With Hurricane Idalia bearing down, Troy Spencer, PGA Director of Golf at Marietta Country Club took home the title at the 64th Georgia PGA Championship charged by EnviroSpark and presented by E-Z-GO, PGA Tour, and SCNS Foods at Sea Island Golf Club’s Plantation Course.
Normally a 54-hole Championship, but cut down to an 18-hole Championship due to inclement weather and unplayable course conditions, Spencer won by two strokes at 8-under par, 64, two shots ahead of Francisco Bide, Assistant PGA Professional at Capital City Club. It was decided Monday afternoon that the Championship was only going to be 36-holes, until lingering thunderstorms and course conditions on Tuesday was an issue. The tournament was called and evacuated to get players, Sea Island Staff, and Georgia PGA Staff safely off the island before Hurricane Idalia.
We will be working with Spencer to recognize and celebrate him in the near future in front of our membership
