Labritz racked up victories at the New York State Open at Bethpage Black, won the US Open Local Qualifying Round, and the Metropolitan Head Professional Championship, and had top finishes at the Metropolitan Open (third place) and the New England Open (fifth place). He clinched the title with a solo second place finish in the Treiber Memorial.
“This win is a product of hard work and dedication. I’ve been working for it all year long. Day after day, I spent countless hours at GlenArbor’s Short Game Center practicing every possible shot from within 125 yards of the pin, chipping and putting. I am very fortunate to have access to such incredible facilities.”Labritz and the GlenArbor Short Game Center was featured in an article I wrote a couple of years ago for Westchester Magazine.
Labritz was also named 2008 Westchester PGA Player of the Year, earning this title for the third time in six years.
