Honey Brook resident Andrew Turner’s familiarity with the course propelled him in winning the coveted $100,000 first prize at the Haverford Trust Philadelphia PGA Classic held at Plymouth Meeting’s Sunnybrook Golf Club, where he is an assistant pro, writes Joe Juliano for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

“I think the biggest check I ever won before this was five or six thousand bucks,” said Turner. “So this is a little jump.”

Turner staved off the competition with a four-under-par score of 68. He then spent rest of the day monitoring the leaderboard, keeping a close eye on the results as the later players began their rounds.

“Waiting this year was better than last year,” he said. “Last year, I shot a 69. I waited about 15 minutes and a 67 was posted, and I went home.”
