Presidential Treatment


If it seems that the Blog has been a little slow of late – my apologies. Golf season is in full swing and a mutltitude of other projects and magazines have diverted my focus. In exchange I offer a olive branch of sorts – some special coverage to rival the Nike “Oven” photos from earlier this season.

On Monday (barring unforseen circumstances) I will have the great fortune of being part of a group that will tour the Royal Montreal Golf Club Blue Course as a preview to the 2007 President’s Cup that will be played September 27-30.

Even better is the fact that our tour guides to observe the changes made by Rees Jones to the venerable layout will be none other than the respective Captain’s during the upcoming matches. Yep, you heard right – Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player will personally be on hand to give their thoughts and strategies based on the layout as they get a firsthand look.

Check back next week to hear details and see photos of the Captains on their tour and images of the layout itself.

I will also add my own observances as the course gets it’s first crack at beating me up!!
