USGA's Davis: LPGA "Very Excited" About Pinehurst As Open Host
Published June 11, 2014
Davis said there “isn’t really a difference” in how the USGA will prepare for the women’s tournament compared to the men’s event. Davis: “This sounds swell on paper, but trying to actually execute it perfectly – I can almost guarantee you we won’t do that.” But he added, “We’re excited about what this can do. In a lot of ways, this next week is going to be about showcasing women’s golf.”
Meanwhile, on the heels of the organization’s “While We’re Young” pace-of-play initiative last year, USGA President Tom O’Toole announced an American Express-sponsored “Play 9” campaign which encourages golfers to play just nine holes instead of the 18. O’Toole said the campaign, featuring golfer Rickie Fowler, will debut Saturday during NBC’s telecast.
