MICHIGAN GOLF HALL OF FAME WELCOMES JANKE, LEEKE, MORGAN AND SALUTES THE BUICK OPEN
A full spectrum of golf in Michigan will be honored May 18 at Indianwood Golf & Country Club in Lake Orion when Ken Janke, Meriam Bailey Leeke and John Morgan will be inducted into the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame and the Buick Open will be given a special award as it celebrates its 50th anniversary as the state’s long-running PGA Tour event.
Janke and Leeke have had multi-faceted careers and the self-taught Morgan compiled a strong playing record which led to his being named Golf Association of Michigan’s Player of the Decade for the 1980s, a period in which he won the Michigan Amateur, won three GAM Championships and two of his three Michigan Mid-Amateur Championships. Morgan qualified and played in three United States Amateur Championships and four Mid-Amateurs. Playing first as a member of the Michigan Publinx Golf Association and making its Honor Roll in 1981 and 1982, Morgan made the GAM Honor Roll 11 times in a span of 1983-95 during which he was an Oakland Hills member and now at Detroit Golf Club.
“I joke that I got my competitive nature from my Dad but not his golf swing,” said the 6-foot-1 Morgan whose golf swing has the easy grace of Tom Weiskopf. Morgan thought he was headed for a Division II school in Pennsylvania after two years at Oakland Community College on a team that went to the national finals but five hours at the Michigan Amateur changed that. “I was on the range and hitting next to Jim Lipe who was the Assistant Coach at the University of Michigan. I’d lost to Bud Stevens in 19 holes and Lipe said, ‘We want you at Michigan.’”
Meriam Bailey Leeke also is a Big Ten product but when she played at Northwestern University, women’s golf wasn’t recognized as a varsity sport. Leeke was inducted into the Northwestern Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992 although the school didn’t hand out varsity letters to all the past women athletes until a special ceremony at halftime of a football game in 2002.
Leeke’s father, who played football at Illinois with Red Grange, introduced her to golf and she broke 80 by the time she was 12. She began playing national events at 13, played high school golf in Evanston and in 1956 won the Chicago District Golf Association Match and Stroke Play titles and the Illinois Women’s Amateur. In 1957 she won the National Intercollegiate and the Women’s Western Amateur and in 1958 was named to the U.S. Curtis Cup team.
Although she played in a number of women’s professional tournaments, the purses averaged only $2,000 and Leeke decided against turning pro. She and her husband, Lyle, took over the family course, Old Channel Trail in Montague (MI) in 1966. It was a nine hole course by Robert Bruce Harris on 90 acres and in the years since nine holes designed by W. Bruce Matthews and nine more by his son, Jerry were added. Meriam has been on boards of banks, charities, two colleges and currently is director and treasurer of the National Golf Course Owners Association.
Ken Janke got an early start in golf, caddying at Plum Hollow Golf Club when he was nine years old. While always a strong player – he captained his Dearborn High School team for two years of unbeaten match play events and won the 1957 U.S. Army Military Championship in Chantilly, France -- Janke is better known for his contributions to the game.
Establishing the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame was Janke’s idea in 1982. Janke also was the father of major charity golf events beginning in 1967 when he and former Detroit Lions All-Pro Ron Kramer founded the Walter Hagen Invitational to benefit the American Cancer Society. That led to similar tournaments around the country and Janke was awarded the Cancer Society’s Founder’s Award.
Janke also has organized the Babe Zaharias Invitational, March of Dimes, Tournament, St. Jude Invitational tournaments and B’nai Brith Championship. In 1979 he was instrumental in founding the Detroit Lions Alumni Golf Outing to benefit the NFL Alumni Dire Need Fund and the format has spread to 28 cities. Janke also found time to build a comprehensive collection of golf memorabilia and to write four books on the game’s quirks, laughs and facts.
Since its inception in 1958 with the then-unheard of purse of $52,000 with $9,000 of it going to the winner, Billy Casper, the Buick Open has brought big-time golf to Michigan. The game’s greatest players have played in the Buick Open including Casper, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Julius Boros, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Tom Weiskopf, Fred Couples, Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, and Tiger Woods.
Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc, its members and the thousands of volunteers have made “Buick Open Week” one of summer’s major events in Michigan and the tournament has raised $8.8 million dollars for southeast Michigan charities.
When Buick introduced the tournament it was the first major corporate sponsor of the PGA Tour and while sponsors have come and gone in other tournaments, Buick and Michigan golf have enjoyed a long, fruitful relationship. In recognition of the Buick Open’s great influence on the game in Michigan, the Michigan Golf Foundation will honor the tournament during the Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Indianwood.
Golf on the Old Course at Indianwood will be at 1:00 with the reception, dinner and induction ceremony immediately following golf. Tickets for golf, reception, dinner and induction ceremony are $175 or $50 without golf.
For more information, contact Loretta Larkin at firstname.lastname@example.org or (248) 719-0650.
The full roster of Michigan Golf Hall of Fame members is on the Web site: www.michigan-golf-foundation.com
WMGS 20 STRAIGHT YEARS WITHOUT MISSING A CUT ER... SHOW
Although now attracting over 200 exhibitors from across the state and country, the West Michigan Golf Show held this weekend -- Feb. 22-24-- at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids expresses its gratitude to the select group of exhibitors listed below for 20 consecutive years of patronage and support. On March 4, 1989 the inaugural West Michigan Golf Show took place at the Cascade Sports Arena in Cascade Township, Michigan. Braving a vicious ice storm, the following exhibitors, from a group of 62, were there at the start and haven’t missed a single show since:
Boyne Country CVB
Golf Association of Michigan
Grand Traverse Resort
Gull Lake View
Shanty Creek/Schuss Mountain
Sponsors include Srixon, Golf Association of Michigan, Odawa Casino Resort, and the Michigan Section PGA. Hours for the Show are 4:00 pm-9:00 pm, Friday; 10:00 am-7:00 pm, Saturday, and 10:00 am-5:00 pm, Sunday. Tickets are $9 for adults, $4 for children ages 6-14, and children 5 and under are free.

OAKLAND HILLS: A LITTLE RYDER CUP, U.S. AMATEUR, TRENT JONES, AL WATROUS AND "THE HAIG"
If you haven't ordered those PGA Championship tickets http://www.pga.com/pgachampionship/2008/index.html you had better pony up soon. This is going to be, outside of the Buick Open with the occasional Tiger Woods appearance, one of the last times you will see big time golf in Michigan. After the PGA Championship, we will be back to where we were 50 years ago, when the Buick fired up for the first time.
We thought we would get you in the mood for the 90th PGA Championship a little bit by showing you some scenes we shot of Oakland Hills during the Ryder Cup, the U.S. Amateur and last summer's Open qualifier. For good measure, we tossed in some footage of Robert Trent Jones as he talked about caddying for Walter Hagen, his admiration for Oakland Hills professional, Al Watrous and some of his thoughts on golf course design. Jack Berry, Terry Moore and Jennie McCafferty help out with comments and interviews. Enjoy.

GOLF DIGEST LISTS RICK SMITH GOLF ACADEMY AT TREETOPS IN TOP 8 OF 50 BEST IN U.S.
The Rick Smith Golf Academy at Treetops Resort finished 8th in a Golf Digest list of America's 50 Greatest Teachers. Kudos to Treetops for keeping the positive Michigan ink flowing. The school has been a Top 10 school for most of a decade. I would think that if they ever got around to a Greatest Women Teachers, Judy Mason would be in the hunt. You can see both Henry Young and Judy Mason online as they chat or demonstrate their schools.

CHAMPS SPIKES TAKES PINK ON THE LINKS GLOBAL IN 2008
CHAMP Spikes will expand its highly successful Pink on the Links program for 2008 by adding an eBay charity auction and increasing player participation with the addition of international and national Tours. CHAMP created Pink on the Links in 2007 as a way to raise funds for breast cancer research. CHAMP donated money to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) on behalf of PGA and LPGA Tour players that wore CHAMP’s commemorative pink and white spikes during Mother’s Day weekend tournaments, The PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass and the Michelob Ultra Classic at Kingsmill.
Following the Mother’s Day tournaments this year, CHAMP will hold an eBay auction of autographed golf memorabilia for collectors of all ages to raise additional funds for cancer research.
ANN ARBOR MAKES MOVE TO STOP THE BLEEDING
The Ann Arbor City Council voted to award a liquor license to their Leslie Park Golf Course. In addition, the council also voted to reduce the costs of golf, by reducing fees for the year at both Leslie Park and Huron Hills. These actions were taken by the council after a study indicated that golfers were going to other courses, because of price and also because outings, wanted a course where they could have a brewski or two during the match.
GOLF DIGEST SELECTS A LONG DRIVE IN MICHIGAN
Golf Digest has a new feature called Long Drives, with this month's featuring a long drive in Michigan. They picked up a Shelby GT500 and drove to and played Tullymore, Treetops, Bay Harbor, Forest Dunes and Archadia Bluffs. All and all a pretty nice trip.
ARCADIA BLUFF'S SUNSET GRILL MAKES TOP 50 IN AMERICA'S GREATEST GOLF BARS
Golf Digest had an interesting feature in this issue, naming the 50 Best Golf Bars in America. Michigan's lone entry was the Sunset Grill located at Arcadia Bluff , where they said a person sitting there "could see all the way across Lake Michigan to Whistling Straits". We could not agree more, it is a sensational 19th hole. In fact, we could have brought you some video on it, but when we dropped by last summer, we were told to put our camera away. Bummer. However, my lovely bride and I ordered a couple of cold ones and watched the sun dance on the waves below.
The Michigan Golfer did a feature on this a couple of years ago in one of our Top 10 lists and maybe it is time to do it again. Since the Sunset Grill listing in Golf Digest gives the the bragging rights, we will give them the top spot. The other ones listed here tie for second place. What would you recommend we add to the list?
1. Sunset Grill - Arcadia Bluff- Hey, Bill Shriver, let us bring our cameras there.
2. Garland- It is a constant "Happy Hour" as you drink in both beauty and beverage at the ever beautiful Garland.
2. Everett's at Boyne Mountain- It is a newbie as golf bars go, but it has a richness to it and it is jammed with Kircher memorabilia for those that like
to drink and wander. It would take you a couple of cold ones just to look at all of the Kircher photos under glass on the bar. Kircher was
absolutely, positively one of a kind. We raise a glass and toast his memory whenever we are in the place.
2. The entire staff of the Michigan Golfer has driven 60 miles out of their way to have a Tennents at the Kinlochen bar. It is
one of the world's great beers and one of the world's great downers when they run out. Are you listening Jim MacInnes? We usually
end up there the last day of the Michigan Women's Open. Great views, conversations and beverages.
2. Little Traverse Bay Golf Club- We did a Golfing the Great Lakes television show there about 15 years ago, and the view and brew we
experienced there has forever remained in our hearts.
2. Eagle Crest Resort- This has been a bit of a home base for the Michigan Golfer. Bill Shelton, our first host of the Michigan Golfer
Television Show, was the former President of the University and I, your humble editor worked there for a couple of decades. The grill has a
grand view of the driving range and Ford Lake. Their balcony makes a perfect place for post event party or university fundraiser.
2. Buck's Run Golf Course- Take a gravel pit, a couple of bull dozers, the creative juices of Jerry Matthews, a great club house design and you
have a wrap around view of a golf course that is outstanding. You can see five of Buck's Run "water" holes at once as you look out from the
2. Shanty Creek-One of the first great Michigan golf views, the look out at Lake Bellaire is overwhelming. It is always a pleasure to drop by
and have a nice glass of wine and just simply gaze out the window either winter or summer.
2. Grand Traverse Resort- & Spa- One of Michigan's great Sunday afternoons is watching the finishers of the Michigan Open hit across the pond to
the 18th green of the Bear. The bar/restaurant ares just outside the clubhouse. let's you drink in the history of the day and the tournament.
2. Indianwood Golf and Country Club -Okay, so we have been a little bit influenced by all of the Michigan Hall of Fame members that meet there
once a year for the Michigan Golf Hall of Fame outing, but it is a very nice place to hob nob with the best of the best.
2. Oakland Hills CC- The story here is not what you had to drink, but what the likes of Walter Hagen, Ben Hogan, Robert Trent Jones and all of the
great past and present golf personalities in the world have had to drink.
2. Logmark -Liquid Louie, famous Otsego Club bartender, is still on the mend from some bypass surgery, but as the saying goes, Louie,
"You da man". This is where the locals hang out in Gaylord. Mike Biber, et. al. have upgraded the place and secured and insured its continued
leadership. A very cosy bar, with a great tv, pool table and view.
2. A-Ga-Ming - A new clubhouse is coming to A-Ga-Ming this year to better serve their two course layout. The new clubhouse will perch on one of
the two ridges that have helped make the new Sundance course so memorable. However, the new clubhouse will be hard pressed to match the
great view now available from the deck of the old clubhouse. The current clubhouse affords a view of some of their golf holes, nearby woods and
beautiful Torch Lake, one of the world's most beautiful lakes.
2. Hidden River Golf and Country Club- This used to be called the Hidden River Golf and Casting Club, primarily for the river that does run through it.
The river passes below the clubhouse and one of the finishing holes . The setting by the rippling water is magical.
Did we miss your favorite watering hole? Let us know where it is and why you like it and send it to email@example.com Cheers.
WHAT'S NEW WITH BOYNE GOLF? GOT CADDIES?
Boyne Highlands' Heather course is proudly offering the return of caddies in 2008. The Heather http://michigangolfer.tv/2006shows/boynegolf/heather/ , designed by highly acclaimed architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. (completed in 1966), is a classic parkland layout ideal for walking. Resort guests and golf aficionados will surely enjoy the caddie experience by taking a walk back in time and experiencing the game the way it was meant to be.
In addition to the caddie program, guests can also take a forecaddie during a golf round. The fundamental difference between a caddie and forecaddie is that a caddie and player walk together and a forecaddie runs along with players who are in a cart. Both caddies and forecaddies assist golfers in many ways during a round by carrying clubs, reading greens, club selection and yardage, raking traps, cleaning clubs, and tending the flagstick, all in order to make the golf round and the BOYNE experience the best it can be.
Forecaddies are a standard service from 6:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays from June 14-August 31. The forecaddie fee is $15 per person and caddies are $35 per person (gratuity not included) and require advance reservation.

BILL FOUNTAIN STARTS HIS MGCOA REIGN
Bill Fountain, begins his two year reign as the President of the MGCOA, taking over the reins from Frank Guastella. Fountain is well suited for the job, which will require imaginative ways to increase revenue and cut expenses to make it in a tough Michigan economy.
The ideas of Fountain and his team at Majestic at Lake Walden have appeared in the pages of the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. He has been a tireless promoter and supporter of golf at his own course as well as Michigan golf courses in general. He has been one of the initiators and supporters of the MGCOA Golf League Championship and an active participant in the work efforts of the organizations Government Affairs Committee. He possesses the strong leadership that is needed for us to chart an economical renewal.

In “a local lad does well” angle, it was gratifying to see Flushing’s Jeff Roth earn some national television time and have such a strong final round this past Sunday at the Ace Group Classic Champions Tour event. A Michigan Golf Hall of Fame member, Roth carded a seven-under par 65, finished tied for 13th and earned $30,400. The Golf Channel’s Sunday telecast caught Roth’s red-hot round (tied for low of the day) at the 18th hole. While Roth lined up his long final birdie attempt, the announcer—Champions Tour player John Jacobs—wondered aloud if Roth might “three jack” considering the pressure and the distance. Well, JJ sure didn’t know about Roth’s stellar reputation as a putter! In fact, Roth’s long putt nearly grazed the hole and almost fell in for a 64. Roth is blessed with an amazing putting stroke. (In my estimation, his long, syrupy slow, pendulum stroke is in a small coveted league all by itself. Only Tour player Frank Connors’ and former U.S. Amateur champion Nathaniel Crosby’s strokes rival it.) For the week, Roth tied for low man in official putting stats with 26.2 putts per round while also tying for second in fairways hit, missing only four fairways for 54 holes.
After the round, Roth was interviewed on television and commented how he was able, freed now from his former club pro demands, to focus on his golf game. “I can just play golf and practice and work on my game,” said Roth. Unfortunately, Roth will have to rely on Monday qualifying—he shot 67 to get into the field at the Ace—and maybe some sponsor’s exemptions (which are normally given to more well-known established players) to earn his keep on the Champions Tour. The PGA Tour makes it extremely difficult for club pros like Roth to be a part of “The Show.” Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press reported he spoke to Roth on Sunday night and Roth told him even if he had finished in the Top Ten at the Ace he wasn’t guaranteed a spot in the next Champions Tour event. You see, the Tour limits such spots to only two non-exempt players. Man, it’s no wonder a former club pro like Dana Quigley became known as the Champions Tour “ironman.” Once a player wins or earns some money, he’d better keep playing week after week after week to keep one’s card against players with lifetime Tour money exemptions. In any event, it will be fascinating to watch “JR” test his strong game and course management skills against the rigors of the Champions Tour. Roth’s next Monday qualifying will be on March 3 in Newport Beach, CA, for the Toshiba Classic.

YOU TUBE ERA HIGHLIGHTED AT UPCOMING MICHIGAN TOURISM CONFERENCE
Josh Hallett, will be one of the keynoters at the upcoming Michigan Tourism Conference in Grand Rapids is April. His address, “Promoting Your Destination in the Age of YouTube, MySpace and Facebook” is a comment on today's changing media. At GLSP, we are estatic, as we have not only been involved with online video since 2001, but now have over 400 shows up on You Tube, over a 100 for our golf clients.
GOLFWEEK ANNOUNCES NEW GOLFWEEK TV PROGRAMMING
GolfweekTV is debuting new original programming.
"We couldn't be more excited about our new video lineup," said Jay Coffin, editor of digital media/video. "We feel that we have found the perfect blend of entertainment and analysis and believe we have programming that caters to everyone across all aspects of the game. Golfweek's online video is available at Golfweek.com, and debuts this season with several new original programs including:
--"Small Bucket" - Hosted by Asher Wildman, each weekday viewers can tune in for a brief update on the happenings in the
world of golf.
--"Hosel Rockets" - Mondays, Jeff Rude provides his rants and raves from the previous week.
--"Match Play" -Golfweek's editorial staff goes head-to-head over the hottest topics in golf.
--"Par 5" - Airing on Wednesday, our college experts debate the latest college hot buttons.
--"The Winning Mind" & "Suzy's Swing Tips" will each be posted every other Thursday, providing mental and physical tips to
get your game up to par.
--"Hate to be Rude" will debut on Friday's, when Jeff Rude gets the biggest names in golf to open up about topics not
GolfweekTV is accessible by visiting http://Golfweek.com. There is a list of programming as it becomes available, from which visitors can choose what they would like to watch. Once they have clicked on the link to the program it will open and begin playing.
ONLINE VIDEO: IT KEEP GOING AND GOING AND GOING
It seems like online video has many fathers. For the past 10 months, we have been putting our GLSP videos on You Tube as well as our regular online channels. What is amazing is that we constantly see our shows now on other websites, namely; http://www.findinternettv.com/, http://www.watchlocalvideos.com, http://www.maverick-motors.com, http://www.webmunism.com, http://www.flixya.com/, http://dabble.com/ and http://www.videofiend.com/ .
In some cases, like Truveo, the video is actually presented much more stylishly than You Tube. In others, the presentation seems much more mechanical and lacks the esthetics of Truveo and You Tube. On the statistical side, it seems that the home base, on in this case, You Tube, is the true recorder of traffic. We went to a Truveo site and quickly clicked on a show five times. When we went to the You Tube site, where we originally placed the video, we saw that the You Tube counter had moved to show it had been clicked on five times.
While placement in other video channel platforms do not create parallel statistical models, the fact that so many other sites harvest and display online videos, does mean videos are available at more sites for more people. The revolution is here.
* The short fortune teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.
* A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.
* A thief fell and broke his leg in wet cement. He became a hardened criminal.
* The dead batteries were given out free of charge.
* If you take a laptop computer for a run you could jog your memory.
* A dentist and a manicurist fought tooth and nail.
* A chicken crossing the road: poultry in motion.
* If you don't pay your exorcist you can get repossessed.
