Far Hills, N.J. - The United States Golf Association's 13
national championships will be highlighted in a 60-minute
television special entitled 'A Celebration of Champions'
to be broadcast on NBC from 1-2 p.m. (EST) on Sunday, Dec.
Hosted by Jimmy Roberts from historic Shinnecock Hills Golf
Club in Southampton, N.Y., site of the 2004 U.S. Open, the
special will feature the winners of the Open (Retief Goosen), U.
S. Women's Open (Meg Mallon), U.S. Senior Open (Peter
Jacobsen) and U.S. Amateur (Ryan Moore). Moore also claimed the
U.S. Amateur Public Links title. There will also be highlights
from the rest of the championship season, including the U.S.
Junior Amateur, won by 15-year-old Sihwan Kim.
You'll also catch the magic of teenage sensations Paula
Creamer and Michelle Wie, who helped the USA team to a win at the
2004 Curtis Cup Match in early June and then shared 13th place at
the U.S. Women's Open a month later, earning exemptions into
next year's Women's Open championship.
