Moore and Switzer capture first Pro-Pro of 2023.

SIMPSONVILLE, KY (April 10, 2023) – Mitchell Moore, PGA and Tadd Switzer are the champions of the Kentucky PGA’s first Pro-Pro of the season. At University of Louisville Golf Club, the western Kentuckians took first place in the Pro-Pro Shamble presented by Cunningham | Yamaha and supported by Bushnell & Hole-In-One USA.

The champions recorded a bogey-free round of 60 (-12) which featured seven consecutive birdies from holes 8-14. That stretch highlighted their day and propelled them to a one-stroke margin of victory over Vince Prather, PGA and Jeremy Martin.


  • Matt Bloom authored the shot of the day with a hole-in-one on the par-three 8th. Bloom and his partner Gabe Wheeler each received a bottle of Elijah Craig courtesy of Cunningham | Yamaha while Bloom will also get $250 thanks to Hole-in-One USA.
  • The par-five 17th was the easiest hole on Monday with a stroke-to-par average of -0.71. 26 teams recorded birdie or eagle on the 17th.
  • Hole 7 was the hardest of the competition with the par-four playing +0.17. Only one birdie was made here, the fewest of any hole, which came from Keith Reese, PGA and Erin Horn, PGA.
  • The course average was 69.01 (-2.99) with the front nine playing 0.57 strokes easier than the back nine.
