Following spectacular performances by GBNYC member Stewart Hagestad both in the Met Area and on the national stage this season, the Metropolitan Golf Association (MGA) announced him as the recipient of the 2016 MGA Jerry Courville Sr. Player of the Year Award. Hagestad’s win in the Met Amateur Championship and remarkable rally to claim the U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship certainly highlighted his year, but consistent high finishes in area events also led to his capturing the coveted title. The award was presented at the MGA’s 119th Annual Meeting and Dinner on Wednesday, December 7 at Westchester Country Club.
