CPGA Pro-Assistant Championship Begins with Hole-in-One

Our Pro-Assitant Championship kicked off this morning at River Landing Country Club in Wallace, NC. With that, we've already seen a hole-in-one! Brian Phelps of the Dunes Club claimed the epic shot on his first hole of the day (#10) - 144 yards, 9 iron. It's certainly one for the books - congratulations, Brian!

 

 

We're wishing all players the best of luck today and tomorrow as they compete for the title as champion. As you can see, it's already a very exciting tournament!

Happy July! The latest issue of On the Fringe is available for viewing today and you won't want to miss it. Not only was June a busy month but the past few days alone brought some major developments to the Section. On Monday, June 29, 2015 the CPGA Section's Executive Director, Ron Schmid, PGA announced his plan to retire at the end of the year. We're wishing him and his family the best on their new endeavors. 

Please join us in congratulating Ron on his hard work and great contributions to the Section over the past 16 years and to the industry over the past 45. A great leader and dedicated golf professional who will undoubtedly be missed!
