The View Point
February, 2017 Newsletter
The Master’s Tournament is set for April once again and of all four major tournaments, it is the only one that returns to the same venue every year. Jack Nicklaus has won the Master’s at Augusta National six times. Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods won the event four times each. Five players have won the event three times each. Those players are Jimmy Demaret, Sam Sneed, Gary Player, Nick Faldo, and Phil Mickelson. Horton Smith won the inaugural tournament back in 1934. The highest winning score of 289 (+1) was originally set by Sam Snead in 1954. The lowest 72 hole total is 18 under, recorded by Tiger Woods in 1997 and Jordon Spieth in 2015. Only five players have won the Master’s wire to wire, and include Craig Wood (1941), Arnold Palmer (1960), Jack Nicklaus (1972), Raymond Floyd (1976), and Jordon Spieth (2015). Playing in the Master’s is the dream of any professional or amateur golfer. Come see us for this year’s Master’s Sweeps on April 8th, and see if you can pick the winner.
Rules And Etiquette
Etiquette is an important part of the game, defining golf’s core values. I describes the manner in which the game of golf should be played to ensure all players gain maximum enjoyment. Many say it’s all about respect. Respect for the course by repairing pitch-marks, replacing or filling divots, and raking bunkers properly. Respect your fellow players by showing good sportsmanship and being polite, to stay by the green and watch them hole out, to avoid distraction. Respect for the game requires one to know the Rules and etiquette.
Golf is played for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game of golf relies on integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players, care for the course and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times. This is the spirit of the game of golf.

A Bit Of Golf Humor
If you think it’s hard to meet new people, try picking up the wrong golf ball.
If profanity had any influence on the flight of the golf ball, golf would be played far better than it is.
Happiness is a long walk with your putter.
To see a man’s true character, play golf with him.
Playing golf is a lot like doing your taxes. You drive hard to make the green, just to end up in the hole.
Have you noticed that it is easier to get up at 6am to play golf than at 10am to mow the yard?
Golf is an endless series of tragedies obscured by an occasional miracle.
Golf is like sex. When it’s good, it’s terrific. When it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.
Golf is lots of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.
Jim and Bonnie Rakich have been members here at Mount Shasta Resort since 2008, and they are the cutest couple on the course. We see them playing during the week and on weekends. They usually coordinate their colors before they arrive at the course and they always have a smile to share with us. If we have a “Valentine’s Day” golf tournament, they would be the first to sign up. Jim carries a 13 handicap and Bonnie is happy with her 30. Jim is long and tall, so his strength is the long game. He can hit his driver out there with guys half his age. Bonnie has a very good short game, and the two together would be tough to beat. We have selected Jim and Bonnie as our “Valentine’s Day Couple” for this year.
