MAPGA Professionals Volunteer at Camp Fantastic

MAPGA Professionals provided golf instruction for campers at Camp Fantastic in Front Royal, Virginia on Thursday, August 20th. Camp Fantastic started in 1983 and is Special Love’s hallmark program, offering a week-long adventure to children ages 7-17 who have received cancer-specific treatment within the past three years.  Camp Fantastic provides young cancer patients with an opportunity to step back from the seriousness of their disease and enjoy normal childhood activities and the bonds of friendship with other children who share similar experiences. Camp Fantastic offers classes, recreation, themed adventures, campfires, and other exciting activities and a full staff of medical caregivers make it possible for children to attend in virtually any stage of treatment. A special thank you to MAPGA Professionals Monte Goff, Assistant Professional at Shenandoah Valley Golf Club, Chris Hall, Head Professional at Evergreen Country Club and Liz Cooper, MAPGA Player Development Director, as well as Assistant Professional Kyle Hevner from Blue Ridge Shadows for donating their time to provide such a memorable experience for the kids of Camp Fantastic.  As usual, Golfzilla and the S.N.A.G. equipment were a huge hit. It was a great day for the kids as well as the instructors.

 

Hutsell Finishes Strong to Win the 90th MAPGA Championship

David Hutsell, PGA Assistant Professional at Woodlhome Golf & Country Club in Pikesville, Maryland won the 90th Middle Atlantic PGA Professional Championship presented by Club Car, Mercedes and OMEGA held at Congressional Country Club.  Hutsell finished his third and final round with a one-over par 73 to take his 54-hole total to one-under par and win by one stroke over Rick Schuller, PGA Head Professional at Swaders Sports Park in Chester, Virginia and Frank O’Connell, PGA Assistant Professional at Springfield Golf & Country Club in Springfield, Virginia.  For his win, Hutsell receives a check for $10,000 and his name engraved on the MAPGA’s Tom Utterbeck trophy. 

Heading into the final round trailing leader Faber Jamerson by four shots, Hutsell wasn’t sure of his chances of winning the title, but as he said, “you never know with golf”.  Hutsell started his first round of the tournament on the famous Blue Course with an even par 72 to put him tied for ninth place.  In round two, Hutsell shot a two-under par 71 on the Gold Course to put him in third place heading into the final round.

Jamerson Takes Lead After 36 Holes at the 90th MAPGA Championship

Bethesda, MD – As a winner of the 2012 Middle Atlantic PGA Professional Championship, Faber Jamerson knows exactly what it takes to win the Section’s premier event.  After playing his first round on the par-72 Blue Course, Jamerson, Head PGA Professional at Falling River Country Club in Appomattox, Virginia, shot a tidy two-under par 69 on the Gold Course at Congressional Country Club and now sits at six-under par for the event. Jamerson posted a bogey free round with two birdies, one on the front nine and one on the back nine. He takes a one shot lead heading into the final round over good friend Rick Schuller.  The cut fell at 13-over 156 for two rounds, with 76 Professionals making it to the final round.

Schuller, PGA Director of Instruction at Swaders Sports Park in Chester, Virginia, shot a second round score of one-under par 70 to get to five-under par for the tournament.  Unlike Jamerson’s round, Schuller’s second round was quite eventful as he carded three bogeys on the front nine and five birdies and one bogey on the back nine.
