FAIRLEE, Vt. – Lake Morey Country Club played host to the Vermont Chapter’s annual Pro-Junior tournament on Monday which returned to the schedule after being postponed in 2020. The Pro-Junior is always a memorable day as Vermont’s PGA Professionals get to compete alongside their students and family.
The tournament featured three separate contests, 2 BB of 4 Gross, 2 BB of 4 Net, and Individual Professional. Burlington Country Club led by PGA Professional David Jankowski came away victorious in the gross competition with a fantastic round of 12-under 128 which was five shots clear of the second-place team. Jankowski was joined on the team by his junior partners Austin Giroux, Will Bartley, and Teddy Maynard. Burlington saw excellent play by all their juniors, but especially so by Giroux who recorded 7 birdies on the day while shooting a 4-under 66 on his own ball.
In second place in the gross division was Williston Country Club who also played play a great round firing a 7-under 133.
Burlington also recorded the lowest score in the Net competition at 18-under, however the Net title went to Vermont National Country Club and Pete Scrimgeour. Scrimgeour was joined on the Vermont National team by Jack McDougall, Ryan Sleeper, and Quinn Vincent. Scrimgeour and company made 7 net birdies and 5 net eagles during their round which was tied for most of the day.
In a close second place in the net division was the team from the Vermont Golf Association led by PGA Professional John Goodchild. The VGA team was 12-under on the day which left them two shots behind the lead.
The Individual Professional competition ended in a tie for the second consecutive week, this time between Sugarbush’s Roger King and CC of Vermont’s David Bennett who both shot rounds of even-par 70. Coming off a T-3 finish last week at the CC of Vermont Pro-Am, King continued that strong play to capture his first win of the season.
