Sugarbush golf pro and 2006 PGA Professional National Champion Ron Philo will be defending his title this weekend. Philo, who joined the Sugarbush team this past winter, will tee off in the 40th PGA Professional National Championship this Thursday in Sunriver, OR.Philo captured the 2006 title in dramatic fashion in a sudden-death victory at the Atunyote Golf Club in Verona, NY, last June. The 41-year-old began the last day of the tournament trailing the leaders by three shots. That quickly changed when he birdied the second hole and aced the par-3 third hole.
