Low Club Professional at Senior PGA

Local instructor Jim Estes finishes as low club professional at Senior PGA

Jim Estes came to the Senior PGA Championship last week having last competed on tour since 2000 and, as a full-time instructor at Olney Golf Park, Jim is a little out of practice. The Germantown resident had hit only a bucket of balls on the range before teeing off in the most storied of the five majors on the PGA Tour Champions.

But soon enough the competitive fire began settling in, as did Estes’s swing at Trump National golf club in Sterling. The result was a final-round 2-under-par 70 to finish as the low club professional Sunday.

Estes’s 72-hole total of 2-over 290 led four other club pros who made the cut and also was ahead of such major champions as Jeff Sluman, Ian Woosnam and Corey Pavin.



Jim was recently honored with an invitation to the Warrior Open Golf Tournament that the George W. Bush Foundation hosts on Oct 10-11 at the Las Colinas Club near Dallas, Texas. Prior to this tournament, which focuses on the participation of wounded warriors , a prelimary planning session was held that included golf with President Bush. The President shot 81, while Jim fired a 68, which included a 30 yard hole out from a green side bunker that sealed the win for Jim’s team in this freindly, but competitive match. Carolyn Creekmore was President Bush’s partner and PGA professional Andy Weissinger was Jim’s partner. The team of Estes/ Wessinger shot a best ball 66 win on 17 ~ George W. Bush
