Fit for the Fairways winner next week

Be sure to catch next week’s edition of “From tee to green” to learn who will be The Union’s “golf guinea pig” in the upcoming “Fit for the Fairways” feature – a six-week series that will track the progress of an area golfer working with Steve Madden of in a conditioning program and picking up tips from our area golf professionals.

The Union received a slew of letters from area golfers interested in participating in the program. Next week, we’ll announce who will be the subject of our sports study.
