Location: Tamarisk Country Club
The Tamarisk Pro-Am is a new and unique event for the desert chapter. This event attracted desert PGA Professionals and amateurs to fill a large field. The event benefitted the Tracy Lane Foundation – one of our beloved colleagues. In addition, since leaving the Bob Hope Classic rotation some nine years ago, the Tamarisk membership wanted to create a special Pro-Am event once again.
The golf course was in immaculate shape and the greens were the best I’ve ever seen. The host professional Kyle Kelly and his staff worked tirelessly to create a spectacular event for all participants. They should be commended. In addition, a special thanks to our tournament sponsors, especially Kirby Pert of Callaway Golf.
Congratulations to Brian Hughes from PGA West – The Greg Norman Course for the victory. Brian shot a 5-under par 67 and took home $500. A close second at 69, 3- under par was John Klug from Mission Lakes CC. John took home $400. For complete results see below.
