Pinehurst Pro-Am Success For Little1 min read


Posted on: 23rd Mar 2017

Former European Tour Member, Sam Little, completed a dominant wire-to-wire success at the Golfbreaks.com Pinehurst Pro-Am at the Pinehurst Resort in the USA.

 

“It has been fantastic,” said Little after a final round of 73 (+1) moved him to seven-under (281), 12-shots clear of the rest of the field. “I played solid all week…and Pinehurst has been a dream venue for me to come and play.

“To play on a golf course where guys have won the US Open is a great experience and I loved every minute of it.”

There was a tie for second between the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s, Darren Bragg, and the PGA of America’s, Troy Helseth, both of whom finished on five-over (293).

“I played well for two days and played okay for the other two days,” explained Helseth. “To be able to play a Donald Ross course here was unbelievable.”

Bragg carded the best round of the day, a four-under 68, which included a remarkable hole-in-one on the par 3 17th.

“I am completely speechless,” said Bragg. “To get a hole-in-one on Pinehurst No.2, on the last day of the event is an unbelievable feeling.”

The team of Helseth and amateurs David RobinsonDennis Rosenblum and Vic Cohen, ran away with the Pro-Am Competition, finishing with 346 points (-58).

Team Cutting were a distant second on 327 points (-39), with Team Little a further three points behind.
