SLOTTEN WINS EPIC FINAL MATCH – HOLLOWAY RAISES SENIOR TROPHY
The Rocky Mountain Section PGA Snake River Chapter Championship officially ends tournament season and it went down in dramatic fashion. Zayne Slotten, PGA associate professional from Twin Falls, Idaho, had a 3-up lead with 4 holes to play against PGA Teaching Professional Travis Hofland, also from Twin Falls, when things got interesting. Hofland simply refused to go away putting pressure on Slotten with a birdie on the 15th. Slotten left a makeable putt on the final hole just shy which forced extra holes. The matter at hand was decided on the 21st hole with Hofland burning an edge and Slotten burying an 8-foot birdie after both hit excellent tee shots on the 220-yard 17th hole.
On the senior side, PGA Head Professional Tad Holloway from Boise, Idaho, won both his semi-final and final match this day without a bogey. Holloway defeated host PGA Professional Mike Hamblin from Twin Falls, Idaho, 6 & 5 to earn the Senior Match Play title and the first-place crystal.
The Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship was contested at the picturesque 6,454 yard par-72 layout at Blue Lakes Country Club in Twin Falls, Idaho, on October 12th and 13th.
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.
