Local PGA professional David Carr carded the low professional round, firing a 5-under 67, to win the fourth annual El Macero Country Club Pro-Am on Monday. The local charitable event was staged in conjunction with the Northern California PGA and featured 17 Northern California club professionals along with their four-person teams.

Jonathan Sparks, a 51-year-old Special Olympian, kicked off the event by singing the national anthem. Sparks is a special needs athlete from The First Tee of Greater Sacramento’s California Eagles program. He is a veteran to Special Olympics of Northern California games, competing in golf and other sports.

“We are proud and gratified to have hosted an event that assures participants have an enjoyable day while also raising significant funds for local charities,” said David Knox, PGA head golf professional at El Macero. “Our entire staff pitches in to give back to our community. It’s a long day and we all head home tired, but with an incredible sense of satisfaction about doing some good for others in need.”

Sara Scarlett, a Woodland High School graduate, delivered the keynote address to participants at the after-golf dinner. Scarlett explained her passion for golf and her appreciation for her college scholarship from the Morton Golf Foundation. She will be playing college golf in the fall at the University of Texas, Austin.

Proceeds from the event will be split among the Morton Golf Foundation, the Northern California PGA Foundation and the men’s and women’s golf teams from UC Davis.
