CPGA Member Jeff Crittenden Finishes 2nd
at RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships

 

Jeff Crittenden, a Carolinas PGA Member and Director of Instruction at North Carolina Golf Academy, finished second at the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship.  "Critter" and Jeff Flagg of Pelham, Alabama both hit drives of just over 365 yards.  The distances were so close that officials had to pull out the tape measure.  Flagg's drive finished only 13" ahead to earn the winner-take-all prize of $250,000.

"I am still amazed that I made it into the final eight," said Crittenden. "This has been a dream of mine for the last eight years. I feel very honored to be a part of this great group of hitters."

The CPGA proudly congratulates Crittenden on his performance and wish him the best of luck next year.
