HYANNIS PORT, MASS. – The Cape Cod Chapter of the New England PGA was treated to a beautiful day across the bridge, as Hyannisport Club played host to a day of Pro-Pro competition for Section Professionals. 27 sides took part in the Four-Ball contest, and there was no shortage of excitement coming down the scenic closing stretch.

The nail biting finish resulted in a three-way stalemate at the top of the leaderboard, with the teams of Jim Clay/Andrew Stolze (The Club at New Seabury), Thomas Rourke/Steven Field (Hyannis GC, Foxborough CC), and Zach Sweet/Gregg Richbourg (Cape Cod National) all finishing with matching 5-under 66’s and a share of first place.

Rourke and Field were the first duo to post 5-under in the clubhouse, and they did so by finishing with a flurry of five birdies on their closing nine, including 2 in their final three holes. Clay and Stolze matched the latter feat, as they carded birdies on holes 16 and 18 to finish their round in style.

Sweet and Richbourg got off to a scorching start, shooting a bogey-free 31 on the front nine that included five birdies. As the final group on the course, they were in search of red numbers on their back nine to break the tie at the top, but could only manage one birdie against a bogey to finish in the logjam at 5-under par.

Hyannisport Club was represented well, as Assistant Professional David Einstein teamed up with Kellen Peery (Golf Garage VT) to finish one shot out of first place with a 4-under 67. Despite a slow start of 8 consecutive pars, the pair broke the ice with an impressive eagle on the 9th hole, followed by a 2-under 33 on the inward half to close out their round.

On behalf of The Cape Cod Chapter, thank you to Hyannisport Club and Tim Watroba, PGA for hosting, as well as our partners Callaway Golf and Baxter’s Boathouse for their support.
