OJAI, CA (September 13, 2016) -- Two-time U.S. Senior Amateur Champion Kemp Richardson (Laguna Niguel) held off a charging field of strong competitors in the 2016 South California Super Senior Championship at Ojai Valley Inn and Spa.

Richardson opened the scoring with a first-round-low score of 70 and followed that up with a steady 1-over 71 to hang on for the two-shot victory. Making a late run at Richardson were Dave Sheff (Dana Point) and Frank Pieper (Carmel), who both finished two back of the eventually champion at 3-over.

Sheff opened his second round with four birdies in his first eight holes en route to a 1-under 69. Pieper also came out on fire, birdieing four of his first nine before cooling down to shoot an even-par 70.


This championship is open to SCGA members who are age 65 and above and have a USGA handicap index of 10.4 or below. The championship is a 36- hole individual stroke play event, there is no qualifying as all entries are on a first come, first serve basis. For eight years this championship was incorporated into the SCGA Senior Amateur as a separate division. Starting in 2008 the Super Senior Division was removed from the Senior Amateur Championship into its own 36-hole championship.
