Venturi Inkster beaming at Harding Park


SAN FRANCISCO – Ken Venturi and Juli Inkster must have felt right at home as observers on the first tee at Harding Park at the start of Saturday’s afternoon fourball matches at the Presidents Cup.

They both won the San Francisco City Championship, Venturi three times and Inkster twice.

Harding Park, opened in 1925, is a long-time home to the tournament, affectionately called “The City.” It’s one of the oldest local championships.

Venturi and Inkster were among guests on the first tee when Phil Mickelson and Sean O’Hair started their match against Vijay Singh and Tim Clark.
