It is always sad to see this day come. The last NHC/NEPGA Pro am at Laconia CC ended the 2020 season for the PGA Professionals and their teams. A total of 100 players participated the the 10am shotgun.
The pro divisions saw Matt Arvanitis cap off a fantastic season with a 3 under par 69 to tie for 1st place with Rochesters Brett Smestad. Smestad had an eagle and 4 birdies (three in a row on holes 12-14) to card his 69. Arvanitis had to birdie his last two holes to score his 69. With the tie for first, Matt finished off a year of steady play and captured the NHC/NEPGA Player of the Year Honors. Jay Pollini also had a great year, today he shot a 1 under 71 to take 3rd place. Jay ended up second in the Player of the Year standings less than 15 points behind Arvanitis. Eric Aguiar shot an even par 72 to take the 4th spot followed by Dan Wilkins at 73 to end up 5th.
The team competition with the format of 1 BB Gross & 1 BB Net combined saw teams from Montcalm and Whip Poor Will come in at 11 under par to tie for 1st place. Montcalm was lead by PGA Professional Dustin Robilini with teammates Tracy Molesky, Terry Hall, and Pat Pellitier, while Whip Poor Will Head PGA Professional Jim Gunnare led his team of Tony Fournier, Michael Jonis, and Peter Beaulieu. The team from Rochester with Professional Brett Smestad came in 3rd at 9 under. There was a four way tie for 4th place at minus 8.
This concludes the 2020 NHC/NEPGA Pro Am series. I want to thank all the PGA Professionals and all the amateurs that participated in the events this season. Despite the all that has gone on this year you have made this season a successful, interesting, and fun season.

As always after the day one round NCCC host a shoot-out for the top 10 scores from Sundays Annual Pro/Member tournament. One player gets eliminated each hole until one is left. This is a popular event for both the players and the members of NCCC. After some stellar play, the last two players standing were Bill Andrews and Matt Arvanitis. They both made 5 on the 9th hole bringing the challenge of teeing off from #1 green tee to the 9th green. A shot down the hill with the pin on the top level made this shot difficult to stop the ball close to the pin. Bill Andrews teed off first and hit a great shot stopping the ball 6 feet from the pin. This brought a tough challenge to Matt. Matt hit another outstanding shot stopping the ball 10 feet away. With that, Bill Andrews was crowned the shoot-out champion. Now it was time for the players to head to their rooms and get some rest for day two competition.
Leader Matt Arvanitis started the front nine a little slow with 3 pars and a bogie in the first 4 holes. However he completed his front nine with 3 birdies to make the turn at 2 under par for round 2, 5 under par total. Jason Sedan shot a 1 under par 34 on the front to make the turn at 3 under, 2 strokes behind and still withing striking distance. Danny Kish made the turn at 2 under par and 5 strokes behind. Cory Mansfield was also making a charge shooting a 3 under par on the front and also 5 strokes behind. Unfortunately Jay Polinni shot a 2 over par on the front falling 7 stokes behind. Matt continued his strong play on the back shooting a 1 under on the back for his second straight 3 under par 68. Cory Mansfield got the lead down to 4 at one point but was unable to catch Matt’s 6 under par total. Top five finishers with scores: Matt Arvanitis -6, Jason Sedan -1, Danny Kish +1, Jay Polinni +1, and Cory Mansfield +2.
In the senior division Vince Molesky made 3 bogies on the front for a 38, while Bill Andrews also made 3 bogies but made 2 birdies to shoot 36 giving him a one shot lead at the turn. Bill stayed in the lead until hole 14 when he made double bogie, while Vince made par giving him a one shot lead. From there Vince held on for a 2 stroke victory to win the Senior Championship. Top 5 players in the Senior Division: Vince Molesky +4, Bill Andrews +6, defending champ Alex Kirk +7, and Jon Ellis +9.
