Winner of the 2020 Cape Cod PGA Match Play Championship (left) Kyle Dobbs, PGA Teaching Professional at The Bay Club edged runner-up and former NEPGA Section Champion John Hickson, PGA Teaching Professional at Chequessett Yacht & CC at the gorgeous LeBaron Hills GC, Lakeville, MA.
Dobbs, who won 1-up in the final match had to negotiate other fine colleagues enroute as he nipped 5X winner of the Match Play and his current boss!! Greg Yeomans, PGA GM while Hickson also had a rough road to the finals, beating another former champ Tom Tobey, PGA HP Sandwich Hollows in the semi-finals.
Many thanks to LeBaron Hills Head Professional Tom Rooney for graciously inviting the chapter to hold this event, the 35th edition of the Match Play!
2020 Cape Cod PGA Chapter Champion JIM CLAY, PGA accepts the prestigious crystal trophy from Chapter President Ben Egan, PGA after defeating 29 golf pros at New Seabury, Sept. 10th to win his first title! Clay, the Head Pro at New Seabury used home field advantage as he was the sole player to record a pair of under par rounds in this one-day 36-hole affair - firing -2 under par 68 on the Dunes Course (par 70) coupled with a superb 71 (one under) on the venerable seaside links aptly named the Ocean Course at NS.
Tying for 3rd place in a statistical anomaly (paired together!) were Hyannisport's PGA Assistant Kyle Puzzo (left) and Allandale GC's PGA Head Professional Nick Jagoe as they both shot 71-72 143 for the day. In fact, both Kyle and Nick turned in exactly the same scores for all four 9-hole totals: 35-36/ 35-37. They were not over-joyed to see a pair of 68's lead the morning round nor the SIX colleagues who shot even par 70 on the inland Dunes course. At the end of the day, only Champion Clay and new PGA Assistant Kyle Dobbs from the Bay Club beat them. Dobbs was leading the event with three holes to play but two doubles were costly down the stretch, leaving him $760 to soothe his wounds. Clay took home $1,000 for his victory along with the donated crystal from Tournament Solutions, a MA based company offering an enormous number of quality gifts and golf awards.
