Aaron Gavin wins inaugural Wisconsin Mid-Amateur
MIDDLETON, Wisc. (Sept. 9, 2014) — Aaron Gavin will be the first name engraved on the new Wisconsin Mid-Amateur trophy after his wire-to-wire victory at Bishops Bay Country Club.
The Wisconsin State Golf Association revamped a previous event called The Director's Cup and replaced it with a mid-amateur championship, and Gavin is its first winner.
Gavin led by two after a first-round 69 and needed only an even-par 72 to cruise to a three-shot win.
Finishing alone in second place was Kevin Cahill, who began the round five shots behind Gavin. Cahill had the tournament's second lowest round of the day – a two-under 70 — which helped him jump into the runner-up position.
The lowest round of the entire tournament went to Jake Dunn, who after a 79 on Monday went five-under on Tuesday and posted 67, finishing in a tie for third with Kari Hannula, Jr. at 146.
