Downs/Whan/Douglas/Gentry Win Feeders Supply Pro-Am

LOUISVILLE, KY (October 7, 2021) – The final Pro-Am of the Kentucky PGA tournament season was held on Thursday at Lake Forest Country Club in the form of the Feeders Supply Pro-Am. Unlike several of the Section’s prior Pro-Ams this season, this one featured zero weather problems in what became a beautiful autumn day for twenty-five foursomes competing in Louisville.

For the second time this season, Nathan Downs, PGA Head Golf Professional at Greenbrier Golf & Country Club led the winning team after previously doing so in the Bill Long Mega Pro-Am presented by TaylorMade. This time at Lake Forest with a new set of teammates, it was Downs with Todd Whan, John Douglas and J.P Gentry who won with a score of 121 (-23).

The event’s format took the two best net scores on each hole from every team to formulate final scores. It was a crowded leaderboard at the top behind the Greenbrier squad, with the teams of Seth Hall/Matt Parker/Matt Thompson/Pep Caudill and Nick Johnston/Richard Chin/Steve Adams/Kevin Minnick finishing tied for second, one shot behind the winners.

Andrew Stephens scored his latest individual prize on the year, as he was the low professional with 67 (-5) in a round featuring seven birdies. Downs finished one shot back of him while Johnston, Tyler Oldham and Tom Walters finished in a tie for third place three shots back of Stephens.

Steve Shafer edged out Al Chrouser by a shot to take low senior professional honors. Shafer shot 74 (+2) to Chrouser’s 75 (+3) to clinch that victory.


  • Just one gross eagle was made throughout the day and it came on the par-five 2nd, courtesy of Chad Lancaster.
  • The easiest hole on the golf course was the opener, as the par-four 1st had a stroke-to-par average of -0.18. No hole had more gross birdies as thirty were made on it.
  • The closing hole, the par-four 18th, was the most difficult at +0.62. Only two gross birdies were recorded there.
  • The back nine was convincingly the tougher of the two sides as players averaged 38.15 on holes 10-18 compared to 37.41 on the front nine. Totaled together, the course average was 75.56.
