Glory for Grogan With Successful Vivacom BlackSeaRama Pro-Am Defence2 min read

Posted on: 17th Jul 2015

PGA of Germany Professional, Jonathan Grogan, took the winners’ honours and a cheque for €3,700 after he successfully defended his title in the 7th Vivacom BlackSeaRama Pro-Am.

Grogan returned to BlackSeaRama Golf & Villas for the final round of the Pro-Am having taken the Individual Professional title almost exactly 12 months ago, and managed to convert his overnight lead into a win with a closing one-under 71 for a six-under (209) total.

“The greens were absolutely fantastic today,” said Grogan.  “They were very quick and a real credit to the greens staff; they must have given them a shave down and they were like lightening to be honest.”

“I think the courses suit my game but the wind does too…I’m used to hitting punch shots etc. because of where I come from.  I drove the ball fantastically well this week – Thracian was one of the best days I’ve ever had on a golf course driving the ball.”

“We brought two teams this year…every single one of the players is just blown away by how good this place is, and we’d recommend it to anyone, it’s absolutely fantastic.”

Grogan began the day with just a single shot buffer over eventual second place Marco Bernardini (PGA of Italy), which was immediately recovered by Bernardini after he opened with a birdie.  But Grogan’s round got up and running when he made birdies at holes three and six to move to a total of seven-under through the turn.

Three regulation pars followed but a birdie two at 13 moved him well ahead at eight under, by which time Bernardini has already closed with a double-bogey at 17 and a single-bogey at 18 to end his challenge with a 74 and a three-round total of 213 (-2).

Despite a double-bogey on the 18th hole, Grogan was able to close with a four shot advantage over the field and become a two-time PGAs of Europe Sanctioned Event winner.


In the Team Pro-Am competition PGA of Bulgaria Chairman, Richard Lane, and his amateur teammates of Andon Tushev, Liubomir Tushev and Kasimir Balakovo [pictured above] finished with a final round 87 points to give a combined total of 260 points (-44).

Honourable challenges from the chasing teams meant that Team Lane’s victory was by just a single point.  A final 90 points from Professional, Danilo Kraljevic (PGA of Serbia), who also took third place in the individual, along with team mates Boris Damjanovic, Aleksander Demic, and Jasna Damjanovic, gave them second place on countback with 259 points (-43), ahead of Grogan and his amateurs, Michael Gustke, Megan Kelly, and Heiko Van Bergen, who took third.
