History Making Win for Scott Spence

Carnegie Abbey's Director of Instruction ~ Scott Spence made New England golf history today racking up his second Section Major Title in one year at the 86th Annual NEPGA Championship!  This event, held at the Woodlands Club and Portland CC in Falmouth, Maine August 24 ~ 26th, was paired down to 36 holes due to severe rainstorms.  Scott told me that he "plays better in inclement weather conditions and he just hit a few less shots than the rest of the 162 guys!"  Humble to a fault Scott actually played the majority of his second round in the torrential downpour yesterday ~ finishing 16 holes so his round today was short and sweet  ~ he birdied the last two holes finishing up with a score of -3 69.  Scott said, "I've been on a pretty good streak lately winning the New England
PGA Senior Championship a few weeks ago at  Okemo Valley shooting 67 ~ 68 and the winners trophy was presented to me by PGA President Jim Remy which was great!
Plans for the future? Scotts "confident in my game and looking forward to going to Cooperstown to a course I grew up on playing in a tournament I have won on three other occasions then it's off to New Hampshire to defend my title at the New England Open the second week in September, things are good." The NEPGA Championship serves as a qualifier for the 2011 PGA Professional National Championship to be held at Hershey, PA. next June.  For complete results on the top 11 qualifiers click on the link:
