The Buzz about Payne Stewart Golf Club is growing!

At the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida last month, I had the opportunity to see and hear first-hand the Golf Industry's knowledge of our Payne Stewart Golf Club project.

A meeting with the PGA President Brian Whitcomb stunned me with his exuberance and our anticipated involvement with the Ryder Cup and his respect for Payne and his family. He is very aware of our Golf Course and will be visiting in the future. This is the most prestigious mover and shaker in the Golf Industry, and his warmth and regard for the Payne Stewart Golf Club's unique concept, honoring the life and legacy of Payne was certainly a highlight and encouraging moment of the week. He wants to bring Payne's Spirit to the Ryder Cup Team and is anticipating a stirring victory for the United States Team.

The PSGC is also on the radar of the National Golf Media. I was stopped numerous times by people noticing my prominently logoed apparel and they all wanted to know when they can play the course. Golf Digest raters will be visiting throughout the remainder of 2008 to rate the course for our already nominated Best Course of 2009 designation. Bradley Klein from GOLFWEEK is interested in a visit in the fall. I was honored to be selected for a TOP PGA Professional panel on the PGA stage before a few thousand attendees. Hosted by the Golf Channel, this cracker barrel session discussed trends and merchandising techniques and was followed by audience questions.

The Clubhouse is beautiful and is on schedule for May completion. The Golf Course continues to take shape and is fitting comfortably into the beautiful property of Branson Hills. The challenging green complexes and rolling approaches will be a golfer's dream with many interesting shots from around the green being created. I am anxious to teach and practice the vital shots that will be needed. I am excited to hear the word, "FORE" as soon as possible. You are invited to visit and ask the Guard at the Main Gate for directions to view the progress.

Membership offerings are being well received and I encourage you to contact me regarding being involved in the Payne Stewart Golf Club. Visit our website, www.paynestewartgolfclub.com for an overview of Membership opportunities.

On a personal note, I fortunately made a Hole-In-One on January 12th at Bill and Payne Stewart Golf Course in Springfield. The 195 yard, 4 iron never left the flagstick and was witnessed and financed by Shawn Freeman and Brad Heavin, my fellow PGA Professional brothers and my best friend Charlie Fuhr. I continue to be blessed serendipitously by my angel, Payne. The Ace was the first of 2008 in Springfield. And yes, it was cold!
