I've mentioned more than once the ties between Pat Finlen, CGCS, The Olympic Club's DGMO, and my hometown of Kansas City. Since the best the Kansas City area can do in terms of professional golf is a Nationwide Tour event, having such a close connection to this week's U.S. Open is a fairly big deal back home.
So, thought I'd share this interview that Pat conducted today with Sports Radio 810 WHB, one of the most prominent sports radio stations in town. Really good, comprehensive interview with host Kevin Keitzman, a big golfer in his own right. And if this doesn't satisfy your U.S. Open/Kansas City needs (yep, I'm milking this for all it's worth), I'll be profiling some of the golf course management professionals from the Kansas City area who've come to the Bay Area to assist Pat with Open prep later today or sometime tomorrow.
