Ron Frederick Wins the
1988 National Medal-Play Championship

Knoxville, TN --- July 2-3, 1988 - At this year's National Championship, PPA members from twenty-one states and Australia were represented.

Ron Frederick, a native of Toledo, Ohio, now living in Los Alimitos, California, won the Pro Division of the 1988 PPA National Championship. Frederick, five strokes behind the leaders after the first day of competition, posted a final score of 224, 64 under par and then waited while the first day leaders played their final holes of competition.

Frederick was a spectator at the 18th hole as both Donald Parker, of Stafford, Texas and John Napoli, of Columbus, Ohio, had an opportunity with an ace to tie Frederick and force an 18-hole playoff. Both players missed, however, giving Frederick his first National Championship title.

Frederick's other major titles include the 1982 and 1987 Match Play Tournaments and the 1982 PPA Putter of the Year.

Roland Block of Smyrna, Georgia, finished in a tie for second with with an eight round score of 225, 63 under par. Block began the 1988 putting season with a 2nd place finish in the 1988 Commissioner's Cup tournament, held in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Frederick took home the 1st place prize of $3,000 while 2nd and 3rd place prize money was split between Parker and Block. Parker won a sudden death playoff over Block and received the 2nd place trophy for his efforts.
