Blackburn Claims Win at CPGA Head Professional Championship

Brooks Blackburn, PGA, of Palmetto Golf Club in Aiken, SC claimed a stellar win at the Carolinas PGA Head Professional Championship Supported by Sun Mountain this week at Berkeley Hall Club in Bluffton, SC.  Blackburn posted a total score of 72-68=140 (-4).

Facing unfavorable weather conditions during the first round, Blackburn managed a solid score of 72 (E).  Round two started off similarly with an even par front nine of 36 including two birdies and two bogeys.  Blackburn's game came through on the back nine.  He sank four birdies and the rest pars to earn the two-stroke win.


"I had a great pairing with Cory and Eerik," said Blackburn. "Cory and I both got off to good starts with birdies at 10 and 11. We definitely stayed loose thinking we were playing for second or third place. A couple more birdies on the back side and it was just enough. The course while wet, was absolutely fantastic."  

Blackburn takes home a prize of $1,720, while Rick Lewallen, PGA, and Cory Schneider, PGA, tied for second.
