Winning Golf TV capped off another thrilling season with the 2015 “Grand Championship” held at the beautiful Applecross C.C. Our “Grand Championship” featured the 2015 “weekly champions” competing for an amazing “grand prize”! The competition was held on the challenging and mint conditioned 18th green. The champions were tested with 6 rounds of “short game” shots including chips, putts, pitches as well as bunker and lob shots!
The championship format was conducted with a unique point scoring system. After five rounds the 6 players with the most points moved on to the “Survivor round”. This year’s 6 finalists were Bob Childs, Kevin Fortier, Jason Cianfrani, Andrew Tuffner, Adam Loew and Bernie Pekala.
"The Final 6"
Our last round the exciting Survivor Round featured a challenging 20 yard pitch shot from the heavy rough! With the final 2 slots on the line, Adam Loew (1 ft. 9 inches) and Andrew Tuffner (1 ft. 6 inches) moved on to battle for the amazing “grand prize”.
The "2" Finalists - Adam Loew & Andrew Tuffner
Our final shot in the 2015 Winning Golf “Grand Championship” was a 60 yard pitch shot to a back pin. Adam Loew had the honors and hit a beauty about 18 feet below the pin. Now it was Andrew Tuffner’s turn to try and perform some magic on the 18th green. And boy did he deliver; Andrew hit a miracle wedge shot and holed out from 60 yards! Now that’s “Winning Golf”!
Andrew’s amazing “grand prize” included a gorgeous Championship Trophy, a full golf membership at Applecross C.C. and a round of golf at the prestigious Merion Golf Club. Now that’s a “grand prize”! Congratulations to our 2015 “Grand Champion”, Andrew Tuffner!
