Augusta National, Augusta, Ga.
Jordan Spieth, who grew up playing golf at Brookhaven Country Club in the Dallas area and came close to clinching a green jacket, wasn’t the only fresh face with ClubCorp roots making waves at this year’s Masters. At the inaugural Drive, Chip, and Putt Championship, 11-year-old Leo Cheng, a member at Porter Valley Country Club in Northridge, Calif., won his age division and was presented his trophy by last year’s Masters champ, Adam Scott. Other ClubCorp juniors participating in the 88-player competition were Johanna Alberto from the Clubs of Kingwood near Houston; Emma Costa from Timarron Country Club in Southlake, Texas; Kyle Cox from Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas; and Lauren Freyvogel from Treesdale Golf & Country Club in Gibsonia, Pa. When not watching Spieth or the juniors, members of ClubCorp clubs at the Masters took food and beverage breaks at ClubCorp’s hospitality tent. There, they also test-drove the latest Audi models and tried their hands
at putting and guess-the-tees contests.
