The third event of the NEPGA Massachusetts Chapter season, the MA Chapter Pro+3Am (1G+1N) was played under warm sunshine with a light breeze as the 76-person field descended upon one of southeastern Massachusetts’ finest courses, Foxborough Country Club. Taking advantage best of the scoring conditions were the teams of Cyprian Keyes GC, consisting of PGA Professional Shawn Durocher and amateurs Mark Eldridge, John McGuirk, and Ed Dumphy, and Blackstone National GC, consisting of PGA Professional Patrick Beahn and amateurs Jim Cozza, Joe Agnelli, and Jeff Walker. With eight of the nineteen teams breaking par, these two teams blitzed the challenging layout and played exceptionally en route to winning scores of 8 under par 136.
The Individual Professional competition featured fine play as well. In addition to her team’s victory in the other portion of the event, Shawn Durocher also captured the individual title with a one over par 73. Carding four birdies, three bogeys, and one double bogey, Durocher’s steady play led her to a one shot victory over Hillview GC’s Chris Carter, PGA.
