Team Waynesborough Captures 2017 Club Car, LLC / Golf Cars Inc. Pro-Official
Malvern, Pa. – On Monday, May 10, the 2017 Club Car, LLC / Golf Cars Inc. Pro-Official was played at beautiful Applebrook Golf Club. The Pro-Official was moved from its traditional fall date and the nearly 50 teams gathered for the event were thankful as they were treated to a nearly perfect spring day. 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 the shotgun tournament came to a close and scores were posted fast and furious one team was able to separate themselves from the field. The team from Waynesborough Country Club featuring PGA Professional Adam Brigham and his partner Andy Spillard posted an impressive net team score of 10-under (61). The duo carded two eagles, eight birdies against only two bogeys to finish three shots clear of the second place team. As champions of the event, Waynesborough CC will receive a free utility vehicle to use at their facility during the 2018 season. Additionally, the winning team will also receive the perpetual Pro-Official trophy to showcase in their clubhouse.
Finishing in second place, three shots behind the team from Waynesborough, was the pair from Whitford Country Club with PGA Professional Mike Ladden and his partner Andrew Larosa. Ladden and Larosa carded eight net birdies and only one bogey to post their number of 7-under (64).
Rounding out the podium was a trio of teams who finished at 6-under (65). The first to do so was the team from Medford Lakes Country Club and featured PGA Professional William Bondaruk and his partner Eric Voss. They were immediately joined by the team from Squires Golf Club and PGA Professional Corey McAlarney and his partner Scott Mason. The final team to finish tied for third traveled up from the Delaware beaches, the Philadelphia PGA’s most southern territory. Hailing from Bear Trap Dunes Golf Club, PGA Professional Michael Rushin and his partner Mike Peters played a near perfect round of golf to earn their top three finish.
