*Update 4/27* - LGA/GHIN Mobile App Offline

We realize the past ten days have been challenging for all of you. The LGA understands the importance of the mobile app to the success and goodwill of our membership.  

Per our vendor GHIN, we are close to having solutions in place for bringing the app back to full functionality. However, with this coming weekend being a revision weekend, we want to hold off implementing those solutions so as to protect the integrity of the revision process.   After revisions are complete on May 1, and once full testing of the app and interfaces are complete, we will turn the app back on and closely monitor the platform.  We are hopeful that the app will be back online sometime during the week of May 2nd.

More information on how we will restore GHIN Mobile will be communicated next week.  Thank you once again for your patience and for your continued support of the LGA.

A Brief History of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans

Lafayette, LA        April 26,2016

This year marks the 68th contesting of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.  The tournament began as the Crescent City Open held at City Park Golf Course in 1938.  Since 1958, it has become a regular stop on the PGA Tour.  The Zurich Classic has the distinction of being the 11th oldest PGA Tour stop.  Some of its past champions include: Byron Nelson, Billy Casper, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, and Tom Watson. A side note; there was another professional golf tournament that predated the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. 

In 1922, the Southern Golf Association conducted a professional tournament, the Southern Open at New Orleans Country Club and Gene Sarazen was the winner.  The victory would be Sarazen's first as a professional and propelled him to a one stroke victory over Bobby Jones at the 1922 U.S. Open and a win at the 1922 PGA Championship, which ironically was held at Oakmont CC, this year's U.S. Open site.

Lake Charles CC shot a three-over par 291 in Sunday’s individual stroke play final round, and coupled with their 15-under par 129 in Saturday’s 4-Ball round, they finished at an impressive twelve-under par 420 to win by four strokes over runner-up and 2015 LGA Club Team Champions Oakbourne Country Club of Lafayette.

NEW ORLEANS YOUNGSTER FINISHES T2 AT AUGUSTA NATIONAL

April 3, 2016  Augusta, Georgia 

10-year-old Morgan Guepet of New Orleans finished tied for 2nd place in her age division in the 2016 Drive, Chip, and Putt Championship at Augusta National prior to the start of The Masters. She is one of 80 junior golfers nationwide who competed, and she is the only one from Louisiana.

Morgan advanced through local, sub-regional, and regional qualifiers. She earned her trip to Augusta by winning the regional Drive, Chip, and Putt last year at the Golf Club of Houston, host club of the Shell Houston Open.

Golfers are scored on a series of drives, chips, and putts. The drive and chip skills were conducted Sunday on Augusta’s practice facility. The putting took place on the famed 18th green, where legends like Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus have secured titles and the traditional green jacket that go to the champion.
