BLUFFTON, S.C. – Scott Brotebeck, PGA Professional and general manager of Flint Golf Club, is headed out to Bluffton, South Carolina to compete in the PGA Professional Championship, held this Sunday through Wednesday at Belfair’s East and West courses.
Brotebeck qualified as one of 312 PGA Professionals out of a field of 29,000 for the 52nd edition of the PGA Professional Championship. He punched his ticket to the championship during the 2018 Michigan PGA Professional Championship, where the top-nine finishers earned a spot. Brotebeck finished the tournament in fourth place after closing out his final round with a bogey-free day, joining just nine other qualifiers that qualified for the championship while also serving as a general manager at a golf facility.
This will be the second trip in a row to the championship for Brotebeck, who competed in last year’s event but did not make the cut for the weekend.
The top 20 finishers at the PGA Professional Championship will qualify for the 2019 PGA Championship, held May 16-19 at Bethpage Black in Long Island, NY, where they will compete alongside Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and more of the greatest golfers in the world.
