On this episode of Next on the Tee I'm joined by 1964 PGA Champion Bobby Nichols and LPGA Class A Teaching Pro Rhonda Ferguson. I'll talk with Mr. Nichols about his memories of that 1964 PGA. We'll hear what it was like being paried with Ben Hogan, starting the final round 1 stroke ahead of Arnold Palmer, and trying to hold off a charging Jack Nicklaus in Jack's backyard at Columbus Country Club. We'll also talk about the influence that Ben Hogan and Dr. Cary Middlecoff had on his career. Plus, playing in the 1967 Ryder Cup in his home state of Texas. Rhonda Ferguson will also join me and we'll discuss her college days playing at the University of Florida. We'll talk about teaching juniors and how she is able to keep them engaged in the game, how she teaches them to handle pressure and what she's doing to bring more women into the game. Rhonda also owns a golf course down in Jacksonville, Florida called River Bend Golf Links. We'll talk about what's inovolved with owning and marketing a course as well.
