16 year old Richard Lee of Vancouver in US Open!

I just wanted to say a big “good luck” to young Richard Lee, a 16 year old from Vancouver who qualified for the US Open! Can you imagine shooting a 62 at 12 years of age???

Finally – equality bill set to curb golf club discrimination

It’s sometimes hard to believe we’re not living in the dark ages.
