Both attended and played on the Stanford University golf team...separated by 30 years. They collaborated on the design of Spanish Bay, and support each other in all that is golf. But the relationship between the pair transcends the game they each love dearly. They are family.
Sandy Tatum played his beloved Harding Park on Media Day Monday. The event previewed the Schwab Cup Finale on the Champions Tour. He shot his age of 90. Tatum's love affair with golf, and Harding in particular is rooted as deep and strong as the Cypress Trees that border most fairways at the public course which sits adjacent to The Olympic Club in San Francisco which will host next year's U.S. Open. In early November, the 30 top Champions Tour Players converge on the course that Tatum revived. Harding Park was in ill-repair until Sandy Tatum spearheaded an effort to attract marquee Professional Golf Events. The 2005 American Express Classic Dual between Tiger Woods on John Daly first delivered the splendor of Harding to the World, and since has become host to the last Presidents Cup Championship, and now the site for the Champions Tour ultimate stop for Charles Schwab Cup. Mr. Tatum shares some of his passion in the video.
