FAIRLEE, Vt. – Lake Morey Country Club played host to the Vermont Chapter’s annual Pro-Junior tournament on Monday which was presented by PING!. 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. The team from Golf Garage VT took home the gross title with a score of 5-under 135. Golf Garage VT was led by PGA Professional David Jankowski who was joined on the team by his junior partners Jack Bryan, Jack Mayer, and Teddy Maynard. Golf Garage was the lone team to shoot under par in the gross division, doing so on the backs of six birdies and an eagle.
Second place in the gross division went to Bill Ross, PGA and the team from Lake Morey who recorded a round of even-par 140.
The Net Division saw the juniors from Sugarbush Golf Club team up with PGA Professional Roger King to fire a round of 12-under 128. Those juniors were, Rueben Kretz, Joe Patterson, and Brendan Patterson. Sugarbush’s front nine was especially impressive as they recorded net birdies on holes 1 through 4 and followed that up with net eagles on holes 6 and 9. In addition to making a lot of birdies Sugarbush was the only team to not record a bogey in their round.
Toby Young of Williston Golf Club took home the Individual Professional title by shooting 2-under 68. Like Golf Garage VT, Young was the lone player in the field to shoot under par. Young also led the field with six birdies on the day, with his best stretch coming on holes 2 through 4 which he played to 3-under par. Rounding out the top 3 was Roger King and David Jankowski who shot 72 and 73 respectively.
