2019 WORLD CUP SET FOR FEBRUARY IN COSTA RICA

Taking the World Golf Teachers Cup outside the United States for the first time since 2013, the WGTF has announced that the 14th biennial competition will be held the week of February 11-15, 2019, at La Iguana Golf Club in Herradura, Costa Rica, a coastal resort town (www.GolfLaIguana.com). La Iguana is a Marriott property, and in addition, there are many other hotels nearby at all sorts of price points to meet any budget. Herradura is approximately a 90-minute drive from Costa Rica’s main airport in San Jose. Travel costs to and within Costa Rica are comparable to traveling within the United States.
USGTF member Alejandro Duque was instrumental in securing La Iguana for the tournament, and the WGTF would like to offer its heartfelt thanks.

This promises to be a memorable event, so clear your calendar and make your plans to join us in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica.

LITTLER WINS USGTF JUNIOR NATIONAL TITLE
The first annual USGTF Junior National Tournament this past August was a success. In the finals, three boys and three girls squared off at Beekman Golf Course in Hopewell, New York. Devin Littler won the boys division with a score of 78, while Kaylie Klemme shot an identical 78 to win the girls division. Afterwards, the two champions squared off in sudden-death for the overall championship.
Playing in front of a large gallery of family and friends, plus a number of Beekman members, the two champions matched pars and birdies, with each golfer -2 through the first four holes. On the fifth hole, Klemme’s birdie putt came up just short while Littler managed to sink his 15-footer for the win.
USGTF member Bob Myers organized the event and served as the tournament host. Plans for the 2019 championship will be announced in the coming months.

TOUR PLAYERS REED AND STONE DISCOVER A NEW GOLF PASSION
While in the quaint town of Gullane, Scotland, Patrick Reed and Brandon Stone wandered into the Jack White Golf Shop. Proprietor Boris Lietzow, a good friend of USGTF Southeast Region director Mike Stevens, sells golf memorabilia, including hickory golf clubs. It began when players participating in the Scottish Open were presented with a hickory challenge on one of the par-3s during a practice round.
Reed and Stone enjoyed it so much that it sent them scurrying to Boris’s shop to find out more. Reed was so impressed with Lietzow’s knowledge of the clubs and their history that he bought two sets, one for himself and another for his brother-in-law. Stone enjoyed it so much that after the first round of the Open Championship at Carnoustie, he drove down to St. Andrews and played the Old Course with his new set of hickories. It remains to be seen whether other tour fellows pick up the auld game, but one never knows.
