PGA PROFESSIONAL BRETT JONES (DUE PROCESS STABLE GC) EARNS A SPOT TO COMPETE IN THE 2015 PGA CHAMPIONSHIP THIS AUGUST AT WHISTLING STRAITS
The Philadelphia Cricket Club hosted 312 PGA Professionals (including 13 NJPGA Professionals) in the PGA Professional National Championship, June 28th - July 1st, all of whom either qualified in their respective Section Championships or were exempt. The ultimate goal of these competitors was to finish in the top 20 and earn a berth in the 2015 PGA Championship this coming August at Whistling Straits in Kohler Wisconsin. Head PGA Professional at Due Process Stable GC, Brett Jones, did just that and closed out his final holes on the Wissahickon Course with birdie-birdie to place tied for 5th.
Jones headed to the Philadelphia Cricket Club this week on a bit of hot streak on the local level winning the last three Major Championships of the NJPGA Section dating back to October of 2014 with a win at the Ridge of Back Brook in the Fall Finale. Following the Fall Finale victory and his 2014 NJPGA Player of the Year honor, Jones continued his winning ways in 2015 capturing the Greg Norman Match Play Championship this spring as well as holing out from 140 yards in his final hole to win the Lincoln Charity Clambake.
Brett will now head to Whistling Straits representing Due Process Stable and the New Jersey PGA Section to test his game against the best PGA Tour Professionals in the world. The PGA Championship will be contested August 13th-16th with TV coverage on TNT.
