West Point, MS: The E-Z-GO Oliver Counce Six-Pro Championship was held on Monday, December 6th at Mossy Oak Golf Club. The field was comprised of thirteen teams. Congratulations to Team Robert Brown, PGA, Josh Riley, PGA, Tim Yelverton, PGA, Chris Jester, PGA, David Meyer, PGA, and Jason Prendergast PGA, on winning with eighteen under, 54!
Team Matt Brunetz, PGA, Joseph Hanko, PGA, Benji Williams, PGA, Kyle Ellis, Reed Hughes, PGA, and Bob Wolcott PGA, came in second with seventeen under, followed by Dean Baham, PGA, Ed Selser, PGA, Olly Thomson, PGA, Jacob Ross, and Ronny Ross PGA, with sixteen under.
In a post-tournament interview Chris Jester commented, “We had a great time today. We were as well rounded a team as you can get. Everyone contributed, we all made putts, we all used everybody’s drive. We just had a great time altogether. We pared #12, par 5, which you never want to do, but we made an eagle on #17 to make it up. We came around, #1 was our last hole, so we had one more birdie to go to shoot eighteen, and we got down to our 6th putter on the last hole to birdie, and Jason made it!”
