Arnold Palmer Cup Statement on COVID-19
  The Arnold Palmer Cup is scheduled for July 3-5 at Lahinch Golf Club. With the matches over three months away, the Arnold Palmer Cup will monitor the coronavirus pandemic, seeking input from official health organizations in Ireland (the host country) and the rest of the world (given the international field participating in the event). Player and coach health and safety are of paramount concern. Any competition held up to and including Thursday, March 12 will be considered for selection purposes. Additionally, the Arnold Palmer Cup will contact all selected participants, and any player currently under consideration, to answer questions regarding the event, and will make a further announcement regarding the status of hosting the event at an appropriate time.
Arnold Palmer Cup Trio Set to Tee It Up at The Players Championship
Brayden Conover Ron Balicki Scholarship Intern The stars of tomorrow are making waves today. Arnold Palmer Cup alums Viktor Hovland, Collin Morikawa, and Matthew Wolff are set to play the first two rounds of The Players Championship Thursday and Friday. All three making their Players Championship debut, the trio has been on an absolute tear on the PGA TOUR since their 2018 Arnold Palmer Cup. Hovland made two APC appearances, a member of the last European Team in 2017 and a member of the inaugural International Team in 2018. Many firsts have been attributed to Hovland becoming the first Norwegian player to win the U.S. Amateur (2018) earning him invitations to the 2019 Masters, The Open Championship, and U.S. Open. His T-32 (-3) finish at The Masters gave him a one stroke edge over fellow 2018 International Teammate Alvaro Ortiz to earn the Silver Cup as the low amateur. In the U.S. Open, Hovland once again earned low amateur honors with a T-12 (-4) finish. The 280 total beat Jack Nicklaus’ low-am record of 282 that stood since 1960. Hovland also became the first player to earn both The Masters and U.S. low-am honors since fellow APC alum, Matt Kuchar (1997-98). Turning pro following the U.S. Open, Hovland secured his TOUR card after finishing seventh in the Korn Ferry Tour finals. It did not take long for ‘Twitter-less Viktor’ to make noise on the TOUR with his first career win coming at the Puerto Rico Open on Feb. 23 with a total of 268 (-20) to win by a stroke. Making two appearances for Team USA in the APC (2017-18), Morikawa turned pro at the 2019 RBC Canadian Open where he posted a T-14 finish in his TOUR debut. Morikawa picked up his first TOUR win just eight weeks later at the Barracuda Championship, a stableford event, by three points. Morikawa is coming off a T-9 at last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Wolff, a 2018 Team USA member has made TOUR fans gawk and mimic his unorthodox swing. A collegiate teammate of Hovland at Oklahoma State, Wolff turned pro in June of 2019 at the Travelers Championship and wasted little time winning his first TOUR event just two weeks later at the 3M Open. Wolff posted a photo of Morikawa and himself on Instagram in anticipation of their Thursday and Friday grouping to promote that the duo will be teaming up together at the Zurich Classic April 23-26. The group is set to tee off at 1:18 p.m. EST on Thursday and 8:13 a.m. EST on Friday. For more information on how to watch, click here.
Jamie Howell of Eastern Florida State Recipient of Labron Harris Sr. Award
NORMAN, Okla – Jamie Howell, Head Men’s Golf Coast at Eastern Florida State College and a member of the North Florida PGA section was named winner of the Labron Harris Sr. Award presented by the Golf Coaches Association of America in cooperation with The PGA of America. PGA of America Senior Director, Career Services Scott Kmiec presented the award at the GCAA National Convention. The Harris Award is presented to the college or high school coach and Class A PGA Professional whose support of the game through teaching, coaching and involvement in the community has helped ensure the continued growth of the game of golf and who represents the finest qualities the game has to offer. “My fellow coaches refer to me as “old school”. I take that as a compliment as I learned the profession from the “old school” and am proud to share that with today’s college players and all I come in contact within the game of golf,” said Howell. “Labron Harris Sr. blazed a trail in the world of collegiate golf few could ever hope to achieve. To be mentioned in the same breath as Labron Harris Sr. is humbling to say the least. I am proud to carry on the tradition he embodied in the PGA and the collegiate golf world.” Howell is in his 18th season with the Titans. In that time, Howell has totaled 48 tournament wins and 27 All-Americans, with three players winning NJCAA individual national titles. He was inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame in 2019 and has been named the Dave Williams National Coach of the Year in 2015 and was a finalist for the award in 2016. He has been the District Coach of the Year eight times in his career. The Titans have reached the NJCAA National Tournament in all 17 of Howell's seasons finishing as high second place, and third place twice. His 2006/2007 team was the Florida Community College Activities Association Male Academic team of the year for the state of Florida. Howell also played professionally in the PGA European Tour from 1988-1990. Howell follows in the footsteps of past Labron Harris Award recipients Jay Hardwick (Virginia Tech/Middle Atlantic PGA Section), Devon Brouse (Purdue/Indiana PGA Section), the late Rod Myers (Duke/Carolina PGA Section), Herb Page (Kent State/Northern Ohio PGA Section), Jim Brown (Ohio State/Southern Ohio PGA Section), Pat Owen (U.S. Naval Academy/Middle Atlantic PGA Section), Rick Pohle (Williams College/Northeastern New York PGA Section), John Bermel (Northern Iowa/Iowa PGA Section), Pat Goss (Northwestern/Illinois PGA Section), Mike Small (Illinois/Illinois PGA Section), Mike Mayer (Indiana/Indiana PGA Section), Puggy Blackmon (South Carolina/Carolinas PGA Section), Harry Hammond (West Chester/Philadelphia PGA Section), Scott Cartwright (Cal Poly/Southern California PGA Section), and Jerry Haas (Wake Forest/Carolinas PGA Section). -GCAA-
Jerry Rich Recognized with GCAA Lifetime Achievement Award
NORMAN, Okla – Jerry Rich, founder and architect of Rich Harvest Farms and founder of the Kids Golf Foundation of Illinois, has been selected as the eighth Lifetime Achievement honoree by the GCAA. Rich will officially be recognized at the GCAA Hall of Fame Reception and Awards Banquet on Monday December 9th, in Las Vegas. Past GCAA Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients include Karsten Solheim, Byron Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Friends of Golf (FOG), Jim Awtrey, and Jim Nantz. Rich is the architect and owner of Rich Harvest Farms, a golf course that is consistently ranked in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.” Rich graduated from Northern Illinois University in 1961 with a degree in mathematics and earth science. After graduation, he went to work at Rich Inc., his father’s company. In the 1970s, he created the way Wall Street trading is still done today with the development of the integrated trading terminal. “It is an honor and a privilege to be put in the same category as the likes of [past award winners] Arnold Palmer and Karsten Solheim, but I’m just a man who loves collegiate golf,” said Rich. “It all started with supporting the golf teams at my alma mater, Northern Illinois University. I share this Lifetime Achievement Award with them, as well as my staff who have championed my vision.” Rich is most proud of the Kids Golf Foundation of Illinois, a non-profit junior golf organization housed at Rich Harvest Farms, which he founded with lifelong friend Don Springer in 1998. Since its inception, the Foundation has introduced 250,000 kids to the sport of golf. Aside from the Kids Golf Foundation, Rich has hosted over 50 amateur, collegiate, and professional tournaments during the past 20 years, including the 2009 Solheim Cup, the 2015 Palmer Cup, and the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Golf Championships. Rich Harvest Farms will also become the first course to host the Arnold Palmer Cup twice, as the event will be held at RHF in 2021. -GCAA-
Trio Set for 2019 GCAA Hall of Fame Inductions
NORMAN, Okla. — The GCAA will induct two coaches and another for contributions – Dan Rogas of Lamar University who will be honored posthumously, Tommy Snell of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, and Prominent Rules Official Bob Hooper into its 2019 Hall of Fame Class. The trio will be officially inducted at the GCAA Hall of Fame Reception and Awards Banquet Monday December 9th in Las Vegas. A coach for more than 30 years, Rogas began his coaching career with Lamar’s football program, where he served on staff from 1955-1971. In 1963, he also accepted the role of head golf coach, and began the process of building a powerhouse. In his first season on the links, Rogas led his squad to a Lone Star Conference title. The following year, the Cardinals moved into the Southland Conference and began a run of dominance that has not been equaled since. The Red and White never lost an SLC title from 1964 – 1973 – the Cards won more titles during that 10-year stretch than any other SLC school has won in its history. Rogas wrapped up his career being named Southland Conference Coach of the Year in 1981. That season marked the second time in his career that he received the league's individual honor, and the 12th time he guided Big Red to a conference title. Under Rogas' direction, the Cardinals won two Division II national titles reaching the pinnacle in 1967 and 1968. During that dominant stretch, Rogas was twice named the College Division National Coach of the Year. Tommy Snell has built a golf dynasty at Mississippi Gulf Coast, with his program coming off its ninth consecutive NJCAA Region 23 Championship and third straight top-four finish at the NJCAA Tournament. He has sent more than 40 golfers to four-year schools. Snell has been at Perkinston since 2000, and he was inducted into the NJCAA Men’s Golf Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2015. His teams have also won seven MACJC championships and been runners-up six times, and he was the Mississippi Association of Coaches Community College Coach of the Year. Gulf Coast has sent golfers to the national tournament every year since 2002, and Snell was named Golf Pride Grips Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2018. Snell is very active on the national golf scene as a United States Golf Association rules official and committeeman. He is a frequent rules official at NCAA championships and is on the NCAA Division I national championship committee. It allows him to develop contacts for his far-reaching network of college coaches that enables Gulf Coast to send its golfers to the next level. Snell is on the Golf Coaches Association of America National Advisory Board, and he’s a weekly columnist for the Sun Herald. He was a U.S Open qualifying medalist in 1980 and winner of several amateur and professional tournaments. The 2005 winner of the Joe Dey Award, which recognizes an individual’s meritorious service to the game of golf as a volunteer, Hooper has had a long and illustrious career in the game. Hooper’s interest in the Rules of Golf came about after losing the Newark (Del.) Country Club men’s club championship because he didn’t know a Rule that would have won him the title. That led Hooper to attend USGA workshops on the games Rules and his success caught the attention of officials within the organization. A retired dentist, Hooper worked the inaugural U.S. Mid-Amateur in 1981 and then the 1982 U.S. Open and U.S. Senior Open. He has worked as a Rules official at multiple Open’s since. He has also done 22 Senior Opens, along with several U.S. Amateurs, and Arnold Palmer Cup’s. ###
