Hear Tour Director TJ Shuart on the air with "The Golf Exchange", a golf radio program airing Sunday mornings, 9-11, on 560 WQAM!
"No one will ever have golf under his thumb. No round will ever be so good it could not have been better. Perhaps this is why golf is the greatest of games. You are not playing a human adversary; you are playing a game. You are playing old man par."
"Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening- and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented."
"I never played a round when I didn't learn something new about the game."

Tour Director: TJ Shuart
"The SF AM TOUR is fun. It's competitive golf, with a bunch of good guys, at a great rotation of courses! If you want to sharpen your game, and see how good you can get, you HAVE to play competitive golf, it's why I make sure I play as many of these as I can. The SF AM TOUR is the best local tournament practice you can get, in a relaxed friendly environment."
Rob Bryans, Miami Beach
"The tournaments are very well run, the competition is excellent and we are competing on the best courses in the area. It's a great way to keep your game sharp and tournament ready without having to travel."
Tom Christensen, Coral Springs
"...To have these one-day, weekend events is just great...And I can't say enough about the venues: some top-rated courses that normally wouldn't be available to me."
Doug Phillips, Pembroke Pines
"The SF AM TOUR has been an excellent tour for the locals. This is just what I have been looking for..Being able to play the best courses in South Florida against great friendly competition on weekends...I look forward to playing the SFLAGT every month."
Justin Onorati, Davie
"Playing in organized events against players of the same caliber is what golf is all about. I have practiced and played with friends for years, and playing against my level of competitors brings out the best (and worst) of my game, and this is the reason I play with the South Florida Am Tour"
Todd Williams, Southwest Ranches
