HELLERTOWN, Pa., August 20, 2019 – Moving Foreward instructors earned top honors at the National Amputee Golf Open Championship, held August 5-9, 2019, at the Peek’n Peak Resort, in Clymer, New York. In a rain-shortened tournament, Kenny Bontz was crowned the men’s Open champion, carding rounds of 71 and 74 to finish four shots ahead of fellow Moving Foreward instructor Adam Benza (77-72). Chad Pfeifer, who played with Kenny and Adam as a group, placed fourth overall and second in the Above-Knee division. Kellie Valentine finished as runner-up in the women’s tournament.
“I’m really proud of my Moving Foreward colleagues,” says co-founder Adam Benza. “As not only ambassadors for the sport, but also instructors, it’s important that we keep our skills up to date. And there’s no tougher skills test than going up against the best amputee golfers in the country.”
Moving Foreward will look to share some of those skills and experience when they host a clinic for amputee golfers on Friday, September 13, 2019, at Mountain Vista Golf Course, in Fort Collins, Colorado. Golfers of any playing level are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Benza will lead the clinic, which will feature morning (10 am – 12 pm) and afternoon (1 pm – 3 pm) sessions. For more information or to register for the clinic, contact Kim Brekke via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (970) 686-2266.
