Huntingdon Valley, Pa. (August 25, 2020) — PGA Member Michael Little, Lookaway G.C., won the 2020 William Hyndman III Memorial Golf Classic at Huntingdon Valley C.C. with a par in a sudden-death playoff over Dave McNabb, PGA, Applebrook G.C.
As they say, “the third time is the charm,” as Little previously appeared in two Hyndman Memorial playoffs, in 2013 and 2018.
“It is a special win considering my two other playoffs appearances,” said Little. “I would like to thank Huntingdon Valley C.C. and all of its members for hosting the Philadelphia PGA Section and the Hymdnan Family for this wonderful event. I would also like to thank our Lookaway G.C. members for allowing me to compete.”
Little and McNabb’s 1-under-par 69s were the only sub-70 scores turned by the field, and both players teed off in the morning wave, requiring a lengthy wait for the playoff to begin. There was a six-way tie for third place.
In addition to finishing as runner-up, Dave McNabb also won the Senior Division by one stroke over Terry Hertzog, Merion G.C. PGA Member Brett Walker, Sunnyrbook G.C.; captured the Philadelphia Assistants’ Organization (PAO) Division with a birdie in a playoff with Andrew Turner, French Creek G.C.; and Ross Seaman, Manufacturers’ G. & C.C.; all of whom finished their rounds at even-par. In the Super Senior Division, Robert Lennon, Wilmington C.C., came out on top by two strokes with a score of 71 over Brian Kelly, Bucknell G.C.
