on television.

"I like his swagger," Nicklaus said in a message posted on Facebook page. "I like the way he handles himself. I like his desire to be great. I like his desire to do the things he needs to do. I like that in a young guy. He's cocky in a nice way."

After ripping up the course the first three days, McIlroy didn't go with the driver as much and played some shots safely into the middle of the green, avoiding unnecessary risks when he had a lead to work with.

That strategy looked familiar to Nicklaus, who has won more major titles (18) than anyone.

"The other guys put the pressure on him with what they did," Nicklaus said. "Rory then did what he had to do. That is the measure of what you are doing. It is not to go out and shoot another 66. It's shooting what you have to shoot to win the golf tournament."
