Golf Fore A Cause

World Golf Hall of Fame member Gary Player once observed that, “Golf is a puzzle without an answer.” This month, 78 of the best PGA TOUR Champions will try to come up with a solution of sorts … at least to the question of which of them will take home the top prize in the annual Cologuard Classic. The tournament not only allows all of us duffers to get up close with the masters of the game, it’s also a wonderful way for the Tucson Conquistadores to raise money to support youth sports programs. To preview the event, turn to Joan Liess’ story on page 36.

Although the Old Pueblo has earned a reputation as a great golf destination, once upon a time the idea of having a playable course in the middle of desert terrain seemed bizarre. Likewise, you wouldn’t necessarily think that a land-locked place like Tucson would have great seafood. However, restaurants all over town have proved that it’s possible to rival even Coastal towns when it comes to everything from wood-grilled salmon salad, to oysters Rockefeller, to San Francisco pier stew. Kimberly Schmitz reports on some of the tasty dishes, starting on page 48.

It’s a fact of life in our region that there’s a high risk of exposure to the spores in the desert soil that cause Valley fever. A simple daily activity such as gardening can put us in danger of contracting this disease, which can have serious health implications. To find out what you need to know about Valley fever, read Executive Editor Anne Kellogg’s article on page 42.

This is a month loaded with great performances, fundraisers, and community events. Preview some of offerings in Datebook (beginning on page 23) and our Not To Be Missed on page 20.
