Two of NEPGA's Own will represent in US Senior Open

-Salem, Mass

 

Chip Johnson, PGA (Hatherly CC) shot a three-under-par score of 67 at Kernwood Country Club on Wednesday to finish first in the field and qualify for the U.S. Senior Open Championship. Ron Philo, PGA (Stowe Mountain Club) also qualified after finishing at one-under-par and later winning a playoff.

 

Johnson had a strong showing throughout Wednesday’s round. He made three birdies on 4, 5, and 9 on his front nine to make the turn in a great position. On the back, even when he ran into trouble he was able to rebound. After making bogey on 13 and 15, he closed out his round with a birdie on 17. In a field with the competition and talent that was present on Wednesday, his perseverance was key. He finished at three- under par, two full strokes ahead of Sisk and Philo to lock in his spot in the U.S Senior Open.

 

“At somewhere like Kernwood, length wasn’t ever an advantage but position was important, and the greens were sadistic,” said Johnson. “If you drive it good, then you’re able to play out of the fairway, and onto the green to put it where you want. You’d be in trouble if you didn’t do that or got caught in the rough. Luckily I was able to stay ahead of it.”

 

Ron Philo, PGA’s journey was not nearly as simple.
