2018 Utah PGA Spring Pro-Pro Captured by Team Shawn Edwards and Zach Johnson

Jesse Dodson

Spring has sprung, and brought along with it a (-6) 66, two aces, the 2018 Four-Ball Championship seeding and the continuance of a successful Utah PGA season.


Shawn Edwards, head professional of Hubbard Golf Course, and Zach Johnson, assistant professional at Davis Park GC, teamed up to go low with a (-6) 66 in the 2018 Utah PGA Spring Pro-Pro and Four-Ball Seeding at Willow Creek Country Club in Sandy. A well-attended event caused for a packed leaderboard, but six birdies and an eagle propelled Team Edwards and Johnson to a one-stroke victory over Team Lynn Landgren and Brad Stone and Team Derek Butts & Jon Paupore.

 

With their win, Edwards and Johnson secured the second seed in the 2018 Utah PGA Four-Ball Championship, which will be played April 23-25 at Valley View GC. The first seed belongs to Team Bruce and Joe Summerhays for their 2017 Four-Ball Championship victory.


If a (-6) 66 wasn't enough excitement for this year's Spring Pro-Pro, the downhill, par-three 11th hole provided Amen-Corner-like excitement when Pete Stone and Darci Dehlin-Olsen each made a hole-in-one, within the same hour. With only a couple groupings separating Stone and Dehlin-Olsen, faint roars could be heard from neighboring holes as their scores were lowered in the most exciting way possible.


Dehlin-Olsen was partnered with Emily Copier and their team would finish second in the Women's division with a (+1) 74, while Stone and partner Dustin Volk finished tied for fourth with a (-4) 68 to secure the third seed going into the 2018 Four-Ball Championship.

Colleen Walsh and Lynsey Myers teamed together to win the Women's division with a (-1) 72 and Craig Norman and Stu Nelson secured first place in the Men's Net division with a (-7) 65.


As usual, the Spring Pro-Pro ended with the annual Utah PGA Spring Meeting. Accompanied by PGA Productions, the meeting recapped a successful 2017 season with Utah's success with the PGA Jr. League, the ever-growing High School State Championships and the Utah PGA's initiatives to grow the game locally. The PGA Jr. League has caught on like a wildfire locally and is only bound to improve from here.
