Maletis, Wernick claim Golfweek Senior Titles

PALM DESERT, Calif. (April 20, 2011) -- Chris Maletis (71-74-76---221) knocked off Doug Pool (75-74-74---223) to hang on and win the 2011 Golfeek Senior Amateur at the Classic Country Club.

Pool and Tom Studer were among the final round contenders but Maletis' second-round 71 proved to be too much of a cushion for the field to overcome.

Studer finished third after shooting 73-78-75--- 226.

Bob Wernick fired a final-round 75 to close the gap and win the Super Senior Division.

Wernick was seven shots off the pace after Monday's first round but battled back with a 78 Tuesday and a 75 Wednesday to upend Bob Fouke and Walt Martin, who both finished at 233 --- one shot back.

Wernick, Fouke and Martin had wiped away the competition early on but the final three remained very competitive even throughout Wednesday's final round.

After a first-round 71, Martin was three shots better than Fouke and seven better than the eventual winner. A second-round 84 by Martin evened out the trio a bit before Wernick's spectacular final round.
