Goal-oriented Mike Marceron reached one of his long-range objectives earlier this month, making it with a week to spare.Marceron, a Montgomery County native, has been a golf professional for 10 years, and early in his career he felt he wanted to be a head professional by the time he was 30. It wasn't exactly life-or-death, but more a level that he believed he'd be ready for by that time.He made it with a bit to spare, as he was named head professional at the new Willow Springs Golf Course two weeks ago, and he turned 30 last week.

Name: Jeff Sprague Job description: Head P.G.A. professional, Willow Springs Golf Course in West Friendship, since August 1995, four years after the 18-hole, executive course opened. Duties include course and personnel administration, merchandising the shop, and coordinating events, outings, leagues, and clinics at the links-style course, complete with heather around some holes and along some fairways. Teaches periodically, though that is diminishing as other duties come to the fore at the privately owned - but open-to-the-public - course.

I hadn't played Willow Springs Golf Course for several years, so it was with renewed interest and a need to practice the shots you don't hit on 450-yard par-4s elsewhere that led me and a couple of friends, Tom and Doug, to visit the course on a cool summer morning. Willow Springs, across Interstate 70 from the Howard County Fairgrounds, attracts golfers of all skill levels. This public course with private ownership is not too tough for beginners and middle-handicap players. But if you lack accuracy and control, it can be trouble, even for long hitters and low han- dicappers.
