The Sun Shines on PGA Spring Meeting Activities!

Author: N

Sunshine and spring don’t usually come together in Utah, but it did for this years Utah Section PGA’s opening spring events! Soldier Hollow Golf Club in Midway, Utah previewed the Gold Course to local PGA Professionals on Monday. Host Professional Chris Newson ordered some of the best spring weather in a decade as the 2012 Spring Pro-Pro & Four-Ball Championship Seeding followed by the Utah Section PGA Spring Membership Meeting got underway Monday.

Zack Johnson and partner Shawn Edwards sent a message to the field by shooting the low Utah Section Spring Pro-Pro score of -8 under par (64). Only one stroke back was friends and fellow competitors Pete Stone and Dustin Volk at (65). The defending 2011 Four-Ball Champions Chris Moody and Matt Baird finished Monday’s seeding event three shots off the pace at (67). This is Zack Johnson’s third first place finish of the young season. All indications are that the Utah Section PGA Four-Ball Championship will provide great competitive matches for the entire season.

Not only did Soldier Hollow host the Spring Pro-Pro & Four-Ball Championship Seeding but they also hosted the Utah PGA’s Spring Members Meeting after golf. Host professional Chris Newson took the Membership on a virtual tour of the 2012 Amateur Pub-Links Championship. He noted the course set-up information, appealed for members and club volunteer support for the event, and thanked the Utah Section PGA for their monetary support of the event.


Long time Section Sponsor Charley Carlson played an integral part in the success of both the meeting and as Presenting Sponsor for the Utah Section PGA Four-Ball Championship. “Chipper Charley” not only presented each player with a great tee gift at the start of play but also provided on course drinks and great closest-to-the-hole prizes. Jenkins/Carlson Golf Accessories represents several golf product companies to the Section. They include several great brand name products like Maui Jim Sunglasses; Bushnell Range Finders; Antigua Fashion Sportswear; and many more golf accessories. Charley, thanks for your support.
