On this day October 24th 2016 The Northeastern New York PGA inducts John Maurycy, PGA into our Hall of Fame. The NENY Hall of Fame recognizes and honors those PGA Members who through their lives, careers, service and support have represented the highest essence of PGA membership.
Johns playing career spanned more than five decades, highlighted by qualifying for and playing in three US Opens in 1963,’64 and ‘65 while playing on the PGA Tour. Locally John won countless section events including the Championship in 1970 and 1979. John also broke the course records at Mohawk Golf Club (64), Schuyler Meadows ((63) and Mount Anthony Country Club (63). Professionally John held Head Professional positions locally for over 35 years, 25 of which were spent at the Mohawk Golf Club where his work ethic and commitment were surpassed only by his ability to transform the games of many players with a pragmatic approach to the game. In addition to his playing and teaching accomplishments John’s mentoring of young Assistant Professionals produced many successful PGA members.
Entrance into this Hall of Fame is the highest honor that Northeastern New York Professional Golfers Association can bestow John Maurycy. This faithful PGA Professional will be forever remembered for his significant and enduring contributions to the game of golf and the PGA of America.
