Montreal native Guillaume Beland shot a 95 at Pennsylvania’s Oakmont Country Club — host of nine U.S. Opens and three PGA Championships — and followed his round with a makeshift putting tournament on the practice green alongside 18 other golfers
“Putting levels the playing field,” said Beland, a former PGA Tour promoter.
And an idea was born.
Now, after six years of conceptualizing, Beland is the president of the Major Series of Putting, which began its championship series Friday on the Strip as the most lucrative putting tournament in American history.
