Tom Kite Collaborations
Achieving worldwide recognition reserved only for a handful of sporting greats, Tom Kite is one of the greatest innovators of the game of golf.  As the first to add a third wedge to his bag and one of the first to use a sports psychologist and to emphasize physical fitness for game improvement, Kite has created a record that is matched by few; and over the course of his career, he (i) won 19 PGA Tour victories, including the 1992 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, and 9 Champions Tour victories, including the 2000 Tradition, (ii) competed on seven Ryder Cup squads, (iii) Captained the 1997 Ryder Cup, and (iv) held the title of leading money winner twice on the PGA Tour.  
What make Tom Kite a great golf course designer is his innovative streak and his passion for learning and not simply the records that he holds.  Each golf course designed by Tom Kite is infused with all of the innovation, passion and consistency that made him a champion on both the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour.  
What’s more, Tom Kite is recognized worldwide as both a gentleman and one of the game’s true sportsmen.  His uncompromising set of values, his disciplined regimen and the standards for quality and perfection that he holds for himself are evidenced by his recognition as the 1979 Bob Jones Award recipient, the highest honor given by the United States Golf Association in recognition of distinguished sportsmanship in golf, and by his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2004.  By incorporating this same manner as both a golfer and a gentleman into each of his designs, Kite insures that each course is worthy of bearing his name.
In his teamings with Randy Russell of RussellGolf Design, LP, each brings a passion for uncompromised excellence,  innovation and classic course design to their collaborations.  Yet through Kite’s vast tour experience and golf course design experience and Russell’s mastery of golf course architecture, environmental planning and golf course management and operations, the skill sets that each bring to their collaborations are a great complement to the other.  The result of their dedication, ingenuity and innovation are spectacular courses, which enhance the natural environment and are both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all abilities.
