The 2015 edition of the Southern California PGA’s Senior Championship was held on August 24th and 25th at Oak Valley Golf Club in Beaumont, CA. The field at this year’s event was comprised of some strong players throughout the Section, ranging in age from 50 to 85 years old. The course was playing firm throughout the two day Championship and with warm temperatures in the upper 90’s made for a true test for the stacked field. The group of “experienced golfers” proved that tough conditions nor age is not factor in playing good golf. This statement was more than true for Tim Parun, PGA of The Loma Club who at the age of 55 shot back to back rounds of 69. Being two strokes down coming into the final round, Parun’s came out firing on the front nine of the final round, carding six birdies for a 31 and allowed him to climb back to the top of the leaderboard. The 6-under 138 total for the two days put Tim a mere stroke ahead of Starkjohann, who posted rounds of 70-69. Parun proved to be a birdie machine, knocking in 12 birdies over the 36 holes, with the most important coming on the final hole of the Championship. The victory was Tim’s second in the last five years at the Senior Section Championship, with his first coming in 2011. Congratulations and impressive playing Tim!Read More
The 2015 Yamaha Senior-Junior Championship showcased some of the best teams in Southern California, and their play did not disappoint. The field was comprised of many of the top players from the various chapters forming a two man team of a senior (age 50 and above) and a junior (age 49 and younger) playing a better ball format. The golf course was in great condition, and three teams navigated their way to an eight under par round of 64. This led to a three team playoff, which was won with a spectacular birdie on the first hole by the team of Jon Fiedler (PGA)/Kenny Pigman. Congratulations to the 2015 Senior-Junior Champions!Read More
