The Blaisdell Pro-Am at Pennhills
Champion- Chris Stoddard
Congratulations to Chris Stoddard who won the 1st annual Blaisdell Pro-Am at Pennhills Invitational with a (-4) 66! This day would not have been possible if it wasn’t for George Duke, the owner of Zippo, who sponsored this fabulous event. Mr. Duke has a strong connection with The Pennhills Club and Zippo through his Grandfather, Goerge G. Blaisdell, who was the founder of Zippo and who hosted the first Zippo Open Golf Tournament at the Pennhills Club. The Zippo Open eventually faded away about 20 years ago, and Mr. Duke wanted to revive the tradition that use to be his grandfathers by hosting the first annual Blaisdell Pro-Am Invitational at The Pennhills Club. The tournament was absolutely spectacular and the WNYPGA is looking forward to many more years with Zippo!
