Kelowna golf pros win PGA BC Pro-Assistant Championship

James Presnail and Mark Kitts were four shots behind the leaders after the first round of the PGA of the 2021 BC Pro-Assistant Championship.

But the pros at Shadow Ridge Golf Club got down to the game on round two and posted a 13-under-par 59 on the scramble game, which gave them a one-shot win when all was said and done.

“I punched one on twelve to get us an eagle and come back and make up a few (missed opportunities). Then it just started. James started doing putts, ”Kitts explained.

“We never really thought that we would win or be there, but suddenly we knock on 18 and are somehow in the clubhouse with the leadership. It was a kind of shocker. “

“You got a great shot there, but unfortunately not,” explained Presnail.

“We were ready to go out there and thought we’d have to go against these guys. We’ve already talked about who would hit 18 because it’s a tough finishing hole here. “

For their efforts, Kitts and Presnail went home with the grand prize of $ 2,600.
