Jeff Fick, PGA, Wins 2021 William Hyndman III Memorial Golf Classic
Huntingdon Valley, Pa. (August 9, 2021) — PGA Member Jeff Fick, Moselem Springs G.C., won the 2021 William Hyndman III Memorial Golf Classic at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, clinching his first-ever Philadelphia PGA Section tournament victory.
Fick turned in a 5-under-par 65 to win the Rolex Player of the Year event honoring the legendary William Hyndman III by one stroke over Lookaway G.C.’s Michael Little, PGA. Fick made seven birdies on Monday, including a stretch of five between Nos. 10-15. Fick hit his approach into the front left bunker on No. 18, but had to wait over one hour to finish his round, as severe weather temporarily suspended play. Fick ultimately two-putted for his 65.
“I am very happy and excited to win my first Section tournament,” Fick said following his round. “I played pretty well and kept the ball in play the whole round. I actually didn’t miss a green on the back nine until 18.”
Ross Brown, Fox Hill C.C., finished in third place, three behind Fick. Four PGA Professionals tied for fourth at 1-under-par.
In addition to winning the tournament, Fick secured the victory in the Philadelphia Assistants’ Organization (PAO) Division, finishing four ahead of PGA Professionals Ashley Grier, Overbrook G.C.; Zac Oakley, Bidermann G.C.; and Brett Walker, Sunnybrook G.C.
PGA Member Dave McNabb, Applebrook G.C., continued his stellar play from his win last week at the Philadelphia PGA Skee Riegel Senior Open to win the Senior Division at even-par, one ahead of George Forster, PGA, and Hugo Mazzalupi, Patriots Glen National G.C. PGA Life Member Michael Versuk topped the Super Senior Division with a 73, five strokes ahead of Frank Palumbo, Rolling Green G.C.
