PGA Junior Golf Association and Tour thriving in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts

Russ Held Sports – SOUTH GLASTONBURY, Conn. (May 22, 2015)


Play golf. Enjoy golf. Simple objectives, and a clear mission of the Connecticut Section PGA's Junior Golf Association and its Junior Golf Tour.


"It's really about enjoyment of the game,'' Section executive director Tom Hantke said. "We've had our junior golf tour now close to 20 years. We see golfers, former junior tour golfers now 30-plus years old, and they're playing golf.


"That's really the objective. If they're successful in golf, all the better. But we just want them playing golf.''


The Junior Golf Association and Tour are now grown up as they turn 18, and are financially underwritten by the Section's Golf Foundation. Membership is healthy at an annual average of 500.


"The last four or five years, we've made great strides,'' Hantke said. "We've diversified the type of events we run, with our tournaments, our Little Linksters program, the pro-junior invitational . . .

Kyle Bilodeau unseats Adam Rainaud, wins Connecticut Section Spring PGA Stroke Play title

Russ Held Sports - SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (May 15, 2015)


Two out of three aint bad. Just ask Kyle Bilodeau of West Hartford, Conn.


The assistant golf professional at Ellington Ridge Country Club earned his second trip in three years to the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship. That exemption came courtesy of his win Friday at the Connecticut Section's Spring PGA Stroke Play Championship.


Bilodeau fashioned a pair of 1-under-par 71s to post a two-stroke victory over a 33-player field at Ledges Golf Course. He claimed a winner's share of $1,500.


"I'm excited, it's going to be a busy time for me at the end of June,'' Bilodeau said.  "If I make the cut, that will be absolutely fantastic. If I miss the cut, I'm going to Philadelphia for the National Club Pro Championship.''


Adam Rainaud posted a pair of 72s to tie for second place with Brent Paladino (73-144) of the Connecticut State Golf Association.
