He played very well to start off the second round firing a (-1) 35 on the front but had a couple blunders on the back to shoot 40, recording a final round (+3) 75 which was just enough to take the victory! For our Super Senior Division (60-69) our Champion was Bobby Hogan recording a two day total of (+9) 153, and our Classic Division (+70) Champion was Denny Lyons shooting a (+6) 78! This was also a qualifier to earn a spot into this year’s Senior PGA Professional Championship that will be held at the PGA Golf Club, Port St. Lucie, Florida November 13-16, 2014.

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!
