The Match: The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever

 Author Mark Frost at the Ouimet 100 Gala in Boston
 
Tune into 95.9 WATD's The South Shore's Morning News this Thursday, May 23rd at 7:45am during Goldie Bounce Golf to win an autographed copy of Author Mark Frost's book "The Match:  The Day the Game of Golf Changed Forever."  This book chronicles a private match between amateur golfers Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi and Professionals Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan in 1956 at the Cypress Point Golf Club.   On May 17, 2013 World Golf Hall of Famer and 1964 US Open Champ Ken Venturi passed at the age of 82.  Ken undoubtedly met his 3 playing partners at the Gates of Heaven.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Venturi family
