118 yards away? Just putt it

First spotted at GolfNewsNet (please visit the site; it’s a really good one), here’s a look at one way to approach the greens  – even from 118 yards away – at fabled Oakmont, site of the 2016 U.S. Open.

It’s a method we can appreciate here at Pinehurst.

Pinehurst’s Mitchum to honor Townsend, and raise money for his family at Wells Fargo Championship


Michael Townsend is pictured with his family (l-r), son Spencer, wife Katherine and daughter Ana Kate.

As a lead instructor at the Pinehurst Golf Academy, Kelly Mitchum gives lessons every day trying to help guests and students improve at the game of golf.

Now, though, Mitchum would like to give something more through golf.

When Mitchum recently qualified for the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, he took the spot that was originally earned by fellow PGA Professional Michael Townsend, who tragically died in a car accident last summer just eight days after winning the Carolinas PGA Section Championship.

Playing in Townsend’s place, Mitchum is hoping to raise money for the Michael Townsend Trust Fund, which benefits Townsend’s family – his wife Katherine and the couple’s two children, 3-year-old Spencer and 1-year-old Ana Kate.

Those interested in making donations may do so in one of several ways: by pledging a dollar amount for the number of birdies or pars made by Mitchum at the Wells Fargo, or with a one-time contribution.

The Wells Fargo Championship will be played May 2-8, 2016. Those interested in donating may contact the Pinehurst Resort Tournaments office at for more information.

Golf and High fives? Not a good match

High fives in golf often go horribly wrong.

What’s next for Bryson DeChambeau? Might it be knickers?


If you’ve followed us here in the past, you know of phenom Bryson DeChambeau’s affinity for the late Payne Stewart, who is, of course, near and dear to our hearts at Pinehurst.

And while DeChambeau has mentioned in previous interviews he dons the hat in a tribute to Payne, the next question soon became obvious. And today, DeChambeau was asked that question:

If you can’t read DeChambeau’s answer there, here it is:

Q. Any chance we can see you in knickers a la Payne Stewart?

BRYSON DECHAMBEAU: “I think I have to make my card before I pull that one out. I don’t think I’m ready for that. We’ve definitely thought about it, we almost did it at The Masters and we almost did it last week, but it just wasn’t the right time.

“It would have looked arrogant to the other players out here. I have to be respectful of them because, again, I’m not trying to come out here and say, ‘Hey, look, I’m this new star.’

“That’s not what I’m trying to do. I’m just trying to pay my respect to the guys that have made golf what it is today, and I think there’s a right time for it and you will see it. But I just don’t know about it being right now. We’re definitely thinking about it and trying to make it happen, though.”
