The Joplin Golf Foundation needs the best players within a 60 mile radius of Joplin to compete in the Joplin Area Championship. We had a great event last year held at Carthage and Briarbrook. 2016 Champions are Griffen Locke in the regular division and Glen Keeton in the Senior division. The Joplin Golf Foundation will crown two more Champions and put together the Joplin Horton Smith and Ky Laffoon teams that will take on Springfield over the weekend of August 19th and 20th. The matches will be in Springfield this year.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions.              Print Entry Form!

Thank you to everybody whom has signed up for the Red, White and Boom tomorrow. Another full field and several on the waiting list. Thank you for making it a special event. We have added some additional spots to the payback. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will get the tournament in on schedule! Our Eagle is going to keep that rain away. Have a great and safe Fourth of July!

 

Do you remember playing in junior golf tournaments growing up? I played in several. My favorite was always trying to qualify for the Optimist National Championship. The first tee was the most frightening experience ever at the time… Below is how I would prepare.

Day/Night before –

  1. Play 18 holes with my brother. He was the best competition around.
  2. Go to range and hit balls. You can really dial it in when you are trying to hit the range picker as it is moving. Difficult to work on alignment…just a feel thing.
  3. Wash clubs and grips trying to get all of the dirt and rust off so you could read Sam Snead Blue Ridge on them. Those leather grips were a doozy to keep nice. They had a big build up of spray stickum on them that would eventually turn rock hard.
  4. Clean shoes. Back then my golf shoes had that big flap thing over the laces. We need that style back!
  5. Look for better golf balls then the ones I had. I would go to Edgewood GC located right along the Red River in Fargo, ND.  My brother and I would try to find the best ProStaff balls we could.
  6. Get a good night sleep. I would grab the Austad’s catalog and circle all of the golf items I wanted. Wilson Tour Block woods and Titleist Tour Model irons. I would circle the Jones bag I had my eye on and the big fuzzy head covers. I would zonk out dreaming of the FJ shoes with the fancy toe designs and the extra steel spike in the middle of them.

The morning of the tournament.

  1. Eat breakfast with my brother while talking trash.
  2. Pray for a good pairing.
  3. Warm up at the range always finishing with a cut driver. The same shot the needed to be hit off the first tee.
  4. Shake hands with other 12 year olds in that awkward way of youth hand shakes.
  5. Butterflies…hoping not to top that first tee ball.

Crazy thing…. we would get off the first tee and start playing. All of the nervousness would go away. We would play and have a blast. We would talk about what time we were going to ride our bikes to the muni pool in the afternoon. We would talk about our baseball team and the game we had that night. All those nerves would go away pretty fast after that first tee ball.

I wonder if the kids who played in the 54th Annual Carthage Junior Golf Tournament had the same routine. Check out their awesome scores.

Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to our winners!

My birthday is July 4th. When I was growing up my family would tell me everybody was celebrating my birthday. Grandma Nell would have a Hamburger cake made for me. We would go to a park in Moorhead, Minnesota and celebrate my birthday with all of the other people I didn’t know who were celebrating my birthday. I was 4 years old and I believed it! Now I spend my birthday playing golf with friends at our Red, White and Boom Three Person Scramble. Fun, great prizes and payback and celebrate the fourth (my birthday…please buy me a mulligan). Check it though the links here and sign up!

Cleo in the bunnker.

Cleo bunker running again!

Cleo tried signing up again this year. I told her… once she could rake the bunkers on her own I would sign her up. I don’t have long to teach her that skill. Maybe I wont count her age in dog years. We might make it sometime then. Give her a couple more years.

Those that have played the Dick Mansfield Memorial Golf Tournament for several years affectionately call it “The Mansfield”. It has been a staple of our tournament schedule for sometime now. I look forward to it every year. I look forward to seeing people come out to the event that want to share the memory of Dick Mansfield. Several entries are friends or relatives whom keep coming back to share stories and events that happened with Dick Mansfield. Some have made it every year and some support it through sponsorships of the event.

Many of the teams are part of our Carthage Men’s Golf Association as well. This is part of the CMGA event schedule as well as open to the public. Dick was a CMGA Member all of the years I have been in Carthage as the PGA Professional. It is a key event for the CMGA as well.

The Mansfield is the main fundraiser for the Carthage High School Boys and Girls Golf Program. Coach Lowell Catron does a fantastic job building this program from the ground up. It starts with a solid youth program that teaches the basic fundamentals and skills needed to start in the game. Youth begin in the 3rd to 8th grade years. The earlier the better. Coach Catron works with these players from early on advising them on summer events and practice routines to keep them improving in the game. He has contact with them every summer. As long as they continue to come to the youth programs and opportunities presented he stays in touch with them. When they hit 8th grade they have the opportunity to start practicing with the team. Sometimes when they are in seventh grade if they show the desire. The summer before they are freshmen they become eligible to join the high school summer team camp. It is an intensive practice and play schedule to help the players improve their skills for the upcoming season. He has a great program for the boys and girls teams.

I consider him the best high school coach in Missouri. Probably the entire US. The Carthage golf community is proud of Coach Catron and the golf program he has for the boys and girls at Carthage High School. Its another reason “The Mansfield” has such good support. All of the proceeds for “The Mansfield” are used for the Carthage High School golf programs. The funds help with many things from equipment, team apparel and travel expenses to a few extra treats here and there after a tournament. There is nothing wrong with a few extras when the kids are working hard and the coach is working even harder.

“The Mansfield”…a great day to remember Dick Mansfield, a great fundraiser for the Carthage High School golf programs and all of the things you want in a Two Person Scramble…food, fun, refreshments and great prizes.

Take off Friday afternoon June 16th and join us at Carthage Golf Course for “The Mansfield”

Those youth completing all areas of instruction, etiquette and course safety will have supervised playing opportunities at these area courses. More information on dates and times will be provided during instruction sessions.

What a day.

I love the Family Scramble. It is a 2 person scramble. The only catch is that you have to be related. I have played with my son Derek, my daughter Allison and my dad.  I haven’t played with my son Adam yet. Adam is starting to turn into a golf nut. I need to get him down here from Detroit in the next couple of years and play. I never got  the chance to play with my mom before she passed away. My dad and I won once. I think my mom and I would have had a good chance. She knew how to get around the golf course! I have a feeling my wife Shannon will make her way back to golf in the next few years too. Then we will have to give it a try. I want to play with as many of my family members as possible. One problem…. the rest of them all live in Minnesota. What a good reason to come down to Carthage for a weekend.

If you have someone in your family that plays golf please invite them, sign up and come out to play this Saturday. I have seen every kind of combination possible in this event. I had a person who had just become engaged ask if they were eligible to play. I told them they could play but if they don’t make it all the way through the wedding day they will need to return any winnings! Ha…

One of these years I am taking my Chocolate Lab to play. Maybe a stretch of the rules. She would love it!

See you Saturday!
