NAPLES (April 12, 2017) – Adam DeArmond and Larry Den used local knowledge to help them win the South Florida PGA Club Car Pro-Official Presented by Earth Networks at Fiddlesticks Country Club. DeArmond, PGA Assistant Professional at Fiddlesticks, and Den, a board member at the club, combined for a 10-under net 62 on the Long Mean course and finished tied with Reed Kleintop and Tim Young of Highland Woods Golf & Country Club. DeArmond and Den won in a scorecard match based on their lower back nine (7-under 29 to 3-under 33). “It was a day of adversity,” DeArmond said. “We started out sluggishly, making a team bogey on our second hole. The key moment came when Larry chipped in for net eagle on the 15th hole. “We started making birdies left and right. We were 9-under on our last 11 holes. It was a good, fun day.” Kleintop, PGA Head Golf Professional at Highland Woods in Bonita Springs, and Young combined to make eight birdies and an eagle in a nine-hole stretch. But they made just one birdie on their last nine holes.

This is when I came to the realization that I wanted to do something that I could enjoy for the rest of my life. While looking through all of the career opportunities at NC State, I came upon the PGA Golf Management program and knew right then that golf was my future and I could build my career around the game I love. My favorite playing memory: My favorite golf memory is from a few years back while home for summer from NC State. I had just been accepted into the PGM program and was working at a local club back home. I was able to get my two (older) brothers and my grandfather together for a round of golf at [...]
