SOMIS, CA – PGA professional Brian Smock of Coronado Golf Course conquered The Saticoy Club’s undulating greens, high winds, and fierce competition to win the SCPGA Stroke Play Classic #2.
The second, and final, stroke play event of the year visited the scenic Saticoy Country Club in the Northern Chapter and provided a tough test of golf for all 70 of the participants.
Smock’s scorecard featured an eagle, four birdies, and three bogeys en route to a three-under par 69. The highlight to his round was an impressive eagle on hole #8, a challenging par-5, which also resulted in a skin.
Smock’s nearest competitors were PGA professionals Michael Block of Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club and Mike Fergin of Mesa Verde Country Club who were tied for second at one-under par 71.
Congratulations to Smock, eagle on #8, and Bobby Nickell, birdie on #13, for claiming skins.
Smock also finished on top in the Aggregate Series with a total of 138 from the stroke play rounds at Avondale GC & The Saticoy Club. Mike Fergin, Al Geiberger and Nate Williams tied for second with a 140 aggregate total and also received the bonus payout.
