We had a great turnout for the 2011 Brigham City Open. 2011 will be remembered as the year that the amateurs came to play. Nick Drost, college golfer from Dixie State and Brighton High, hit 17 greens in regulation and made a few putts to shoot 65 to take home the title.
The PGA of America is excited to announce a few new things we are doing this year to help you follow your Section Professionals in the 44th PGA Professional National Championship at Hershey (Pa.) Country Club.
Also, something new. We are going to have live coverage of the par-3 No. 5 on the West Course. This page will also include a “who is next on the tee.” This link will be live beginning on Sunday, June 26.
The summer weather is finally warming-up and so are the Utah Section PGA Championships. Soldier Hollow Golf Course hosted some of the best golf, and yes some of the best weather of the year, Monday June 20th and Tuesday June 21st. BYU bound Devin Purser shot a sizzling opening round 64 to take the first round lead in the Utah Section PGA Junior Championship. Purser followed his first round score with a 69 for a two day total of 133. Purser finished with the 2011 Utah PGA Junior Title and the right to represent the Utah area at the National PGA Junior Championship to be held at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Indiana on August 2-5, 2011.
