LORENZ IS SNAKE RIVER CHAPTER PGA CHAMPION – HOLLOWAY GOES BACK TO BACK
The Rocky Mountain Section PGA Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship provided not only a test of golf but a bit of survival of the elements. Frigid temperatures and blustery winds kept every player in the field on edge, and in the end, Cole Lorenz, PGA Assistant Professional from the Valley Club in Sun Valley, Idaho, came alive on the final nine to overtake Justin Snelling, PGA Head Professional from The River Club in Boise, Idaho, closing the championship match on the 16th hole after an errant tee shot lead to a concession and the right to hoist the winner’s hardware.
On the senior side, PGA Head Professional Tad Holloway from TimberStone Golf Course in Caldwell, Idaho, outlasted host PGA Professional Mike Hamblin from Blue Lakes Country Club in Twin Falls, Idaho, 2 up, to earn the Senior Match Play title for the second consecutive year. Holloway never even saw the 15th hole through his first three matches winning in dominant fashion. Past champion Mike Hamblin would not go down so easily. The final match required all 18 to decide the Senior Chapter Champion of 2021.
The Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship presented by Mizuno and supported by ROLEX and The PGA TOUR was contested at the picturesque 6,454 yard, par-72 layout at Blue Lakes Country Club in Twin Falls, Idaho, on October 11th and 12th.
The Rocky Mountain Section and the Snake River Chapter of the PGA would like to thank the members of Blue Lakes Country Club and host PGA Professional Mike Hamblin and his willing and helpful staff who put forth the effort to keep this as the premier event in the Snake River Chapter. Appreciation is also extended to Mizuno sales representative Cody Faught for his support of this Championship. Thanks also to ROLEX and The PGA TOUR for their gracious and continued support of our professional championships.
