Head Golf Professional, Greg Yeomans shot a final round 2 under par 70 (the second lowest round of the day) in the 2014 NEPGA Championship held at The Golf Club of New England in Stratham New Hampshire to finish in a tie for 15th.  His performance also tied him for the last of the 15 qualifying spots for the 2015 PGA Professional National Championship.

Greg was victorious in a thrilling playoff on the second hole making a par on the treacherous par 3.  Greg stayed alive after sinking a clutch 15’ par putt on the first playoff hole. Yeomans hit a precise 8 iron to a tiny island green and then calmly got up and down for a clutch par to secure the final spot. This will be Greg’s third appearance in the premiere championship for PGA Club Professionals. The event will be held June 28 – July 1, 2015 at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in Philadelphia, PA.

Way to go Greg!

Uihlein fires New Course Record at the Bay Club

Tuesday, 12. August 2014 17:14

PeterUihlein2014European Tour Professional, Peter Uihlein was home in Mattapoisett for a few weeks rehabbing from a mid season injury and appears to be finding his form as he broke the Bay Club course record firing a 63 on Friday, August 8.  Playing along with members Mike Hiller and John Lees and Head Professional, Greg Yeomans this friendly game seemed to bring out the best in everyone.  Peter birdied four in a row on holes 3 – 6 and with one bogey on the front turned at 32.  Throw in birdies on 11 and 13 and Peter was now 5 under with 4 to play.  Heading home into the strong afternoon southwest wind, Peter birdied 15, 16 and then rolled in a 6 footer on 18 to cap off his 63. Almost seven years to the day (August 5, 2007) Greg fired the previous course record of 65.  And guess who was in his group that day, that’s right Peter. What goes around comes around.

Great playing Peter and good luck on the home stretch of the season. Click here to view the old and new course record.
