NORTON, Mass – The official Tournament season for the New England PGA has started. The New England PGA’s Massachusetts Chapter completed its first event of the season April 8, 2019 at TPC Boston. The field was comprised of 54 players/27 teams of two playing three different formats- Best Ball, Alternate Shot & Scramble. Considering the rain and cold temperatures on the day, the course was in phenomenal shape and we witnessed some great golf.
The winners were Eric Barlow, PGA (Winchester CC) and Seul-Ki Park, PGA (Winchester CC) shooting eight under par (64) in the overall contest. Barlow & Park started their round with three pars followed by six straight birdies. They went on to record seven more pars and two birdies to cap a stellar start to their season.
In the Best-Ball contest, there was a four way tie at three under par between the teams of Chris Carter, PGA (Hillview GC) & David Sibley, PGA (Larry Gannon GC), Todd Cook, PGA (Milton Hoosic Club) & Chris Young, PGA (Thomson CC), Jeff Martin, PGA (Wollaston GC) & Steve Mann (PGA Professional), and Lou Rivers, PGA (Foxborough CC) & Matt Walsh, PGA (Warwick CC) .
