collection of champions, including World Golf Hall of Fame members Jack Nicklaus, Julius Boros, Arnold Palmer, Curtis Strange, Raymond Floyd, Seve Ballesteros, Hale Irwin and Vijay Singh. ■


Coming Soon: The Barclays Arena


Barclays has invested heavily in the New York area with the rotation of The Barclays PGA TOUR event throughout the region and with the opening in Brooklyn of The Barclays Center, a sports arena currently under construction as part of a business and residential complex. It will serve as the home of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets, to be renamed the Brooklyn Nets when the 18,000-seat arena opens for the 2012-2013 season. The Nets’ move would mark the return of major league sports to Brooklyn for the first time since 1957 when Major League Baseball’s Brooklyn Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. The Barclays Center will be located at the


intersection of Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues, an area in close proximity to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, the central branch of the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum.
