Korn Ferry Tour player Ryan McCormick took home $7,000 upon completion of the first annual Orange County Fall Classic this past Saturday at Osiris Country Club.
McCormick won in a playoff after a 3-under 69 for the day. Fellow Korn Ferry Tour member Michael Miller and McCormick were escorted to their playoff hole in a helicopter overlooking the scenic fall views of the Hudson Valley.
“I was pretty nervous for the helicopter,” said McCormick after the win. “It was awesome but definitely rattled me a little bit. I have never been in a helicopter before, but it worked out anyway.”
John Schob, a collegiate golfer at Manhattan College, took the title as the lowest amateur of the day carding a 72. He defeated Andre Manginelli in a playoff for the title.
“My mom caddied for me today, so having her out here with me was the highlight for sure,” Schob said.
Brian Crowell, PGA Director of Golf at Osiris Country Club, put the event together to not only showcase the club and Hudson Valley, but for a great cause as well.
“PGA Hope is ‘Help Our Patriots Everywhere’ and it’s really dedicated to helping those men and women who have served in our military and are back and looking for something to do to ease some of the pains and the distractions has been very, very helpful,” said Crowell.
Crowell could not have asked for a better tournament and can’t wait to host this event in years to come. Mark your calendars as this event is set to take off October 16, 2021.
