A Winter Classic

It appears that Braydon Swapp, the 2022 Rolex Assistant Player of the Year, hasn’t missed much practice time since his win of last season’s Assistant Championship and his playing of the Assistant PGA Professional Championship in Florida. 

Wintering at Southern Highlands Golf Club near Las Vegas will do that for you. 

Swapp earned the winner’s trophy in the Championship division of the RMT/EZGO Winter Classic Feb. 7-9 after 36-holes of play at SunRiver and Copper Rock Golf Clubs. His two day total of 82 Stableford points was six points better than runner up Michael Yates and seven points better than Bruce Summerhays, Jayme Backos, Tele Wightman and Tommy Sharp. 

First round leaders Adam Whitt (74), Casey Fowles (73) and Zach Johnson (72) fell off their opening round pace in cold and windy conditions of the final round at Copper Rock while Dustin Volk completed the top 10 leaderboard with 71 points.
