McClellan records rare double

Butler’s Rob McClellan, winner of the West Penn Open at Nevillewood last month, added the Tri-State PGA’s Section Championship title to his collection on August 15-16. He recorded 65-70–135 at Allegheny to beat John Aber from the host site by three strokes.

Winning the West Penn Open and the Tri-State Section championships in the same year is a rare feat. Five time West Penn Open winner Roy Vucinich notched them both in 1977, while1954 US Open champion Ed Furgol achieved this in 1965.
