Finish with a Major Statement was a fitting theme for our 2014 NFPGA Section Championship! A statement was made in all three divisions! Rod Perry, Crane Lakes started the final round 4 back of Greg Koch, Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes. Rod shot 31 on the front to take the lead at the turn and closed with 34 to win the championship by 3 shots. Rod finished the 54-hole competition at 13 under par on the challenge Watson Course at Reunion Resort. Senior Barry Cheesman, Tatum Ridge had a fine showing, as he was also in the final grouping. Barry made his statement by defeating Gerry James, Golf Club of South Hampton in a sudden death playoff by birdieing the 3rd playoff hole to win the Senior Section Champion title finishing 6 under for the championship. Finally, Bob Dickson, Ponte Vedra Beach made his statement by bettering and matching his age in 2 of the 3 rounds of the Legends Division to take the Legends title at 4 under! He’s still got game! What a great week of golf, highlighted by our National Car Rental Section Pro Am on the Monday before the championship. Shawn Gordon, Carrollwood CC and his partner Hal Cohen shot 12 under to win. We also held the Global Golf Million Dollar Challenge after round two. Freddy Gibson, Golf Ed won the closest to the pin contest with a fine shot to about 8 feet from 220! 37 eligible professionals took a shot for a million dollars! NFPGA Executive Director/CEO Rich Smith took a shot too and knocked it to 10 feet! It was a great week of golf, competition and camaraderie! It’s always great to see our PGA Professionals who participate for the love of the game and competition! That’s what being a PGA Professional is all about!
