Hagan Barmasse of The Club at Indian Springs finished tied for seventh at 4-under in the National Car Rental Assistant PGA Professional Championship at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Barmasse shot rounds of 69-67-75-73. Andrew Lehman of Hillcrest Country Club in Bartlesville tied for 75th at 302, shooting 70-70-82-80.
One year after finishing runner-up, Jin Chung from the Georgia PGA Section, returned with a mission and completed it Sunday at the Wanamaker Course at the PGA Club.
Chung shot two-under 70 Sunday and finished seven shots better than the next closest competitor.
“This feels amazing,” Chung said. “After I finished second last year, I knew I was coming back. I wanted to come and win. I really like this golf course and this championship. I get a lot of support from fellow Georgia PGA professionals and the Georgia PGA. I just wanted to win this one, and I’m really happy it happened.”
Chung held off Brian Bergstol from the Philadelphia PGA section with a four-day total of 14-under 274. Bergstol entered the final round one-shot back, but shot four-over par 76. He finished second ahead of Eric Steger from the Indiana PGA Section and Jeremy Wells from the South Florida PGA Section.
The 33-year old Chung, a self-employed teaching Professional that works out of Chateau Elan Golf Club in Braselton, Georgia, bounced back from a tough ending to his third round on Saturday where he double-bogeyed No. 17 and bogeyed No. 18 opening the door for Bergstol.
