What is mr. stat golf?
"There is golf and there is tournament golf!" I don't know who to give credit for that quote, but that is about as true a statement about golf that I know. Winning a golf tournament is hard. Ben Hogan is credited with saying "This is a game of misses. The guy who misses the best is going to win!"
Our mission at mr. stat golf is to preserve the names of Georgia's golf champions. Those players who missed it the best when it counted. We are searching old newspapers, plaques on clubhouse walls and whatever golf course records we can locate to name as many champions as possible. We are also counting on you, our viewers, to help us fill in the many gaps we currently have. Please enjoy our website. It exists because of you.
Arnold Palmer once said "I can sum it up like this: Thank God for the game of golf!" I would like to add to that " and thank God for the game of tournament golf!!"
