PLAYER, NICKLAUS SOUND OFF ABOUT GOLF BALLS, GREEN BOOKS

When two of the most powerful figures in the game have their say, well, the whole world is entitled to listen. And when those figures are Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player – who have nine Green Jackets between them, then the US Masters seems the perfect time for the pair to have their say…and they did. Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus After hitting the traditional opening tee shots at the 2019 Masters, two of the greatest players the game has produced were quizzed about the state of the game. And they were unified in their suggestion that something needed to be done about the golf ball traveling just too far in these modern times, reducing the greatest courses, like Augusta […]

THE VOICE OF GOLF: GARY PLAYER ON PETER KESSLER

Gary Player answers questions from Golf.com Alan Shipnuck on Peter Kessler, also know as, The Voice of Golf.   What made Peter so good at his job? Firstly the voice. His deep, distinct and instantly recognizable voice. To me, he will always be the American “voice of golf.” Then of course his knowledge on the game which spans literally decades of the best players, tournaments and people who make our game so great. What are your favorite memories of being with Peter? The early days at the Golf Channel. Shooting my golf instructional video series was so much fun. More recently, just hanging out in Augusta during The Masters and talking all things golf together with my son Marc and […]

GARY PLAYER: TIGER’S WIN ONE FOR THE AGES

I have to say that Tiger Woods’ victory at The Masters was the greatest comeback in golf I have seen in my lifetime. It compares with Ben Hogan’s. For a player who had gone through back and knee operations, and considerable personal turmoil, it was a remarkable performance. It was an emotional moment for Tiger, and his mother and family, when he put on the Green Jacket for the fifth time and never has a Masters victory been so well deserved. I never thought he would win another Major but now I would not be at all surprised to see him add another Grand Slam event to his collection of 15 Majors. Maybe he won’t equal Jack Nicklaus’s record of […]

KIAWAH ISLAND’S COUGAR POINT

The Black Knight gives his thoughts on the recent renovation of Cougar Point at Kiawah Island.   What was your guiding principal when first designing Cougar Point? Kiawah Island itself is a paradise, especially for golfers. Creating the original Cougar Point design, many years ago, was a special opportunity for the Player Design team to showcase our environmentally sensitive approach considering the marshland, oaks and natural habitats of wildlife. Being a resort course, we also made sure the course was playable for all members and guests, but also challenging for the most skilled golfers.  The course, as it was first built, diverted from your original plans in some significant ways, but a later renovation (not this most current one) rendered it closer […]

GOLF IS A GAME WHERE IT’S SO EASY TO MAKE MISTAKES

We all make mistakes, and golf is a game where it’s so easy to make mistakes. These days it seems to me that people are more judgmental and critical than they used to be. One of the most talked about incidents of last year came when Phil Mickelson hurriedly followed his putt that was speeding on its way to rolling off the green and stopped the ball with his putter at the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills. He knew it was wrong to do that, but it was a spur of the moment reaction which he apologized for at the first opportunity. Mickelson is one of the most honest and accessible players on Tour and it was totally out of […]

LUSTICA BAY – Q&A WITH SVENSK GOLF

So, Lustica Bay Golf Course is completed? Lustica Bay is a golf course project that we at Player Design are very excited to see open. All courses come with their own unique challenges. Like any of our global projects, it’s a process. Currently, the course is under construction, and targeting the first 9-holes to open next year and the full 18-holes opening in 2021. The name of the other project in Montenegro? The Balkans is a beautiful part of the world. We would be delighted to start another project in Montenegro or the surrounding countries, but Lustica Bay is the one we are focusing on at the moment. Our design team is working on some feasibility studies for projects in Albania, Bosnia, […]
