Warren Steals Sharon
Falmouth CC Pro Takes Home SPS #4
Shawn Warren, PGA (Falmouth CC) shot a four-under-par score of 68 to win the fourth of five NEPGA Stroke Play Series Events at the Cape Club of Sharon in Sharon, Mass on Monday. The fifth event will be at Haverill CC on August 28th.
Warren started hot out of the gates, making an eagle on the first hole. Even though he made bogeyes on the third and fourth holes, his eagle cushion helped him to stay balanced. He added another birdie on seven, making the turn at one-under par.
On the back, the defending Assistants Champion made birdie on the 11th, 15th and 17th holes. He kept up his strong play and made only the two bogeys on the day, finishing at his winning score of four-under, 68.
It’s no surprise that Warren was able to succeed on the former Spring Valley CC course, as he handily won the Assistant’s Championship here last year. Approaching the event, he didn’t even realize he would be playing the same course.
