The 2014 Ping Elite Players Junior Golf Tour held their summer season Championship at Bulle Rock Golf Course in Havre de Grace, Maryland on Saturday, August 2nd. Reknowned as the best Public Golf Course in the state and former home of the Women's LPGA Championship, Bulle Rock provided plenty of thrills and surprises.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day was in the Boy's ages 16-19 division. Norbeck Junior, Max Finkel gained a sudden death victory over tour veteran Jared Sadegh. Both had fired tournament low 75's, Sadegh with 3 birds on his card and Finkel with one on number eight, to force winner take all. Max Finkel, new to competitive golf and having taken up the sport seriously, less than two years ago, sank a sliding 4 foot putt on the second playoff hole to take the day's honors.
Andrew Bostrom first met Carl in 2005 after an up and down college golf career at the University of the Pacific. Carl offered Andrew an objective system for a more repeatable golf swing. Despite rapid improvement, Andrew experiencing limited success playing golf for a living for three years. However, he went on to become a Class "A “ PGA Professional and is the Head Golf Professional at Green Brook Country Club, in North Caldwell, New Jersey. Andrew had previously been 1st Assistant Golf Professional and Lead Instructor at the TOP 100 ranked Quaker Ridge GC in Scardale, NY. (See Certified Instructor page for contact information). Carl continues to work with Andrew on his swing as well as his teaching. The reigning two-time MET PGA Assistant Professional of the Year competes regularly, and this year carded the round of his life at the Tommy Thomas Pro-Am at Barona Creek Golf Club in Lakeside, CA. After a slow start of 1-under par for the first four holes, Andrew played the last fourteen holes in 11-under par. His putt for 59 from 10 feet on the last hole lipped out, but he settled for a 12-under par 60 with 8 birdies and 2 eagles.

The only thoughts I have before a shot are choosing the correct club and setting up to the ball. I don't have to worry about anything else."
