STOW’S MCHUGH WINS NOPGA ASSISTANTS TITLE; ADVANCES TO NATIONAL EVENT IN NOVEMBER

Fox Den Assistant Golf Professional Tyler McHugh shot rounds of 66-69 on Tuesday at Club Walden to win the NOPGA National Car Rental Assistants Championship conducted by the Northern Ohio Section of the Professional Golfers Association of America.

McHugh’s 135 total was 9-under and good enough for a two-shot victory over Elyria Country Club’s Jake Scott (66-71) and Brandywine Country Club’s Michael Balcar (72-65).

Along with the $1,400 winner’s check, McHugh also qualifies to play in the 44th Annual PGA National Assistants Championship to be held Nov. 12-15 at the PGA Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Scott and Balcar split second-place money of $925.00 and Scott also will advance to the national tournament.

Alternate spots went to Bowling Green State University Head Golf Coach John Powers (72-69-141), Westfield Country Club’s Daren de Lelys (74-70-144) and Collin Slattery, Assistant Golf Professional at The Country Club (71-74-145).

McHugh, who prepped at Walsh Jesuit and Kent State, was the lone player in the 40-man field to break 70 in both rounds. In his 36 holes he had one eagle, nine birdies, 25 pars, no bogeys and one double bogey. He played bogey-free in his first round but made his lone double-bogey on Walden’s 460-yard 10th hole, his opening hole in the second round, when he pumped his tee shot out of bounds. He went on to play his final 17 holes in 5-under.
