The Times-Picayune reports that “Baton Rouge gets Zurich Classic pro-am“. And also “this event will mark the first time in more than 40 years that PGA Tour pros will play in Baton Rouge“. HEY…whether you are going or not, check out their interactive map on the Zurich Classic site. Click on one of the yellow or orange “pins” or “tabs” on the course. Pretty cool FLASH graphics!

Hmmm…what was the last PGA Tour event in Baton Rouge? In the 1960’s? Was it the Baton Rouge Open Invitational? Arnold Palmer won the Baton Rouge Open Invitational twice.

Other Baton Rouge Golf Champions have included Ken Venturi, Jimmy Demaret, Bob Toski, Sam Snead, and Jack Burke, Jr.

The Zurich Classic PGA Tour Pro-Am tournament at University Club on April 22nd will give spectators a chance to see some golf professionals tee it up.

The Zurich Classic begins the following day, April 23rd, in New Orleans. The Official Zurich Classic Website has all the information you need, should you decide to watch in New Orleans.

Louisiana Comes in Last

Houma Today reports, “According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Commission, Louisiana is dead last among states that have primary seat-belt enforcement laws. That means that police officers can stop drivers for not wearing their seat belts.”

And “Do what you can get our state moving in the right direction … safely.”

We wholeheartly agree. Get in the habit, and whether you are driving or not, ask everyone in the vehicle to “please put on your seat belt“.
