Matching Scores of 5-Under-Par Claim the Top Spot on Both Courses at the Pro-Assistant-Pro Championship
Galloway, N.J. – The annual Pro-Assistant-Pro Championship was held at Seaview Resort on Monday, June 27. This event pairs the highest ranking PGA Professional at a given facility with each of his or her PGA Assistant Professionals in a better ball of partners event. The tournament was held on both the Bay and Pines course at Seaview Resort with prizes awarded on each course separately.
Leading the way on the Bay course was the team from Overbrook Golf Club featuring Eric Kennedy and Matt Romond. The pair combined for six birdies and one eagle giving them a total score of 5-under-par (66). The number was good enough for a one shot win over the team of Bob Hennefer and Curtis Kirkpatrick (Indian Springs CC) who finished at 4-under-par (67). Rounding out the top three was duo of Neil Maurer and Michael Rushin (Bear Trap Dunes GC) who finished with a combined score of 3-under-par (68).
On the Pines course a trio of teams finished tied atop the leaderboard. The team of Jeff Bonicky and Devon Peterson from Sea Oaks Golf Club overcame a lone bogey by carding four birdies and one eagle for a total team score of 5-under-par (66). The second team to match them at the magic number was the pair of Michael Ferguson and Aaron Hartman from the Philadelphia Cricket Club. The final pair rounding out the group at 5-under-par only had to travel a few miles to claim a share of the victory. The team of Jason Lamp and Dean Halterman from Galloway National Golf Club carded six birdies against only one bogey to join the leaders.
The Section would like to thank our sponsors Cutter & Buck, Mizuno, Golf Max, Country Club Editions, Golf Genius, and the PGA Tour for supporting this great event. The Philadelphia PGA will return to action on Monday, July 11 for the William Hyndman, III Memorial Classic at Huntingdon Valley CC.
