Matt Schalk, the PGA Director of Golf at Colorado National Golf Club, closed out the Senior PGA Professional Championship with a three-over-par 75 in tough conditions for a 10-under par 278, which was good enough to claim a 2-stroke victory and the Leo Fraser Trophy.
Two of the most celebrated golf facilities in the SouthwestーTwin Warriors Golf Club and Santa Ana Golf Club, both in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico, were on full display as the hosts of the Championship.
As the Champion, Schalk will lead 35 Senior PGA Club Professionals into the 2023 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, May 25-28, at Fields Ranch East at PGA Frisco in Frisco, Texas—the first Major Championship contested at the new home of the PGA of America.
