The Southern California Senior PGA Professional Championship at El Camino Country Club crowned a first-time Champion today. Defending Champion Chris Starkjohann, PGA of Torrey Pines Gold Club & Outings may have been an early favorite for good reason: El Camino is home to the four-time champion of the event. Tied for the first round lead with Barry Clayton, PGA of Westin Mission Hills, it looked even more possible for Starkjohann to capture a sixth title in nine years. However, steady play from start to finish would help Mike Nokes, PGA of Stadium Golf Center capture the first Section Championship of the season.Read More

A story that has become unto familiar in the SCPGA’s Inland Empire Chapter has found a way to make headlines in the AAA Division. Michael Drake, of Canyon Crest Country Club, and Kenny Pigman, of Goose Creek Golf Club, managed to outlast one of the largest AAA fields of the year with each firing an impressive 5-under (67) and sharing the title, purse and points from this great stroke play event that is becoming a yearly tradition at South Hills Country Club in West Covina, CA. This is Pigman’s second straight AAA Stroke Play title, and with this win he vaulted himself into the top spot of the AAA Player of the Year standing. Drake matched Pigman stroke for stroke, and claimed his second AAA title of 2014 after winning the inaugural AAA/Women’s Pro-Pro Mixed Scramble back in May. Larry Correa, of La Purisima Golf Club, used seven birdies on the front nine to climb the leaderboard and finish with an impressive 4-under (68) to take third place all to himself. Joshua Kelley, of Twin Lakes GC, took fourth place, and was the last player to shoot under par when he posted his 3-under (69). The AAA Player of the Year standings are getting tighter and tighter after each event, and this week was no different as Dean Tonneslan, La Jolla Country Club, fell from the top spot for the first time in 2014. Players are battling for the last few spots on the AAA North/South Cup Team, as we only have two more events where points can be earned to represent the section against the Northern California PGA. Please visit www.scpga.com or contact Dave Kuhn at the SCPGA offices for more information or if you have any questions. Once again, thank you to everyone for their continued support of the AAA and we are excited to see everyone in Fallbrook on October 9th.
