The PebbleCreek Men’s Golf Association Club Championship was once again won by Jack Schafer. Jack won this championship for a record-setting seventh time (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2017, and 2018). He shot rounds of 69, 74, and 75 for a gross score of 218. This PCMGA major tournament was held on Feb. 4, 10, and 11, using all three of our courses.
In the first round, Jack shot three under par 69, making five birdies. Not playing great recently, this birdie-filled round gave him a boost of confidence and a two shot lead over PebbleCreek newcomer Wade Biddix. In the second round, Jack extended that lead over Wade by three more shots. Therefore, Jack headed into the third and final round with a five shot lead. Through eight holes in the final round, Wade cut Jack’s lead to three shots. However, Jack played solid, hitting lots of greens in regulation and matched Wade for the final 10 holes, completing his seventh PCMGA Club Championship with a three shot victory.
A total of 135 players competed in seven separate flights. The championship flight played from the black/blue combo tees. One flight played from the blue tees. Three flights played from the blue/white combo tees, and two flights played from the white tees. The championship and white tee flights played the East/West/Eagle’s Nest course rotation. The blue tee and blue/white tee flights played the West/Eagle’s Nest/East course rotation. The tournament also included an optional gross and net skins game.
