TGA North Regional Mid-Am: Makohon by 2
Thanks to the Texas Golf Association for this report.
ROCKWALL, TX (August 13, 2006)--Jeff Makohon of Heath shot a four-under par 67 in the final round to edge out his nearest competitor by two shots and claim victory in the 2006 TGA North Region Mid-Amateur Championship. Rob Couture of Dallas fired a final round of two-under par 69 to earn sole possession of second place. Mike Cotter slid in for third place with a well-played three-under par 68, which also earned him the third and final exemption into the final field for the 2006 State Mid Amateur to be held at Champions Golf Club (Jackrabbit Course) from September 15-17.
Finishing in fourth place, six shots back with a 211 total was Dru Fenimore of Dallas. Fenimore’s strong showing secured him the 2006 North Regional Player of the Year award, edging past 2006 North Amateur champion Charlie Holland of Dallas, who at 20-years-old was ineligible for the Mid-Amateur. By winning the North Regional Player of the Year, Fenimore earns an invite to the TGA Shoot Out, along with the second and third place finishers in the North Regional final point standings.
During the final round, Buffalo Creek GC played a full shot harder than it did in round two, with the wind causing havoc for those teeing off latter in the day. Blistering hot temperatures continued as well in the final round, making conditions grueling for all three days of competition.
