Louisville, KY — Griffin Gate Marriott Golf Club hosted a field of 50 players in the KPGA Pro-Pro 2-Man Tournament. Two-person teams of Kentucky PGA professionals from across the Commonwealth teamed up to enjoy this fun event. They played a variety of formats across their 36-hole competition: the opening nine was a scramble format, second nine was a best ball format, third nine was a Chapman style alternate shot and the final nine the professionals combined their scores.
After the morning round, three teams were fighting for the leading position. Blake Watts, PGA Professional at Wildwood Country Club, and his brother, Logan Watts, PGA Professional at Louisville Country Club, opened with a solid round of 13-under-par 59. Following closely at 11-under-par, were teams, Nathan Hincks, PGA Apprentice, and Daniel Utley, PGA Professional, both from Owl Creek Country Club and Robert Costello and Joshua Griffin, both PGA Assistant Professionals from Wildwood Country Club.
Moving into the afternoon round, the Watts brother were able to maintain their lead, despite making four bogeys in the both balls format in the round, finishing the 36-hole competition, with a five stroke lead, at 21-under-par 123.
While the Watts brother maintained their lead throughout, the second place teams from the morning were outplayed by Grover Justice, PGA Professional of High Performance Sports Academy, and Scott Webb, PGA Assistant Professional at Gibson Bay, and Greg Basham, PGA Professional at Cherokee Golf Club and Bruce Oldendick, PGA Professional at Twin Bridges Golf Club. Both second place teams finished at 16-under-par 128.
A special thank you to Griffin Gate Marriott Golf Club for hosting this event and to all the PGA Professionals who participated and help make this a fun event.
