GLENVIEW, IL (October 18, 2016) -- On Tuesday Jamie Walker became the 2016 Champion Speedgolfer of the Year by virtue of his four-stroke win at the Speedgolf World Championships. Walker was the only player to finish in red figures as he posted a 2-under tally after four rounds at The Glen Club.
The Speed Golf World Championship began on Monday with two rounds of play, first a round on a strictly par-3 course and then a round on a regular course. The pattern was repeated on Tuesday.
Walker, 52-years-old, took a two shot midway point lead thanks to rounds of 50-72 that left him at 4-under. In his opening round on the par-3 course, Walker started with 15 straight pars before he birdied the final four holes.
Returning to the par-3 course for the third round on Tuesday the script was much of the same, only this time Walker parred the first 16-holes before finishing with three straight birdies to reach 7-under.
The 3-under 51 provided more then enough cushion and despite a 5-over 77 in the final round nobody was really able to challenge the Kenosha, WI resident.
A trio of players --Wesley Cupp, Rob Hogan and Mack MacLain-- finished tied for second at 2-over while Jason Hawkins was fifth at 3-over
