Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, NJ hosted the National Car Rental NJPGA Assistant Championship presented by The PGA Tour on Monday, August 17th. Eighty-three Assistant PGA Professionals and Apprentices competed in the 36-hole championship on both the North & South Course in hopes to qualify for 6 spots into the 39th National Car Rental PGA Assistant Championship at the PGA Golf Club, October 29th – November 1st. Brian Mackey (White Beeches Golf & Country Club) went 69 on the South Course and finished his day with 71 on the more difficult North Course to end up at 4-under par and win the Championship. Brian is still working to gain his PGA Apprenticeship so he will not be eligible to compete in the National Championship but congratulations on a great Section Assistant Championship!
Representing the New Jersey PGA at the PGA Golf Club will be Craig Smith (Somerset Hills CC), Marc Issler (Toms River Golf Center), Richard Terga (Mountain Ridge CC), Bryan Dougherty (Navesink CC), Joe Galan (Alpine CC) & Tyler Hall (Upper Montclair CC).
