TaylorMade-adidas Ashworth and Adams on Board for Pro Assistant Championship
If the Pro-Assistant Championship wasn’t already a premier event on the Colorado PGA schedule, there is no question it is now with the addition of TaylorMade-adidas Ashworth and Adams as a presenting sponsor. The company and its brands recently agreed to a partnership that establishes TaylorMade-adidas Ashworth Adams as a Silver Level Partner. Through the partnership, TaylorMade will add $2,500 to the overall purse while adidas Ashworth will outfit each player with their adidas 3-stripe ½ Zip layering piece.

Winning is becoming the norm for Geoff Keffer during the Colorado PGA OMEGA Dow Finsterwald Player of the Year race. Keffer began the wrap-around season in 2014 by posting victories at the Omni Interlocken Tri-Am and the Valley CC Pro-Am and started off 2015 with another victory at the first stroke play event of 2015. Keffer, an Assistant Professional at Aurora Hills Golf Course, posted a seven-under 65 to win by two strokes at Indian Peaks Golf Course in Lafayette, CO. Keffer posted seven birdies and an eagle in his first competitive round of the year.
