Proehl, Giannetto, Ranney and McCarty in the Hunt at the PGA Senior-Junior Team Championship
Pt. St. Lucie, Florida – Four Iowa PGA Professionals traveled 1,400 miles to be paired together at 9:13 am in round three of the PGA Senior-Junior Team Championship at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida on the Wanamaker Golf Course.
They put on quite a show of eagles, birdies and a rare albatross (double eagle) to get back into the hunt going into tomorrow’s final round of the Championship.
Iowa PGA Members Chad Proehl of Sugar Creek Golf Course and Jay Giannetto of Elmwood Country Club shot a second-round 61 to sit in a tie for 2nd place in the Championship. The pair combined for 12 birdies and one lone bogey. Giannetto rolled in five birdies on the front nine and followed with two more on the back nine. Proehl made one birdie on the front and four on the back-nine. The pair sits at twenty-five under par (60-70-61=191) and tee off at 10:01 am in the final pairing on the Wanamaker Golf Course.
Dave Ranney of Lamoni Golf & Country Club and Sean McCarty of Brown Deer Golf Club fired a third round 64 on the Wanamaker Course to sit in a tie for 8th place. Their round included two-hole outs came from the fairway. McCarty lofted a 5-iron from 185 yards out on the par-5 seventh hole to score the rare double eagle. So rare that it was McCarty’s fifth double eagle, including one on a par 4. Ranney holed out a pitching wedge from 135 yards on the par-4 tenth hole. Their round included the very rare albatross (double eagle), one eagle, four birdies and one lone bogey. The pair sits at twenty-one under par (67-64-64=195) and tee off at 9:17 am.
Good luck to these four Iowa PGA members on their quest to win the Senior-Junior Title.
