One of the Met PGA Section's most entertaining events will be held at Brynwood Golf & Country Club in Armonk on April 14. It's the Taylor Made/Adidas Pro/Assistant Better Ball, where a head professional teams up with an assistant pro to take on their compatriots in the section. One of the PGA Met Section most popular and coveted championships, it will be hosted at Brynwood for the first time.
“Brynwood is very proud to host such a prestigious PGA event in the MET section such as the 2014 PGA MET Section Professional-Assistant Championship,” says Josh Lowney, PGA Professional and Brynwood General Manager. “The MET section includes some of the best Golf Professionals in the world and Brynwood is an ideal venue to test their skills. Brynwood will represent two teams with PGA Professional and General Manager Josh Lowney fielding one and Head Golf Professional, Michael Mercadante showcasing another.
Also in the field will be defending champion Chris Case from Mount Kisco, 2013 PGA Championship competitors Rob Labritz from GlenArbor and Danny Balin from Burning Tree, and dozens of others. The head pro will team with each individual assistant, so he can have multiple games going in the tournament, making for some fun by-play on the course.
Met PGA Executive Director Charlie Robson said, “The MET PGA is excited to bring this Championship to Brynwood for 2014. The Brynwood Member experience has innovated the country club industry and produced a resort style, private country club feel. Our Golf Professionals are looking forward to experiencing the life of a Brynwood Member.”
