Steve Cox, PGA Leads Team to Feeders Supply Pro-Am Title
Cox/Klinglesmith/Beams/Martin take first-place at Lake Forest.
LOUISVILLE, KY (October 6, 2022) – The final pro-am of the Kentucky PGA’s 2022 tournament season belongs to Steve Cox, PGA Head Golf Professional at Larue County Country Club and his amateur teammates Pat Klinglesmith, Terry Beams, plus Kerry Martin.
The triumphant foursome prevailed by two strokes in the Feeders Supply Pro-Am at Lake Forest Country Club on Thursday. They and 24 other teams competed under a shamble format where the two best net scores on every hole were used to determine the leaderboard. Cox/Klinglesmith/Beams/Martin took under-par scores on all but four holes, helping them prevail over Keith Ohr, PGA/Todd Berger/Rob Longwell/Rick Robey.
With his own ball, Cox topped the leaderboard in the low senior professional contest as well. He shot 68 (-4) with six birdies to win that competition by six strokes. Among the Professionals aged 49 or under, Sara Stephens, PGA was the top player after a round of 68 (-4) of her own. She bested her husband Andrew and Colby Wollitz, PGA by one stroke to take that honor.
NOTES & STATS
- Jimmy Lyons won a closest-to-the-hole competition for the amateurs on the 13th hole. He nearly jarred it, finishing just nine inches away.
