The 2014 Iowa PGA Junior Academy Stroke Play Event was held at Pheasant Ridge Golf Course in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Tuesday, June 17th. The Iowa PGA Junior Golf Academy is being held this week at Pheasant Ridge Golf Course and the attendees were teamed with the Iowa PGA Professionals who entered this event.
A total of seventeen teams competed, with each team consisting of one Iowa PGA Professional and three or four Junior Academy attendees.
A unique team format was used with the professionals playing their own ball and juniors playing a 3 or 4-person scramble. The juniors were able to use the professional’s drive twice within the round. The team score was either the professional’s score or the scramble score per hole, whichever was lower. An individual Open and Senior Division was also conducted for the professionals.
Special thanks to John Bermel, PGA Director of Golf, Darin Justice, Head PGA Professional, and the entire staff at Pheasant Ridge Golf Course for hosting this event and the Junior Academy!
