Buick Open Information
The Buick Open is a golf tournament, which makes part of the PGA Tour (the Professional Golfers Association). The golf matches are usually played at Warwick Hills Golf Country Club, which is situated in Grand Blanc, Michigan. The Buick Open is usually held after the Open Championship and before the PGA Championship. And mainly for that reason many famous golf players regard this tournament as warming-up between the major golf tournaments. The Buick Open is one of the three sports events on the PGA Tour sponsored by the Buick Company.
The first matches were held at Warwick Hills, located in Grand Blank. Beginning from 1969 the Buick Open matches fell off the PGA tour program and several unofficial golf events took place. The majority of them were held at Flint Elks Country Club (also located in Grand Blanc). Only eight years later, in 1977, the Buick Open was again included in the PGA schedule, and in 1978 the event returned to Warwick Hills Country Club. The Buick Open matches are still played there.
There are several interesting traditions connected with the Buick Open. The 17th hole at the Warwick field has one of the most impetuous galleries, where lots of fans gather to welcome their favorite golfers. Fans sometimes invent special short songs which are directed at particular players, thus making a real fun to see the competition. The hole is also famous by its cocktail parties, which are the largest outdoor cocktail parties all over the world. Many golfers love the tournament because of the special atmosphere it creates. John Daly admits that it is a wonderful contest to compete at, and it isnt a beer drinkers tournament.
During its history the Buick Open has changed several names. The first game was played in 1958, and it was called the Buick Open Invitational. In 1970 and 1971 no Buick Open golf tournaments were held. The tradition was renewed in 1972, when the competition became known to the public as the Vern Parsell Buick Open, and in 1973, it was renamed into the Lake Michigan Classic. From 1974 till 1976 the tournament was called the Flint Elks Open, and in 1977 simply the Buick Open (the present name). The following three years the name was changed to the Buick-Goodwrench Open. From 1981 the tournament finally got the current name, the Buick Open.
The most prominent professional golf players, who took part in the Buick Open, include Billy Casper, Art Wall, Bill Collins, Tony Lema, Dave Hill, Bobby Cole, Jack Newton, Peter Jacobsen, Hale Irwin, Denis Watson, Chip Beck, Fred Couples, Woody Austin, Justin Leonard, Vijay Singh, Billy Mayfair, Kenny Perry, Jim Furyk, the legendary Tiger Woods, and many more.
