History at the Hills

Pare & Martin Capture Record 4th Pro-Pro Match Play Title

Lakeville, MA

 

In the relatively brief yet storied history of the New England PGA Pro-Pro Match Play, there have been 24 different teams to capture the title.  Within those 24 teams, there have been 14 Professionals who have won multiple Pro-Pro Match Play titles.  There are four Professionals who have won the event four times; Paul Parajeckas (’89, ’94, ’98, ’04),  Frank Dully (’98, ’03, ’06, ’14), and the team of Troy Pare & Jeff Martin (’07, ’10, ’12, ’15).  And today’s victory for Pare and Martin is just a bit sweeter, as they become the first duo in the 30 year history of the event to capture the trophy four times together.

Rookies Austin & Jankowski to face 3x Champs Pare & Martin in Pro-Pro Match Play Finals

Lakeville, MA

 

Over two days at LeBaron Hills, through 18-holes of stroke play by 35 teams, followed by 10 matches played in less than 24 hours, we have our final two teams for the 2015 NEPGA Pro-Pro Match Play.  Day two features the top eight teams, and after securing bye’s through qualifying, guarantees seeds 1-4 will play at least one match on day two.  Today, each of those seeds showed why they earned those bye’s for a reason.

The Wait is Over

Pro-Pro Match Play Kicks Off NEPGA Season


Lakeville, MA

This week on the 2015 calendar seems to be a popular pick for match play, with the best PGA TOUR players participating in the WGC Match Play in California, and our New England Section Professionals competing in the Pro-Pro Match Play at LeBaron Hills.  The Qualifying and First Round Matches had a San Francisco feel, as damp and cool weather covered the golf course, which seems to be customary this time of year.

Despite the frigid temperatures for much of the day, 35 teams converged for the qualifying round, in hopes of being one of the top 12 teams that would advance to match
play later that afternoon, or even better, earn one of the coveted Bye’s for the top four teams to qualify.  When all was said and done, a score of 3-under par 69 was good enough to qualify for match play, with exactly 12 teams shooting that number or better.  While there is usually a playoff for the final qualifying spots, this year featured a 3-for-1 playoff for the final Bye, with three teams tied at 5-under par 67.

NEPGA Member Bob Beach Wins 2014 Conrad Rehling Award

First presented in 2005, the Rehling Award honors the late PGA Master Professional who followed a successful collegiate coaching career at Florida and Alabama by transforming his retirement into inspiring PGA Professionals to give back to those with intellectual and physical disabilities. Rehling died in April 2007 at age 87. Rehling was the founding father of the Special Olympics Golf movement in 1988, and spearheaded The PGA of America’s efforts to introduce golf to Special Olympics. The Association and its more than 28,000 men and women professionals have dedicated countless hours, services and funding to the growth of Special Olympics Golf.

Beach has spent most of his 23-year PGA career of helping all people facing intellectual, developmental,  and physical challenges. He does not recognize the word "disability", only the phrase "different abilities". Bob's work over many years providing support and encouragement to our veterans won him the highly prestigious PGA of America's Patriot Award in 2013, and last year, was among the winners of the Myra Kraft Foundation for continuous community service.

Pictured is George Kent,
Development Officer for Massachusetts Special Olympics; Kevin Riordan, a friend of Bob’s with different abilities who played on the Braintree Golf Team and also worked for Bob at Braintree; NEPGA Head Professional Bob Beach, PGA and NEPGA President Larry Kelley, PGA.
