PGA Golf Management opens new academic year with Golf Scramble
Eastern Kentucky University’s PGA Golf Management program held their 2013 Welcome Back Golf Scramble on Saturday, August 24th at Arlington Golf Course in Richmond, Ky. Over 70 of the 100 students enrolled in the program took part in the Welcome Back Golf Scramble. The event is designed to give freshman a chance to pair with upper classman in a friendly, yet ultra-competitive tournament styled environment. Each team is chosen by a blind draw, with up to four players on any given team.
“The top three teams each had two freshmen on them, and were all within a few shots of each other. It made for an exciting finish,” commented Ross Lingenfelder. Mr. Lingenfelder is one of the program’s key staff members, specializing in Player Development and Recruiting.
This year's champions are:
- Josh Griffin - junior from Shelbyville, Ky.
- Blake Hardesty - sophomore from Brandenburg, Ky.
- Alex McCarter - freshman from Gahanna, Oh.
- Dustin Roth - freshman from Collins, Oh.
The team shot a score of 58, finishing 14 under par.
Senior Taylor Webb was the closest to pin on Hole #7.
Congratulations to all participants for an outstanding performance.
