Aronimink’s Carson Solien Defends at the PAO Springhaven Classic
Forty two players teed it up during a chilly overcast day at the first individual PAO medal play event of the year held at The Springhaven Club, Wallingford, PA. The 6,170 yard, par 69 course was a challenge for most. Carson Solien from Aronimink CC led the way carding a two under par, 67. Carson had 7 birdies on the day to go along with one double bogey and three bogies.
One behind Carson was Robby Burns of Merion and Kevin Kraft of Bumble Bee Hollow. Robby’s one under round consisted of an eagle on the eighth, with two birdies and three bogies. Kevin also eagled eight and had two birdies to go along with a double and a bogey. Tying for fourth place with even par scores of 69, were Mike Meisenzahl of Shore Gate and Corey McAlarney of Sunnybrook.
The PAO would like to thank the membership and staff of The Sprinhaven Club for their gracious hospitality throughout the day as well as the participants who made the trip to this fantastic event. A special thank you to Ben Debski, Head Professional, and Tom Carroll of Cobra Puma Golf for making this another fantastic event.
Next up on the tournament schedule is the DVO, a combined event with the Section and the PAO, this Monday, May 9th at Concord CC. Hope to see you all there. Full Tournament Results
