Colorado (CGA) Senior Stroke Play Championship

HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO (September 1, 2005) -- Robert Polk of Pinery CC shot 75 in the final round to win the 2005 CGA State Senior Stroke Play Championship at Highlands Ranch Golf Club by three strokes. His three-day total of 213 (three-under par) was the only sub-par total for the championship. Polk was awarded the Warren Simmons Trophy as champion, which will be displayed at his home club (Pinery CC) for the next year. Earning the CGA Silver Medal as runner-up was 2004 CGA Senior Points winner Bill Boyd of Highland Hills GC, who shot three consecutive 72’s to finish at even-par 216. 2004 runner-up, and home course favorite, Larry Netherton shot 75 in the final round to finish third at 217. Colorado Golf Hall of Famer John Olive of the Broadmoor GC finished at 218 in a fourth place tie with first round leader Harry Johnson of Eagle Ranch GC. Olive also won the Super Senior Division title (60 and older) by four strokes over Roger Gunderson who finished at 222. Three players tied for sixth at 219 including David Farabaugh of Ranch CC, 2005 U.S. Senior Open qualifier Scott Radcliffe of Rolling Hills CC, and 2000 champion Charlie Post of Plum Creek CC.

Polk, who turned 50 this June, is off to a tremendous start as a Senior having won the CGA Senior Four-Ball title last week with partner Jim Pierce, and now winning his first CGA individual title at the Senior Stroke Play.

“I hope be competitive in the Senior group for a long time…hopefully as long as John Olive,” said Polk afterward.
