Cold Weather Couldn't Stop The Golf Lab Pros From Heating Up


As the winter weather changes from cold to colder in the northern part of Utah the warmer weather down south seduces many a Utah PGA Professional to team up with their Assistants and compete in the Utah Section PGA Pro-Assistant Championship presented by TaylorMade Adidas Ashworth Golf. A total of 57 teams and 98 players shed their parkas and thawed out their golf clubs for this winter championship! This event has long been a part of the Utah PGA schedule and its primary purpose is to cultivate the relationship between Head Golf Professional and Assistant Golf Professional. The 2-Man Best Ball competition consisted of 2 rounds and both were played at spectacular courses!

After a short frost delay players enjoyed the warmth that St. George had to offer in Round 1 at Entrada Country Club following a riveting education meeting and breakfast put on by TaylorMade. Bret Wahl, Vice President of R&D irons/putters for TaylorMade outlined club performance breakthroughs and fitting strategies.

Round 2 was played at Sunbrook Golf Course: The Pointe/Blackrock nines. Corey Badger and assistant Tommy Sharp from the Golf Lab in Salt Lake City caught on fire with 9 birdies, almost doubling their birdie count from Round 1, to shoot a score of 63.  Combined with a solid 67 at Entrada, the team total of 130 earned the win at the Pro-Assistants Championship!  In the Adidas Division Craig Sarlo and Kory Woodland representing The Barn Golf Club won with a 66-63, 129 total!

Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to Phil Deimling and Bret Wahl of TaylorMade and Jeff Smith of Adidas Ashworth for making this an outstanding tournament! A combination of fantastic weather, good golf courses and great sponsors made for one of the best Pro-Assistant events ever! This has always been a favorite winter getaway among Utah Section PGA Golf Professionals and their Assistants and will likely heat things up next winter too.
