The Long Island Golf Association continues to be the heart and soul of amateur golf on Long Island. This week, I spoke LIGA President, Alan Finkelstein. For more information about the LIGA and the Caddie Scholarship Fund, please visit longislandgolf.org. Please give back to the organization that makes local amateur competition a reality for Long Island golfers.
This week's show features 2013 Richardson Invitational winner, Russ Aue. The Richardson Invitational is the Long Island Golf Association's opening event for amateur golf on Long Island. Traditionally played at the Seawane Club, but moved to Engineers Country Club when Hurricane Sandy rendered Seawane unplayable for the Richardson. Russ Aue defeated Hal Berman on the eighteenth green to win his first amateur event.
