Deadline hasn’t changed much in the last 23 years, except Annie has taken over the bulk of the work. But I still write the editorial and help select articles. I often work with my newest assistant, Clara, in my lap. We’re a day away from completing deadline for Issue No. 131.

Derek Ernst of UNLV almost got it done at the 2011 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship, but lost in a playoff to Corbin Mills of Clemson. Ernst, 21, is from Clovis, California, while Mills, 21, is from Easley, South Carolina.
In the 2011 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship, which was held concurrently at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon, Brianna Do, 21, of UCLA, defeated Marissa Dodd, 17, a high school graduate headed for Wake Forest. Do was born in Caliornia but represented her parents’ country of Vietnam, while Dodd is from Allen, Texas.
Here are a few photos:
Derek Ernst of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Corbin Mills of Easley, South Carolina, will be in the 36-hole final tomorrow (Saturday) of the 2011 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort about 50 miles north of BHM. I got to talk with him yesterday after he advanced to today’s final eight contenders. My son, Robby, was a volunteer at the six-day event and was the “standard bearer” for Ernst’s group Friday. Naturally, I talked with the winner afterwards. Very likable 21-year-old. The winner tomorrow will get an invite to participate in the PGA’s Masters Tournament.
If you watch the event live on the Golf Channel, you’ll probably see me, Lenie, and Robby in the crowd. The “standard bearer” tomorrow will be Matthew Anderson, Robby’s high school golf teammate.
