POTTER & JACOBSEN EARN 2017 CLEVELAND GOLF/SRIXON/XXIO RMSPGA SNAKE RIVER CHAPTER FACILITY CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE
A cold and rainy start eased off after a few holes and led to a cool and windy afternoon as twenty-one professional teams competed in the 2017 Cleveland GOLF/SRIXON/XXIO RMSPGA Snake River Chapter Facility Championship. Jon Potter, PGA Director of Golf with his PGA Head Professional partner Jason Jacobsen, both from Idaho Falls (Idaho) Country Club, shot rounds of 68 and 66 for a two-round total of 6-under-par 134 to outlast the city of Rexburg’s Teton Lakes Golf Course duo of PGA Head Professional Tyson McFarland and his assistant Taylor Price by 2 shots. Alone in 3rd place one shot behind were the Eagle, Idaho, BanBury Golf Course team of PGA Head Professional Ben Bryson and assistant professional Katie Somers. The rest of the field was closely bunched in pursuit of the title and the complete results are available at rockymountainpga.com.
The single day 36-hole Championship was contested Monday, April 10, 2017, at the 6325 yard, par 70 layout at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Boise, Idaho. The first round was a better ball of partners and the second round was a modified alternate shot (Chapman) format. Both players on each two-person team must be employed at the same facility.
