Results from the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame Classic 100 and the Drive, Pitch, & Putt Championship

aces were recorded at the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame Classic 100 April 7 at Hyland Hills Golf Course in Westminster. And they came from players in the same cart. On first hole of the 100-hole shotgun event, CGHOF President Scott Radcliffe one-hopped one into the cup on the 1st hole of the South Par-3. On the very last hole—the 100th—his cartmate, board member Mark Valente, jarred one on the ninth hole. The event raised $95,000 for the History of Golf in Colorado Foundation, the 501(c)(3) that supports the Colorado Golf Hall of Fame.

6th place was the highest finish by a Colorado competitor in April’s Drive, Pitch, & Putt Championship at Augusta National Golf Club. Luke Trujillo and Arielle Keating, both of Colorado Springs, each finished 6th in the 14-15 age division. Caitlyn Chin of Denver finished 10th among girls ages 7-9.  The three had qualified by winning their divisions at the West Regional, an accomplishment in itself. A joint initiative between the Masters Tournament, USGA and The PGA of America, DC&P is a free nationwide junior golf development competition. Registration for 2017’s championship has begun.
