Philadelphia PGA Section Announces Inaugural DeAngelis Pro-Am
Lower Gwynedd Township, Pa. (June 30, 2022) — The Philadelphia PGA Section is happy to announce the newest addition to its tournament calendar, the DeAngelis Pro-Am. The event, scheduled for Thursday, August 4 at the 1912 Club in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., will honor the late Don DeAngels, PGA, who passed in January 2022.
DeAngelis was elected to PGA Membership in 1978, and played the game with immense talent, winning the 1985 Pennsylvania Open and playing in the 1978 U.S. Open at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo., and winning a Section tournament in six straight decades. His most recent win was in September 2021, when he won the 2021 Philadelphia Senior PGA Professional Championship’s Super Senior Division, and also shot his age, a 69.
Following DeAngelis’ passing, his family approached the Section in hopes to create an annual event to pay tribute to Don and his career.
