Age is just a number to Ron Vlosich, PGA Life Member. At 62, Ron became the oldest person on record to claim the Colorado PGA Professional Championship on Wednesday, September 11. In doing so, he claimed the title for the fourth time and the first time since winning three in-a-row from 1991 through 1993.
“It means a lot,” noted Vlosich following the championship. “I don’t win that often anymore so it’s a real treat to be able to do it again.”
Mike Northern started the year on the bench dealing with a bulky back. The PGA Life Member from Colorado Springs, Colo. could barely finish an eighteen-hole round. As the season went on, Northern battled back to get on the course and on Tuesday, battled back against the field to claim the 2019 Colorado Senior PGA Professional Championship.
“I had a muscle back there that would spasm during my golf swing,” noted Northern. “The more I played, the longer into the round I got, the more it would spasm. My chiropractor and my massage therapist talked and worked together a bit and they were able to get it to release.”
Wikipedia defines resiliency as the ability to not just bounce back but bounce forward. Ben Lanting, PGA, Associate from Bear Creek Golf Club, embodied resiliency on Tuesday to claim his second straight title at the National Car Rental Colorado Assistant Professional Championship.
Lanting opened with a one-under-par 71, leaving him tied for fifth place after the first round. Like last year, he would have to battle through two previous champions in Caine Fitzgerald and Geoff Keffer if he was going to claim a second title. Things started off on the wrong foot this year though as Lanting doubled the first hole during the final round.
The Colorado PGA Women’s Championship title had eluded Sherry Andonian for the first three years of the tournament’s existence. During that time, she claimed two West Chapter Championship titles but couldn’t break through in the only women’s championship contested by the Colorado PGA. That all changed on Thursday as Andonian outlasted a late charge from two-time champion Alexandra Braga to claim victory.
“It feels great,” Andonian noted after the event. “I wanted it a little too badly, so I put a lot of pressure on myself.”
