Paoli, Pa. – The 2018 edition of the Club Car, LLC / Golf Cars Inc. Pro-Official Championship was played Wednesday, May 9 at Waynesborough Country Club. After what seemed like a never ending winter, the nearly 40 teams that gathered at the Chester County golf course were treated to a near perfect spring afternoon. The Pro-Official features one PGA Professional partnered with an officer from his or her facility. The two-person teams compete in a net four-ball competition (better ball of partners).
As scores from the event began to get posted, one team proved too much for the rest of the field. The duo of PGA Professional Dave McNabb and his partner Joe Waterman of Applebrook Golf Club carded a course blistering score of 11-under-par (60) to finish two shots clear of the field and secure their victory at the Club Car LLC / Golf Cars Inc. Pro-Official Championship. The team was led by McNabb who posted a flawless 8-under-par (63) on his own golf ball. However, Waterman netted birdies when the team needed them most helping the pair to walk away with the win. As the winners Applebrook Golf Club will host the perpetual Pro-Official Championship trophy at their facility for the next year and will also receive the use of a utility vehicle from Club Car LLC and Golf Cars Inc. during the 2019 season.
Finishing two shots behind in solo second place was the team from Philadelphia Country Club featuring PGA Professional Scott Reilly and his partner Jim Black. As a team, Reilly and Black carded eleven birdies but a couple of early bogeys proved too much to overcome and the pair ultimately turned in a score of 9-under-par (62).
Taking home the third place prize was a team from Whitford Country Club led by Assistant PGA Professional Matt DiEleuterio along with his partner Todd Cottingham. The pair posted an impressive six birdies and one eagle on the par-4 16th hole en route to a net score of 8-under-par (63). Their score of 8-under-par solidified their top three finish helping them to avoid the logjam of teams that finished at 7-under-par.
