Jon Stanley Wins PING SWSPGA Championship

Jon Stanley of the John Jacobs Golf School shot a 13-under par 203 to win the 2011 PING Southwest Section PGA Championship at the par 72 Blackstone Country Club.

The three-day, 54-hole, stroke play championship was contested from August 29 to August 31 at the Jim Engh-designed course in Peoria, Ariz.

During final-round play, Stanley was nearly flawless, shooting an 8-under par 64. However, Joe Penaflor of The Golf Club Scottsdale was even better, firing a 10-under 62 to share runner-up honors at 12-under with Paul Tritter of Grayhawk Golf Club.

Stanley earned $7,000, while Penaflor and Trittler won $3,500.

Doug Hodge of Grayhawk and Ralph West of Reid/West Golf Academy tied for fourth at 11-under 205. Blaine Hobbs, Greg Avant and Jeff Yurkiewicz tied for 6th at 207, four strokes behind Stanley.
