Pare/ Martin Take Championship Second Year in a Row
Jeff Martin, PGA (Norton CC) and Troy Pare, PGA (Ledgemont CC) took home the Pro-Pro Match Play Championship in 20 holes on Wednesday at LeBaron Hills Country Club in Lakeville, Mass. This is the second consecutive year and sixth time they’ve won the event.
It was nothing short of miserable through the rounds on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Wind, rain, and temperatures into the 40s pushed Tuesday’s semi-final matches to Wednesday. For the final day, Martin and Pare had to battle in the same wet conditions for at least 36 holes to repeat as champions.
Squaring off against Matt Zdon, PGA and John Fields, PGA in the semi-finals Wednesday morning was no easy task. Through nine holes, all was square in the match. As the rain kept falling and wind willing the duos forward, the putts started falling for Pare and Martin, who would win the match 3&2. They agreed that the match play style aided, in part, to their success.
No Match for the Weather

*Update 2 pm* The Semi-final matches of the Pro-Pro Match Play Championship at Lebaron Hills CC have been postponed due to rainy weather. They will be rescheduled to Wednesday morning, beginning at 7:30 and 7:40. The final match will follow on Wednesday afternoon
Matt Zdon, PGA and John Fields, PGA might be the 12th seed in the Pro-Pro Match Play Championship, but they don’t let that affect their play. In a match against 4th ranked John Paesani, PGA and Greg Yeomans, PGA they won 2 &1 in a tight finish. The duo was one of four teams to win its quarter final match on Tuesday.
