My Mike Strantz piece is up at Golf Observer

Sal Johnson is a genius – you have to see the AMAZING photo he found of Mike planting the Hinkle Tree at the 1979 U.S. Open.

While I have the floor, to dispel a myth, Mike Strantz never worked on Tom Fazio’s terrific designs at World Woods.  I know it looks that way, but Mike told me in interviews (Part One and Part Two) that he never set foot on the property.  He was saddened by that as he heard he’d have loved it.

Finally, I’m biased, but I’m really fond of this piece A Page From Mike Strantz’s diary in Heaven, so here’s the link.  I hope it makes you smile.

Via con dios Mike.  Have fun tomorrow at…lemme guess…Ballybunion, Crystal Downs, Monterey Peninsula Country Club (Shore Course) and Royal Melbourne.
