ABELS OUTLASTS TIGHT FIELD TO BECOME 2022 SECTION CHAMPION
The wind… The single most challenging natural element in golf was a supreme factor in the 2022 Rocky Mountain PGA Professional/Section Championship presented by Cadillac, Club Car, and ROLEX, and supported by Titleist/FootJoy, Callaway, Nike, TaylorMade, Golf Channel, and the PGA TOUR. At the end of two blustery days, Zach Abels, PGA Head Professional at Canyon Springs Golf Course in Twin Falls, Idaho, stood alone as champion.
Vaughn Jenkins, PGA – Zach Abels, PGA – Chad Dillon, PGA
Section Exec. Director – 2022 Champion – Host Professional
Abels’ rounds of 75-73=148 were just good enough as he nipped defending champion Nathan Ferrell, PGA Head Professional at Kendrick Municipal Golf Course in Sheridan, Wyoming, and Fred Sutton, PGA Head Golf Coach at Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, by a single shot.
The above three gents have qualified, by virtue of this finish, along with Spencer Smith and Ben Polland, both PGA Professionals from Shooting Star in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in to the 2023 PGA Professional Championship.
The 2022 RMSPGA Championship was contested at Yellowstone Country Club in Billings, MT, on August 22nd and 23rd. The Section wishes to thank host PGA Professional Chad Dillon, his staff, and the membership at Yellowstone CC for their kind hospitality and for allowing us the privilege of playing their truly great Robert Trent Jones Sr. venue for our most significant championship. Thanks also goes out to attending supporting sponsors, Chris McCallum from Titleist, Travis Allen from FootJoy, Jon Fellows from Callaway, and John Johnson from TaylorMade. Your collective attention to us is so very much appreciated!
