Rainaud wins CT PGA Professional Championship

Adam Rainaud birdied the first sudden-death playoff hole to defeat Billy Downes and win the Connecticut PGA Professional Championship Tuesday at The Ranch Golf Club in Southwick, Massachusetts.

Rainaud, an assistant pro at the Black Hall Club in Old Lyme, and Downes (Longmeadow, Massachusetts) both shot 36-hole totals of 4-under-par 140 in regulation. Both have qualified for the 49th PGA Professional Championship, June 26-29, 2016, at Turning Stone Resort in Verona, New York.

Joining them will be Jim Hanlon from The Farms CC in Wallingford, who finished second at 3-under 141, Fran Marrello from Plymouth (1-over 145) and Brent Paladino from Kensington (1-over 145).

Rainaud finished in the top 20 in the national event this year to qualify for the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. The low 20 players in next year’s event qualify for the PGA July 28-31 at Baltusrol GC in Springfield, New Jersey.
