Pro-Pro Match Play Round 1 Comes to an exciting Finish
Troy Pare, PGA (Ledgemont CC) and Jeff Martin, PGA (Norton CC) shot a nine under par 63 in the first day of the Pro-Pro Match Play Championship at LeBaron Hills Country Club on Monday. The power duo is followed closely by Sean Warren, PGA (Falmouth CC) and Chad Spencer, PGA (Valley CC) who also finished with a nine-under 63.
Pare and Martin seem to always find themselves at the top of the leaderboard for this event. In fact, they’re the defending champions, with wins in 2013, 2012, and 2011. Since the event’s creation in 2007, they haven’t placed out of the top 5.
In Monday’s match they seemed to have everything working once again. As a pair, they had a clean card, making nine total birdies. They made birdie on holes 4, 5, 6 and 9 to make the turn at 4 under. Building on this momentum and some helping winds on the back nine, they combined for a first round total of nine under par 63.
