I wasn't sleeping," he said. However, Tarpon Springs police and city officials say there's more to the story. They say they had an obligation to investigate a complaint that a city employee at a city-owned golf course was violating state laws by directly overseeing gambling and by raffling off a set of golf clubs.
Winship told the Times that about 14 leagues play at the course weekly. League golfers typically pay the normal green fees and cart fees, then put in extra money to be divided at the end of the round. Golfers might get a portion of the pot for lowest round, closest to the pin or lowest score on a hole.
Winship came under investigation after a fired employee directly linked him to the wagering. Ron Moxom, former supervisor of the course's golf shop, sent Winship an email saying, "Each Saturday morning you direct a group of golfers that come only to gamble.
Moxom also raised questions about the golf course raffling off a set of golf clubs in the pro shop. He forwarded the email to the city's administrators and elected leaders, prompting the investigation.

Spieth and Thomas, obviously, make perfect sense, too: It could be fun, but you just have to wait and see, I guess. Spieth enters this Ryder Cup, for the first time, as one of the U. That meant an extra week at home to rest, regroup and reassess. Reed might be one of the few, however, whose recent form can be discounted — like European igniter Ian Poulter, Reed turns into a different dude when Ryder Cup Friday beckons.
Even with his new stature in the game as a major champion, Reed remains motivated by slights, whether real or imagined. He was overlooked as a standout junior; he was overlooked at Augusta State, despite going in NCAA match play; and maybe he was even overlooked in the run-up to the matches at Gleneagles, with his well-established reputation as a talented but combustible personality. I felt like I had to come out and prove to myself that I can go out and play well and win my matches, just to validate that mindset that I have, that I belonged here.
Reed and Spieth thrived together, going as one of the lone bright spots for the Americans. But they also were an unconventional pair with an awkward internal dynamic. They took a break for the Presidents Cup, playing together for just one victorious fourballs match, before settling into their expected roles at both Hazeltine and Liberty National.
Overall, they have been nearly unbeatable together, solidifying themselves as one of the best American duos. For much of the past two decades, the U. Golf Channel's video library has over tips, analyze your swing and take a lesson from instructors.
