Freels wins shortened Tennessee Senior
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 13, 2013) — After round two of the 2013 Tennessee Senior Amateur Championship was suspended due to a dangerous weather situation, the TGA announced that the championship would be decided upon 36 holes of play instead of the originally scheduled 54 hole championship. Play commenced Friday and Mike Freels of Chuckey was the victor with a 2-under par 142 total. Freels played alongside round one leader Doug Harris who finished a stroke behind Freels. Freels would stumble with an opening bogey, but got the putter hot making birdies at four of his last seven holes to win by a stroke.

In the Super Senior Championship, Jack Ramsey of Germantown captured his second state championship of the year. Ramsey, who won the Tennessee Super Senior Four-Ball with fellow Memphis native Tim Thompson held the first round lead and never relinquished. Ramsey would card a 72-76-148 total for a 4-over par victory and by a single stroke over runner-up Dan Schorsten.

ABOUT THE Tennessee Senior Amateur

The inaugural State Senior Amateur Championship was played in 1965 at the original Colonial Country Club in Memphis. Curtis Person, a Colonial member, shot 211 to easily outdistance Earl Pate by seven strokes. When Chattanooga’s Lew Oehmig won five straight championships from 1969 to 1973, the tournament was discontinued. It was revived in 1980 and Oehmig won two more for a record seven. It was 1993 before Tennessee came into compliance with USGA rules by limiting senior play by amateur men to 55 and older. In 2008 the Super Senior division was added for players 65 and over.
