ANDERSON & CORTEZ GO LOW TO TAKE FALL PRO-PRO

Tom Anderson, PGA Head Professional at Laurel (Montana) Golf Club with his partner, PGA Assistant Professional Andrew Cortez from Yegen Golf Club in Billings, Montana, fired a tournament low 2nd round of 8-under-par, 64, to run away with the 2018 RMSPGA Fall Pro-Pro.  Their brilliant final round in the modified alternate shot format paired nicely with their first round total of 6-under-par, 66, for a two-round total of 14-under-par, 130, and a three shot victory.  PGA Assistant Professionals Nathan Ferrell and Tyler Bessinger from Whitetail Club in McCall, Idaho, bested their first round of 67 with a round of 66 to capture the 2nd place spot alone over two other teams.  A second day of terrific weather coupled with excellent course conditions paved the way for low scoring in the modified alternate shot final 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.

 

In the senior division, the team of PGA Head Professional Tim Reinke from Pinecrest Golf Course in Idaho Falls, Idaho, and PGA Head Professional John Lewis from Centennial Golf Course in Nampa, Idaho, shot a closing round of 2-under-par, 70, to go with their first round 65 to hold off PGA Life Members Buster Whitney from Caldwell, Idaho, and Bobby Howell from Chubbuck, Idaho.  The Reinke/Lewis team shot a two-round total of 9-under-par, 135, and won the senior division by 2 shots.

 

The better ball of partners and modified alternate shot rounds of the RMSPGA Fall Pro-Pro were played at the par 72, 6,720 yard Idaho Falls Country Club in Idaho Falls, Idaho, on October 1-2, 2018.  The Rocky Mountain PGA would like to thank Jason Jacobsen, PGA Head Professional, and the always hospitable members and staff of Idaho Falls Country Club for hosting the event and for the care shown to the competitors.  The Rocky Mountain PGA also extends its sincerest appreciation to the aforementioned sponsors for their kind and always generous support of the RMSPGA Fall Pro-Pro.
