Reno’s Stuart Smith placed third in the Senior PGA Professional Championship over the weekend, which earned him a spot in the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in May.

Smith, the director of golf at Somersett Golf Country Club, joined 34 other players in earning top spots at the 29th Senior PGA Professional Championship to advance to the 79th KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship on May 22-27, at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich.

Smith finished with 76-71-67-68—282 (-6), placing third overall in the tournament at Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, Ariz.

“This was certainly a wonderful event. I always have high expectations and have been playing well of late. I played very good golf on the weekend and managed to come through unscathed from a few errant shots. Toss in a couple lucky breaks and some good putting from short distance led to 36 holes of bogey free golf on the weekend,” he said in a news release. “Third place is a great accomplishment for me. I’m anxious to get home to the family and our new clubhouse and get back to work.”

May’s tournament will be Smith’s fourth appearance in the Senior PGA Championship and his third at Harbor Shores. 

“It’s nice to have a couple carrots dangling out there for next season,” he said. “I am very excited to go back to Benton Harbor and for more good things to come.”
