Since I'm a "number guru," let's look at our first quarterly stats. We have averaged 29.5 players per event with a gain of four more
players from last year. We have prize winnings over $3200 which contributed to an increase of $850 over last year. HGL's website spiked 26% with 4961 people visiting in May as last month.
While we are enjoying the fruit of our labor, everyone has a role to play in the successful growth of the league. We have roles and responsibilities as a player and as a manager. Our scorecards have gotten out of control. Be your brother's keeper. Each player must verify his playing partner's card before being handed in. It has to be signed and matched with Golf Genius. I will begin to re-enforce this rule strictly. It's basic math. Accurate scorecard + happy players= happy Tony. It's a "win-win!!"
Now let's get into some numbers of the PGA Championship at Panorama this Sunday. The Panorama PGA was the second-highest PGA tournament payout in the league's history next to the Wilderness in 2021 with a payout over $4400. 12 players had their fingers in the pot. Vincent Gilmore, 1st place winner, and Steve Little, 2nd place finisher, took home about $1000 each. The skins paid $145 each.
Vincent was in total command of this tournament from the very start. His 37 on the front was the lowest in the field. If it wasn't for the minor errors on 17 and 18, it could have been a perfect round of golf. Now, Vincent has removed himself from the category of "the best player to NEVER win a major" and passed it back to Lonnie Knowles. Vincent needs 1 more major to be in the Hall of Fame.
So to sum it all up thus far this season, we are on the right path. I believe we will continue to develop as players and an organization. Congratulations, Mr. Gilmore for this achievement of our 2022 PGA Championship!
