PGA Professional Marc Vedder and his partner, PGA Associate Steve Tarkon, both from RedHawk Golf Course in Nampa, Idaho, followed their fine first round play with a steady final round good enough to capture the Championship hardware by shooting a two round total of 13-under-par, 64-67=131. Sharing the first round lead and coming up just 2 shots shy of the champions were PGA Professionals Nick Blasius and Matt Ennis, both from Boise, Idaho. The round of the day came from the PGA Professional team from The Valley Club in Sun Valley, Idaho, Jaime Sharp and Cole Lorenz. Their brilliant 8-under-par round of 64, vaulted them in to a tie for second place. While the day started late due to frost, the weather was calm and very pleasant once things got going in the RMSPGA Fall Pro-Pro supported by Chris Jenkins of JC Golf Accessories, Matt Novak and Cody Faught of Mizuno, Jeff Smith of adidas Golf, OMEGA and The PGA TOUR.
The senior division saw some fireworks as PGA Professional Tad Holloway from Ontario, Oregon, made an ace propelling he and his partner Steve Meyerhoeffer, PGA, from Twin Falls, Idaho, to a single shot victory shooting rounds of 67-69=136, finishing 8-under-par, and one better than the team of PGA Professionals Bobby Howell from Chubbuck, Idaho, and his partner Fred Luthy from Boise, Idaho. Alone in third place were the duo of PGA Professionals Mike Hamblin of Twin Falls, Idaho, and Tommy Sanderson from Sun Valley, Idaho, 4 shots off the pace.
The two-round format (Better Ball of Partners in round 1 and Modified Alternate Shot for round 2) was contested at the par 72, 6720 yard Idaho Falls Country Club in Idaho Falls, Idaho, on September 30-October 1, 2019.
