WASHINGTON, D.C. –  The American Bakers Association (ABA) is pleased to announce that longtime friend of ABA and Director of Golf at Caves Valley Golf Club, Dennis Satyshur, will return as the tournament pro during the 2018 Paul Abenante PEC Golf Tournament on Tuesday, April 17, at the ABA Convention in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Satyshur’s golf career has been extensive through his involvement with the golf community, including mentoring Professional Golf Association (PGA) professionals. A PGA member himself, he has been welcomed back to the ABA Convention golf tournament year after year for the annual event. As in 2017, World Long Drive Champion Dan Boever, who ranks among the most popular performers on the golf exhibition circuit, will again join him on the course for this year’s tournament. Boever specializes in unexpected skill shots on the course and demonstrates unconventional strategies for hitting the green with plenty of tricks in his bag for Convention attendees.

“We are honored that Dennis will generously lend his skill instruction, camaraderie and sportsmanship to the ABA Convention golf tournament again this year. We appreciate the personalization that he offers the Convention attendees,” said ABA President & CEO Robb MacKie. “We also look forward to Dan’s surprising and amusing approach to golf that is sure to entertain the golf tournament participants.”  

“Dennis is a highly respected and talented golf professional, and I’ve enjoyed working alongside him and the ABA members over the years,” said tournament Co-coordinator Phil Burris, D. Thomas & Associates, Inc.

“We are excited for another outstanding year at the golf tournament, and we are glad to welcome back Dan and his highly entertaining trick shots,” said tournament Co-coordinator Pete Frederick, President, Grain Craft.

This year’s tournament will take place at the Camelback Inn Golf Course in Scottsdale Ariz., a brief shuttle ride from The Phoenician. The Phoenician’s signature course is undergoing a 10-month-long redesign.

Sponsored by BEMA, Bühler Inc., Kwik Lok Corp., and sponsoring members of the Allied Trades of the Baking Industry, the tournament will continue to boast the hole-in-one prize, the BEMA Golf Hole and the Pro Hole. There are several prizes being offered at the BEMA Hole for all levels of players.

The Paul Abenante PEC Golf Tournament is designed as an enjoyable event for golfers of all skill levels to join in support of ABA’s political education activities. The proceeds of the tournament are invested in critically important programs such as ABA’s Rise to Action grassroots program, congressional directories, and acquisition of high-profile speakers. It’s also designed for bakers and suppliers to maximize their ABA Convention experience in a relaxed and casual atmosphere for networking.
