Bergstol Wins 2021 TaylorMade Classic

Chester County, Pa. (May 17, 2021) — Philadelphia PGA Member Brian Bergstol, Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort, fired a 3-under-par 68 at French Creek Golf Club to win the 2021 TaylorMade Classic by one stroke over a trio of his peers.

Bergtsol’s round, which included five birdies and two bogies, was made even more impressive by the fact that today’s round was his first at French Creek.

“I had a solid round today,” said Bergstol. “I had a couple of three putts and missed a two-footer, but overall, it was pretty solid; it was my first time here.”

Bergstol’s win today continues his good play as he also won the Philadelphia PGA Section’s team event last week, the Spring Pro-Pro Championship, alongside Trevor Bensel, Overbrook G.C.

PGA Professionals tying for second place included Hugo Mazzalupi, Patriots Glen National G.C.; Mark Sheftic, Lookaway G.C.; and Parks Price, C.C. of York.

Hugo Mazzalupi won the Senior Division by two strokes over Dave McNabb, Applebrook G.C., who finished at even par. There was a four-way tie for third place in the Senior Division. In the Super Senior Division, Don DeAngelis, Spring Ford C.C.; topped Joe Ambrose, Saucon Valley C.C. with a even par 71.

Bergstol also won the Philadelphia Assistants’ Organization (PAO) event by two strokes over Oakley,  Bensel, who both finished with 1-under-par 70s.

The next Philadelphia PGA Rolex Player of the Year tournament on the schedule is the Burlington Classic Pro-Am on June 6-7 at Burlington C.C.
