Jenkins Defends His Assistant Championship Title After Impressive Day

PGA Apprentice Professional Steve Jenkins of Stonehenge Golf and Country Club had a day to remember at Spring Creek Golf Club on Monday, July 27th as he won the National Car Rental Assistant Professional Championship by seven strokes.  New this year to the Championship was making the event a one day 36 hole event instead of the previous format of two-days 18 holes each day.   Jenkins set a new tournament course record with his first round score as he fired a 10-under par 62. Jenkins “got off to a hot start and drove the ball great and putted well” as he made birdie on 7 of the first 9 holes, including making birdie on the first four holes.  He then eagled the par-5 12th hole and birdied the 16th hole to finish at 10-under 62 for his first round.

Local Veterans Honored at Honor Tour Event

Kudos to Middle Atlantic PGA Professional Peter Gardner, General Manager at Ashley Plantation in Daleville, Virginia who hosted the inaugural Honor Tour Tournament on Saturday, July 11th. The proceeds of this event will provide 40 Roanoke Valley Veterans with an all-expense paid two-day trip to Washington, DC to visit our National War Memorial Monuments including the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the Arlington National Cemetery. The trip includes a guided tour, motor coach transportation, lodging and meals. 108 players entered the event including 30 Veterans. The trip itself will be in October. The tournament committee is now working on selecting the 40 Veterans to make the trip. One of the first criteria for selection is choosing those Veterans who have not had the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. before. 

 

Griffin Goes Wire-to-Wire to Claim 2015 Delta Dental State Open of Virginia

ROANOKE — There are no giant scoreboards or placards on the course at Ballyhack Golf Club for the Delta Dental State Open of Virginia. So the only way a player knows where he stands in a round is through whispers from followers. Lanto Griffin heard that his closest competitor, fellow professional Evan Beck, was closing in as he approached the ninth hole in Saturday’s final round. I heard you cut it to three,” Griffin told Beck at the scorer’s table after the round. When someone told Griffin the lead was actually chipped to one stroke, he replied: “It’s a good thing I didn’t know at that point.” 

Still Griffin, who opened the day with a five-shot lead, sensed he needed to amp up his game, especially after a pair of disappointing bogeys at Nos. 7 and 8. He did just that, making birdie at No. 9 and eagle at No. 10, helping him regain control of the tournament. After Beck made double bogey on No. 13, Griffin cruised home to earn his first VSGA Championship, shooting a 12-under aggregate 204 (66-68-70)  to claim the State Open title by six strokes over Beck, Roanoke amateur Justin Young and three-time State Open champion Jay Woodson.

Great Turnout for First Annual Military Pro-Am

The MAPGA was proud to organize the 1st annual Military Pro-Am Presented by Lockheed Martin on Monday, July 13, and was able to raise over $30,000 for The Folds of Honor Foundation and the MAPGA Junior Golf Foundation.  Aided by generous sponsors, we brought together 18 teams with each team consisting of 2 Active Duty military personnel, 1 MAPGA Professional, and 2 sponsors.  Each team played a scramble format and had a wonderful day of camaraderie and fellowship, concluding with a dinner and guest speaker Samantha Novack describing the true power of the scholarship she was awarded through the Folds of Honor.  The hope is to make this into an annual event and grow the event in every way in 2016.
