By |  January 25, 2016 0 Comments


1. Flag Swag
(L to R) Mike Posey (Hoover [Ala.] CC); Tyler Andersen (University of Texas GC, Austin) and Kyle Johnson (Inverness CC, Birmingham, Ala.), show off their swag with Golfdom’s Grant B. Gannon.

2. The Blues Brothers
(L to R) Smithco’s Jim Block and Don Smith and Golfdom Publisher Pat Roberts were on a mission — a mission from Golfdom.

3. Relaxin’
Is it just us, or does it look like North Coast Media’s Craig MacGregor (front row, relaxed) has done this before?

4. Not-so subtle Seth
With Royals cup in hand, (L to R) Seth Jones reminds Grayson Grainger (St. James Plantation, Southport, N.C.) Jeremy Booth, CGCS, (Willow Oaks CC, Richmond, Va.) and Cam Copley (Nufarm) — and everyone else — that the Royals won the World Series.

5. Photo op
Andy Bates (Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, Farmington, Pa.) and Linda Wheeler (SipcamAdvan-Rotam) pose for a photo.

6. Turf-father
(Center) Mark Kuhns (Baltusrol, Springfield Township, N.J.) with fellow Jersey supers (L to R) Jeremy Batz (Trump National GC-Colts Neck, N.J.); Tyler Otero (North Jersey CC, Wayne, N.J.); Russ Harris (Galloping Hill GC, Kenilworth, N.J.) and Mike Brunelle, CGCS, (Upper Montclair CC, Clifton, N.J.)

7. Most fun foursome
They might not have shot the best score, but (L to R) Alex Stuedemann, (TPC Deere Run, Silvis, Ill.); Woody Moriarty (Blue Hills CC, Kansas City, Mo.); Gary Myers (BASF) and Mike Posey (Hoover CC) may have had the most fun of any golf group.

8. Winner’s circle
Speaking of the best score, the team of (L to R) Chris Zugel (Whistling Straits, Kohler, Wis.); Kevin Blanton (Cushman); Matthew Wharton (Carolina Golf Club, Charlotte, N.C.) and Johnny Walker (Bentwater Y&CC, Montgomery, Texas) went low, shooting a 58.

9. Straight outta Scotland
While warming up for the tournament on the driving range, Summit attendees listened to the sweet sounds of the bagpipe.

10. El Niño
Scott Kinkead (left), vice president at Turfco, and NCM President Kevin Stoltman enjoy the Florida weather. December usually means snow for these two, who live in Minnesota and Ohio, respectively.

11. Open minds
(L to R) The 2016 U.S. Open host, John Zimmers (Oakmont [Pa.] CC) sits down with Golfdom’s Pat Roberts and the 2014 U.S. Open host, Kevin Robinson (Pinehurst [N.C.] Resort.)

12. Red or blue
Kyle Johnson (left, Inverness CC) during a friendly game of cornhole against Josh Lewis (Almaden Golf & Country Club, San Jose, Calif.)

13. Steroids?
Cornhole got a little intense when a high-arching toss was caught in a chandelier. The solution? Throw another to knock it down. The result? Two bags in the chandelier.

14. Superstitious supers
Johnny Walker (Bentwater Y&CC) lines up a putt while his teammates assume their lucky “lean-on your putter” pose.
