Turning 65 earlier this year opened a new chapter for Howie Knodt in competitive golf as he resumed playing and quickly returned to a familiar place – the trophy presentation ceremony.
Knodt, a PerryGolf Customer Relations Representative, won the Southern California Golf Association Super Senior Championship last month, firing 68-72-140 at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa for a three-shot victory.
Despite a distinguished amateur record, the San Diego resident played a limited tournament schedule in recent years. Becoming eligible for the Super Senior division, however, motivated him to practice. He delivered, withstanding the final round pressure of leading the tournament and holding off two-time defending champion Kemp Richardson.
For the first time in 25 years, Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club shall play host to The Senior Open when the Championship returns to England in 2019.
Is it the courses or the horses?
What’s to like about a golf trip to the British Isles? Good choice if you say it’s the courses. We can recommend 80 – 90 – 100 clubs in Scotland, Ireland England and Wales each well worth a tee time. This abundance promises a quality golf experience with a range of pricing because you can confidently mix the more famous clubs with the less famous in countless combinations.
If it’s your horses, even better. Who’s not going to have the time of their lives over here playing links golf with friends and family?
One of the most entertaining PerryGolf experiences imaginable is to combine your golf schedule with attendance to the British Open. Better still, all four rounds will be played on Open venues each comfortably established on GOLF Magazine’s World 100; The Ailsa Course at Turnberry (18), Royal Troon (48), Royal Birkdale (30) and Royal Lytham & St Annes (57). The chance to see the world’s best try their hand at the bump, the run, the heather and the gorse is unique, occasionally even therapeutic! Our tour treats you to the drama at its peak over the weekend at the 2014 Open venue, Royal Liverpool, the site where Bobby Jones claimed the third leg of golf’s original Grand Slam in 1930.
