Carl Westberg : Congrats to Moscow native and Moscow High School grad Chris Williams for yet another feather in his golf cap......
FORT WORTH, Texas – Chris Williams was named recipient of the 2013 Ben Hogan Award on Monday in a black-tie ceremony at Colonial Country Club.
Williams is the second Washington Husky, joining Nick Taylor in 2010, to be honored with college golf’s most prestigious award.
The Ben Hogan Award is presented annually to the top men’s NCAA Division I, II or III, NAIA or NJCAA college golfer taking into account all collegiate and amateur competitions during the 12-month period dating from the previous award’s banquet.
The Ben Hogan Award selection committee is made up of 23 leaders and experts in amateur, college and professional golf.
As the 2013 The Ben Hogan Award recipient, Williams will receive an exemption into the PGA Tour’s 2014 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, as well as earn a $50,000 grant for the UW men’s golf scholarship program, $25,000 of which will be donated under his name.
“This is pretty surreal for me,” Williams told a full-house crowd at Colonial Country Club after accepting the award. “I grew up in Moscow, Idaho. I never thought I’d be here today.
“Our golf season is about three weeks long,” he joked. “We don’t get a lot of time to play, but I took advantage of it.”
Williams is the world’s No.1-ranked amateur in both the World Amateur Golf Rankings and the Scratch Players World Rankings. He was the 2012 recipient of the Mark H. McMormack Medal as the world’s top-ranked amateur to clinch berths into the 2013 U.S. Open and the Open Championship. 7 hours ago - View -

Rob Squillante : More PGA-R.I.P. Ken Venturi(1931-2012). Winner of the 1964 U.S. Open Championship, Venturi was a long time contributor to professional golf, as a player and in later life as a commentator. Venturi's tragic passing comes just 12 days after his induction into the World Golf Hall Of Fame. May God be with you Ken. Your contributions to golf will never go unnoticed and we will never lose sight of your greatness in the game. Gone, but never to be forgotten. 2 days ago - View -

Mizuno Golf Canada : Timeline Photos What a special day at the Palace! Absolutely Chuffed. Now it’s time to celebrate! In search of a three-peat at next week's BMW PGA Championship, Luke Donald took a break from tournament preparations Friday to receive a high honor from Buckingham Palace.
Donald was awarded the MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire), an honor bestowed upon civilians and service personnel for public service and other distinctions. The Englishman was noted for his work both on and off the golf course, having held the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings for a total of 55 weeks in addition to helping organizations like the First Tee raise millions of dollars for junior golf.
"I am truly honored to be awarded an MBE by her Majesty," Donald said in a released statement. "Both personally and professionally, 2011 and 2012 were very significant seasons for me and I'm touched that my accomplishments have been recognized in this way."
Donald capped a career year in 2011, winning the money titles on both the PGA Tour and the European Tour. He went on to win twice in 2012, including a successful defense of his BMW title at Wentworth.
