ken-martinKen Martin, PGA Professional Certified in Instruction and General Management and Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management Instructor, competed in the South Florida Senior Section Championship last week at the Turtle Creek Golf Club. The Top 10 finishers in the Senior Section Championship also qualified for the PGA Senior Professional National Championship (PNC), which will be held at the PGA Golf Club in November of this year.

Ken opened the competition with a 3-over par 75, which placed him tied for 26th place after the first round. Ken turned the front nine of day two in 2-over par 38. Knowing he had to play well on the closing nine, Ken recorded five birdies to shoot 31 on the back-nine, and a 3-under par 69 for the day, placing him in a tie for the final qualifying spot for the Senior PNC.

His par on the first playoff hole secured his entry into the Senior PNC and placed him in a tie for ninth overall in the 81 player field of the Senior Section Championship. Ken has qualified for and competed in the PGA Senior PNC for the last four years, finishing fourth in the nation in 2010 and second in the nation in 2011. Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management staff and students wish Ken the best as he competes against the best senior players in the country in the 2014 PGA Senior PNC in November.
