Multiple time Tommy Thomas Pro-Am participant Bob Sowards from Dublin, Ohio won the 2018 Senior PGA Professional Championship this past weekend at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, FL. Trailing by 2 strokes, Bob took the lead by holing out of a greenside bunker for an eagle 3 on the 16th hole and finished the windswept final round with an even par 72 and a four day total of 13 under par 275. Bob became the first Southern Ohio PGA Member to capture the crown, and collected $21,500 for his efforts. He also became only the second player in PGA history to win both the PGA Professional Championship (2004) and the Senior Championship. Look for Bob to have a great showing in the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in May at Oak Hill CC in Rochester, NY. Congratulations Bob!
