Abington Heights Golfer Sebastianelli To Continue Career At Ccsu

Girls golf: Valparaiso’s Harley Dubsky named Golfer of the Year

“That was a fun stretch of golf,” Sebastianelli said. “It was nice it happened in the beginning of the year. It really helped me, coming out, winning the Jackman, shooting a couple really low rounds in matches, it really got my mind set on a state title, which I ended up coming up really close to.” It also reassured him he could play at Division I. “I really enjoyed the Central Connecticut campus when I went to visit it,” Sebastianelli said. “Great people, a great bunch of guys and I really enjoyed the atmosphere that the coach presented to me. He told me the team is like a family and that really piqued my interest, the family aspect of it.” It also helped the school is what Sebastianelli considers the right distance form Clarks Summit.

Dubsky practiced shots inside of 100 yards over and over again last season. Not just shots on the range from inside a 100-yards, but short shots on the course. From 50-yards. From 75-yards.

Golfing Great Says Adam Scott Will Usurp Tiger Woods As World Number One

Golfing too much? How is that possible?

Scott retained his Australian Masters title on Sunday after fending off a strong challenge from American Matt Kuchar for back-to-back victories after winning the Australian PGA the previous week. The 33-year-old, who won his first major at this years Masters, is second in the world rankings and Norman is convinced he will take Woodss crown. Loved coming home to see my friend Adam Scott cleaning up the #australia golf season, Norman tweeted. So happy for and proud of him. #1 on the near horizon. The PGA of Australia said that if Scott continues his winning ways at this weeks World Cup at Royal Melbourne and next weeks Australian Open at Royal Sydney, he could go into 2014 with less than one point separating him from the once-untouchable Woods. Before his Australian Masters win, he was three points adrift, with Woods on 12.26 and Scott on 9.25.

Tom Watson goes on the defensive ahead of tournament in 2014. United States captain, Tom Watson will seek to heal...

It does give you an outlet.” I agree with the president, of course – both of them. However, my golf rounds during 2013 have not yet caught up to President Obamas current pace. Nonetheless, we both meet the official definition of an avid golfer, according to the golf industry. The PGA, the USGA, the LPGA, and the National Golf Foundation all agree that an avid golfer plays 25 rounds or more per year. I posted scores from 27 rounds from April through October, the official handicap season here in the Cape Region, with one-third of them nine-hole affairs. I figure I played about seven more rounds last winter, so the combination certainly puts me in the avid category.

Obama Golfing At ‘caddyshack’ Course

In South Florida for a trio of fundraisers the night before, Obama traveled north from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, where he joined former basketball player Alonzo Mourning at the Grande Oaks Golf Club. Stay on course with this season’s pro golf schedules . The name of the private, 18-hole course has changed over the years, but “Caddyshack” fans will remember it as the site where Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and a rambunctious gopher got into all kinds of antics in the 1980 comedy flick. Nearly three hours after he arrived, Obama was spotted behind the wheel of a golf cart, with Mourning in the passenger’s seat, cruising along near the ninth hole. The White House said former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a frequent Obama golf partner, and Cyrus Walker, the cousin of senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, rounded out the weekend foursome.

Final Series Golf 2013: Projected Rankings Following Turkish Airlines Open

Despite valiant efforts from some of the world’s best, including Justin Rose, Tiger Woods and current Race leader Henrik Stenson, Victor Dubuisson emerged victorious on Sunday, finishing two shots ahead of second-place Jamie Donaldson. However, Stenson remains very much the man to beat, as the Swedish star’s 18-under performance at the final tournament prior to the DP World Tour Championship later this week. Here’s a look at the latest projected rankings after the third event in this season’s Race to Dubai. Projected Final Series Rankings 1,407,779 EuropeanTour For a complete look at the predicted standings after the Turkish Airlines Open, head to EuropeanTour.com . Obviously, Stenson’s lead is reasonably comfortable, as he’s up by more than 200,000 points on Rose and the rest of the field heading into the European Tour finale in Dubai. That being said, Rose, last year’s runner-up to Rory McIlroy, has to be pleased with what was another strong performance for the 33-year-old. David Cannon/Getty Images After having tied with Woods for third, Rose is one of the few with a realistic chance of catching Stenson, and given how consistent the 2013 U.S. Open champion has been this year, one can’t count him out yet. Beyond him is Graeme McDowell, who will drop from second to third in the rankings, but that’s largely because he opted not to play in Turkey. Outside of McDowell and Rose, Ian Poulter’s play has been encouraging as well, as his fifth-place result here will keep him at least in contention if he has a strong showing in Dubai. And, one can’t discount the chances of Dubuisson and runner-up Donaldson, as both will look to carry the momentum gained at the Montgomerie Maxx course into next weekend. Dubuisson is playing the best golf of his career, and if he plays the way he did, particularly during the third round, he’ll be in for a big pay day in a week’s time. Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty Images Though he narrowly missed out on the title, Donaldson’s Round 4 outing opened some eyes as well, as his 63 was the day’s best. Now, heading into the climax of the 2013 European Tour season, it’ll take an equally impressive showing from either of them if they hope to catch Stenson, Rose and McDowell.

Golf-Happy homecoming as Scott wins Australian PGA

“I’ve been looking forward to coming home since April and playing in front of my friends and family.” Scott’s American playing partner Rickie Fowler finished second after a fourth round 68 with local youngster Jack Wilson, who also shot a 68, a further two shots back in third on eight-under. Despite holding a two-shot advantage after the second round and extending it to three on Saturday, Scott’s lead had been cut to one by Fowler when the players were taken off the Royal Pines course with the leaders on the 12th hole. After the weather break, though, there was only player in it with Scott immediately nailing a four iron from 215 metres to leave himself with a tap-in for an eagle three. “I kind of had some momentum going into the break having parred the 11th but when I came out I knew I had to do something special to win it,” he said. Fowler tried to keep pace with a birdie of his own but bogeyed the 13th and when Scott picked up shots at the 14th and 15th, the latter courtesy of another sublime approach shot, the Australian’s 24th career title looked assured.
