Locals giving tours their best shot

Golf in the Northeast, most of us know, comes with limitations. Shorter season, mainly, but also an inability to practice outdoors year-round, a grace period to allow courses to thaw out and return to peak condition, and other cold-weather pursuits jockeying for our time and attention, such as hockey and snow sports.

That hasn’t stopped many with Northeast ties from pursuing dreams of professional golf, and excelling. There might not be an annual crop of local products making a splash on the elite tours, but it has been done, and can be done.
