LEXINGTON, KY (Aug. 29, 2013) — Mother Nature took an early lead in the Kentucky Senior Amateur Championship at Greenbrier Golf and Country Club. The Championship had to be rescheduled from its original date after over nine inches of rain fell in a week’s time in Lexington in mid-August. When the event teed off August 28-29, the temperatures across Kentucky heated up and so did the golf by Kentucky’s best senior amateur competitors.
Tom Scheuerman of Pewee Valley found himself a shot back after the first round and a round of 69 that he felt was one of his best ball striking rounds of the season. Scheuerman did not play as well on Thursday but was able to scramble to a round of 70 to become the 2013 Champion with a 5-under-par total 139 to finish five shots ahead of first round leader, David Pohlmann of Louisville. Mike Shelbourne of Paducah followed his first round 71 with a 74 to finish in third.In the Super Senior (70+) Division, Don Wood of Louisville played two fantastic rounds of golf 72-70=142 for Low Gross honors and finished ten shots ahead of David Fraley of Somerset and 11 shots ahead of Joe Jaggers of Elizabethtown. David Herrera of Waddy fired net rounds of 67-69 to take Low Net honors, three shots ahead of Fred McMillen of Bardstown and Ronnie Dunavent of Owenton.
In the 55-59 Division, Randy Mefford of Carrollton, fired a 2-under-par 70 to finish the Championship at 145 and an eleven stroke gross victory over Michael Smith of Louisville. Tim Tudor of Louisville finished with a 36-hole total of 134 for Low Net honors. John Cassin of Lexington finished five shots back at 139 for his two net rounds.
In the 60-64 Division, Keen Shackleford of Lexington, opened with a round of 2-under-par 70, which was enough to carry him to victory and a 149 gross total. He finished one shot ahead of Williams Lewis of Shelbyville and Rick Smith of Winchester. Bob Brawner of Louisville finished with a 36-hole total of 133 for Low Net honors, which was seven shots ahead of Wayne Ashlock of Louisville and nine shots ahead of John Hamilton of Richmond.
