Roe Park's PGA Pro Michael McCrudden set for Stateside Trip!

Local Golfer named Regional Winner for Top Golf Award 
The Roe Park Resort’s resident PGA Professional Michael McCrudden has been named the Irish winner for the ‘Top TGI PING Customer Fitter Award’.  
PING is one of the world’s leading golf brands.  Michael is a certified custom fitter for the brand and was chosen because of his expertise in working with PING over the past 14 years.  The judges selected Michael as they felt he best represented the PING brand across all product categories, including in-store merchandising, fitting facilities and his commitment to delivering high quality custom fittings.  
Michael will now travel to the PING Headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona to compete to take the overall title.  He’ll meet with the Solheim family - the founders of the PING range, and as part of the VIP experience he’ll enjoy rounds of golf, have a custom fitting session on the range where PING carry out their research and development for their products, and go to a baseball game.   
Speaking about his achievement Michael said,
“I’m delighted to be named the regional winner for Ireland by PING and cannot wait to travel to Arizona for this once in a lifetime experience.  For a golfer, it’s a money can’t buy trip.  It’ll be truly fantastic to get a behind the scenes look at the headquarters of one of the biggest names in golf, and I look forward to trying to take the PING title!”
