With Covid precautions in place, the 2020 Utah Section PGA Spring Pro-Pro looked a little different and was held a little later in the year as usual, but the results and the comradery were just as good.
There was a tie at the top of the leaderboard when all was said and done. Team Mark Owen/Chris Moody and Team Dustin Volk/Pete Stone finished with a (-8) 64 at Ogden Golf & Country Club.
With six birdies and an eagle on the par-five 12th hole, Owen and Moody had a blemish-free card and through a scorecard playoff will take the 2nd seed going into the season-long Utah PGA Four-Ball Championship.
Defending Champions Chris Gresh and Dustin Pimm will take the 1st seed, with the first and second rounds being played on June 2nd.
Volk and Stone had only one blemish on the card, but with an eagle on the par-five sixth hole and seven birdies, they were able to reach eight-under and will go into the Four-Ball Championship as the third seed.
“We had a great turnout as always, Charley Carlson is a great sponsor, he always is, he worked with us through all the changes,” Utah PGA Executive Director Devin Dehlin said. “We want to thank Craig Sarlo, Bob Wallace, everyone at Ogden country club, along with their membership for allowing us to use their course.
“It was awesome, it was great from my standpoint and the Section staff, to see many of our members because we haven’t seen them in a while.”
Traditionally the Spring Pro-Pro is held alongside the Spring Meeting, but to avoid large gatherings the meeting was cancelled.
The Four-Ball Championship bracket is set and the tournament is underway. The first two rounds will be held at Ogden Golf & Country Club, while the remaining rounds will be scheduled by each individual match until the championship match.
