This comes to us from Chris Cagnolatti who spent 5 days, with Jim Samsing last September. Chris has competed on the Golf Channel’s Am Tour for the past several years, but until now, he had not recorded a win. That has now all changed! With a full field on a very difficult course and in trying, tournament conditions, Chris came home, the Champion. In his words:
“This past weekend I flew out to Rio Grande, Puerto Rico to play the Trump National – Championship and International courses in a 2-day major. The course and conditions absolutely beautiful but were like nothing I’ve seen before. First day I shot an 80, second day was an 82 with 2 birdies on the back nine. I tied for first with a local Puerto Rican who just came off a round of 78 and beat him by 2 shots on the first playoff hole to win the tournament.
I just gave Jim a call to let him know I won my first tournament. The lessons I got in September were instrumental in helping me win. Especially Clear Key and the drills that Jim gave me. Jim helped my game so much I just wanted to express my sincerest appreciation.”
Congratulations, Chris! We think that this will be the first of many crystal trophies!
