METAIRIE, LA – The Fourth Annual Gulf States PGA Bushnell/Sun Mountain/Tournament Solutions Three Pro Scramble Championship presented by Yamaha and Silver Slipper Casino Hotel named its Champions for 2016 at Timberton Golf Club in Hattiesburg, MS on Monday, April 4th.
This was the first Gulf States PGA event that we enabled “live on-course scoring”. The response was great to this new way of scoring and will be used at upcoming events.
Out of thirteen teams totaling thirty-nine players, this year’s winners included PGA Professionals Tyler Kuhn, Marshall Saxon, and PGA Apprentice Greg Sonnier. Winning by three strokes, Marshall Saxon, Greg Sonnier of Lake Charles Country Club, along with Tyler Kuhn of Gray Plantation Golf Club joined forces to shoot 17-under-55.
Tyler Kuhn, the Captain, stated, “We had a lot of fun together. It was a great event.” “That was the biggest key, we never felt any pressure and kept building on the momentum after the first hole.” “We would like to say thank you to Josh Lampley, Mike Scardino, and Jeff with Yamaha, the entire staff at Timberton, and the Gulf States PGA staff for such a great tournament.”
PGA Professionals Obie Agbasi, Jabir Bilal, and Henry Pointer took the runners-up position finishing the day at 14-under-58.
The Gulf States PGA Section would like to thank Josh Lampley with Bushnell, Sun Mountain, and Tournament Solutions, Jeff Jungers with Yamaha, and Mike Scardino with Silver Slipper Casino Hotel for sponsoring this promising Section event. The Section also wishes to thank host PGA Professional Richard Walsh, PGA Professional Owner/General Manager Ron Hickman, and the staff of Timberton Golf Club for their assistance in making this event possible.
