Gimme Shelter

Martin Cuts through the Windy Conditions

-Charlestown, RI

 

Jeff Martin, PGA (Norton CC) shot a three-under-par 68 at Shelter Harbor Golf Club in Charlestown, RI to take the top spot at the opening event in the NEPGA’s 2017 Stroke Play Series. He beat out the next lowest competitor by two strokes.

 

Martin started in the very first group on Tuesday morning. Proving it to be more than just beginner’s luck, he made four birdies on the front nine with only one bogey on the eighth hole. The birdie he made on the third hole is most impressive as it was playing as the second-hardest hole on the course for the day. Even his bogey on eight is not as bad, as it’s rated as one of the 5 hardest holes at Shelter Harbor. On the back 9, Martin made two more bogeys but evened out the side with two birdies as well to finish at three-under-par 68 on the day.

 

The rest of the field was at least two strokes behind Martin. Greg Farland, PGA (Marlborough CC) finished T2 in Tuesday’s Field at one-under-par. A talented NEPGA field joins him at the T2 spot: Kirk Hanefeld, PGA (Salem CC), host PGA Professional Dave Tiedemann (Shelter Harbor GC), and Lou Rivers, PGA (Foxborough CC) all finished at one-under.

 

Sailing the Hudson

Essex's Bruso Takes Home His First Win

--Duxbury, MA

 

Assistant Professionals of the NEPGA have returned to Duxbury Yacht Club, perennial host to the Section’s Hudson Cup, on Thursday.  One of the major events for Assistants in New England, the Hudson Cup is named for long-time NEPGA Executive Director Susan Hudson, who was always a friend to the assistants in the section, and they paid her a fine tribute once again in 2017. 

 

With Duxbury’s golf course in exquisite shape, Robert Bruso of Essex County Club claimed the 2017 title, finishing a commanding four shots ahead of the next closest competitor.  While the weather conditions proved very difficult for most of the field, Bruso’s aggressive play was rewarded in the end, as he carded five birdies on the day.  He was especially dominant on the front nine, where he registered three birdies in a row, on holes two, three, and four, and another on the ninth.  He then settled down to a one-under-par 35 on the back nine, making only one bogey on the day to finish with a four-under-par 68.
