Dale Bouguennec of Pinehurst, N.C., birdied his final two holes at Greensville (S.C.) Country Club to post a final-round 1-over 73 and a three-round total of 221 at the Chanticleer Senior. It was enough to push him one shot ahead of Walter Todd and Todd Hendley and take the Chanticleer crown.
Bougennec’s story this week was one of consistency. He had rounds of 75-73-73 and slowly worked his way up the leaderboard. There was only one score higher than bogey on his card, and it was the double he made on No. 8 the first day.
Behind Todd and Hendley, Georgians Allen Peake and Rusty Strawn finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
In the super senior division, Don Russell of Tequesta, Fla., shot a final-round 73 for a three-day total of 221 to finish four shots in front of Greenville Country Club's own Johnny Dennis.
John Blank of Frostburg, Md., shot a final-round 76 at the Riverside Course for a three-day total of 225 to come from behind and win the legends division by three shots over John Casstevens and Bill Engel.
ROUND TWO RECAP
With a 4-under 68 in Thursday’s second round, Walter Todd has taken over the individual lead at the Chanticleer Senior. Todd, of Laurens, S.C., is at even par for 36 holes and two shots ahead of Allen Peake.
Todd’s round was the only player under par in the senior division on Thursday. He had three birdies on the back nine at Greenville (S.C.) Country Club.
For his part, Peake had an even-par 72 to make up some ground. It was the second-best score of the day.
Dale Bougeuennec is third at 4 over, followed by Rusty Strawn at 5 over. First-round leader Bob Levy followed an opening 73 with an 83 to drop to the 25th position on the leaderboard.
Don Russell leads the super senior division at 4-over after rounds of 73-75.
Bill Engel is atop the legends division at 3 over.
ROUND 1 RECAP
After the opening round at Greenville (S.C.) Country Club, Bob Levy leads the Chanticleer Senior with a 1-over 73. Levy had four bogeys and three birdies in his effort on Wednesday, which was enough to put him one shot ahead of three players tied with an opening 74.
Levy, of Windermere, Fla., is a familiar face in this event. His 25th-place finish in 2018 was the lowest in recent years. Levy was T-10 at this event in 2014, and finished in the top 15 the three years after that.
Behind Levy, Todd Hendley, Sean McAvoy and Allen Peake all opened with 2-over 74. Four more players had an opening 75.
Defending champion Pat Thompson of Asheville, N.C., had an opening 80 and dropped to 40th.
David Crocker leads the super senior division with even-par 72. He was 3 under on the front before going 3 over on the back nine.
John Casstevens is on top of the legends division with a 1-over 72 on Chanticleer’s Riverside Course.
ABOUT THE Chanticleer Senior Invitational
The Chanticleer National Senior Invitational started
in 2011 with the vision that it would provide a
superbly conditioned, very challenging course on
which to present a premier invitational tournament
for elite senior and super senior golfers recognized
for their playing accomplishments on a national and
international scale. The limited field is determined
from the pool of applicants with preference given to
players' performance in national and international
events as well as the current rankings. As an
part of our vision, we provide extraordinary
hospitality and great value to both our players and
their significant others.
The Senior Division competition will be for players
55-64, as well as other
older qualified players who may desire to play in this
division. The Super
Senior division will be for players 65-70, as well as
other older qualified
players who prefer to play at Chanticleer. There will
be a cut after 36 holes.
As an option for Legends, we will host a separate
70+ Legends division at
our Riverside course provided we have a minimum
number of 16 players.
There will NOT be a cut.
