Barney Adams is on a campaign to move up the tees in golf, so people can have more fun and play quicker. How does he get courses to do this, and men to check their egos at the course and stop playing from the blues/whites.
“Red and white tees are poison,” Adams said. “There’s so much baggage there. You know who’s compalined to me the most? Women. They say, `it’s insulting you would move us up there.’ ”
Dustin Johnson will try to put last year’s 54-hole lead and the ensuing debacle behind him when he tees it up at the U.S. Open here at Congressional tomorrow. Find out if he’s over last year’s collapse.
Brian Locke (LMU) has never played a PGA Tour event, but he’s making his debut at the U.S. Open at Congressional. Not a bad start for Locke, who was born in Torrance and has played as a member at Woodland Hills CC.
“It’s been great,” Locke said. “I’ve been signing autographs.”
Asked if fans knew who he was, Locke said: “No, not really, but they’re asking.”
