Jay Johnson won his third NEBA and second in 2022 at the Bowl Winkle's Pro Shop Open. Jay grabbed a spot in match play by making the Sunday morning squad cut with 1093.

The next tournament is the Buddies Pro Shop Open April 9-10 at Nutmeg Bowl in Fairfield, CT. It is the second event in the women's series.  It is also the first event of the $10,000 Paul Forry Memorial Series.  Reserve your spot now to be part of this big weekend!
