There is a TPC course at Piper Glen in Charlotte and another in Raleigh. The staff said Nisbet never worked for Piper Glen but could not confirm whether he ever coached an event there. Police took Nisbet into custody this week in California. He used a lot of the promise of stardom, expensive gifts, said Steve Goard, Livermore Police Department in California. It was just a slow, grooming process in which he knew exactly which kids he could perpetrate this crime and be successful. Authorities the community should be alert because they suspect Nisbet may have other victims across the country, including Charlotte. We dont know if theyll come forward, Goard said.

I would like to congratulate the organizers of the awards for recognizing the achievements of the golf industry, he said. Buamaim, along with Mohamed Alabbar (the Chairman of Emaar), created golf in Dubai to promote Dubai as a leading global golf destination. The event management company, which promotes and organises the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (a premier European Tour event) and the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters (the season-ending Ladies European Tour tournament), has since expanded its role by instigating new initiatives aimed at the overall development of golf in the region. He is credited with taking the profile of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic to a whole new level. The tournament, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2014, has helped shape the careers of many professionals. The Omega Dubai Desert Classic also featured in the awards when one of the tournaments sponsors, Emirates NBD, were recoginised for the ‘Best Golf Sponsorship of the Year’. An irrepressible man not known for resting on his laurels, Buamaim took up the biggest challenge of his career when he launched the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Golf Tour in 2011. Affiliated to the R&A and the Arab Golf Federation, tour, which is the first of its kind in the world open to amateurs, has since grown from four tournaments in the inaugural year in 2011 to 10 in 2013, covering a major expanse of the region, including Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman besides the UAE. No other sporting organisation in the region can stake claim to channeling its resources to promoting the Arab talent in a sport like golf which is quite new to this part of the world and faces its own challenges in luring players in the game.
