Rohrbaugh Does it Again!
Todd Creek Golf Club | September 8-10, 2014
Merriam-Webster defines impressive as deserving attention, admiration, or respect. That definition could not be more fitting of Doug Rohrbaugh and his golf game over the past year and a half and this past week was no different. Rohrbaugh defended his title and won the 2014 Colorado PGA Professional Championship at Todd Creek Golf Club by posting a twelve-under-par 204.
Over the past two years, the PGA Head Professional at Ironbridge Golf Club in Carbondale has strung together results that would rival anyone in Colorado’s illustrious golf history. Since turning 50, Rohrbaugh has won the HealthONE Colorado Senior Open, finished second the in HealthONE Colorado Open, played in multiple major championships and has now won two Colorado PGA Professional Championships.
The key for Rohrbaugh, like has been much of his run, has been his putter. “I putted so well this week” he noted after the event. “I had 24 or 25 putts each of the first two rounds and it really put me in good position.”
Jones Near Perfect in Colorado Senior PGA Championship
Heritage Eagle Bend Golf Club | August 18-19, 2014
After the run Doug Rohrbaugh has been on the past few years it was going to near perfection to knock off the two-timedefending champion of the Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship. Gregg Jones, a PGA Instructor at Sand Creek Golf Course in Colorado Springs was just that, near perfect.
Jones carded 12 birdies and just one bogey over 36 holes to capture the 2014 Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship on Tuesday, August 19, at Heritage Eagle Bend Golf and Country Club.
“I played great this week,” Jones noted after the event. “I have only played a few times over the past three months. I guess I needed a little time away from the game.”
