Reeves, Bobroski, Foggia, Canarelli Win Highland Falls SNGA Tour Titles

Will Reeves (Championship), John Bobroski (Senior), David Foggia (Silver) and Jeff Canarelli (Net) won titles in the 2023 SNGA Tour Series at Highland Falls. The tournament was held Feb. 25, 2023, at Highland Falls Golf Club at Golf Summerlin.–By Bill Bowman,


Will Reeves survived a roller-coaster round in earning his first SNGA title.

Reeves, who had a second in an event last fall, had four birdies, eight pars, fives bogeys and a double bogey on his scorecard.

He said the victory was a battle from start to finish.

“It was a really different kind of day,” said Reeves who moved to Las Vegas last fall and works as a caddie at Cascata. “With the amount of wind gusts along with on and off rain, you really had to take it shot by shot.”

He did just that and it worked out…for the most part.

“The best shot I hit was on the par-5 16th,” he said. “I hit a boring 3-iron from 255 yards to about 15 feet. I missed the eagle putt but still made birdie.”

But with the good, came the bad.

“I followed that up with a double bogey on the next hole so there you go,” he said with a laugh.

He added he’s working toward a future professional career and this is one more step toward that possibility.

“I’m trying to work on my game,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s coming together.

John Bobroski won for the first time in a year and a half, posting a birdie on the final hole to seal the victory.

After his last victory, a Net event in the fall of 2021, Bobroski said he had a team title, a net championship and all that was missing was a gross crown.

Now he’s got it…even if it’s a little later than he had hoped.

“The game is finally coming around,” he said. “I’ve been working hard at it and it’s starting to show. I played pretty well at the Nye tournament last weekend. I had one poor tee shot that cost me a triple bogey so I should have been in the hunt.”

He said this weekend the game was pretty solid…except for on the greens.

“I hit the ball well,” he said. “I just had way too many putts. I had four three-putts. The game is there…I just need to make putts now.”

He added a couple of drives almost proved costly again.

“I had a poor tee shot on 15 and hit it out of bounds,” he said. “Then the second drive was unplayable and I wound up with a seven on the hole.”

He had chances over the final three holes before his closing birdie.

“I just missed birdies on 16 and 17,” he said. “Then I made about a 10-footer on 18 for birdie. It was the longest putt I made all day. My other birdie was a two-putt on a par-5.”

David Foggia survived a double bogey on the last hole and held on for a one-stroke victory in the Silver Division.

It was Foggia’s first SNGA victory after a runnerup finish in the recent Stallion Mountain event.

“I haven’t played Highland Falls in awhile and I wasn’t sure where to hit some of the drives,” he said. “But for the most part my game was solid. I had driver and wedges on most of the holes and did well with short pitches.”

He said his double bogey on the last hole was the product of lack of familiarity with the course.

“I just hit a stupid shot,” he said. “I hit driver off the tee and ended up in a bunker left. I hit it short of the green and hit a pretty good chip shot…but then I three putted.”

Despite the ending, Foggia said it was a solid day.

“I hit every green on the front nine,” he said. “I just didn’t make any putts. I had good looks, they just didn’t fall. I was two-under after 13 when the wind picked up and we got wet and cold. We were just trying to hang on.”

Jeff Canarelli played his final three holes in three-under-par with an eagle, a par and a birdie in picking up his first SNGA title.

It was a finish Canarelli won’t soon forget…especially after his start as he was four-over after the first three holes.

“I wasn’t feeling well at the start and even contemplated withdrawing,” he said. “Now, I’m certainly glad I didn’t.”

He turned the day around with a stretch of three straight birdies to get his round going in the right direction.

“I played well in the Nye County event and played well here…after the start,” he said. “I’ve been working hard at it and it’s nice to come through with that first win.”

He cashed in with a net eagle on the 16th hole as he took advantage of not one, but two good breaks.

“I really got lucky,” he said. “I drove it into the waste area but got a real good lie. I hit a low 7-iron that rolled about 50 yards and it ended up in a sprinkler that kept it from going into a bunker. I got a drop and just lipped out the 15-footer (for eagle and a net double-eagle) but tapped it in for a birdie and a net eagle.”

He added with his play, he’s looking forward to the SNGA’s first major next week, the SNGA Championship at Highland Falls and Palm Valley.

“I feel like I’m doing good things with my game and it’s paying off,” he said. “I think it’s a good time for that first major to come up.”
