Kentucky Senior Special: David Brown takes top prize
From the Kentucky Golf Association
NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (July 14, 2014) -- A few brief rain showers didn’t dampen the spirits of the Commonwealth’s senior golf contingency on July 14 at Champion Trace Golf Club in Nicholasville.
The Kentucky Golf Association Senior Summer Special was not forecast to be a nice day with strong potential storms, but the 100 player field was able to avoid any weather delays and play some great golf in the process!
The Mid-Senior Division (Ages 40-54) got things started with David Brown of Louisville rallying after a few difficult holes on the front side to finish with back nine 33 and a round of 74 to take Low Gross honors by five shots.
Jason Geer of Louisville took home Low Net for the division by one shot with a 74. The Super Seniors – those 70 and over – had a super day on the golf course. William Damron of Harold fired a solid round of three-under-par 69 for the Low Gross victory by three shots and to shoot less than his age.
Doug Francke of Louisville was also able to fire under his age for his gross score (an even-par 72) and win the Low Net with a round of 63 and a two shot margin of victory. Congratulations to both of these gentlemen on these superb rounds of golf! Flight #1 also showcased some good golf with Dennis Long of Shelbyville and Scott Pottinger of Louisville firing rounds of 71.
Pottinger’s two-under-par back nine score allowed him to secure Low Gross honors, while Long’s net 69 took home the Low Net prize. Flight #4 saw Gregory Lynch of Lexington as the Low Gross winner after a round of 83.
Doug Terry of Sanders also had a fine round of golf to take Low Net honors with a 69. In Flight #3, Gerald Belcher was able to use the local knowledge of his home course to fire an impressive round of 74 and take Low Gross honors by three shots. Rex Fowler of Frankfort turned his gross 77 into a net 66 to take top honors in the Division. Flight #2 rounded out the day – and last was certainly not least.
Eddie Venters of Lexington had a one-under-par front nine and finished with a nice round of 74 for the Low Gross victory. Terry Lester of London also had a solid day and his net 71 bested the others in division.
