As the champion, Hayashi earns a spot in the 2017 SONY OPEN IN HAWAII at Waialae Country Club, January 12-15 in Honolulu. He will also represent the Aloha Section at the 50th PGA Professional Championship, June 25-28, 2017, at Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Oregon.

Hayashi’s winning total of (138) finishing at 6-under par was a two-stroke finish ahead of Kevin Carll (Waialae Country Club) and Eddie Lee (Wailea Golf Academy), who both finished at (140). Carll will earn the second Section spot to join Hayashi at the 50th PGA Professional Championship at Sunriver Resort in 2017. Lee was not eligible to advance to the National event, but will share the second place winnings with Carll.

The PGA Professional Championship will mark its fourth visit to Sunriver Resort and first since 2013. The Championship brings together a field of 312 contestants representing the PGA of America’s 41 nationwide Sections.

In 2017, the Championship field will compete at Sunriver Resort, home to two of the country’s premier public/resort courses. The Championship will be contested on the Crosswater Club and Meadows Golf Course.

Sunriver’s 605-acre resort is positioned between the Big Deschutes and Little Deschutes Rivers. Inspired by the Scottish highlands, Crosswater Club opened for play in 1995 as a heathland-style course offers a perfect blend of strategy and aesthetics. The course features a wide range of fairway lengths and the constant interplay of wetlands, ponds, and rivers.

Designed by Bob Cupp, the par-72 Crosswater Golf Club played to 7,530 yards in the 2013 Championship, which made it the second longest layout in event history. The Meadows Golf Course, a collaborative effort between Fred Federspiel and John Fought, also is a par-71 layout that was played at 6,969 yards in the Championship. The Meadows winds its way along the great meadow and through groves of Ponderosa Pines.

The PGA Professional Championship, carrying a $550,000 total purse this year, is broadcast (all four rounds) by Golf Channel. Following 36 holes of play, the field will be trimmed to the low 90 scorers and ties, and following 54 holes of play, the field will be trimmed to the low 70 scorers and ties.

The low 20 scorers in 2017 will earn berths into the 99th PGA Championship, Aug. 10-13, 2017, at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In addition to the Walter Hagen Cup, the PGA Professional Championship winner also receives an exemption into the next 10 PGA Professional Championships and exemptions into six PGA TOUR events over a 12-month period.

Established in 1968, the PGA Professional Championship roster of Champions includes the following premier TOUR professionals: Sam Snead, Bob Rosburg, Don Massengale, Ed Dougherty, Larry Gilbert, and Bruce Fleisher.

The PGA Professional Championship is presented by Club Car, Mercedes-Benz USA and OMEGA. Supporting sponsors are Titleist/FootJoy, Nike Golf, TaylorMade Golf Companies, and the PGA TOUR. Golf Channel is the official media partner. The 41 Section Championships and the National Championship offer a combined purse of $1.5 million.

The national Championship, presented by Mercedes-Benz USA, returns to PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Hayashi turned in a winning total of two over par (148) to capture the Aloha Section Senior PGA Professional Championship supported by Mercedes-Benz USA.  Lance Taketa from Hilo Municipal Golf Course (157) and Jay Taise from Hapuna Golf Course (158) round out the three qualifiers.

The Senior PGA Professional Championship brings together a field of 264 contestants representing the PGA of America’s 41 nationwide Sections, and features a total purse of $285,000. The first two rounds will be conducted on the Ryder and Wanamaker Courses. The Wanamaker Course will host the Championship’s final 36 holes. Mercedes-Benz USA is returning as a presenting sponsor.

The Wanamaker Course, designed by Tom Fazio, is named in honor of Rodman Wanamaker, who in 1916, inspired the birth of the PGA of America. A classic Florida layout, the Wanamaker Course plays to a par-72 and will be set at 6,725 yards. It is set against a backdrop of wetlands, palm trees and palmettos, and is considered one of Florida’s most beautiful courses.

The Ryder Course is named in honor of Samuel Ryder, the namesake and founder of the Ryder Cup, the pre-eminent event in golf. The par-72, 6,733-yard layout with rolling hills, majestic pine trees and challenging water hazards has a distinctive Carolina-feel.

Begun in 1989, the Senior PGA Professional Championship is modeled after the PGA Professional Championship, with a field of 50-and-older senior PGA Professionals who advanced through 41 Section Championships conducted from July through September this year.

The top 35 finishers in the national Championship earn a berth in the 78th Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, which will be conducted in May 2017, at Trump National Golf Club – Washington, D.C., in Potomac Falls, Virginia.

The top five finishers earn an exemption into the final stage of the 2017 PGA Tour Champions National Finals. Since its debut, many participants in the Senior PGA Professional Championship have used their success in the event as a springboard to a PGA Tour Champions career..
