Assistant Professional, Jimmy Grem takes Northern Chapter Championship, while Rick Serrano Captures Senior Division

Congratulations to 22-year-old, Jimmy Grem from Eagles Nest Country Club for winning the Nothern Chapter Championship, along with the Northern Chapter Assistants Championship at Talbot Country Club, June 4th. Grem shot 108 (E) after 27 holes.

He appeared to have a pretty solid start during the first round of the championship, carding 3-under-par through nine holes. He shot an eagle on Hole 11 (Par 5), which led to a string of birdies through Hole 13. Grem only carded one bogey in his opening round.

However, in the second round, Grem appeared to struggle carding three bogies and one double bogey (5-over-par) throughout his round. He was able to maintain even par by carding two birdies in his second round.

This marked Grem’s second year competing in the championship and a source of retribution after finishing tied for second last year.

Grem beat the field by a solid margin with second place finishers David Hutsell, PGA from Pine Ridge Golf Club and Brian Dix from University of Maryland Golf Course finishing 4-over-par through 27 holes.

Winning the Senior Division of the Northern Chapter Championship, as well as being the only player shooting under par was Rick Serrano from Cattail Creek Country Club.

Serrano maintained a steady pace throughout the day, carding an even-par during his first round (two birdies and two bogies) and followed with a second round 71 (1-under par). He carded one eagle on his round on Par 5, Hole 7. In total, he had four birdies and one eagle on the day.

A huge thanks to Host Professional Mark Kimminau for having us back for the second year in a row.
