Here's a report from the Southern Texas PGA on its recent TaylorMade-adidas Assistants Championship:
Eric Bogar, an assistant golf professional at Westwood Country Club in Houston, defeated Tony Johnson, an assistant golf professional at San Antonio’s Siverhorn Golf Club, with a birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the 2005 Southern Texas PGA TaylorMade-adidas Assistants Championship.
Bogar and Johnson had finished 36-holes at The Club at Comanche Trace in Kerrville knotted at 8-under-par 136. Bogar, who won the event for the second year in a row, earned $1,000 for the victory; Johnson took home $800 for second place.
Nick Phillips, an assistant golf professional at Houston’s Royal Oaks Country Club, finished in third place at 68-70—148.
Bogar, Johnson and Phillips all qualified for advancement to the national TaylorMade-Adidas PGA Assistant Professional Championship. That tournament will take place Oct. 27-30, 2005, at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Chip Craig, an assistant professional at the Deerwood Club in Kingwood, Thomas Woflenberger, an assistant professional at Houston’s Pine Forest Country Club, and Kyle O’Brien, an assistant professional at Austin’s River Place Country Club, are the alternate qualifiers for the national tournament.
