If you were fortunate enough to see some of golf’s legends grace the fairways of Long Island on an annual basis from the late 80’s until the better part of the nineties; then you owe a debt of gratitude to the man who first brought the PGA Tour to Long Island–Gene Bernstein. The former Metropolitan Golf Association President and Northville Industries Corp. Chairman is the man responsible for bringing Long Islanders closer to the legends of the game including the likes of Palmer, Nicklaus, Player and Trevino.
