Where can I find a list of tour pro's home courses?

Recommended Posts

I am hoping TST can help me out!

I am looking to find out what courses a number of PGA Tour members call home. If you know how I can most easily find this info, or if you know where any of them are members, please post in here!

Thanks a bunch.

I dunno if it's necessarily their "home course" but Charl Schwartzel, Lee Westwood, Raymond Floyd, Louis Oousty are based out of Old Palm CC in Palm Beach Gardens.

Rickie Fowler, Tiger, Dustin Johnson, and Keegan Bradley are at Medalist in Jupiter.

Ernies Els is Bears Club. I think Luke Donald and Rory are there too.

Obviously there are a lot of PGA Tour Pros who live in Palm Beach County.

Not sure about Orlando at this point, but Bubba Watson lives at Tiger's old house at Isleworth.

Poulter, McDowell, and Justin Rose are Lake Nona.

These guys are obviously all over the place though. Not 100% these are their "home courses," so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Speaking of home clubs, up to sometime in the 1960s, a touring pro would always be introduced as Joe Golfer, playing out of the [name of golf club] in [city, state].

Does anybody know what that was all about? A holdover from the days when touring pros were club pros in the off season? Do you know when that practice stopped?

While that's a related question, it's probably slightly OT for this thread.

One of my college buddies lives in Jupiter. I went down there to visit him a few weeks ago and played three rounds of golf.  If you've ever been there, you'll understand why--there is a championship golf course in pristine condition per ever square mile of land in that area.  North Palm, West Palm, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter--they could all be the best golf town in any state in the US.

Sorry SoCal folks--y'all have the weather, but you can't touch the number and quality of courses in that area.

Stenson is Lake Nona too, as is Annika Sorenstam.

Don't want to get off topic or bash Florida by any means because it's obviously a great place to be if you're a golfer but the lack of topography in my opinion in that state (i.e. it's the flattest state in the union) makes it hard for there to be truly great courses there. You can have fun/good courses that are in fantastic shape, but IMHO, a great course needs some contours and natural topography that Florida isn't able to offer. There's a reason none of the US Open, PGA, Ryder Cup, etc. courses are in Florida.

Derek Ernst is a member at Belmont CC in Fresno, Ca. (Probably not quite the level of tour pro you were after, but it's all I got ;))

Yes, that reason is called summer.  They don't play US Opens or PGA Championships in Florida or Texas because they are held in June and August respectively.  The USGA chooses traditional courses in NY, PA, MI, which were operational before air conditioning and development came to FL.


Plus, there's this event called the Players Championship which takes place in FL each year and it is considered the 5th major.  In addition to the WGC event at Doral and the other tour events.

They have played US Opens in Texas several times (Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston) and most of those were before everybody had air conditioning.

They also played the US Open in St. Louis and that's the hottest place in the world in the summer. (Hyperbole but not much). ;-)

My wife's family lives near Tulsa, that can be a furnace as well, and they've played the US Open there.

    • Maybe for some of them. That green complex looked brutal tho. Not really a good bailout for where the pin was. I think men would have struggled with that pin position too. 
    • The very latest.  Still across the line...finding it hard to work on that and get it fixed.  The downswing/hands in and extending part is going well though.  I've been setting up closer to the ball since I didn't like the posture I saw earlier this year.  I really like where that is at right now. Problems?  Still consistency.  When I'm on, I'm on and it feels good.  Miss is just a straight pull...not a hook.  If I keep my right elbow/forearm tucked in I almost never have the over-the-top pull. Oh, and sorry about the red @iacas.  I'm in the blue camp, not @mvmac's red.    
    • Yeah, and a convinient bail out spot for short left shots. 
    • I do a mix of all those things. Except massage..they hurt.. When i was younger i used to be all into super prep and trying to map out the course i was going to be playing to the shot. Then in the tournament i dont hit the shots anywhere near i planned out anyway... I played better once i stopped doing that because i felt i was free to just play the shot in front of me, instead of being frustrated that my round wasn't following some script i made up. I think its important to have good survey of the property where you're playing and have a general plan of attack that fits your game, but dont overdo it.  As far a scoring goes, bogeys don't kill you. Doubles or more do. Bogey should always be your in mindset after a miserable shot, and if you get par or better in the process - bonus!  Trying to play hero recovery shots most often leads to big numbers. Take whats in front of you, even though it may taste like weaksause sometimes.  But I would say overall, focus and self confidence is the biggest weapon you're going to have. Know that you belong and feeling like you're the best player there. If you dont win, its because you let someone else win, not because you're not the best.   Dont worry about what your playing partners are doing. They are not putting the ball in the hole for you. Play your game to the best you got and you'll be fine. Enjoy yourself. Theres no better rush in golf than competition. Its a reward in itself. 
    • Does anyone experience hitting sand shots that hardly get off the sand and hit the inside of the bunker?  I am experiencing this bladed shot and don't know why so I'm open to suggestions.  I worked on it today and I seem to be much better off hitting a normal pitch like shot out of the bunker as opposed to opening the face, exposing the bounce, etc.  Interested in any thoughts.
