PGA Member Trevor Bensel Wins 2020 Delaware Valley Open with Blistering 9-Under-Par 61
West Chester, Pa. (August 17, 2020) — PGA Member Trevor Bensel, Overbrook G.C., won the 2020 Delaware Valley Open at Concord C.C. by turning in a blistering score of 9-under-par 61, one stroke off the course record.
Bensel bested PGA Members Dave McNabb, Applebrook G.C.; Rich Steinmetz, Spring Ford C.C.; and Parks Price, C.C. of York; by five strokes, with the trio tying for second place.
“After playing Oakmont C.C. in the Pennsylvania Open last week, my putter was freed up playing Concord today,” said Bensel. “I felt I could be more aggressive and I made some putts.”
Making some putts may be an understatement, as Bensel carded seven birdies and an eagle. Capitalizing on his round, Bensel also won the Philadelphia Assistants’ Organization (PAO) Division by five strokes over Price, and seven over Michael VanDerLaan, Sunnybrook G.C.
Dave McNabb won the Senior Division with a 4-under-par 66, one stroke ahead of Greg Farrow, Deerwood C.C., and two better than John Pillar, C.C. at Woodloch Springs. Farrow emerged victorious in the Super Senior Division, beating George Forster, Radnor Valley C.C., by two strokes. Brian Kelly, Bucknell G.C.; and J.R. Delich, 79, tied for third place, bettering his age by 8, with a score of 71.
Alex Pillar finished as Low Amateur with a 1-under-par 69, beating Justin Elwell and Jon Ross by two strokes. Alex is the son of Philadelphia PGA Past President John Pillar.
