Dave Ranney, PGA Head Professional at Lamoni G & CC is the 2014 Iowa PGA Senior PGA Player of the Year. The Senior PGA Player Of the Year race was VERY, VERY close with only 1 point separating the winner and runner-up, which was Kevin DeNike of Blue Top Ridge. Dave and 3 other contenders for the title, Kevin DeNike, Joe Butler and Jeff Smith, all participated in the PGA Senior PNC last week in Florida. Bonus points are awarded for this National Championship and play by the four qualifiers could have affected the outcome. Dave continued great play and secured his Player of the Year title for 2014.

He won the senior division at the Iowa PGA Foundation Pro Am held at Glen Oaks CC, the Pro -Scratch held at Ames G & CC, the Otter Creek Regional and tied for first at the Prairie Meadows Pro Am held at Copper Creek GC.
