Shawnee Open

Wednesday, September 10, 2008 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) — The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort hosted its 57th annual Shawnee Open on September 8th and 9th on the resorts 27-hole championship island golf course.

The Shawnee Open is a Philadelphia Section PGA tournament. This year, two tournaments ran congruently during the Open, a 36-hole individual event and a 36-hole senior event. John Pillar of the Country Club of Woodloch Springs captured first place while Shawnee's Touring Professional, Brian Bergstol, tied for second with Dave Quinn of the Links Golf Club in the individual's tournament. Shawnee's Jim Miller tied for first place with Bill Sautter of the Philly Cricket – Militia.

The Shawnee Open began in 1912, and since then six U.S Open Champions have won the tournament: Fred McLeod, John McDermott, Walter Hagen, James Barnes, Johnny Farrell, and Lawson Little. Former PGA President Jack Connelly also won the event in 1979. Pete Oakley won the Shawnee Open a record six times (1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, 1992 and 1998), Pete won the Senior British Open in 2004, and most recently, Shawnee's Touring Professional, Brian Bergstol, qualified for and played the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, California.

The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort's Golf Professional, Joe Manley, confidently said "We are happy to continue this long time tradition with the best playing professionals in the Philadelphia Section PGA competing." Past and current PGA Tour and Senior Tour participants played in the event. Joe Manley and his staff were happy to see new faces in the crowd and encourage spectators to come see some great shot-making by the Pro's next year!
