Deane Beman to appear Friday at Cannon Ridge

The co-designer and principal owner of Cannon Ridge Golf Club in Stafford County will hold a book-signing at the course’s clubhouse from 10 a.m. until noon Friday, May 27. Golf writer Adam Schupak recently published a book about Beman called “Deane Beman: Golf’s Driving Force.” Beman, who was born in Washington, was the PGA Tour’s commissioner from 1974 to 1994. That followed a successful amateur and professional career that included four PGA Tour victories. During his time as commissioner, he introduced The Players Championship and developed a network of Tournament Players Club courses around the U.S. He is credited with much of the modern success of the PGA Tour. Beman designed Cannon Ridge along with Bobby Weed.

“This is a great opportunity to spend a few minutes with one of our great game’s living legends,” Bart Wolfe, Cannon Ridge’s PGA head golf professional, wrote in an email.
