Braden Shattuck, PGA, Wins 2022 Jack Jolly & Son Championship
Fleetwood, Pa. (September 19, 2022) — PGA Member Braden Shattuck of Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Pa., turned in a 4-under-par 66 to win the 2022 Jack Jolly & Son Championship at Moselem Springs Golf Club by one stroke over Cedarbrook Country Club’s Andrew Cornish. The tournament is a Philadelphia PGA Rolex / The Haverford Trust Company Player of the Year event.
Shattuck was fortunate to complete his entire 18-hole round before severe weather suspended play for one hour and 41 minutes. He made only two bogies, coupled with six birdies, including on his final three holes. Cornish needed to wait through the weather delay to finish his bogey-free round, ultimately finished behind Shattuck.
“I played very steadily for my first five holes,” Shattuck said after his round. “I made a great par save on No, 6 to keep it going, and made it through hole Nos. 13-15 in 1-over; they played very difficult today.
“It was nice to play well today,” Shattuck continued. “I haven’t played recently, as I injured my back right after the [Philadelphia PGA Professional Championship] and had to withdraw from Q School, but it felt fine today.”
Shattuck went on to thank the membership and staff at Rolling Green, including PGA Head Professional Scott Chisholm, Titleist, Makefield Putters, and our host, Moselem Springs Golf Club, and their membership and ownership.
Michael Young, Brookside C.C., made a run on his final nine, only to finish in third place at 2-under-par following a bogey on No. 18. Zac Oakley, Bidermann G.C.; Nick Iacono, Chester Valley G.C.; and Joanna Coe, Merion G.C.; each tied for fourth place at even par.
In the Senior Division, Applebrook G.C.’s Dave McNabb finished at 1-over-par to finish one stroke ahead of John Allen, Sheftic Performance Center. Five PGA Professionals rounded out the top five at 3-over: John Cooper, Green Valley C.C.; Eddie Perrino, C.C. of York; Rich Steinmetz, Spring Ford C.C.; George Forster, Radnor Valley C.C. and Terry Hertzog.
Bill Sautter, Philadelphia Cricket Club, finished atop the Super Senior Division, bettering Forster by three strokes, followed by Brian Kelly, Jeb Boyle, and Leigh C.C.’s Rick Flesher, who finished seven back.
The Philadelphia Assistants’ Organization (PAO) also hosted a concurrent event, with Andrew Cornish topping the field at 3-under-par, one stroke better than Michael Young. Zac Oakley finished three behind the winners; Kyle Early, Waynesborough C.C.; ended his day at 1-over, while Brian Bergstol, Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort; and Rob Wolfers, tied for fifth place.
