PALOS VERDES, California – New year, same result. Michael Block, PGA and Jillian Braverman of Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club go back to back and claim the 2017 National Car Rental Professional – Lady Championship. Block and Braverman finished with an impressive round of six-under par 65 in the Pinehurst format and three strokes clear of the field.
The immaculate and challenging Palos Verdes Golf Club served as fantastic host for the 32 team field. It was a picturesque day on the peninsula for a wonderful day of golf.
The duo of Block and Braverman are familiar to hoisting the trophy in this Championship winning last year at Industry Hills Golf Club. This event marks the first Section tournament of the wraparound season for valuable OMEGA Player of the Year points with Block taking the early lead in that race.
Congratulations to Rick Booth, PGA and Jillian Braverman for winning the Closest of the Hole contest on #8, each receiving a range finder curiosity of GolfBuddy.
Nice shot by Chris Miller, PGA of Hillcrest Country Club with his Ace on hole #2, hitting a 4 iron at 204 yards. With this Hole-In-One Chris earns the Section Hole-In-One pool funds that roll over from each event until an Ace is had. Congratulation Chris!
