BURLINGTON, VT (September 14, 2016) -- Peter Metzler went wire-to-wire to win the Vermont Senior Amateur at Burlington Country Club. Metzler finished 2-over and five-strokes in front of second place finisher's William Hadden and Chip Ward.
Metzler took the first round lead with the low round of the tournament, a 2-under 69 on Tuesday. The round included six birdies and four bogeys. In a bizarre looking scorecard over a 10-hole stretch from Nos. 6-15 Metzler birdied three holes in a row, bogeyed two in a row, birdied two in a row, bogeyed two in a row and then capped the run with a bogey.
During the second round Metzler struggled a bit, shooting a 4-over 75 but he was still able to comfortably win.
Hadden and Ward shared second place at 3-under, Kim Petty was fourth at 12-over while Michael Rozzi was 14-over in fifth.
