Penn State Alum Prepares for Memorial Tournament

June 2, 2010 in 2-year, 4-year, Alumni

This week the PGA Tour returns to Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, for the Memorial Tournament. CGCS Paul B. Latshaw, director of golf course operations, has the course in great shape. Latshaw is a 22-year GCSAA member with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture Science and certificate in Golf Course Turfgrass Management from Penn State University and a master’s degree in management from Rosemont (Pa.) College. He has the bentgrass greens rolling 13 feet on the Stimpmeter, and the Kentucky bluegrass/perennial ryegrass/fine fescue rough is 3 1/2 inches high. The forecast calls for a chance of scattered storms Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
