Worth Waiting at Warwick
William Maguire Wins Chapter Championship
- Warwick Neck, RI
We could not have asked for a better day on a course that was in pristine condition for The Rhode Island PGA Chapter Championship. This year's Championship was contested over 36 holes of individual stroke play at an immaculate Warwick Country Club. The course setup was challenging and geared to engage the Rhode Island Professionals on their pursuit for the Chapter Championship Title. As the morning sun attempted to warm up a very brisk Fall sleeping in kind of day, 18 RIPGA Professionals geared up for the challenge.
Rising to the top, after turning in is card for 74 - 70 Total 144 and waiting over an hour for the final group, William Maguire, PGA of Point Judith CC stood as the 2017 RI Chapter Champion!
