Kubisa credits part of his success to playing at a quicker pace and with confidence at the end of the 36-hole stretch.

 

“It kind of fits my game to just move quickly,” Kubisa said. “The holes go really quick when you’re playing in two-somes, you don’t have much time to think about where you are on the golf course, and I think that helped a lot today.”

 

Jim McGovern of White Beeches, who is a two-time Head Pro Championship winner and won the Walter Syring Trophy at Alpine in 2015, finished in a tie for fourth with a 4-over 73-75 148.

 

Kubisa joins Frank Esposito Jr., McGovern, and Steve Sieg as a multiple winner of the Head Pro Championship.

 

“There’s a lot of great players in this Section, and you just never know when you’re going to play well enough to win,” Kubisa said. “It’s nice to win it twice and get it done.”
