Team USA makes its bid to win back Llandudno Trophy in showdown with Great Britain & Ireland in the 28th PGA Cup

OTTERSHAW, Surrey, England (Sept. 14, 2017) – For those American players present two years ago, watching their Great Britain & Ireland counterparts taking turns leaping into a pond by the 18th green at CordeValle in San Martin, California, was unsettling.

The first U.S. loss on home soil in PGA Cup history stung, and now sets up a compelling weekend nearly 27 miles southwest of London. The 28th PGA Cup, the premier international event for PGA Club Professionals, opens Friday at Foxhills Club & Resort’s Longcross Course.

The U.S. owns a 17-6-4 series lead since the event began in 1973, and is 6-5-1 on the road in the chase for the Llandudno International Trophy.

To set the stage for Friday morning’s four-balls, the Americans got a heavy dose of encouragement following Thursday’s opening ceremony. They viewed a video in the Team Room featuring Jack Nicklaus, Paul Azinger, Dave Stockton, Lee Trevino, Ben Crenshaw, Maj. Dan Rooney, Golf Channel announcer/North Florida PGA Member Charlie Rymer and reigning PGA Champion Justin Thomas.  

If that wasn’t enough, U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Jim Furyk dialed in from Florida, asking the team to “set the winning plate for us as we come over next year.” Furyk closed by saying, “Play your own game. I promise you it’s good enough.”

PGA of America President and U.S. Captain Paul Levy of Indian Wells, California, said he likes what’s he’s seen in his team during practice.

“We have five veterans that have played in these matches before and five who haven’t. But there are also a lot of mature guys,” said Levy. “It’s not like we have a team of 25-year-olds. We have got a lot of experienced players – even those who haven’t played in the match before – who have been top-notch club professionals, tour experienced-type players. So we are excited. We think we’ve got a great team.”

Among the veterans is a twosome who competed at CordeValle in 2015: reigning PGA Professional Champion Omar Uresti, a PGA Life Member from Austin, Texas; and Jamie Broce of Indianapolis, the new head men’s and women’s golf coach at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

“I feel like I take a lot of responsibility for my singles match in 2015,” said Broce. “I played great, and the guy I played made two eagles and three birdies in the last eight holes on me. He won the match and he really played well. I think their whole team played well and they earned it. We didn’t give them anything. For us to come over here to reclaim the Cup, we’re going to have to earn it. We’re not going to be able to back into anything.”

This marks Uresti’s third international team event, having competed in the Japan Friendship Matches as a junior at the University of Texas. “We definitely want to win the Cup back. To be on the first team that lost the Cup on U.S. soil was disappointing,” he said. “They have good players on their team and we have good ones on ours. We’ll be playing a course that is narrower than the old U.S. Open courses we’ve played.”

The 6,751-yard, par-72 Longcross is deceptively inviting in length, but has been honed to the specifications of Great Britain & Ireland Captain Albert MacKenzie. The fairways, according to Foxhills Director of Golf Chris Fitt, “have been pinched to provide bottlenecks” as a defense to the longest hitters.

There are no par-4s over 400 yards on the back nine, which leads to a shotmaker’s course and ideal for match play.    

Great Britain & Ireland’s original plan was to utilize the longer Bernard Hunt Course. Both courses are well known to PGA Members here, as they host the annual Senior PGA Professional Championship.

“We just felt the Longcross Course was a little bit more British in its nature, where precision may be par around that course,” said MacKenzie, who was vice captain to winning 2015 Captain Jon Bevan. “Aesthetically, it’s easier on the eye and would provide a great theater for match play and the opportunity for more birdies on the back nine.

“Having been here the last four years for the British Seniors Championship, and finishing runner-up here in 2014, I am very fond of Foxhills. It is a wonderful resort, and offers virtually anything you want.”

MacKenzie doesn’t hide the fact that planning two years ago was paramount to bringing momentum to Great Britain & Ireland. “That was a great week,” said MacKenzie, “Jon (Bevan) was an inspirational Captain. We prepared very thoroughly. I would say the year before the PGA Cup, Jon and I had spoken 250 of the 365 days. It was a fantastic journey. We put a lot of effort into it. We had a template that we studied very closely for what happened in CordeValle and I pretty much used my personal twists.”

For Levy and his team, the task was aligning compatible partners who could mount a challenge. He also will call upon veterans in two-time PGA Professional Champion Matt Dobyns of Glen Head, New York; Mark Brown of Oyster Bay, New York; and 2013 PGA Professional Champion Rod Perry of Port Orange, Florida.

“It’s really exciting to represent your country. It’s a great honor, It’s something that most people don’t get to do very often,” said Dobyns, a PGA Head Professional at Fresh Meadow Country Club in Lake Success, New York. “It’s also to be on a team, which in golf we don’t get to do very often. It brings back a lot of good memories from college. Being in England, adds another dimension to it, taking a special trip and kind of living the life of a tour player is really exciting and something we all cherish.”  

Perry arrived Wednesday morning, having secured his family and home following the passing of Hurricane Irma. He was one of the fortunate to get early clearance for a flight from the nearby Orlando International Airport. The PGA Head Professional at Crane Lakes Golf & Country Club in Port Orange, who missed two days of practice here, was not using any excuses.

“I was ready to play and really enjoyed my time around the course. Playing with Jamie (Broce) was a lot of fun,” said Perry, who competed in 2013 at Slaley Hall in Northeast England, when the U.S. forged a tie to keep the Cup for two more years. “We know we are in for a tough match.”

Brown, a 51-year-old PGA Head Professional at Tam O’Shanter Club in Glen Head, New York, last competed in the PGA Cup in 2000. He’s a three-time runner-up in the PGA Professional Championship.

“When we get on the course, we’re pulling for each other,” said Brown. “When you see that flag on the back of your shirt, it is really a special honor. Hopefully, we’ll take care of business.”  

Levy said that he is pleased with the pairings that have come together through the practice rounds.

“The most important things about putting people together are all about relationships. After three days, we have a good idea and two players and want to win a match,” said Levy. “The golf course is very narrow and some areas the rough is tough. When it’s all said and done it’s about getting the ball in the hole faster than the other.”

The U.S. PGA Cup “rookies” include 2016 PGA Professional Champion Rich Berberian Jr. of Hooksett, New Hampshire; Paul Claxton of Claxton, Georgia; Dave McNabb of Newark, Delaware; Adam Rainaud of Chester, Connecticut; and Josh Speight of Locust Hill, Virginia. 

“When my brother and I found out that I had made the team, it was the most pumped up that I have been,” said Rainaud, a PGA Assistant Professional at Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York. “We get the camaraderie of the team and are friends forever.” 

It’s been a season of major highs for McNabb, who competed in the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, was runner-up to Uresti in the PGA Professional Championship; and added appearances in the U.S. Senior Open and the PGA Championship.

“I think this would be one of the highlights of my career, to be one of the top 10 PGA Professionals in the country and to represent my country,” said McNabb, the PGA Head Professional at Applebrook Golf Club in Malvern, Pennsylvania. “I think we have to play good solid team golf and bond together as a unit to get the job done.”

Dave Quinn Captures Philadelphia Senior PGA Professional Title; Earns Berth in 29th Senior PGA Professional Championship

VILLANOVA, Pa. August 22, 2017 – Dave Quinn of (Marlton, N.J.), winner of the Philadelphia Senior PGA Professional Championship August 21-22, 2017 at Radnor Valley Country Club will lead eight Philadelphia PGA Professionals to compete Sept. 28 – Oct. 1, in the 29th Senior PGA Professional Championship.

The national Championship, presented by Mercedes-Benz USA and supported by Golf Advisor and John Deere, will be held at Desert Mountain’s Cochise and Geronimo Courses in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Quinn turned in a winning total of 5-under-par 135 to capture the Philadelphia Senior PGA Professional Championship supported by Golf Advisor and Mercedes-Benz USA. Dave McNabb of (Newark, Del.) finished one strokes back at 4-under-par 136. They are joined by George Forster (Blue Bell, Pa.), John Pillar (Hawley, Pa.), Greg Farrow (Marlton, N.J.), Stu Ingraham (Broomall, Pa.), Wayne Phillips (Allentown, Pa.), and John DiMarco (Cherry Hill, N.J.)

The Senior PGA Professional Championship brings together a field of 264 contestants representing the PGA of America’s 41 nationwide Sections, and features a total purse of $300,000. The first two rounds will be conducted on the Cochise and Geronimo Courses. The first cut will be made after 36 holes of play to the low 90 players plus ties.  The second cut will be made after 54 holes of play to the low 70 players plus ties.  The final two rounds will be played on the Conchise course.

The Cochise and Geronimo Courses, each Jack Nicklaus designs, present a wide-ranging test of skill. The Cochise Course’s par-72 layout can be extended to 7,042 yards with the Sonoran desert touching on every side. From 2012-2016, the course was host to the PGA Tour Champions season-ending Charles Schwab Championship, and it is a former site of The Tradition, one of five major championships on the PGA Tour Champions. The Cochise Course features four premier “risk-reward” par-5 holes, along with rolling fairways surrounded by water and dramatic rock outcroppings.

The Geronimo Course is perhaps the most visually intimidating of six courses at Desert Mountain, and chosen one of the Most Challenging Golf Courses in Arizona by the Phoenix Business Journal. The par-72, 7,293-yard layout winds its way through dramatic boulders, deep washes, ravines and lush desert and over stunning plateaus.

Begun in 1989, the Senior PGA Professional Championship is modeled after the PGA Professional Championship, with a field of 50-and-older senior PGA Professionals who advanced through 41 Section Championships conducted from June through August this year.

The top 35 finishers in the national Championship earn a berth in the 79th KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, which will be conducted in May 2018, at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

The top five finishers earn an exemption into the final stage of the 2018 PGA Tour Champions National Finals. Since its debut, many participants in the Senior PGA Professional Championship have used their success in the event as a springboard to a PGA Tour Champions career.

Lennon/Brinker Go Low to Win the Pro-Junior Championship

West Chester, PA. – On a beautiful Thursday afternoon the Philadelphia PGA held the annual Pro-Junior Championship at Concord Country Club. The Championship pairs one PGA Professional with one amateur, male or female, 18 years of age or younger. In addition to being a competitive event that allows the junior golfer to experience a Philadelphia PGA Professional tournament, the Championship is also about camaraderie between PGA Professionals and the junior participants.

The Championship is played better ball of partner’s Net event (with amateurs getting 80% of their handicap), but a Gross division is also added, with teams only allowed to earn prizes in one division.

The tournament was a 1pm shotgun. As the scorecards were turned in, Mark Sheftic (Merion GC) and his amateur partner Kevin Smith posted the score to beat in the Net Division with 9-under par total of 62. After Sheftic thought all odds were in his favor Bob Lennon (Wilmington CC) and his amateur partner Ty Brinker managed a 10-under par 61 (29-32) to win the Net Division.

Although Bob Lennon and his amateur partner were first in the Net Divison they also finished on top in the Gross Division. With the teams ahead of them winning more in the Net Division, the team of Hugh Matthis (Tavistock CC) and partner Mary McGuinness won the top spot in the Gross division with a 6-under 65.

The Philadelphia PGA would like to thank the staff of Concord Country Club for helping make this event successful today. The next event on the Philadelphia PGA’s schedule is Philadelphia Senior PGA Championship on August 21-22 at Radnor Valley Country Club in Villanova, Pa.

Brian Bergstol Wins Rain-Shortened National Car Rental Philadelphia Assistant PGA Championship

Philadelphia Pa. –On a rainy Monday morning nearly 75 Philadelphia Assistant PGA Professionals converged on the newly renovated Union League Golf Club at Torresdale for the National Car Rental Philadelphia Assistant PGA Professional Championship. With weather threatening the tournament, all competitors did their best to battle both the difficult course and the rainy conditions as they tried to play their way into this November’s 41st National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship to be at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla, November 9-12, 2017.

Quickly as the scorecards came in Brian Bergstol (Bangor, Pa.) would go to the top of the leaderboard with a score of -2 under par 68. Bergstol carded one birdie on the first hole, then, added three more birdies on the back nine. With only two bogies the whole day in nasty weather conditions Bergstol did better than everyone and ended  the day with the title of champion.

“My caddie asked me if he wanted him to come out today, and I told him no because it didn’t make sense in this weather, I usually complain to him in weather like today but because he wasn’t there I just kept playing, and I guess that worked in my favor today,” Brian Bergstol stated.

Billy Stewart (Devon, Pa.) the only other player under par, fell one shot short with a -1 under par 69. Stewart had back to back birdies on holes one and two followed by another birdie on hole 5.

By winning Bregstol qualified for the 41th National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship, Nov. 9-12, at PGA Golf Club (Wanamaker Course) in Port St. Lucie, Fla. The facility will be hosting its twenty-second consecutive Assistant PGA Professional Championship.

“Mission accomplished,” said Bergstol when asked how it feels to qualify for this year’s Assistant PGA Professional Championship. “I wouldn’t say I played the best that I could have and I would have loved to play this course again in better weather conditions; I was only in the rough once which helped in these conditions; although I would have loved to play 36 today I’m happy with how the day turned out.”

Bergstol and Stewart will be joined at November’s Championship by fellow Assistants Jakob Gerney (Sewell, N.J.) who finished with an even par (70), as well as Andrew Turner (Honey Brook, Pa.), and Jordan Gibbs (Philadelphia, Pa.) who posted a score of 1-over (71).

The Philadelphia PGA would like to thank the membership and staff of The Union League at Torresdale as well as tournament sponsor National Car Rental, and our presenting sponsors Srixon, Cleveland Golf, XXIO, Golf Advisor, John Deere, and PGA Tour. The next event of the Philadelphia PGA calendar is the Pro-Junior Championship at Concord Country Club this Thursday August 10.

Teams from Radley Run & Tavistock Lead the Way at Pro-Assistant-Pro Championship

Galloway, N.J. – On a beautiful mid-summer afternoon, 187 PGA Professionals and Assistant PGA Professionals descended upon the New Jersey shore and Seaview Resort for the annual Pro-Assistant-Pro Championship. This event pairs the highest ranking PGA Professional at a given facility with each of his or her PGA Assistant Professionals in a better ball of partners event. The tournament was held on both the Bay and Pines course at Seaview Resort with prizes awarded on each course separately.

Leading the way on the Bay course was the team from Radley Run Country Club featuring John Kellogg and Brett Melton. As a team the duo posted two eagles, both carded by Kellogg, and six birdies to finish with a team total of 10-under (61). The score was good enough for a three shot victory over the pair of Paul Viola and Alex Knoll from Bethlehem Golf Club who finished at 7-under (64).  Three teams finished tied for third place after posting scores of 6-under (65). The group featured Tom Michaels and Ben Bewley of Bershire Country Club, Michael Ferguson and Tony Perla from Philadelphia Cricket Club, and Chris Wilkinson and Jared Murosky of Llanerch Country Club.

The Pines Course also featured a clear cut winner after the team of Hugh Matthis and Greg Matthias from Tavistock Country Club finished with a score of 8-under (63). The pair played bogey free while adding eight birdies to give them a two-shot victory over the field. A trio of teams posted scores of 6-under (65) to finish tied for second place. The first team to get to 6-under was Linda Nevatt and Billy Stewart from The ACE Club while the remaining two teams were both from Indian Springs Golf Club. Curtis Kirkpatrick paired with both Steve Sieracki and Brett Fernandes to finish in the second place tie.

The Section would like to thank our sponsors Cutter & Buck, Golf Max, Country Club Editions, and the PGA Tour for supporting this great event. The next event on the Philadelphia PGA calendar is Thursday’s Skee Riegel Senior Open at Radnor Valley Country Club on Thursday, August 3.

Figueroa Captures the Doylestown Open for First Philadelphia PGA Win

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. – The 2017 edition of the Doylestown Open was once again played at Doylestown Country Club on Friday, July 28. The Doylestown Open is a one-day stroke play event that featured 80 PGA Professionals and three amateur golfers. The tournament served as the 10th event in the race for the Omega Player of the Year presented by Haverford Trust.

Playing in the tournament’s first pairing, Brett Melton (Radley Run Country Club) posted an impressive score of 5-under (67) to lead the way early. On his round, Melton had seven birdies against two bogeys to give a number for all other competitors to chase.

However, it wouldn’t be long until a player from the field would post a number better than Melton’s 5-under. Playing only two groups behind Melton, Eric Figueroa (McCall Golf & Country Club) got off to a hot start with five birdies and only bogey through his first nine holes to make the turn at 4-under.

“I knew I had something going when I made the turn at 4-under,” commented Figueroa on his round. “I knew that if I could finish the last nine holes at even par I would have a pretty good finish.”

Fortunately for Figueroa his inward nine would yield more than just even par. After a bogey on the 11th hole, Figueroa would post three consecutive birdies on holes 13-15 to finish with a tournament total of 6-under (66), one shot better than Melton. Unfortunately for Figueroa he would now have to wait more than six hours to see if his number would be good enough for his first tournament win.

The first person to make a run at Figueroa at the top of the leaderboard was defending Philadelphia PGA champion Jordan Gibbs (Gulph Mills Golf Club). Gibbs. Despite having enough birdies to overtake Figueroa, three bogeys, including two late, kept Gibbs from the top of the leaderboard and ultimately he finished in solo fourth place with a 4-under (68).

The next player to try and knock Figueroa from the top spot was Kevin Kraft (Bumble Bee Hollow). Although he had four birdies over his final five holes, it was early bogeys that proved too difficult to overcome. In the end, Kraft finished with eight birdies and three bogeys to finish one shot behind Figueroa in a tie for second place at 5-under (67).

Leading the way in the tournament’s senior division was Stu Ingraham (M Golf Range). With a 3-under (69), Ingraham finished three shots clear of the senior field and notched his fifth senior win of the 2017 season increasing his lead on the Skee Riegel Senior Player of the Year Leaderboard.

In the end Figueroa’s 6-under would be good enough to give him his first Philadelphia PGA tournament win of his career.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling to get this first win,” Figueroa said of his accomplishment. “We have so many great players in our Section and to be able to join them in the winner’s circle is such a cool feeling. I want to thank Gary Rodgers and the entire membership of Doylestown Country Club as well as Kevin McClellan for their support today.”

The third event on the Philadelphia PGA’s super senior circuit sponsored by Jani-King was also held as a part of the Doylestown Open. To be eligible for the super senior division a Professional must be 60 years of age or older and in good standing with the PGA of America. Taking home the title in the super senior division was Gary Hardin (Northampton Country Club) who carded an even par (72) to win by one shot over George Forster (Radnor Valley Country Club).

The Section would like to thank the membership and staff of Doylestown Country Club, Kevin McClellan with Cutter & Buck, the PGA Tour and Jani-King for their support of this event.

Amateur Cole Miller Makes History; Wins Weather Plagued GALV Lehigh Valley Open

EASTON, Pa. – For the second consecutive year, weather played a significant role in the GALV Lehigh Valley Open. Originally set to begin at 8:00am on Monday, July 24 the start of this year’s event was ultimately moved back to 2:00pm that day after significant rain fell in the Lehigh Valley Sunday night and Monday morning. Rain made a second appearance in the tournament’s opening round which forced players to complete their first round on Tuesday morning.

Opening round play resumed at 9:00am with most players having between three and five holes to play. After round one concluded players would have a short break before heading back out for the second and final round. In between rounds the maintenance staff at Northampton Country Club, who in spite of the weather managed to keep the golf course in terrific condition, would set new hole locations and tee positions. Players were also re-paired with the leaders going off of the first hole.

Leading the way after the first round was amateur Cole Miller (New Tripoli, Pa.) who posted an impressive 8-under (64) to lead the field by one shot. However chasing Miller was an outstanding group of Professionals including Michael Tobiason (Deerfield) who finished at 7-under (65), Pat Butkus (Overbrook Golf Club) who was two shots back at 6-under (66). Finishing their opening rounds three shots back at 5-under (67) was a trio of players that included two-time past champion Stu Ingraham (M Golf Range), John Pillar (CC of Woodloch Springs), and Mark Sheftic (Merion Golf Club).

With the second round of the tournament played as a shotgun it was difficult to gauge where each competitor was in relation to the top of the leaderboard. However, whispers began to circulate through the crowds that gathered that Miller may be making a move to separate himself from the field. However what was also unknown was whether or not someone from the field was making a move at Miller and the top spot.

With scores coming in fast and furious at the end of the shotgun one thing became clear, the whispers of Miller playing well were true. Miller posted four birdies and an eagle in his second round which helped him overcome a late bogey to finish with a second round score of 5-under (67) and a 36-hole total of 13-under (131).

What was also true was that there was a player in the field making a significant run at Miller. Merion’s Sheftic, playing in the group behind Miller, knew he had to post a low number to have any chance at grabbing win. Sheftic would give it all he had as he posted nine birdies, including five consecutive on holes 9-13, but a couple of late bogeys would prove costly. When all was said and done Sheftic would finish his second round with a score of 6-under (66) giving him a 36-hole total of 11-under (133) two shots back of Miller.

The win marks the first time an amateur has won the GALV Lehigh Valley Open in the ten year history of the event. All was not lost for Sheftic as he would finish as the tournament’s low PGA Professional.

“It was my first professional win, I have won NCAA tournaments but this is the first time I have ever won an event that featured a field of PGA Professionals”, said Miller on his victory. “It feels great to go up against some of the best players in the area and know that I can compete alongside of them.”

In the tournaments senior division John Pillar would take the top spot finishing the 36-hole event at 8-under (136). Pillar finished three shots clear of second place finisher Brian Kelly (Bucknell Golf Club) who posted a 5-under (139).

The Section would like to thank our title sponsor, the Golf Association of Lehigh Valley and Mr. Karl Gilbert as well as the entire staff and membership of Northampton Country Club for their hospitality.

The Philadelphia PGA tournament calendar continues this Friday, July 28 at Doylestown Country Club for the annual Doylestown Open. For complete coverage of the Philadelphia PGA be sure to follow us online FacebookTwitterInstagram.
