4 Pro-Am weeks in a row... First in Tucson, then 3 in Vegas. 4 excellent events... all with full fields. We are thankful! So many happy golfers with smiling faces! We are thankful! Wonderful partners in Tucson (Casino Del Sol Resort/Sewailo GC) and in Las Vegas (The JW Marriott Resort/Rampart Casino & the Red Rock and Siena golf courses). From Tommy and Gayle & Jeff and Rebekah, we so appreciate the support and participation of all the professional golfers who put together such amazing teams of amateur partners to make for such fabulous golf experiences! See you in the Fall!

Dennis Bradley is truly a man for all seasons! Dennis has been a Class A Member of the British Columbia PGA for 28 years, and is currently the Director of Instruction at Copper Point GC, Invermere, B.C. He is a fabulous player who averages 67 in every Tommy Thomas Pro-Am in which he has participated over the past 7 seasons. But playing ability is far from the only thing Dennis excels in. Here are some of his most recent accomplishments in advancing and promoting the game of golf in Canada: Dennis received the Davie Black Award for Player Development in B.C., which enabled him to be recognized as 1 of 4 finalists for the Tex Noble Award for Player Development nationwide. He was also named Teacher & Coach of the Year for the B.C. Interior and Kootenay region. On top of that, he was named Ping Clubfitter of the Year for British Columbia. As busy as you think Dennis would be, he still has time to coach Special Olympics golfers in British Columbia. We are proud to know Dennis, and to get to meet the wonderful amateur partners that accompany him to our Pro-Ams. Well done Dennis!!

I wanted to take a moment to thank the many golf professionals and their amateur partners who have made our Tommy Thomas Pro-Ams an overwhelming success, not only for the upcoming season, (all 8 events boasting full fields) but for the previous 12 seasons as well. Because of this I have some exciting news to share with you all.
My partner, Jeff Johnson and I are adding a 9th event to our current schedule... A "March Madness" Tommy Thomas Pro-Am in Las Vegas March 14-17, 2022.
Once again, we will be at the JW Marriott Resort & Rampart Casino in Las Vegas for our tournament headquarters. We will be playing the Red Rock Arroyo and Mountain courses for the actual Pro-Am tournament. I can't think of a better place to be for March Madness than in Las Vegas at the Rampart Casino and their brand new sports book...while participating in a Tommy Thomas Pro-Am. That is a parlay that you cannot lose on!
Please understand, one of the many reasons we are offering this event is because we had to turn away approximately 25 to 30 teams this winter because they were too late to enter one of our events. They sold out quickly and you can be sure this one will too! So, get your team organized right away and join us for all the fun!

Former LPGA Tour Player and current Golf Instructor at Mistwood GC near Chicago, Illinois Nicole Jeray finished in a tie for 24th place today at the 2021 United States Senior Women's Open Championship at Brooklawn CC in Fairfield, CT. Nicole fired rounds of 71-76-75-73 for a 295 total in this USGA Major event won by the great Annika Sorenstam. Nicole and her team of ladies participated in the Spring 2021 Tommy Thomas Las Vegas Pro-Am, and had a memorable experience! We look forward to their return... Congratulations Nicole on a fabulous week in Connecticut!

Frequent Tommy Thomas Pro-Am participant Bob Sowards, Director of Instruction at Kinsale Golf and Fitness Club in Powell, Ohio, tied for fifth place Sunday at the KitchenAide Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
With rounds of 67-75-70-67, Bob's finish earned him a check for $106,000, the second-best financial finish of his career. He won $120,000 in the Greater Greensboro Open on the PGA Tour in 2008. After the round, he told the PGA of America the winnings would help pay for some of his daughter’s college. (His daughter Jordan will attend Arizona State in the fall). Congratulations Bob on a truly fantastic week competing with the greatest players in Senior Golf!

Best wishes to Tommy Thomas Pro-Am participant golf professional Keith Clearwater as he competes on the PGA tour this week in the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial CC in Fort Worth, TX. Keith is a past champion at Colonial, winning the event in 1987 with a 14 under par 266, which tied the previous tournament record held by Corey Pavin. Keith won twice on the PGA Tour during his career, and also shot a 64 in the third round of the 1987 U.S. Open which tied the course record at the Olympic Club, and is 1 shot off the all time U.S. Open record. Keith and his team from California have joined us twice for recent Tommy Thomas Las Vegas Pro-Ams. We are pulling for you Keith! Maybe a bit of Phil Mickelson magic will rub off on Keith this week, and the golf world will be shocked two weeks in a row!

Mark it down... A new event... March 15-18, 2021. Yes, that makes 4 in a row this spring in Las Vegas! Well, the first 3 sold out so quickly, we had to do something, so our friends and partners at the Las Vegas JW Marriott Resort & Spa/Rampart Casino, and at the magnificent Clubs at Red Rock golf courses have graciously allowed us to add a fourth event at short notice. We appreciate the favor they show us, and we also greatly appreciate the support and continued participation from our golf professionals and their amateur partners. We couldn't do it without them... We are THANKFUL!

Wonderful Back to Back Full Field November 2020 Las Vegas Pro-Ams are in the books... and what fun they were! Sunny skies, great golf conditions, sumptuous meals, and super nice people typified what Tommy Thomas Pro-Ams are all about! Even though our loyal Canadian teams were not able to cross the border to join us, our United States contingent did not disappoint. Special thanks go out to our tremendous hosts at both the Las Vegas JW Marriott Resort/Rampart Casino and the Red Rock Golf Club for being both accommodating and creative during this unique time in our world. We have a great "template" for our Las Vegas Pro-Ams, and we will enjoy more oportunities to put it to use as we look forward to at least 3 more sold out Spring events in Las Vegas.

Sunny skies and mid 70's temps bathed 22 teams on Thursday, March 12 as we completed a wonderful Pro-Am at the Red Rock Golf Courses in Las Vegas. The greens were perfect...slick, smooth, and very receptive! Team Bill Whaley won the 1,2,3 Net Best Ball event by one shot over Team Jane Sirmons. The top 9 teams were paid daily, and just about every team was in the $$ at least once. Every shot made a difference, as the scoring was very tight and bunched each round. The Las Vegas JW Marriott was a fabulous host, with showstopping dinner parties, and out of this world breakfast buffets. The 12th season of Tommy Thomas Pro-Ams will commence back in Las Vegas with back to back events November 9-12 & November 16-19. Come join us, won't you?
