Near Plano? Get Tips from Justin Leonard

DFW resident Justin Leonard (he's a member at The Vaquero) will appear at the Golfsmith in Plano on Monday, May 2, 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., at a Nike Golf Demo Day. Leonard will be giving swing tips to golfers who show up to demo Nike products. There are some good door prizes, too. The Golfsmith is at 900 Central Expressway. Call 972-424-4823 for more info.

Justin in good at these kinds of events. I spoke with him at a PGA Tour event media day where he was the defending champion. (It's common for the defending champ to be present at media day, where media members get to play the golf course a month or two prior to the tournament. The defending champ usually tours the course in a golf cart, stopping and chatting with each foursome and sometimes hitting a shot or two). He chatted us up and read our putts for us, then put a 45-footer of his own right in the center of the cup.
