LITTLE COMPTON, RI- Wollaston Golf Club’s Liam Friedman and Jeff Martin combined to shoot a score of 9-under 61 to win the Rhode Island Chapter’s Sakonnet Pro-Pro. The oceanside gem hosted the Rhode Island Chapter’s first event of the season with a field of 56 PGA Professionals.


The Wollaston duo caught fire right from the first shots of the day, recording birdies on holes 1, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 to make the run at an remarkable 6-under 28. They continued their strong play on the back nine making three birdies and six pars to complete their round of 9-under par.

In second place was the team of Bob Tramonti (Triggs Memorial GC) and Kirk Hanefeld (Salem CC). Tramonti and Hanefeld finished the day at 5-under 65 edging out the teams of Zach Girouard & Tyler Sprague (Old Sandwich GC) and Andy Lane & Kyle Puzzo (Worcester CC) both of whom finished at 4-under 66.

Thank you to Sakonnet Golf Club Head Professional Matt Alwin, PGA, Assistant Professional RJ Soares, and Superintendent Matt Chouinard for being fantastic hosts.  The Rhode Island Chapter would also like to thank Derek Travers and Callaway Golf for their support of the event!
