BRYSON & BURTON WIN MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIPS
BRYSON EARNS THE 2017 SRCPGA MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP
BURTON IS THE SENIOR DIVISION CHAMPION
Ben Bryson, PGA Head Professional at BanBury Golf Course in Eagle, Idaho, defeated Twin Falls Golf Club PGA Head Professional Travis Hofland 2 & 1 in perfect conditions to capture the 2017 Rocky Mountain PGA Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship presented by Bridgestone Golf and supported by OMEGA & The PGA TOUR for the third time having done so previously in 2009 and 2014. In the Senior Division, Pierce Park Greens PGA Director of Instruction Kevin Burton from Boise, Idaho, captured his second consecutive title beating host PGA Head Professional Mike Hamblin 1 up. Burton added this second Senior title to his collection of two other regular division titles in this event. Unseasonably warm and benign weather combined with excellent course conditions allowed the players to truly focus on their opponents this final day as the players completed their matches over the 2-day championship.
The Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship was contested at the picturesque 6,454 yard par-72 layout at Blue Lakes Country Club in Twin Falls, Idaho, on October 16th and 17th.
The Rocky Mountain Section and the Snake River Chapter of the PGA would like to thank Blue Lakes Country Club host PGA Professional Mike Hamblin and his willing and helpful staff who put forth the effort to keep this as one of the premier events in the Snake River Chapter. Appreciation is also extended to Bridgestone Golf territory managers, David Gubbels and Matt Seare for their sponsorship and continued support of this Championship. Thanks also to OMEGA and The PGA TOUR for their gracious support.
