Two Utah club professionals will be in the 156-player field at the PGA Championship this week at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky.
Steve Schneiter, a teaching professional at Pebble Brook Golf Course in Sandy, will be making his 11th appearance at the PGA after finishing 11th at the Club Pro Championship in June. The top 20 finishers in the tournament qualified to play at Valhalla.
Also playing will be Valley View pro Dustin Volk, who finished in a tie for fifth at the Club Pro Championship. The 40-year-old Volk played collegiately at Weber State and has won several local tournaments, including the Salt Lake City Amateur and the Salt Lake City Open.
Schneiter’s best finish at the PGA was in 2005 at Baltusrol, when he came in 40th and was the low club professional. The 50-year-old Schneiter is a former State Amateur champion who played at BYU and has won numerous events in Utah.
Volk tees off at 10:40 a.m. MDT with Scott Brown and Charley Hoffman off No. 10 tee, while Schneiter has a 12:20 p.m. tee time with Will MacKenzie and Chesson Hadley, also off No. 10.
Also playing in the PGA is Farmington’s Daniel Summerhays, who will tee off at 12:40 p.m. with Jim McGovern and Geoff Ogilvy.
