A few weeks back, I had the chance to go cover the Rust-Oleum Championship, a tournament on the Web.com Tour that takes place at Ivanhoe CC in Ivanhoe, IL. During the tournament, I had the chance to walk around and explore a bit of the beautiful course as well as inside of the clean and polished clubhouse.
I also had the chance to interview six of the players on the Tour, two of them were within the Top 25 and another was ranked 31st at the time. Anders Alberton, Bhavik Patel and Jonathan Randolph were these golfers.
Also had the chance to chat with Greg Eason, Andrew Yun and Denny McCarthy.
Here is the playlist of the interviews. Feel free to take a listen.
It was a fun tournament and I hope to get back again next year.

During an interview with Jason Goff and Matt Spiegal on WSCR 670 The Score in Chicago, Gary Player had some words for the Robert Trent Jones Jr links design.
The Black Knight mentioned that Chambers Bay is “the worst golf course I’ve ever seen”. He’s not the only one, as Chambers Bay has quickly become arguably the most controversial course in U.S. Open history.
Some other things that Gary mention were about Tiger Woods’ struggles and how golf needs him. Due to the great young talent in today’s game, I disagree with Mr. Player. If Tiger’s doing well, and in the hunt the that’s just a bonus although I like seeing different winners.
He also mentioned that golf courses need to be shorter and quicker to play which I agree 150,000% with. The USGA has been doing a terrific job promoting the enjoyment of playing nine holes instead of 18 which is a huge plus.

Gotta love Gary Player man and yes Jason Goff, who wouldn’t want to have Gary on every week to talk about life and how to bring the extra swag out to the course?
