Rebne finished on top of the leaderboard with a low score of 1-under through 36 holes. Rebne completed his Tuesday round with a score of 69, just enough to solely claim first place. “My wife has already put last year’s trophies in the attic,” said Rebne. “It is nice to win some new ones to display.”

 

 

 

This year, the Tennessee Section had 5 qualifying spots to go to Port St. Lucie, FL to play in the Senior Professional National Championship at the Wanamaker Course.  Rounding out the spots of qualifying contestants are Steve Munson, Audie Johnson, David Hallford, and Joey Hickman. This was a Level One event, making it very competitive.

 

The low round of this year’s Championship was completed by Steve Munson on Tuesday. Munson shot a 2-under-par, 68. This was enough for Munson to secure a qualifying spot and narrowly miss first place by 2 strokes. Audie Johnson and David Hallford tied for 3rdplace two strokes behind Munson, sending Johnson and Munson to Port St. Lucie for the second year in a row. Joey Hickman finished only one stroke behind Johnson and Hallford to round out the 5 qualifying spots.

 

The Tennessee PGA would like to thank our generous sponsors, Mercedes-Benz and the PGA Tour for their support. We also want to thank Head Professional Matt O’Dell and the rest of his staff at Old Natchez Country Club. The Tennessee Senior Professional Championship was a success thanks to their flexibility and hard work!

I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)
