Pga tour returns to boston, uk, dallas and other cities
(April 8, 2000) A record 2.5 million people turned out for the 10th edition of the International PGA Tour, a record that's made it impossible for the average man to play a round. And while the world may never see the Tour as a traditional showcase of golf's elite, one man is already living up to his promise.
Pamela Guggenheim, 61, is a New York, New York, native who grew up in Los Angeles. She's represented nearly every major champion she's played in -- with some big egos -- and she won the 2002 Ryder Cup and the 2005 PGA Tour Championship. Since her retirement, she has coached both the U.S. Women's National Team and U.S. Open, served as the director of golf development for the Masters and Doral golf courses, and is chairman of the golf board for the Golf Channel.
As a father of two daughters, she's been involved in golf in various ways for years. For one, she became one of the only women in the past decade to win a Masters title. For another, she was at the helm of the National Women's Open that season, and she was a featured executive producer of the Masters tournament. She's been in various leadership roles in golf for years, including one of the most prominent role models to ever hit a fairway -- and perhaps ever will.
She's earned many honors for her accomplishments and her golf, such as the Masters Championship trophy in 1996 and the PGA Tour Championship trophy in 2000. She once said, "I've always been a professional golfer and I love golf. I love to play it. I love it and I know when I play it, it is my first time. I don't regret it. I'm one of the fortunate ones.
"And I love what it is today. My oldest daughter just told me, I'm proud to be a mother."
To celebrate her life and accomplishments, here's a collection of golf photos of the first female PGA Tour Director:
The first one was taken when she was 17 -- when she was helping her father put some of the first greens together for his club.
This is the woman to whom Tom Woods gave his first win on the greens in 1972. After that, she was there all the time with him.
This is a look at her work as a mentor and a friend. She helped take a young player and turn his dream life into a reality.
This is where she made her greatest impact.
This is her first appearance on the tour, at age 65
Stevedores return to work at dampier port for 3 days. A week later, they're back at work at sea again. And the ship is still moored by its dock where the workers and equipment can be found at the water's edge.
Damping was installed by the government to improve the ship's stability for the crew's safety. The equipment isn't cheap:
The contractor costs around $2 million US. But the workers in this case make less than $1 a day in compensation. Damping works by moving sand from the ocean floor up to the ship's deck so that it can be pressed out in heavy seas.
On that day, the ship is drenched from head to toe. "The water's not cold or dirty, but it's kind of cool," says Edie. It's also a wet job. So it's almost like they're in a movie set, being carried up and down by the wind and the waves. It's just awesome.
Some folks were upset that this wasn't posted on the ship's website, but there's not an official report of it. But there was some outcry about the lack of this information:
Some were confused by the absence of a list of compensation claims in the official report. This is something we didn't find. Some also noted that the shipping industry is one of our nation's largest employers. I'm not a journalist, so don't go looking for that info yourself. But it would certainly be nice to see some detail on this, since the only thing I know about this was from a story I've read on an intern who was on board. You can read that story here. It wasn't posted on the ship's website.
That sounds to me like people were concerned about not seeing it, but it's still one of the better examples in recent memory.
Edie has been working in the marine industry her whole life. She now has her own personal blog, where she talks about the ship work and its challenges. Her posts are available on her website, and she even got the chance to film some of it in action for The Next Web.
