LAS VEGAS, NV (October 29, 2016) -- For the third time in the last four years Gary Carpendale has won the Las Vegas Senior Amateur. Carpendale used a big final round to finish one-stroke in front of first round leader Peter Dunlap at Las Vegas Golf Club.

In the final round Carpendale used a 5-under 67 to finish 9-under. Beginning the day two back and on the 10th hole, Carpendale turned in a 1-under first nine to reach 5-under. He then caught fire on the final nine with a four birdie 4-under 32 to reach the winning number. Carpendale sealed the deal with a birdie on his 18th hole, the par-5 9th.

For the two days Carpendale was a combined 6-under on the front nine.

Dunlap played well throughout the final day as he posted a 2-under 70 that left him 8-under for the 36-hole event. On his first nine, the backside, Dunlap shot a 1-over 37 to drop back to 5-under. Now tied for the lead with Carpendale, Dunlap came up one shot short of forcing a playoff as he birdied three-times.

Finishing in a tie for third was John Turn and Super Senior Division winner Frank Abbott at 6-under. In fifth it was Steve Kern at 3-under.


Peter Dunlap fired a bogey-free 6-under 66 in the first round of the Las Vegas City Senior Amateur to take a two-stroke lead. Defending champion Gary Carpendale and Frank Abbott will begin the final round at Las Vegas Golf Club tied for second place following 4-under 68's on Friday.

Dunlap opened his day on the 10th hole and birdied twice on his first nine to turn in 2-under 34. Once Dunlap made the turn things began to heat up and he rolled in birdies on Nos. 1, 4, 7 and 9 to close with an impressive 4-under 31.

Carpendale, who overall has won two of the last three titles, played flawless golf as well and he picked up a pair of birdies on each side to reach 4-under.

Abbott moved into second place with a five birdie, one bogey round. Starting on No. 10, Abbott was even-par through nine holes before catching fire on the final nine with a bogey-free, four birdie side. The birdies were carded on the 1st, 4th, 6th and 9th holes.

John Turk is in third at 3-under while John Corbin, Tom Sweigart and Gary Lanzen are tied for fifth at 1-under.
