SCOTT KELLY is first on our ‘watch list’ of 2017. Last season, despite never getting a win, Kelly placed #1 on our money list & landed Top-5 at 4 different events, 3 of those being 2nd place finishes. Out of those 2nd place finishes, 2 of them were the result of Kelly coming up short in a playoff. Scott finally found his victory in our ’16-’17 Winter Series at the Lake Windcrest Fall Classic. Overall, Scott Kelly was 1st in our Winter Series points system and he is in the field for our first event of 2017.
JORDAN RUSSELL made this list with ease because of the success he has found on APT in the past year. In 2016 Russell had his first Pro Win at our Merrill Lynch Open (scores). He had 4 Top-10 finishes and landed #2 on Points List & #3 on Money List. In this past Winter Series, Russell started off strong placing 2nd in the first FOUR events, even though he never did land a win during this season, he placed #2 on Points List & #3 on Money List once again. Jordan is also signed up for our first event of 2017.
MARK WALKER is a well known name here at APT. Walker has been playing our tour for many years and has continued to find eminence. Because he has found so much success, here is a list of his accomplishments from 2016:
- one 1st Place finish / 5 Top-5 finishes / only 1 missed cut / won Player of the Year Award / 2nd on our Money List
Mark has placed Top-5 on our Player of the Year points system a total of 7 seasons… ( #1 four times, #2 twice & one 5th place). He is signed up for a first event and we are excited to see him play.
