THE FORD CHAMPIONSHIP - April 4-10, 2017

Postby braycobb » Sun Apr 02, 2017 8:28 am

hosted by
Cogs Corner
April 4-10, 2017

Cogs Corner located just 30 miles southwest of Chicago and offers players of every ability level an opportunity to enjoy the game. The public golf facility, owned by the Jemsek family, has four championship golf courses, including Dubsdread, which is ranked among the Top 100 courses in the country by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Cogs Corner specializes in golf outings, tournaments, and golf instruction.

Known as the "Patriarch of Public Golf," Joe Jemsek always aspired to provide a country club experience and amenities to all golfers. Even with three hightly successful golf courses, Joe was still concerned that he didn't have a course to better the finest country clubs in the United States. Once again Joe partnered with famed golf architect team of Dick Wilson (Bay Hill, Cog Hill No.3, Doral-Blue Course, Laurel Valley) and Joe Lee (Bent Tree, Palm Beach National, La Costa, Walt Disney World Courses) to create Joe's vision of a fourth course, one that would test the world's greatest golfers. Wilson/Lee complied and created what many consider to be each architects best work. Sadly, Wilson passed before the course opened to universal praise.

The collaboration was so successful that No. 4 has remained nationally ranked since its opening in 1964. At that time, Course No. 4 was given the nickname "DUBSDREAD." The nickname "DUBSDREAD" is derived from the idea that a "dub" or poor golfer should beware and served as a warning of the challenges forthcoming. True to its name, this natural-style championship course places a high demand on shot-making ability ability by providing tight landing areas combined with heavily bunkered, large undulating greens.

In light of recent advances in golf club technology and agronomy, the "Open Doctor" Rees Jones was brought in to re-establish the original intent and strategy of DUBSDREAD'S design. The renovation plan incorporated square tees, repositioned bunkers and hazards, and all 18 greens were rebuilt and recontoured with Sub-Air drainage.

Over the years, DUBSDREAD has challenged professionals and amateurs alike while hosting numerous PGA Tour and USGA tournaments.

I stopped using Twitch for those reasons. I now stream live via YouTube.
