2017 Western Open

Greg Ward wins the 2017 Western Open in Memphis, TN

Terry Sanner wins APA

April 22 – 23, 2017

The Professional Putters Association (PPA) arrived in Memphis, TN to rainy conditions.  Rain made the two-day weekend tournament of 8 rounds a battle of concentration and ever-changing conditions.  PPA player Greg Ward showed why he was voted #1 PPA player of all-time by constantly improving over the course of the tournament.  Greg edged out Kevin Lacey by one stroke.  Likewise, Terry Sanner improved over the course of the tournament to edge out hometown favorite Bryan Gentry in the final round to win Amateur Putters Association (APA).

Our thanks to Aubrey Smith for hosting this year’s event at his incredible 40-acre Putt Putt facility.
