As the golf world continues to reflect on 2014, we at Pinehurst have been overwhelmed by some of the praise that has been directed at Pinehurst No. 2 and the 2014 U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open.

We are blessed with great leadership as well, which was recognized again in the January 2015 issue of Golf Digest when David Fay named Pinehurst CEO and Owner Robert Dedman Jr. to the “Super Six in Women’s Golf in 2014.”

Fay, the former executive director of the USGA, wrote of Dedman:

Splash, Splash, SWISH! Bryan Brothers strike again!

You already know why we’re fans of the Bryan Brothers.

But we’re also fans of trick shots that involve more than golf.

Recently, Wesley Bryan posted a new trick shot, skipping the ball across a pond, and into…wait, what is that exactly?

Well, we asked. It’s a basketball hoop on its side, taped over to show the effect of what happens when Wesley connects, hitting the ball through the hoop.

A regulation basketball rim diameter, by the way, is 18 inches.

Not bad, boys.

Here are the Bryan Brothers with Clarkie at Pinehurst:

Meet Urban Meyer, the golfer

Urban Meyer 1

Urban Meyer tees off at the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge Golf tournament.

Urban Meyer obviously doesn’t need any coaching advice from us.

But, we may be able to help the Ohio State football coach with his golf swing.

Here’s footage from our friends at PGA.com of Meyer teeing off in the 2013 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge Golf tournament.

Not bad, and our Eric Alpenfels might be able to give him a few pointers. Alpenfels, a Class A PGA of America professional, is the Director of Golf Instruction here at Pinehurst.

Of course, golf is likely the last thing on Meyer’s mind right now. His Buckeyes will face the Oregon Ducks in the national championship game Monday.

If Meyer’s team wins, he may considering rewarding himself with a trip to Pinehurst.

He can unwind with a visit to the spa, enjoy a fine meal at the Carolina Dining Room and take in a round on Pinehurst No. 2, a course played by every golf legend of the past century.

Of course, Meyer isn’t the only college football coach who unwinds on the greens.

Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher and Alabama’s Nick Saban both play golf.

Check out the video below to see Saban’s swing.
