A long road to the Masters from Tony Finau’s ‘humble beginnings’ in Salt Lake City


The greens have been skinned, leaving only a sand base on the small, elevated surfaces where Tony Finau learned to chip and putt. Chained baskets serve as targets and numbered signs direct players around the reconfigured disc golf course, although the original nine-hole Jordan River Par 3 layout remains traceable. The landmarks include the mound in the No. 1 fairway that once challenged the PGA Tour’s longest driver to fly his tee shot 90 yards just to get over it.
