Henry Picard Canterbury Cup: One for the Thumb for Fairchild and Sparrow

The local Canterbury team of Bob Fairchild and Brian Sparrow captured their fifth Henry Picard – Canterbury Cup this past weekend running away from the field with a one over par total score of 285.

A two-main team event, (two days better ball of partners, final day is aggregate score of partners) the Picard Cup attracted a strong field but the “home cooking” was good for the local boys Sparrow and Fairchild. Runner up with 292 was the team of Doug Hauenstein of Aurora, OH and partner Ken Kinkopf of Columbus, OH.

A three-way tie for third at 293 included the teams of Eric Burch and Chris Beto from Chicago, Peter Malik and Steve Hiltebrant and Bill Lundeen of Cincinnati and partner John Kartheiser of Lexington, KY.

The Senior Division was won by the Canadian team of Chris Kelos and Carl Nanni with 297 and the Senior runner-up was Greg Alksnis and Michael Kohn of Michigan.

ABOUT THE Canterbury Cup

The Henry Picard - Canterbury Cup is a Major that draws a field of accomplished players from all over the country. The three-day team event features a Best Ball round each day, and the middle day will have an additional 9-hole alternate shot (all divisions playing the same nine holes) that will count toward the 63-hole championship. A practice round is available to be played the day prior to the tournament. The tournament will have three divisions: Mid-Am, Senior (for those teams with both partners 55 - 64 years old), and Super Senior (65+). Qualified amateurs are encouraged to apply.

Canterbury is an older traditional golf course that has hosted several professional major championships, including two US Opens, a PGA Championship and most recently the '96 Senior Open as well as two US Amateur championships.
