The Dynamic Duo
The SCPGA, and 78 of its members, headed north to Woodland Hills Country Club for the prestigious 2016 Four – Ball Championship. On paper, the course at 6,360 yards, looked like it was going to be an easy test for all the PGA Professionals. However, golf isn’t played on paper, and Woodland Hills C.C. (with an assist from Mother Nature) proved to be a challenge for all involved.
The teams of Ryan Kennedy;PGA / Steve Holmes; PGA and Paul Holtby; PGA / Roger Gunn; PGA were able to steer their golf ball around (and at times knock it under the wind) to post an impressive score of 64. Both teams had their sights set on being crowned champion, and neither would budge in a highly competitive playoff. After Kennedy chipped in from just off the green on the first playoff hole, Holtby poured in a 10 foot birdie putt to keep the playoff going. The teams matched each other with pars on the next two holes, and it seemed like this playoff was going to go on forever. Eventually, Steve Holmes’ par on the 4th playoff hole would earn them the title of 2016 Four-Ball Champions. Congratulations to the champions: Ryan Kennedy; PGA and Steve Holmes; PGA.
Thank you to Rick Stegall; PGA, and his staff at Woodland Hills Country Club. The golf course was in great shape, and the hospitality that the staff offered was superb.
