Tiger woods’ chicago course design ‘sort of on hold’ golf channel electricity kwh cost uk

"We’re all sort of on hold, waiting for some electricity," Keiser said. "It’s in bureaucrat land or politician land. … Bureaucracy and red tape in Wisconsin is non-existent. They say, ‘Build all the golf you want; it’s great for tourism.’"

Woods was reportedly included on the project at the request of President Barack Obama and with the approval of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. The project, which plans to overhaul the area currently occupied by the Jackson Park and South Shore courses, fell under the purview of the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance.

The Tribune report notes several contributing factors to the project’s delay, most notably the priority the city has placed on the construction of the Obama Presidential Center, set to open in 2021 near where the new course would be. According to the Chicago Parks District, the two projects are on different timelines.

"This is a very special project that can have many positive results beyond the game," Woods said in a statement. "I am honored to be part of this initiative. My TGR Design team continues working with the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance to gather feedback from local golfers and other residents who enjoy these parks."

"It was a great showing these last couple weeks by the fans," Spieth said after closing with a 2-under 68, a 5-under total and a T-32 finish. "Obviously extremely appreciative here in DFW. Wish I could do more. These couple weeks can be a bit taxing, and it’s awesome to kind of have that support to carry you through.

"So, you know, I had a great time these couple weeks on and off the golf course as I always do, but I’m also really excited to kind of get out of town and kind of be able to just go back to the room and have nothing to do at night except for get ready to play the next day."

Spieth will have that experience this coming week in Dublin, Ohio, site of the Memorial. He’s hopeful of improving on his T-21, T-32 finishes the past two weeks, and he thinks the main thing holding him back – his putting – is ready for a turnaround.

"I think good things are about to come," he said. "I feel a good run coming for the second half of the season. Today was – each day I’ve felt better and better with the wedges and the putter and the short game; today was no different. My only bogey being just kind of trying to do too much on a par-5; 3-wood into the hazard.

”I know a lot more about my swing now and I guess you get that with age and experience,” the 52-year-old Englishman said after shooting an 8-under 63 on Sunday to win the Senior PGA Championship by four strokes and match the best 72-hole score in tournament history.

Broadhurst earned a career-high $585,000 for his fourth PGA Tour Champions victory and moved to the top of the money list. He won six times on the European Tour, was a 1991 Ryder Cup player for Europe and has three European Senior Tour victories.

Broadhurst started the round two strokes behind Petrovic and McCarron, birdied the first hole and was tied with Petrovic for the lead by the turn. He took his first lead with a birdie on the 12th hole, led by two after 16 and birdied the final two holes, including a dramatic 40-foot putt for birdie at the 18th hole.

”I guess it would have been a bit of anti-climax if I would have three-putted the last green, but that would have given Tim a chance of holing his second shot,” he said. ”I actually spoke to my caddie about that going down the last – we don’t want to three-putt and five him the opportunity because stranger things have happened in golf. To see it go in the middle of the hole was just a special feeling.”

”In hindsight it was all for naught,” he said. ”He was so far ahead of us. Hat’s off the guy. It was a great week – we just got beat. When he made the putt on 18 ahead of us I almost started clapping in the fairway and waving a white towel. It was well-deserved. That was great playing. He won the championship for sure.”

Broadhurst shot 72 in the first round, started rolling in putts with a 66 in the second round and was 15 under on the weekend. In addition to the leading 26 birdies, he topped the putts per greens in regulations numbers for the tournament as well with a 1.574 average.
