A LOGJAM AT THE TOP IN THE 2018 RMSPGA FALL PRO-PRO

THREE TEAMS TIED FOR THE LEAD IN 2018 ROCKY MOUNTAIN SECTION PGA FALL PRO-PRO

 

John Van Vleet, PGA General Manager at Preston (Idaho) Golf & Country Club and his partner, PGA Life Member Dave Carollo from Eagle, Idaho, were not the only team to shoot 7-under-par, 65.  That fine round was good enough to share the lead with the team of Jim Empey, PGA Director of Instruction at Quail Hollow Golf Club in Boise, Idaho, with Matt Ennis, PGA General Manager at Quail Hollow.  PGA Assistant Professionals from The Valley Club in Sun Valley, Idaho, Cole Lorenz and Jacob Hanson were the third duo to fire 65 and share the top spot.  An absolutely perfect day coupled with excellent course conditions produced good scores after the better-ball of partners first round.  The RMSPGA Fall Pro-Pro is supported by Charley Carlson of JC Golf Accessories, Mike Langley of Dynamic Brands, Bag Boy and New Balance, Matt Novak and Cody Faught of Mizuno, Jeff Smith of adidas Golf, GolfStatus, OMEGA and The PGA TOUR.
