Filbert Back For More
Winning the South Florida PGA Professional Championship last year was not enough for local Naples, PGA Professional, Andrew Filbert. Hoping to accomplish the same this year, Assistant Professional from Bonita National Golf Club went low with a score of sixty-five during the first round of the 2018 SFPGA Professional Championship. He went three-under on the front nine on the North Course of The Club at Mediterra. Then he ended his round with two birdies and an eagle on the par-five, 17th hole to bring it home.
Another Naples local tops the leader board. Daniel Heaslip, PGA Director of Golf at Windstar Naples Bay completed his six-under round with four birdies on his final holes. Heaslip was recently the winner of the 2018 Senior SFPGA Championship and will return tomorrow with over 140 PGA Professionals for round two. Pairings for round two can be found here. The top twelve competitors will advance to the 2019 PGA Professional Championship at Belfair in Beaufort, South Carolina. The complete results from today’s event can be found here.
