Prescott Hires A Superintendent
Following on the heels of the hiring of their new General Manager, Steve Martineau, the Prescott Golf Club has announced the addition of Warren Greenwell to their team as Superintendent.
Warren comes highly recommended by several well known and respected superintendents in the area,” said Club President Nancy Mierau on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Coming to us with Assistant Superintendent experience at both Camelot and Pine View Golf Courses, Warren has proven managerial successes coupled with his extensive knowledge of irrigation systems, course maintenance expertise, mechanical skills and people skills which are exceptional.”
Greenwell will begin his role on March 1, 2021.
Zhu Continues To Shine Down South
Team Canada National Junior Squad member Emily Zhu continues her recent string of fine play. The 16 year-old from Richmond Hill, Ontario recently earned a third place finish at an American Junior Golf Association event in Florida. Fittingly, it is tournament played in the name of Sean Foley, the PGA TOUR coach who grew up in Ontario.
After playing just ten events in 2020, Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ontario begins her 2021 LPGA campaign this week in Orlando. The 9-time LPGA Tour winner will be the only Canadian in the winners-only Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. The pro-celebrity event will see her starting the week alongside baseball star Josh Donaldson (whom she has played with before in this event), and NFL quarterback Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings.
Tiger Out Again
15-time major championship winner will be on the sidelines for a little while to start 2021. It was announced on Tuesday night that Woods recently (reportedly December 22rd) underwent a medical procedure on his back to remove a disc fragment. It’s been reported (via Rory McIlroy) that Tiger is already back hitting golf balls, but will not be ready to play at PGA TOUR events in San Diego or the Los Angeles-area, as expected.
