Haggin Oaks would like to congratulate our very own Director of Player Development, Tom Morton, for his recent win at the NCPGA Match Play Championship
Tom Morton’s journey towards the championship began on Monday, May 1, 2017, when he won both of his first matches at Yolo Fliers Club in Woodland. From there, he drove to Santa Cruz that evening. On Tuesday, Tom won both of his matches at Pasatiempo and then drove to Pebble Beach. The excitement continued Wednesday morning when he won his match at Cypress Point. Everyone was thrilled to learn that he also won his final match at Pebble Beach, making him the NCPGA Match Play Champion.
This win will qualify Tom to play in an upcoming PGA Tour event, the Barracuda Championship (formerly the Reno-Tahoe Open). The Barracuda Championship will be held at the Montreux Golf and Country Club on August 3-6, 2017. Click HERE for ticket information.
According to Tom, “This is beyond my imagination to have kept winning matches against so many great players in our section. With the win, to have received an exemption into a PGA Tour event is a dream I have always had. I am getting up there in age and to be honest, this is a dream I thought had passed me by.”
All of us at Morton Golf are incredibly proud of Tom and his amazing win. Well done, Tom!
