Marc Spencer, PGA leads his team to Vegas victory
Las Vegas, NV
The 2016 NEPGA tournament season wrapped up last week in fabulous Las Vegas for our 16th Annual NEPGA Las Vegas ProAm. 37 NEPGA Professionals made the trip out west with four of their members in tow for three rounds of golf at some outstanding facilities. The city that never sleeps did not disappoint, as we saw weather in the high 70’s each day and plenty of sunshine. The golf did not disappoint either, as we saw some outstanding play and plenty of risks taken to make the most birdies possible.
Through two rounds, we had a very tight race between two teams, with an additional three lurking nearby. One common theme was these five teams were all from the great state of New Hampshire. In first place by three shots was the team from Windham CC, led by PGA Professional Marc Spencer. Three shots behind were separating them from their nearest competition, as Rico Riciputi, PGA of Wentworth by the Sea CC had his team in hot pursuit. Marc and Rico led their teams on day 1, firing 68 and 67 respectively at Desert Pines and Bali Hai.
