Today Is The Day - Play 9

Golf with Two Golfers Holding Club in Fairway

Today is “Play 9 Day,” and if you’re reading this … stop!

Put down your phone or turn off your computer and get out there and play golf! On the heels of a successful first year, the USGA partnered with American Express again to produce the second annual “Play 9 Day.” Today celebrates the many virtues of a nine-hole round. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s great exercise and it’s friendlier on the wallet.

Did you know a majority of golfers view nine-hole rounds as a great way to introduce people to the game? Grab your buddy and show him or her just how great this age-old game is. Don’t delay; enjoy some fun in the sun this afternoon.

And speaking of the sun, it doesn’t set until 8:23 here in Reston, VA. That’s plenty of time for a quick nine.

Golf lost one of its shining stars 19 years ago today. What's your favorite Payne Stewart memory? #gonetoosoon #PayneStewart
