Last weekend was absolutely perfect for the Club, Senior & Super Senior Championships. The weather was perfect and there was a great field of players all vying for titles in their respective flights.
The Club Championship: We had 7 guys battling it out to see who would take the title of Club Champion. After the first day everyone was packed together, with only a couple strokes separating the field. With a come from behind win, Howie Hoffman, who two nights before suffered a freak toe injury and was a game time decision to play in the tournament, comes out swinging with a smooth 72 to clinch the win. He is your 2018 club champion...CONGRATS HOWIE!! Dave Supalla finishes in second place. (Hoffman 145, Supalla 146)
Flight 1 saw some ups and downs, but was not short on excitement. After the dust had settled on Saturday only 3 strokes separated the top 3 guys. With the Saturday leader withdrawing, this left Richard Brynteson in prime striking distance. He comes back from one down and takes the first in Flight 1... CONGRATS RICHARD!! Mark Kraus and Todd Crandell finish 2nd and 3rd respectively. (Brynteson 159, Kraus 161, Crandell 165)
Flight 2 was more of the same. 4 strokes separated the top four players in flight 2. Pete Steichen came out blazing on Saturday with an 81 and had a 4 shot lead heading into Sunday. However it was not meant to be for Mr. Steichen as Ramiro Sifuentes comes blazing back for another come from behind win to take Flight 2...CONGRATS RAMIRO!! Steichen, Monogue, and Lindstrom finish 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. (Sifuentes 166, Steichen 167, Monogue 170, Lindstrom 171)
Flight 3 was a different story. After Saturday, two players had control of the field. Curt Medina and Richard Brower were set for an old fashioned showdown on Sunday with only 1 stroke separating them. Richard showed no signs of slowing down Sunday as he fired a net 69 to win flight 3 by a whopping 10 Strokes! CONGRATS Richard. Sheldon Silberman made up 10 strokes on Sunday to finish second. (Brower 136, Silberman 146)
The Senior Champion was again tightly compacted after the first day. Only 4 strokes separated the top half of the field. However, it would be a battle of the Hartman's on Sunday. Scott shoots a nearly flawless 74 to take first place and become the Senior Club Champion....CONGRATS SCOTT!! Steve Hartman and Forrest Nelson take 2nd and 3rd. (Scott Hartman 153, Steve Hartman 159, Nelson 160)
The Sr Champion Flight 1 saw another come from behind win. The Saturday lead was one stroke, however a Sunday charge by Richard Koppy landed him first place in the Senior Flight 1.... CONGRATS RICHARD!! Stan Hop took solo 2nd and Shellenbaum/Silberman tied for 3rd. (Koppy 140, Hop 143, Shellenbaum/Silberman 146)
The SUPER SENIOR event is a 1 day tournament played on Sunday. We had four players with Richard Koppy and Sheldon Silberman tying for first place. CONGRATS RICHARD and SHELDON!
