Of their seventeen amateur players playing in this event. That's astounding now fourteen of them qualified. Three. Had to prior. Amateur cook one area amateur tournaments worldwide and and qualified.

From their -- he's he's got multiple home course advantage as anybody and smaller and run Korea so Adam you have home court advantage there. It will be fun and will be although Bruno Isaacs going up next week. You know if you get in there that will be the interesting thing is is probably pull off some of logistics and will be sued here's some variants do. It's it's the bottleneck. But hopefully it'll look great on TV and fox sports for the first time. Televised in two in the broadcast major golf event so loud that. A lot of new things for the US open this week they'll be a lot of opinions. Kemba. Adam. A week from Monday you bet but we got a lot of golf going on this week so let's get right to it let's go inside the ropes. It's time for an insider's look at the leaderboard it's the latest on all two hours plus local golf events and gulf news this is inside the ropes part of golf in the northwest broad view on the stand by Bartlett and fears leveraged and. Or just get in the year these two girl nobody who's anybody is playing and that all the major Europeans are over here. And it's lame I don't even know where their plan I thought it was. Well I don't know better in Sweden last week Al can. So who knows where than I did read very quickly. Actually looked at some on the at dinner while it was the Russian who. Hope I love yes seventeen on his first pole now Pamela. I'm at went through psychology yeah Alex then. Analyst on dia Lotta Lotta those jokes in the last couple days yeah I bet they IB. There are because. This poor guy would latest. Date that in ninety. The seventeen on the first we shut all the brunt of that 73 on the other seventeen holes so not. Completely. You know Ottawa but yet to put in waters six times in a reel him in couple. It puts it out of stubbornness that was ages I I doubt I don't know I don't analyst if that was the house are wary couldn't there was a drop Sony had to play it. From I don't know. And what the exact. On and that's really tough I am that your makers that ground the other no doubt that would have been in touch it's. The the Web.Com tour is just outside a Cleveland in the Russ DeLeon championship Peter mom oddities try and suit. Re takeover. The lead in the money list he lost at the last couple weeks the patent is eerie but Peter mum on the there eleven under par you've got. A patent is Syria at nine under dostum parade ten under. Tyler Aldridge the pride of Boise State from Boise played Boise State he won last week and are right back in it at eight under par so. Tied with Michael Kim and some others so we we keep an eye on that it's not too long. Before everybody will be here at Kerr will be at pumpkin ridge at the end of August for the cope with Portland opened the I am really. Cited FOIA and and that's the issue of every member for for a listeners is that if if you got a son daughter grandson granddaughter on a golf team and you need to raise some money if that. Wind go open yeah that it cost for cheered that's a wonderful. Concept and a 100% of the money that. From the tickets yet at a tourist I was energetic you know goes and he though program so you best really a no brainer and I as. People have to realize that this is a great opportunity to raise money for your. For your golf programs and a lot of high schools and I really struggling some of them don't have enough money to have a CT marriage and the environment in this is not to do it. They also need some volunteers. As well as the standard fare so that's a great job for the kids themselves and I it's the big scoring placards with each group. The golfer's trio while I usually in the Brownsville both uncle smaller sum for a men they have a great time being inside the rupture with seen what it's like. At a at a PGA tour and a very exciting to be inside the ropes Champions Tour at the constellation senior players championship Bernhard longer who has not won. On the Champions Tour this year that is. Rarely the case but he's got a four shot lead at twelve under par over Russ Cochran in minutes expect the Jesper Parnevik Steve Pate and Lee Jansen. Bernhard longer try to become just the second player ever to win back to back players senior players championships Arnold Palmer the only one to do that 8485. You get it back it says it needed to write home work and now Condon packets just for you. It's it really last year credibility. This. Atlanta has been. Struggling with some injuries and age 57 bullet injuries. Possibly at any amazing he he doesn't have as many as a lot of the guys doesn't. You know he's one of the fittest guys. On tour when you see him. And so he'll look go to run away with this he has the ability it is one of those front runners where if he keeps the potter hi. He can bury this thing on Saturday but they have some really good round commend the agents and 62 every. Brad Faxon a sixty well there's some good scores dramatically. It's to it's that time a year too with the weather finally were done with these thunderstorms and hail storms and balked at the water's so. Conditions. Warm greens can get fast you can get some roll out of the fairway. Come in with wedges and sand in Cleveland claim. Yet know the Web.Com tour's indictment they're open gather up in mass. The ladies are in New York. Four. Their second major of the year. It used to be BO PGA. Championship and now it's the women's PGA championship they've combine forces with the PGA. Good for the ladies because the purse got bumped up significantly perhaps million dollar purse they're playing for. Say Young Kim your leader at eight under par but that it's in the park with separate third consecutive win in this major she's tied with Corey web at seven under. She's in Paterson who won last week. Tied with Brooke Anderson at six under par Stacy Lewis at five under par Alexi Thompson foreigners so. Pretty star studded leaderboard there one name we haven't seen much though it's missed show we of late and then there's the specific reason for that. You know there is. Again we talk about injuries with the players. Tiger Woods in his injuries that are. With his knee Michelle Wie with the backing these young players they come out. So early in their careers and a lot of repetitive motion. Can produce injuries. And she's only 2525. But and a pro for what 1011 years. But it's just that constant grinding and your body produces injury. And she's here she is you would expect from an older player let Bernard longer. But from the younger players were always surprise you there's there are injuries. And sure enough. She's been struggling they've. Worked on changing her swing. To try and accommodate the her bed bath. And so what's their what are sparkly David Leadbetter and he's been longtime teacher effort that they've been narrowing her stance. Two wider stance there's a couple of things that can happen you start sliding into the ball. And and you don't turn quite as much in in order to turn you really have to tour Q back. With a narrow stance a little easier to turn. So if you're listening in got a bad back to your toes out here you stance a little bit. And try to take a little easier swing. And that of course the PGA tour in Memphis the FedEx saint Jude classic in knots as many big names that you would expect. US open next week's a lot of guys prep and plus. It's on the West Coast so it's not a quick jaunt from Memphis Brooks kept gay teacher leader at nine under par. Austin cook won back Stephen walker at seven under. Russell knocks amongst those at six under Ben Crane was the defending champion he got body had seven birdies in nine holes get it to seven under in his first round but then. Some bogeys brought him back in an even par round yesterday's four under par. Hasn't won since he won their last year east outside the top 125 on the FedEx Cup points list so he could use a good performance. And placing as well but we there's some low scores from early guys this morning so there's the potential there if they get they get the plotters Roland some technical loaded it. Yet they really excited this is interesting that. These off Aaron. Providing. Great opportunity for players to move up into the top fifty. Which means a lot to them on the other means a lot of major events. If they get into it but an opportunity for young players. To begin to build some credibility and some traction on the on the to build up their money. So we're seeing them. Some of the Web.Com. Players who have. Now has some exemptions on tour. And sponsor's exemptions or taking advantage yeah. And who's the accurate cook yeah yeah he's one of those that has a sponsor's exemption he wants to make an impression. And walk away with some cash. In an opportunity to play more tournaments that hold on Monday qualifier last yes you got a sponsor's exemption so there's kind of a process security it and they. Get into these events in the eighth off. We tournaments or. You know nick though the regular ones. A they really provide an opportunity for. We'll be a fun week to watch all the long but. Were just get started here once again we're live at black B ranch on the deck here at the glaze meadow course. And the director golfer black Butte ranch Jeff folk gonna join us next. Here live from black people just get started with golf in the northwest on ESPN's Sports Radio Kennedy defeated. Presented by Bob Glen Sears Bieber to India this is also in the northwest on ESPN's Sports Radio Jenny you vote for them. Just like our back here live on the deck. At the delays meadow course here at black Butte ranch one of the two courses of course big meadow. You see that one just as you enter kind of near the lodge and then. Plays meadows. Towards the back here but Jeff Foote director of golf and black you rent join and us. Always always glad to be back yeah it's nice having both back and you'd play golf after after the show to play a little golf had a little dinner at their Roberts pub last night up by big meadow in. So yet just limited up then you can go to black Butte ranch and dot com you can find out all about it but will talk some golf here in the courses with Jeff. We were here. But when the debut happen at that the big redevelopment the redesign here. A lot of money a lot of time went into it here escalates medal but three years later cut talk about how course. You know settles then obviously there's there's you know the big redesigned sort of bit the view look it changes but for a golf course. That through such a big redesigned how was it different now than it was when it went first reopen. Well I you know I think it softened up a lot I mean the ball's holding on the screen a little bit more for everybody knows when you be built dreams from scratch. The greens don't have to catch on so you know they're firm in the council lot now people are real holes some shots. We verified of now twice. You know the fairways there are getting much more grass on them because we actually replanted all the grass on the golf course. So what what's that you've been in the fairways that stuff in the golf courses herbal that. Phenomenal shape probably some of the best shape I've said. You know I've been there fourteen years in bad shape but for seniors we Wear. Fair I was worthy. A fifteen year. Pro am event. Two we had a three day in their last day was here and my team. Really got an opportunity to see all the trees on the golf course and some of the houses and things and I. It was six. He's guys and it's so sideways. Lilly had a great time and that golf course wasn't phenomenal shape. That I remember the first hole when we first came out here and you just opened up the first hole he hit the center of the green it was over the back. And actually spun one back so I. What you're saying is so true that if the golf course it takes time to mature and I don't think people realize that that golf courses once their first bill. It you have to build up some sand base and some facts in them to hold. Voted that as you said the golf course in great shape. I think you know I think two's the whole idea was to re model place meadow is. You'll a lot of people were playing big battle that may be going off property for the second round now work keep that a lot of people on property. They wanna play two or three times just here on properties today which that was our whole goal. People's. You know favorites still has big battle on some of the people now some people place medals their favorite. And is such a beautiful setting having plays medal we opened it up so much I mean we took out 3500 trees I mean. It is still very treat ya but we took out 3500 trees and made it not so claustrophobic. Errant. And I think we made up to the greens are double in size John did a great job you know make in the greens. Little more resort friendly eaten it and solve. You know where your people love this golf course still on the whole orders would be the first one it and the homeowners play ball. Wolf golf courses and they love old golf courses now and that they didn't love the old glazed battle but it was so quirky that they had to know. You know the first hole wasn't five iron eight iron out wedge and get to know the car units of it it was still pretty good golf course. But I think we opened it up where people and it's a little more resort friendly he installs a challenge to it though it can have some bite. Kosher can just vote director of golf spirit of black Butte ranch and of course with a mild mild winter this year you guys started playing around that normally once. The snow comes and you just gotta gotta wait and hope that doesn't. Freeze to market to cold but what's how is it different being and he told me sort of playgrounds in February. Yep February 14 we open this year and and I bitter fourteen years and I've only open Watson march so we opened. A month and a half early you know that the weather was nice so you know the golf course is really got better shape a month and half early we got to see what. What a normal season you know what that she's could be if we get good weather rot off the baton. And you know you grout that winter damage just you know beard and under snow and freezing weather for 45 months takes it all on the grass yet so. We're able that take you know have that grass heels so much quicker in and really up and going by April 1 we are raging. Willie had great weather and on the other side of mountain through and it all it means is that. We're getting more people playing which is fantastic. And all the golf pros would be burned out by the end of July and August. The end of July for a lot of I improved I Eilat and give it were lessons this year to short period of time just as everybody's excited about client. Though talk. You know referring to lessons and things you've got some programs going here that you want to hear whether. I they we always I mean the ridge road been known for its golf schools it's it's junior programs works I did this year like junior program. We're gonna started in junior program in our recreation. It's called snag golf where we introduce. You know the three day. Eight year olds in to golf with little bigger had bigger ball. You know to get some success with that in that makes wanna go on when you get to that he use old start doing. Golfers take off back camps we have we have a golf junior camp every every week here all the way through. The end of August sell you know we have so much junior's stuff and I think. Yet out there and it's so much fun to see kids love it. You know I think that's what all of golf professionals in it you know girl. I mean we we all got to commit this new generation hasn't obviously we miss the generation. That's thirty to 45 we did you know they're not playing as much as we used to play. And now. We gotta take this I've got three girls I'm teaching right now I teach him. Q3 times a week enough they've played golf two or three times we and they can't wait to get here and there there all three over twelve years old. I love those girls and they're so excited. And it that just feels like be at a golf pro analogous. And and for those our listeners who aren't familiar with the terms snag is that. That particular company you can go online and look this is my grandson has been through a program that royal oaks with the snag. Equipment. And they've got this velcro suit that you can that a person can where I'm looking forward to seeing you in that little bit. I know that that's Terry Anderson. Very. Doll. I'd give it actually hit it velcro ball like. And at this makes it to very we're actually get a whole fleet and then during the winter. Oh hole we're gonna have that egg available in the woods elementary school and let the kid to -- program for a and if you see I am excited about it oh yeah I've got two kids get excited about golf and that's Okie. And the other thing Q is the atmosphere at that both the courses here and black you rants creates. Makes it. Acceptable on the courses for a younger players in and it's relaxed and you get some places where. You know they might not wanna see people out there who are developing in the game. Day and so that but that's a great thing here you you encourage families to come on you've urged the young players come out. And and be part of it there's tee boxes for all. Ranges of of ability and skill to do so that will help keep play moving so they don't have the plate from somewhere so far back that they haven't developed the scope or yet.

But you know they just you know even if I had a big commitment back in the day when I was out I still stuck waved play golf. Exactly nice thing is that what you're doing your track and there are children and when you attract their children. Those people will be back in the game that's what.

When we return it's time to ask the pros were gonna go up near chambers bay Larry gill who league is an agronomist with the US GA has been. Instrumental in helping set the course up for next week's US open will get a little more detail on just what to expect from chambers bay. Next week as we continue golf with a northwest live from black people rant here at central Oregon. But he is being Sports Radio putted there. It's for your game from award winning PGA instructor here a boost. I asked the pro golf in the northwest asked the probe was teed up on the stand by the Oregon golf association. In reaching lifestyles through. We'll find out more and OGA downward. Welcome back live from black you ran on the deck. But the delays and meadow course terrible news that Jason laggard here with the Tamil Tiger. Marketing director here what the range which is in the business of golf here a few minutes in college you know. They get some big projects going on and let's know how to take advantage of the great golf and and scenery and just the wonderful place that is like you but joining us right now. Very happy to have with that's agronomist for the west region of the US GA he's based in Gig Harbor. Has been instrumental in helping prepare chambers made a host the US open next week leery gill bullied good morning Larry how aria. Just fine thanks. We appreciate you join and us and it's kinda helping us understand a little bit more about the the science that goes in to. Natalie just creating a golf or course but getting it ready. Four to host the championship in the US open like chambers bay but there is give people little background as to kinda. What your specific roles or with the US GA and when you worked with the golf course of the parameters. That you wore assisting them. It to get the golf course ready for play. Yeah. I do with the US cheer for about 32 years and based on the top or in now to harvest past twenty years. And there's a lot of golf courses but this and a little bit special but tremendous Marla. And my job has been a work Mike Davis and a rush the agronomist economic steps US share. They're preparation this about seven or eight years now. Was very small dot inside the ropes on via US amateur in 2010. And now the US open and so going full force structure we're about it anyway. The players usually starting that there's a few players out here and I would sure want to exit this golf course you played it before. You won't believe what you achieved when you see it again if you've never played her ever prepared really well as she touched sure links golf. At its finest. Real quick anecdote this morning I was driving around and I caddie walked off the turtle game right at fourteen she says I just got left Ireland says this is. An Irish election right I agree it's very very lecture right now. So. Larry what are the challenges. For devolved to. Well in the selection process of a golf course. What is the US GA look for. In selecting courses and then. Along with. What kind of preparations. Do you have to make changes do you estimate to a golf coolers. Well the selection process is partially done by Mike Davis and a spectacle oust. I can give you kind of an outside a Puyallup it is that turn course has to be obviously challenging charmed chipped caliper. It generally and general earlier. Look for sites that have what the population base near par which this is it is one of those terriers. On any medication in the past it's been a private club but as you know. Starting at Bethpage black and open at Torrey car engine now the third one chambers spent distribute this book of course. I'll big golf course is very different doses. Way outside the box for the normally you're rushing champ Richard do you know there's a lot of firsts here and this course. It is a links course and that that really intrigued Mike Davis. Pop charts to show the other thing that Riddick rep Mike and the on this course Shanghai and and when you have sand based golf course especially one that's true links. Like this year's. That changes. Things just source source and herb you can get traction amongst rescue very easily. And that's hard to do on following you on some of the other grasses the knowledge rescue. Check it last year Pinehurst on Bermuda grand Sierra legal fast permanently damaged or crouched Bermuda grass you can handle. So. Yeah a long and advanced to should be a short. The shortest of the chambers there's a little different. And I know went might get an executive committee sought. After they uphold the amount up from the view. That got down on the golf course tickets in addition to championship site. Larry you truly is our guest an agronomist. Four at the US GA help and been preparing chambers bay. 01 of the things that we have heard is. With that links course a lot of com tour on installation elevation change especially with the greens. And I'm curious I know that piece of property on school university Puget Sound they know exactly that piece of property it is totally exposed out there. To the elements show. How do you go about preparing the greens. Need to be prepared in case the wind kicks in off that harbor. And off the sound so that you can continue play even if you've got big wins. Right that's a direct question to an end you you know the site. On that term gets the best site the world as a Turk guys got one tree. It is completely explode there are no trees. It is all based on land and during the hammered twenty Chan. We are caught by the way. It is it is true trust we've learned from that contract this this past evening we water a lot of water on this golf course you preparation. And that's achieved at this golf course is to have the moisture levels right. The that this staff here I'm led by Eric Johnson's the director of army Josh Lewis. They've really got this thing dialed in as spores on the moisture levels and that is that's very important. The other thing is the weather in what is constitutional court to great. And seventies. Statement this week in the eighties and then into the next week it's gonna be mostly high I'd get seventies. And then the wind factor. On what we learned from parameters we can only chickpeas greens to a certain speed and then they have a tendency to tweak up and Steve when we're in terms that and so we know what the maximum speed will be. I know that Mike has. Tension up beforehand and many different town folks. There are goal it's going to be allowed twelfth street. I don't that is believe it or not relatively slow for US open but it is because of the contours we don't want to lose great hole locations. And there are many. I don't like getting degrees too fast or firm. The firmness right now is softer. That we had for the Hamburg and we're we're trying to keep it there and make it extremely playable which still firming up you have to use the ground. Four for play. But we're keenly aware of the wind and these urology issues it is pretty good information already will be watched gimmick issues. And readjusting the golf course based on the weekend. Honestly as you move forward. So what kind of adjustments do you make tested the length of wholesaler. Or they'll be built harassment while in the polls are like two holes are hole locations could be tweaked a little bit of one layer and other I don't know which way to wind coming from. Our bets and maintaining armed to the cheaters are can be moved. If there's wind suddenly that it's coming out of the door one day in which switches to the shall. Or even how innocent to achieve market go down they're down. Seoul on the other there can be some real changes. Honestly but it just we really don't know until the wind also what is gonna do. So he'd that's done on a daily basis is that common for a US. GA event. Any site as wind it's it's very common. Candidates. Is it we meet. This standard practice regarding net three times at 230 in the afternoon. And it's that tree crime mystery the question this year. My Davis just fall. That's the main stay out. Period we all meet and talk about who waited based on what the plans are pretty mean what I endorse the next morning and it's. Really dialed in. Regard to the weather. The numbers that we're receiving as far as moisture. And then speed of the greens and the firms agreed to rip tools intestinal votes. Larry gillooly agronomist for the US GA our guest here so. I guess the question is for those of us here in the northwest. Who. Wanna see more of these types of events come back here how much is riding on how this comes off next week. Well that's not a great questions I know that the county. I'm certainly expressed a desire to have us come back and we have expressed in equal desire. Come back it has been as you Manuel now over the top. Our response. For both all the cheers ticket sales. On the merchandise tent opened two days ago and urges that just going great guns. All of it is in very positive from our standpoint niche. How how the championships moves forward we'll watch it but I know that's very.
