Huntsville, AL (April 3, 2019) — The Alabama – NW Florida PGA Stroke Play Series presented by the PGA Tour continued with the playing of the second event in the series at Huntsville Country Club, a classic and refreshing style course opened in 1925 and redesigned in 1990 by John Lafoy. Forty-four players teed it up on a chilly first day of April — it would be Clay Brown, PGA Associate at Shoal Creek Club in Birmingham, who fired a 4-under par 67 to take the title by two shots.
Following close behind was Ned Martin of Repar Golf, Todd McCorkle of Old Overton Club and Jordan Debonis of The Ledges who all finished at 2-under par. Ned Martin was out of contention until his last hole of the day, the par-5 second, when he made an eagle-3 to move himself in to a tie for second place. Finally, Eric Williamson of Shoal Creek Club rounded out the under-par group with a 1-under par round of 70.
The Alabama – NW Florida PGA would like to extend its thanks to PGA Head Golf Professional, Brad Story, and the rest of the Huntsville Country Club staff for hosting a great event for the Section’s professionals.
