Scottsdale Open Golf Tournament. Pure Golf. Pure Scottsdale.

To paraphrase the King: Golf satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect - both rewarding and maddening at times, it's deceptively simple, endlessly complicated and without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
The field of avid players from 11 states that assembled for the 2018 Scottsdale Open stands as testament to the fact that the game appeals to the best among us and remains in good hands; it's honor and integrity carefully nurtured, it's noble customs and traditions intact.
This year, the Senior Net Division demonstrated the import of "Count 'em All" Sunday as esteemed members of the "Texas Gang", Messr's. Cooke and Wrabel, stormed to victory from their position 6 shots back at the beginning of the final round.
In the Net Division, the Scottsdale-Dallas paring of Messr's. Nordstrom and Michaelis moved out front on Sunday after maintaining a share of second, then first, for two days of play.
The Flora Denton Vessell 2018 Ironman Award was presented to Mr. Bill Pedersen this year, in recognition of his support of the game at large, this event and his tenacious dedication to caring for those close to him; all the simple lessons Flora taught us in 2012.
In the end, the elegant golf course conditions, stellar golf weather and warm camaraderie shared by the tournament players sent everyone home a winner. Well played, gentlemen.

And after the last putt dropped each day, everyone had plenty of time to enjoy Scottsdale's other bests, like the world-class destination resorts, great dining venues and the famous, vibrant downtown Scottsdale nightlife. Click for all the fun.
The tournament players have learned to pace themselves though, as the Scottsdale Open is a thorough test of their competitive nerve and tournament golf skills on three of Scottsdale's finest championship golf courses.
But then again, as Bobby Jones so famously noted: "Competitive golf is played primarily on a five-and-one-half-inch course - the space between your ears."
We look forward to seeing you in Scottsdale.
