WOODSTOCK, Vt. – Pete Scrimgeour (Vermont National CC) fought through the rainy conditions at the Woodstock CC Pro-Am to secure low professional honors for the second consecutive week.
Fresh off his first professional win last week at the Burlington CC Pro-Am, Scrimgeour carded a 2-over 72 to narrowly edge out Burlington Country Club’s Kevin Bennison by one shot. Scrimgeour’s front nine included one birdie and three bogeys to go out in 37 shots. He then followed that up with an even-par 35 on the back nine to secure the victory.
Bennison carded a 3-over 73 to finish in solo second, he showed steady play throughout his round recording 13 pars, 4 bogeys and 1 birdie on the day. Finishing in third place was Susan Fasoldt from Dorset Field Club.
In the team competition, PGA Professional Johnny Cleanthes and the Haystack Golf Club team shot a 14-under 126 to finish in first place. After shooting a 5-under 65 on the front nine, Haystack GC fired a 9-under 61 on the back to separate themselves from the pack.
Rounding out the top 3 spots were the teams from Williston Golf Club and Woodstock Country Club led by PGA Professionals Todd Trono and Matt Closter.
Thank you to Woodstock Country Club Head Professional Matt Closter and Superintendent Tim Stanwood for being gracious hosts for the second time this season.
