Edwards Takes First US-Based Golfbreaks.com Pro-Am Title2 min read


Posted on: 2nd Mar 2015

The 2015 Golfbreaks.com Pinehurst Pro-Am culminated with a storming performance from Wales’ Simon Edwards after a final round 68 saw him move up the leaderboard to win the Individual Professional event.

The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland Professional began the final round at Kiawah Island’s Turtle Point Course in third position but his bogey-free final round allowed him to leapfrog to the winner’s position.

“I Played great today,” said Edwards.  “I found something on the range this morning after two poor days of golf.  But windy conditions like this suit me – I grew up playing in conditions like this, but yeah I played good today.”

Edwards’ win came as the event had a last minute change in venue due to heavy snow from Pinehurst in North Carolina, USA, to Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina (statement: http://eur.pe/1zLDKsV).

“We travelled over to Pinehurst early when the weather went South over there,” said Edwards.  “So for Golfbreaks.com and the PGAs of Europe to organise coming down to Kiawah was phenomenal.”

The eventual winner mastered the windy conditions of the Turtle Point Course with four single birdies for his 68 and a tournament total of 220 (+4).

Round 2 second place, Peter Dahlberg (PGA of Sweden), finished in the same position having made a solid final 18-hole assault.

Two bogeys at eight and nine were cancelled out by birdies at 12 and 13, however a bogey four at the 16th hole took him to one over for the round (73) and an overall total of 224 (+8).

Overnight leader Martin Woodbridge (PGA of GB&I) was not able to capitalise on his lead and four single bogeys gave him a 76 for a three-round total of 225 (+9).

The Team Pro-Am event was won by PGA of America Professional, Darren McNeal, and his amateurs Tony Baker, Ben Segler, and Doug Vickers.  Their final round 80 points (-8) combined with their previous totals of 73 and 78 points gave a 231 point total (-15).

Four points behind with 227 points (-11) was Woodbridge and his team of amateurs, Dave Holden, Kevin Jones, and Steve Wilkes.
