2015 Championship Highlights

In front of a gallery looking on from above at Red Tail Golf Club, Nick McLaughlin (Far Corner GC) tapped in his par putt on the 18th green, congratulated his playing partners and then enjoyed a special hug with his father Bill. He had just won the 2015 Massachusetts Amateur Public Links Championship. He also became the first golfer in Bay State history to win that title as well as the Massachusetts Amateur and New England Amateur Championships... all in the same calendar year. Read More
