Golf Pros at The Club at New Seabury Team up for NE PGA Acushnet Pro-Assistant Championship
The New Seabury duo shot 64 (-7) late in the day at Bay Club of Mattapoisett in the 18-Hole, Four-Ball Stroke Play event. Clay and Scopone carded six birdies on their front nine before adding two more, while two teams were in the clubhouse at -6.
“We really got it going holes two through eight. We seemed to ham-and-egg it, a lot of ham, a little bit of egg, he had six birdies,” Clay said after the round. “We were just hitting it close,” Scopone added. “Jim hit one to about three feet on the first hole and then we just kept the momentum going.”
Added Chris Card, President & Executive Director at The Club at New Seabury, “What a great way to start off the season for our staff. I knew we had high caliber team of golf professionals here at New Seabury but to have Jim and Dominic team up to win the New England PGA Acushnet Pro-Assistant Championship is a nice kick off to the golf season. It confirms how lucky we and our members are to have such fine guys leading our golf program.”
