Hanefeld Captures Inaugural Avidia Bank Cup

Weston, MA


2-time New England PGA Player of the Year and 2015 Senior Champion Kirk Hanefeld, PGA of Stow Acres CC captured the inaugural Avidia Cup sponsored by Avidia Bank, which culminated today at Weston Golf Club in Weston, MA.  Hanefeld used a solid performance throughout the season to position himself in the Top-5 entering the Avidia Cup Finals, and his 3-under par 69 was good enough for solo second place and a grand total of 2,800 points, to overtake regular season points leader Rich Berberian, PGA of Windham Country Club.

Avidia Cup and Player-of-the-Year Races Coming Down to the Wire

The PGA Tour has the FedEx Cup, and now Thanks to our friends at Avidia Bank, the New England PGA will have its own event to reward players who have played consistently well throughout the season. The Avidia Cup Finals will be contested at the Weston Golf Club on Monday, October 5th.

This event is the end of a year long competition and includes the top seventy-five point earners who have secured their spots based on results from New England PGA Stroke Play Series events as well as their performance in events conducted in the five Chapters of the New England Section; Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

The elite 75 will come together with a chance to win the Avidia Cup Finals, a one-day shoot-out that has previously been known as the NEPGA Stroke Play Series Final.

However, with Avidia Bank coming on board as a sponsor, the Avidia Cup Finals will also determine the first NEPGA Professional whose name will be inscribed on the Avidia Cup trophy.

The inaugural winner of the Avidia Cup will be the player who, based on their year long play, has proven they are not only an exceptional player, but one who can sustain a high level of play throughout the entire season.
