The Barclays will host approximately 600 local youth from nearby The First Tee of Metropolitan New York, several YMCA branches and Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey and the Metropolitan PGA Junior Golf Association on the driving range at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, August 25, for The Barclays Youth Clinic presented by Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield. Matt Every, winner of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, will do a Q&A, hit shots and sign autographs for these local kids as part of the clinic. 
 
As an additional charitable effort, Horizon will present Wyckoff, N.J., native Morgan Hoffmann with a pedometer. For every 10,000 steps that he takes as he walks the course during the tournament, Horizon will donate $1,000 to the New Jersey Golf Foundation in Hoffmann’s name.

There is more to mere beauty at Hidden Creek Golf Club. More, as in sharp teeth. More, as in difficulty, opportunity and challenge.

The Coore-Crenshaw Design annually earns a berth in Golfweek Magazine's Top-100 Modern Courses for a good reason - it is that good of a golf course and a special experience.

This is not a course tricked up for difficulty, it's a course that is designed to give a player multiple options and tournament officials with the same to protect par. Qualifiers to the United States Golf Association's 61st annual Senior Amateur will be bedazzled by the course.

The event, for amateurs ages 55 and above, was captured in 2008 by the Delaware Valley's own and Fox-TVs George "Buddy" Marucci, who is exempt from qualifying and will participate in the championship which opens with two rounds of stroke play qualifying September 26 with the low 64 plays competing in match play until the October 1 final match.. 

"I truly look forward to playing this event, and Hidden Creek is a very special venue," said Marucci, a two-time Walker Cup captain. "It will bring together a field of true amateurs who love the game and will enjoy the competition. Oh, everyone wants to win, of course, or they would not be playing. But it's a little less keyed up than, say, a U.S. Amateur."

After six top-five finishes in major championship since 2011, Australian Jason Day outlasted Jordan Spieth at the PGA Championship by setting a major championship record with a final score of 20-under-par for his third win of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR, putting him at No. 2 in the FedExCup standings. Day will be making his eighth start in The Barclays when he and the top 125 in the FedExCup standings descend on Plainfield Country Club in Edison, N.J., Aug. 25-30.

Day’s victory was the fifth of his career, and first major championship crown, at the age of 27 years, 9 months and 4 days. He also won the Farmers Insurance Open and the RBC Canadian Open earlier this season. At No. 2 in the FedExCup standings, Day is well-positioned for a run in the four-event FedExCup Playoffs.

In a remarkable season, two-time 2015 major championship winner Jordan Spieth nearly captured his third, finishing second at the PGA Championship. With the runner-up finish, Spieth stretched his lead in the FedExCup standings to 1,710 over Jason Day with a record-total of 4,169 points.

JAKE MAYER, 94th JUNIOR CHAMPION, DEDICATES VICTORY TO LATE PRO WES MENSING

Whenever Jake Mayer of Plainfield needed inspiration, he thought of his late instructor at Plainfield, Wesley Mensing, 27, who was killed on Jan. 3 while crossing a street in New York City.

“This season is for him, especially this tournament. The shots weren‘t for me; they were for him,” said Mayer, 16, of Scotch Plains, a rising junior at Pingry School, who edged Dylan Stein of Copper Hill, 1 up, in the 94th NJSGA Billy Y. Dear Junior Championship on Wednesday, July 29, at the Rumson Country Club.

The final was a battle of left-handed golfers. The event is for young men ages 18 and below and not yet in college.

In the 45th  Boys Championship, Jimmy Apostolico of Newton topped Alessandro Lamarca of Valley Brook, 2 and 1. The event is for boys 15 and under.

In the morning semifinals, Mayer ousted top-seeded Chris Gotterup of Rumson, 2 up, while Stein got past Sam Goldenring of Brooklake who...
