Dave McNabb Wins 20th Haverford Philadelphia PGA Classic

Flourtown, Pa. – One day removed from Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer, 138 Philadelphia PGA Professionals and 12 amateurs descended on Sunnybrook Golf Club for the 20th Haverford Philadelphia PGA Classic. This annual event is always a Philadelphia PGA favorite as it boasts the largest first place prize in the Section…$100,000.

In the morning wave a pair of players looked to be in prime position to capture this year’s event. This first to do so was Andrew Turner a PGA Assistant Professional from Whitford Country Club. Turner made his way around the par72 6800 yards long golf course at 3-under-par (69). Turner played his first nine holes bogey-free while adding two birdies. As Turner made his way to the back nine he eagled the par5 10th hole to quickly reach 4-under-par. However from that point forward Turner finished with two bogeys and only one birdie ultimately dropping him to his 3-under-par number.

Playing not far behind Turner, defending Philadelphia PGA Professional Champion Dave McNabb of Applebrook Golf Club was able to play a near perfect round of golf and finish two shots ahead of Turner. After an early bogey on the second hole, his only blemish of the day, McNabb went on to birdie six holes and finish with a score of 5-under-par (67). McNabb had back-to-back birdies on holes 3 & 4 as well as hole 9 & 10. After missing a few opportunities on some of the inward holes, McNabb was able to add birdies on the par3 15th before finishing with a birdie on the closing hole in front of the tournament’s gallery gathered on the veranda of Sunnybrook Golf Club’s clubhouse.

“I had been playing really well leading into today’s event and was very comfortable with where my game was headed,” commented McNabb on his round at the Haverford Philadelphia PGA Classic. “I was able to overcome an early bogey on the second hole and from that point forward had it going pretty good. This is definitely one of my biggest accomplishments and I’m looking forward to continuing this momentum into the upcoming events.”

As the tournament turned to the afternoon a few players threatened to make a run at McNabb and the top of the leaderboard but ultimately fell short. In the end the closest anyone in the afternoon wave was able to get to McNabb was the score of 1-under-par (71) posted by Jakob Gerney of Trump National – Philadelphia.

The win was McNabb’s first of the 2016 season and also his first as a newly minted Philadelphia Senior PGA Professional.

In the amateur division, a pair of players posted impressive scores of 1-over-par (73). Both Gary Shoeman and Francis Vaughn carded the number and will share the top amateur prize.

On a special note, Jason Calhoun from LaSalle University carded what is believed to be the tournament’s first hole-in-one on the par3 5th hole.

As always the members of the Philadelphia PGA would like to thank Mr. George Connell and the Haverford Trust Company as well as the membership of Sunnybrook Golf Club for their tremendous support of this event.
