The “Winterstone Masters” takes place on the Sunday morning of The Masters, and is part of a unique tournament schedule for the Winterstone Golf Course in Independence. It will be a two-man scramble on different courses, with the more famous one being in Augusta, Georgia.

Even before pain alerts the golfer to strain or injury, knowledge of the body’s movement and ongoing care can insure long-term participation, enjoyment of the game and optimal performance.
