Makefield Putters PGA Staff Player Braden Shattuck Wins The Burlington Classic
The 36th Burlington Classic was a two round Sunday/Monday nail biter where consistent putting made all the difference for Makefield Putters PGA Staff Player – Braden Shattuck. After finishing an impressive first round at 5 under the next best score on the leaderboard, Shattuck had every intention of maintaining his 2021 Burlington Classic Title.
Shattuck stepped onto the course for round 2 and fired off 3 consecutive birdies. Just two groups ahead, Tony Perla of Forsgate CC heard Shattuck’s birdies and started firing off a couple of his own. The second half of round 2 was a little to close for Shattuck’s comfort as Perla started to narrow in on the lead. A hole-in-one on no. 12 brought Perla within one stroke of the lead but ultimately Shattuck’s two birdies on no. 14 & no. 16 greens helped secure his victory at 9 under par with a gross score of 131 for the tournament.
After successfully defending his Title at the Burlington Golf Classic, Shattuck paused and gave thanks to “everyone at Rolling Green G.C., the members, PGA Head Professional Scott Chisholm, and my coworkers, in addition to my friends at Titleist, Makefield Putters’ Michael Little, PGA, and of course Burlington C.C., including Mike Mack, PGA, Tournament Chair John Hanuscin, and their members. I had a great group yesterday in the pro-am; I was able to play with Burlington C.C. Superintendent Jeremy Dilks, and Nicklaus Design’s Chad Goetz who recently worked on the course. We had a lot of fun!”
