Delaware alum Justin Martinson wins Max Motion Physical Therapy All-American Classic

Two-time Delaware State Golf Association Player of the Year grabs 1st NGA Tour Pro Series Win

FAYETTEVILLE, NC July 17, 2014 – If Delaware alum Justin Martinson ever needed a second career, you might want to look him up under clairvoyants. Reminiscent of the legendary Babe Ruth, the former star out of Delaware who pulled the DSGA trifecta of winning the Open Championship, Amateur Championship, and Junior Championship called his own shot at the Max Motion Physical Therapy All-American Classic two nights before the event even started at the pro-am pairings party. When asked what it would take to win the week’s event Martinson quickly replied 15 under par. When pushed for his own score, the Avondale, Pa. native boldly predicted “I’ll be the 15”. While the number wasn’t exact (Martin won with a score of 10 under par), he left little doubt as he grabbed the opening round lead and, before it was all said and done, extended his 1st round lead to win the event by 6 strokes over Malone alum and Pinehurst’s own Ross Pringle, who both finished at 4 under par over the four day 72-hole event at Gates Four Golf & Country Club in Fayetteville, N.C.

Three-time NGA Tour Pro Series and former James Madison star Jay Woodson finished alone in 4th at three under par. The strong finish makes for a nice lead in as the Richmond, Va. native will be looking to win his third Virginia State Open in a row the following week. Woodson also won the NGA Tour Three Ridges Golf Classic earlier this season. Florida Southern alum Peter Creighton finished 2 under par and alone in 5th while North Florida alum J.C. Horne and Georgia Tech star Richy Werenski finished tied for 6th at one under par. Horne made news earlier this season by grabbing his first professional win at the NGA Tour Kandy Waters Memorial Classic while Werenski made news by winning his first two events as a professional, the NGA Tour Carolina Cutter Creek event and the Vermont Open.

 

Former Florida Gator and 2014 Ocala Marion Classic Champion Tyson Alexander finished at even par and alone in 8th place. The Gainesville, Fla. native will be playing in the Web.com Tour News Sentinel Open in August due to an NGA Tour exemption he earned via his Ocala win. Fayetteville’s own Trey Howell finished over par but at plus one still managed to finish inside the top 10 in ninth place adding further credibility to just how difficult General Manager Kevin Lavertu, a former competitor on the NGA Tour himself, said the William C. Byrd design would play after being extended to over 7000 yards in anticipation of the NGA Tour professionals arrival.

 

The tour would like to thank General Manager Kevin Lavertu and the entire staff, volunteers, and sponsors at Gates Four Golf & Country Club and the city of Fayetteville, N.C. for conducting one of the top events on the NGA Tour Pro Series schedule beginning with the Tuesday Pro-Am Pairings Party and running through Sunday’s Final Round conclusion. The NGA Tour resumes tournament play July 17th at Seven Lakes Country Club in Pinehurst, N.C. for the Seven Lakes NGA Golf Classic. Spectators are welcome and, as always, admission is free.
