CHESTERFIELD, Va. — Beaver Creek Country Club pro Dirk Schultz refreshed his winning edge on Monday.
Schultz captured the title in the Middle Atlantic PGA’s Head Pro Championship with a 3-under-par 69 at Lake Chesdin Golf Club thanks to a late charge on the back nine.
Schultz went 36-33 on his card, starting on No. 18 in the shotgun format. He was 2 over after the fifth hole, and after two birdies and another bogey he found himself at 1 over through No. 12 before catching fire.
He sandwiched birdies on 13 and 15 around an eagle on 14, a long par 5.
Schultz hit an 8-iron from 160 feet within 4 feet of the pin on 13, went driver and 3-metal before making a 25-to-30-foot eagle putt on 14, then hit a 5-foot putt on 15 after a pinpoint 7-iron from 167 yards.
After closing with pars on the last two holes, Schultz had to wait for the remainder of the field to come in. Wwhen the final tallies were posted, he had a one-stroke win over Rick Shuller and Bryan Jackson.
“The win puts me in a good frame of mind that I can still do it,” said Schultz, who has had a frustrating summer in terms of a lack of wins on the MAPGA circuit.
Schultz garnered 200 player-of-the-year points heading into next Monday’s Tournament of Champions at Beaver Creek.
The win was his first since late March, when he won the MAPGA’s Pro-Pro Championship. He became a repeat winner in the Pro Championship, having won in 2008 at Blue Ridge Shadows.
