ATHENS, GEORGIA — Veteran Georgia PGA member Sonny Skinner of Sylvester will be among the Georgia State Golf Association’s 2018 inductees into the Georgia Golf Hall of Fame. After competing on the PGA Tour and what is now the Web.com Tour from 1990 to the mid 2000s, Skinner became a full-time member of the Georgia PGA in 2006, and has been one of the top players in the Georgia PGA Section for more than a decade.
Skinner has five victories in three of the Georgia PGA’s “majors” along with three state senior titles, and has won both Player of the Year and Senior Player of the Year awards. He has also won those honors at the PGA of America level with top finishes in national PGA events. As a tour pro, Skinner played four years on the PGA Tour and more than a decade on its satellite tour, winning twice on what was then the Nike Tour in the 1990s.
