Riverside Country Club Challenges Utah Section Professionals at Spring Pro-Pro!

Author: N

Riverside Country Club in Provo, Utah began a focal point for Utah Section PGA Professionals on Monday, April 22. Not only was Riverside’s new clubhouse facilities on display but also the championship course presented a quality test for the Utah Section PGA Spring Pro-Pro and Fourball Championship Seeding. Riverside CC has always been a good championship venue having hosted many Cougar Classics and the original Ben Hogan and Nike Tour Events. However, Utah Section Professionals had the additional challenge of playing in a cool wind for the entire qualifying round.


The Utah Section Fourball Championship seeding is actually a tournament within a tournament. Utah Section players were not only vying for Pro-Pro money but also seeding positions for the season long Fourball Championship.


Partners Mike Borich and Gary Schneiter started this season on fire. They topped the field by shooting a ten under par (62)! Borich shot a sizzling 63 on his own ball. Not a bad score on a cold day in April! The Borich/Schneiter team needed every stroke as Utah County Professionals Ryan Rhees and Tracy Zobell finished one shot back at nine under par (63). A large group of talented teams finished at eight under par (64): Corey Badger/Tommy Sharp; Dustin Volk/Pete Stone; and Matt Baird/Joe Summerhays. All indications are that the Utah Section PGA Fourball Championship will provide an entire season of competitive golf matches.

The Spring Tee-Off Event activities were supported by two longtime Section Sponsors. Charley Carlson from Jenkins/Carlson Golf Accessories represents several golf product companies to the Section. They include several great brand name products like Sun Mountain; Bushnell Range Finders; Antigua Fashion Sportswear; and many more golf accessories. “Chipper Charley” Is the long time Presenting Sponsor for the Fourball Championship and presented each player with a great tee gift and closest-to-the-hole prizes.


Terry Outzen of Titleist has been a longtime supporter of Utah Section tournament golf. His company Titleist historically has been a major sponsor of our Section Championship, but Terry has always filled in with sponsor support as needed. Terry, welcome to the Utah Section Fourball Championship! His Fourball support has allowed us to add a new consolation bracket to the championship this season. We thank both of these great sponsors.
