New Jersey's Alice Chen of Princeon and Taylor Totland of Tinton Falls are the 2017 USGA Women's Amateur. Four-Ball champions!

The best friends and teammates at Furman University defeated University of Georgia teammates Sammi Lee of Winter Park, Fla., and Mary Ellen Shuman of St. Simon's Island, Ga.., 4 and 3, in the championship match on Wednesday, May 31.

Chen and Totland had little trouble in the final, winning five holes with birdies and adding another on the par-5 No. 15 to close out the match with a halve. It is the second national championship for Chen. Three years ago, she led New Jersey, sponsored by the NJSGA, to the U.S. State Team Championship.

Totland and Chen, the No. 1 seeds, won the first hole with par and the second with a birdie. They still led, 1 up, through six holes. They won the par-four No. 10 qith a birdie and the par-four No. 14 with a birdie to go 3-up. They halved the par-4 No. 16 wit a birdie to close out the match.

It is with great sadness that we inform our followers that William ( Bill) Probst, founder of Golfer's Tee Times, passed away in early May at the age of 88. Bill worked tirelessly with many golf courses in New Jersey to bring an unbiased newspaper to golfers in NJ. 

William Hannum Probst, 88, lived in Egg Harbor Township for much of his life until he retired to New Smyrna Beach since late 2007. He was born in Pleasantville, NJ. He served our nation in the US Navy and Army in Korea. He was retired from sales in the advertising and publishing industry and was an avid golfer. Bill is survived by his grandchildren Tricia and Jeff Alexander, Jennifer and Tyler Pegram and great grandchildren Logan, Brooklyn and Grayson.  He was preceded in death by his son TIm Probst whose music he enjoyed and whose legacy Bill kept alive with an annual Timmy Probst Scholarship fundraiser.
