'The future looks bright for golf'

Can you believe that The Masters is already next week?! A sure sign of better weather to come. But before we get there, a lucky group of young people will have their moment in the sun at Augusta National. The Drive, Chip & Putt national finals are this Sunday and our fair state is well-represented with THREE participants!

Here are some fun facts about our DCP participants:

-The best piece of golf advice Joey Lenane ever received was: 'Have fun!'
-Joey would serve the following at his Masters Champions Dinner: 'Steak, lobster, and pasta'

Also, if you want a good cry, check out this short profile that The Golf Channel put together on Joey: http://www.golfchannel.com/media/drive-chip-and-putt-meet-joey-lenane/

-Conner Willett thinks that the hardest part about golf is: 'To come back after a bad hole'
-Conner said the best club in his bag is his putter and he always plays ProV1's
-Conner would serve the following at his Masters Champions Dinner: 'Steak and creme brulee'

-Molly Smith would serve the following at her Masters Champions Dinner: 'I would start by serving RobinTales with Pigs in a Blanket and spinach and artichoke dip for our appetizers. Prime rib with baby back ribs and mashed potato. Dessert would be cookie cake or grasshopper pie ice cream from Sullivan Farms ice cream parlor.'
-Molly's favorite part about golf is 'Seeing how much better I'm getting'
-Molly (along with her dad, Phil) is a defending MGA Champion! They won the 2014 Father & Daughter Championship - Forward Division at Wellesley Country Club last August.
