Pro_AssistantcroppedThe 2020 Acushnet Golf NEPGA Pro-Assistant was played on Monday, June 29 at the Bay Club and the Bay Club teams proudly represented the host Club.  This is the 13th consecutive year the Bay Club has hosted this section and player favorite event.

John Paesani and partner Greg Yeomans tied for first place with a seven under par, 64 in the team better ball competition.  They tied with Kernwood Country Club (Dully/Bramlett).  John and Greg played bogey free golf and, for the most part, each had looks on every hole, which is always the key in team golf.  Birdies at 2, 6, 7, 10, 12, 13 and 15 along with a key par saver at 5 propelled them to the top spot.  This is the second time John and Greg have won the Pro-Assistant title, having previously won in 2017.  Greg also won with Tracy Djerf in 2012.

The Bay Club team of Ben Egan and Kyle Dobbs rebounded from a slow start to rip up the back nine with a team better ball of 30 to post a four under par 67 and finish tied for seventh.  The duo, bogeyed the opening two holes but rallied with birdies on 6, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16 and 18 to turn things around and finish strong.  The teams had an especially impressive moment on the 13th hole when all four approach shots were within 8 feet of the cup as they surrounded the flag.  All in all, a T1 and T7 finish for the Bay Club against 81 other teams from 50+ Clubs around New England is an impressive feat.

The Bay Club teams were cheered on by a large member contingency that certainly kept the host pros excited and motivated to perform.  Greg commented that on the 4th hole it felt like one of the Club’s member shoot-out events, having all the members gathered around.  And it was especially extraordinary to see so many members return to watch the finish following a 90-minute rain delay.  The staff was very appreciative of the member spectators and as always values their support.

Congrats John, Greg, Ben and Kyle on the solid showing!

What’s New at the Bay Club Winter Golf Center and Pointers on Maximizing the Center’s Use

Now in its 7th year, the Bay Club’s Winter Golf Center is better than ever.  Following the closing of the golf course each year in December, the Golf Cart Barn is transformed into a Winter Golf Center; perfect for members looking to work on their golf game during the off-season.  The Center is complete with hitting bays, putting green, launch monitor and simulator.

The Center’s newest addition of Foresight Golf’s GCQuad provides multiple ways members can practice their swing indoors.  The system challenges golfers of all abilities with golf courses, a practice range, contests, and last but not least, ZOMBIE hunting. The GCQuad also takes our staff’s club fitting ability to the next level, allowing for the most professional fitting technology the Club has ever utilized.

How can members utilize the Winter Golf Center to its fullest potential? Bay Club Head Golf Professional, Ben Egan notes that one of his favorite benefits of practicing indoors is that distance doesn’t play a factor in your training, making it easier to focus on fundamentals and mechanics. If you don’t have a pre-shot routine, it’s a great time to make one. Ben suggests using the time indoors to focus on set up, posture and ball position. Members can also expect weekly tips, occasional drills and a suggested warm-up routine.  Ben notes, “we warm up for every other sport we play and golf should be no different – and hitting balls at the range doesn’t count!”

The Winter Golf Center is open daily for members and Ben is available throughout the winter to assist with club fittings, private lessons and additional tips.
