Vince Batten Surges to Victory in Richmond, VA With Final-Round 22

10 April 2011 - Richmond, VA - The Virginia PPA Tour held the final of three weekend 54-hole tournaments on historic course # 3 at the Richmond, VA Putt-Putt Fun Center. Overnight showers dampened the course's carpets, leading to favorable playing conditions on the sunny, pleasant spring morning.

Greg Newport Defeats Rick Baird and Ed Grajewski in Playoff For Win in Richmond, VA

9 April 2011 - Richmond, VA - Course manager and PPA Hall of Fame member Gary Hinshaw welcomed the Virginia PPA Tour to the second of three weekend 54-hole tournaments on course # 3 at the immaculately-maintained Richmond, VA Putt-Putt Fun Center. As in the day's earlier event, players were treated to relatively ideal playing conditions. With 2007 PPA National Champion Rick Baird having shot a perfect 18 and amateur Billy Caudle having established a new all-time APA division 54-hole scoring record of 66 in the day's previous tournament, expectations abounded for low afternoon scoring. However, the field failed to take advantage of the opportunity, as the top twelve top finishers in the professional division posted tightly-bunched, pedestrian 54-hole scores between 74 and 78.

9 April 2011 - Richmond, VA - On an overcast, cool, and calm early spring morning, the Virginia PPA Tour gathered on course # 3 at the beautiful Richmond, VA Putt-Putt Fun Center to contest what most of the 20 professional and 16 amateur tournament contestants initially would have assumed to have been just another routine 54-hole tour event. Just several hours later, however, the field had witnessed perhaps one of the most historic days in PPA history.

3 April 2011 - Lynchburg, VA - The Virginia PPA Tour held the third of three weekend 54-hole tournaments on the uniquely-designed course # 1 layout at PPA Commissioner Joe Aboid's picturesque Lynchburg, VA Putt-Putt Fun Center. The challenging, unrelenting high winds encountered by players in the previous day's two events mercifully gave way to a relatively calm, sunny but cool spring morning. As a result, general field scoring improved significantly. Several players took full advantage of the gift from nature.

2 April 2011 - Lynchburg, VA - The Virginia PPA Tour gathered to contest the second of three weekend 54-hole tournaments on the tedious course # 1 layout at the beautiful Lynchburg, VA Putt-Putt Fun Center. Players were challenged by strong, swirling, unpredictable afternoon winds which were so violent at times that balls at rest on the carpets and teemats were blown out of position. As in the day's earlier event, the extreme playing conditions resulted in a wide range of field scoring.
