In the "fourth round" segment of his popular "Tee Time" series for Sacramento public TV station KVIE, Fairwayus + Greens contributor Frank LaRosa travel all over Northern California to reveal why it's among the sport's top regions. He visits San Francisco's Olympic Club to chat with Ken Venturi about the venue's rich U.S. Open history and joins the course's superintendent as they prepare for this year's Open return.
There's also a very moving and enjoyable interview with Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, who reveal how they got involved with the game and why it's brought them together as lifelong friends.
Also: a look at several golf-driven charities; a look at a very special tournament featuring vintage hickory clubs; interviews with country star Clay Walker and others about their love for the game and how they can help change people's lives through Haggin Oaks' Golf and Guitars event; and more.
