KELBI LEE IS THE 2019 RMSPGA YELLOWSTONE CHAPTER CHAMPION
Every year someone from somewhere does a “study” on how much money you could make (a whole lot) if you just shot par every round on The PGA TOUR. Well, par was actually one better than Kelbi Lee, PGA Head Professional at Black Bull in Bozeman, Mont., needed to capture the 2019 RMSPGA Yellowstone Chapter Championship. After a first round of even-par, 72, left Lee one shot off the lead, he matched his first day’s effort with another 72 to finish 2 shots clear of first round leader Andrew Cortez, PGA Assistant Professional at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Mont. Kelbi’s brother, Renzi Lee, PGA Head Professional at Lake Hills Golf Club in Billings, Mont., maintained his 3rd place position on the leaderboard finishing 5 shots off the champion’s pace. This victory by Kelbi Lee caps off an impressive 30-day stretch where he also won the Section Championship last month.
The 2019 JC Golf Accessories RMSPGA Yellowstone Chapter Championship, supported by Antigua, The PGA TOUR and OMEGA was contested at the 6,800 yard, par 72, layout at Big Sky (Montana) Resort Golf Course on Monday and Tuesday, September 23-24. The Rocky Mountain Section would like to thank Big Sky Resort Golf Course host PGA Professional Mark Wehrman and his staff for hosting the event and for their kind hospitality. Sincere appreciation goes to Chris Jenkins of JC Golf Accessories for supporting the Members and Associates of the Yellowstone Chapter. Thanks also to Antigua and representative Charley Carlson, The PGA TOUR and OMEGA for their generous support.
