At 22-years-old Puzzo’s debut as a PGA Professional in the last tee time of the day at the 88th Connecticut PGA Championship. He was the last shot to leave hole one tee box. Little did he know his driver would carry 320 yards to then roll into the hole.

The @ConnecticutPGA Championship debut Tuesday by @PGA Associate Pro Kyle Puzzo was legendary. Last off the tee, he aced the 314-yd. No. 1 hole at Keney Park GC in Hartford. Hey, Orchards GC in S. Hadley, Mass., give him a bonus. It's all downhill from here, kid.

What a great week back in Connecticut. Thanks to the @ConnecticutPGA, Keney Park and all of the amazing volunteers! And congrats to the the 2019 Boys #JuniorPGA Champion Jack Heath!

Twin brothers David and Maxwell Ford of Peachtree Corners, Georgia are 1 of 3 (yes 3!) sets of brothers in the field this week.

We start playing for real starting tomorrow morning! #JuniorPGA

We could not be more proud to see the way our former junior players keep succeeding in their college and athletic careers!

Sarah shared with us a little bit of her experience as a college golfer : “I am a sophomore on the womens golf team at William & Mary. Balancing my academics and golf can be difficult at times but I love my team, love my school and every experience has been so valuable. My advice to prospective collegiate athletes is to look for a college/university with an environment where you can see yourself being the happiest.” Sarah.

Our Section Professionals continue to put their efforts in growing the game of golf.

Host professional Thomas Halsted from Sharon Country Club and Mark Moriarty played from sun up to sun down to support The First Tee of Connecticut and the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation (50/50 split). Pledges are made by members of the Sharon Country Club and friends of The First Tee of Connecticut.

Pledges can be made per hole and for every birdie and eagle that we make or just as a flat donation. Since the marathon started in 2014 it has raised nearly $30,000.

Lyman Orchards Golf Club hosted the "Showdown at Apple" on August 30th, 2019

All six PGA and LPGA members and associates that call Lyman Orchards their home participated in this Drive For The Game event. It was a three team match where John partnered with Jason Beffert, Jon Wilson partner with Dan Hannibal and Marissa Kulig Crow partnered with Andra Frappier. The format of The Showdown was a nine hole match where the first three holes were a best ball format, middle three holes were an alternate shot and the final three holes were a scramble. Lowest score wins.

the hosting group asked for donations in the amount of $20 and called them "shares". If a participant owned a share of the winning team each team member would share in the winnings.

Way to go Team Lyman Orchards Golf Club! Love the music, uniforms and overall atmosphere of the event! Too bad I placed my share on the #WrongTeam! Congratulations on a job well done and for supporting the Golf Foundation.

It was so much fun and we can’t wait to write a check to the foundation just as soon as the tallies are completed. Can’t wait for next year!

You all are the best!

So cool!
