Half Time Haven
Bruso, Seavey shoot -10 in first round of the Pro-Pro Stroke Play
- Boylston, MA
Bob Bruso, PGA (Blackstone National) and Jeff Seavey, PGA (Samoset Harbor GR) shot a collective ten- under-par, 62, to lead the Pro-Pro Stroke Play at the halfway point in the event at The Haven Golf Club in Boylston, MA on Monday. The duo tees off for their second 18 holes at 2:40 from the first tee.
Seavey and Bruso navigated the Haven almost flawlessly, making ten birdies, and not a single bogey throughout their round. Rain that once threatened the event has become intermittent and the 36-hole championship should complete as planned.
Not far behind on the leaderboard are the teams of Frank Dully, PGA (Kernwood) and John Fields, PGA who finished their first 18 holes at 65 (-7), Brian Keiser, PGA (Weston GC) and Steven Daly, PGA (Black Rock) who finished at 66 (-6).
The rest of the field is right on the leaders’ heels, and anything can happen to end the day! Follow along here and on our social media pages, @NEPGA or @NewEnglandPGA to get the latest updates!
Presidents take over Pro-Lady
Smith and Lynch take home the hardware at Kernwood CC
It was a beautiful day for some golf at the 2018 Pro-Lady Invitational. Kernwood CC in Salem, MA was a wonderful host for the event. The par-70 Donald Ross track plays alongside the Danvers River making for spectacular views. The format for the event was stroke-play, Select Drive-Alternate Shot.
Each team consisted of one NEPGA Professional and one female Amateur who is a member of the Professionals facility. Plenty of smiles, high fives, and laughs were shared out on the course between groups. Competitors raved about the conditions and loved playing this picturesque course.
The 8:00 a.m. shotgun event wrapped up just before 1:00 p.m. and the field of 38 teams entered the clubhouse. Dana Smith, PGA, and Meghan Lynch of Presidents GC came out victorious with a gross score of 71 (+1). Despite a few bogeys and one double bogey, the pairing of Smith and Lynch put together four excellent birdies including one on the par-5 1st.
“We had a good strategy going into it and I think the strategy worked” said Smith with a smile. The pairing of Smith and Lynch have never played a round of golf with each other before this event.
