Congratulations to Ken Tanigawa, the 2014 AZ Mid-Amateur Champion. who finished seven strokes ahead of the rest of the field.

He continued his stellar play on Saturday – Ken had four birdies and an eagle for the day – a bogey on 11 and an unfortunate double bogey on the final hole resulted in his 3-under par 68.

The Dream of a Lifetime
PICTURE YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS AT THE 2015 MASTERS
Walking the course alongside your favorite golf icon amid the gently rolling green hills surrounded by Georgia pines and flowering trees or seated amongst admiring fans in the gallery on the 18th green watching the final putt; a place on the course at the prestigious Augusta National during the first full week of April is the dream of many golf enthusiasts. This year, the dream came true for those in attendance at one of the premier events of golf’s Grand Slam – The Masters Tournament. ENHANS Events & Sports is ready to make your trip to the 2015 Masters a dream come true, just as they did for many happy clients this year.
The experience of this year’s Masters, held annually on the links of Augusta National, one of the world’s most picturesque courses, delivered all the excitement and wonder one can imagine. Audiences could feel the passionate heartbreak of three time Masters champion Phil Mickelson as he failed to make the cut, the palpable frustration as rookie Jordan Spieth watched his first place position on the leader board slip away, and the fervent exhilaration of Bubba Watson’s second victory and entry into the ranks of golf’s elite.
One of the highlights of the week is the Par 3 Championship held Wednesday on the par 3 course. It’s a family affair featuring both those exposed for the first time to those who have been around for decades – surely entertainment at its highest.
