The stunning Annandale Golf Club played host to the 2016 SCPGA National Car Rental Professional- Scratch Championship on May 16th 2016 with a full field of 56 teams teeing it up in the four-ball format. The teams comprised of a PGA Professional and their accomplished amateur partner were treated to lush fairways, manicured bunkers, and unreal scenery on the Pasadena property.
Robert Pang, PGA of Big Canyon Country Club and his amateur partner Taylor Wood put on a performance that National Car Rental spokesperson Keegan Bradley would be proud of. Individually both players put up some remarkable numbers; Pang with a solid 66 and Wood with a stellar 64. This impressive team posted a four-ball score of 61 (-9), which was enough to be crowned champions by one shot. Congratulations to the 2016 SCPGA National Car Rental Professional-Scratch Champions Robert Pang, PGA and Taylor Wood!
Thank you to the sponsors of the event that made for a unique experience for all the competitors. Upon arrival the players were treated to the amenities of the National Car Rental mobile experience. Austin Wallace, PGA and Nick Andreas, PGA of National Car Rental were onsite for grip installation, loft and lie check, Cleveland/Srixon demos, and trackman data. Cleveland/Srixon representatives David Myrdahl and Eddie Seefeldt were present on the range to visit with all the players and compliment the amateurs with Srixon golf balls. GolfBuddy’s local representative Doug Campbell set up shop on the first and tenth tee allowing the participants to take their latest rangefinders on the course to experience the newest technology “hands on”. Finally, Pepsi product was on various holes to quench the thirst of the competitors.
A special “thank you” to Wade Berzas, PGA, and the staff at Annandale Golf Club. The extraordinary service and dedication to the SCPGA, and the Professional-Scratch Championship is second to none.
