Follow Max to the U.S. Open

Max Adler, Class of 2004 and a former member of the Generals varsity golf team, has a plan. He’s hoping to play his way into this summer’s U.S. Open, schedule for mid-June at Bethpage Black in New York. But Max is going to make his run at the tournament in a very, very public way. A writer for Golf Digest and Golf World, Max is dividing his time between reporting for those magazines and chronicling his own attempt at qualifying for the Open in a series of online diary entries. As Max explains in his first entry, the Open is just what it says it is — open to any golfer who can qualify. Of course that’s easier said than done, but Max also pointed out that 36 golfers made it through qualifying and into the field ast year, so who’s to say that Max can’t get there this time. So far you can read three of Max’s diary entries, including his round with borrowed clubs in New Zealand, and you can watch a short video of Max’s swing (in the snow of his home town of Stamford, Conn.) So stay tuned and let’s see if a former General will be able to join Tiger, Phil, and the rest on Bethpage Black this summer.

    Go Max! I had the pleasure of teeing it up with Max on the W&L golf team my freshman year. He is a great player, scholar, and excellent writer. Too bad he hits his drive 200 yards! (Just messing) Go Max!
