Northern Trust / FedEx Golf Tournament – Wonderful Success - August 28, 2017

After months of planning, the final sudden-death round of the Northern Trust ended yesterday on a playoff hole between Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth. The Worlds #1 golfer Dustin Johnson won following a 341 drive. The week-long event, played at the Glen Oaks Golf Club, was also a success for the Club, the PGA and the Old Westbury Police Department – together they worked to ensure that all traffic and safety for the event’s spectators was properly managed. In today’s New York Times the condition of the course was described as “a course with plush fairways, egg-white sand traps and clean sightlines that call to mind Augusta National.”
