Bluffton golfer wins Big Break

Bluffton golfer Richy Werenski defeated Savannah golfer Justin Martinson 2&1 in the championship match on the finale of Big Break The Palm Beaches, the 23rd season of Golf Channel’s reality competition franchise.

“I just thought of my parents and everything they’ve done for me. I can’t wait for them to see this,” said Werenski following the conclusion of the match. “I’m through the roof right now. I thought I was good enough to win this, and I knew if I just played my game I would have a really good chance. Now I feel that much better about my game. I’ve never felt as much pressure that I felt here. Now, I feel way more prepared for whatever the future has to offer.”
 As champion of Big Break The Palm Beaches, Werenski receives a sponsor’s exemption to compete in the 2015 Barbasol Championship on the PGA Tour (July 16-19). In addition, he receives more than $80,000 in cash and prizes. Werenski is a member of Berkeley Hall through the private club's aspiring professional option.
