In 1996 two golfing buddies from Syracuse, NY decided to start a major golf tournament in Pennsylvania with no money, locations or even golf courses. They would boldly call it the Penn Masters. Sixteen guys showed up in the historic hamlet of Hersey and had the time of their lives. Twenty years later 100 players comprised the field for the 20 th Penn Masters. Through rain, sleet, high winds, glaring sun, fueled by booze, competition, friendship and a love of the game, they keep the traditional alive and well.
This is the story of the Penn Masters over twenty years of family, friends and camaraderie – includes three rounds over three golf courses for four days of high stakes and debauchery, wild nightlife and intense rivalry to gain the famed Brownie Jug. Also included is the unveiling of a Ted Amidon Handicap Trophy, the Welcome Dinner, Champions Dinner, a complete history of the Penn Masters with archival material lent by the players, and tributes to those who’ve come before. Interviews with many of the participants, including Co-Founder and Chairman Don Brown, Co-Founder George
Blasiak, original members like John “Wally Wallace”, Brian McClaughlin, Dick Bourassa, and nine-time champion, Ed Brown.
Music by The Clash, The Who, The Allman Brothers, Steely Dan, Bobby Darin and more.
The swings…the laughs…the tears.
This is the Penn Masters 20th Anniversary Film.
