Erick starts 2013 the way he ended 2012
Charlestown, RI -
The New England PGA kicked off their season long Stroke Play Series at Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Charlestown, RI this afternoon. This rustic gem saw 78 PGA Professionals take to the course for their first individual stroke play competition of the season. The weather was cold and windy, but manageable for most, as the course yielded just three scores under par for the day.
The first score posted under par was by our eventual champion, Boomer Erick, PGA of Boston Golf Club. The name may sound familiar to the field, because Erick won the final NEPGA Stroke Play Series event of 2012. He carded a -3 (66) at Plymouth Country Club in September 2012 to end his season on a high note, and would return to action Stroke Play Series action again in 2013 with the same result. Erick posted a -3 (68) highlighted with 6 birdies in total. The score was good enough for a 1 stroke victory over Norton Country Club’s Jeff Martin, PGA and Sankaty Head Golf Club’s Jake Pleckowski, PGA who both carded -2 (69) in their first event. Erick’s 68 was posted in just the third group off the tee, and was never bested.
