Chalk up another win for Doug Hanzel in 2019. The 62-year-old from Savannah, Ga., won the John Kline Senior title for the first time in his career. This is one of few senior trophies that Hanzel had yet to put his name on.
Hanzel, who was the AmateurGolf.com Senior of the Year in 2017, left the rest of the field in the dust at the Landings Club in his native Savannah. He won wire-to-wire after opening with a 5-under 67. Subsequent rounds of 72-68 left Hanzel at 8 under, which was good for a 10-shot victory.
Already this year, Hanzel has won the Jones Cup Senior, Florida Azalea Senior, Senior Porter Cup and was stroke-play medalist at the U.S. Senior Amateur.
Behind Hanzel, Greg Sanders of Anchorage, Alaska and Jack Kearney of Peachtree City, Ga., tied for second at 2 over. Stephen Maddalena of Jackson, Mich., was 4 over and in solo fourth, followed by another Georgian, Allen Peake, in solo fifth at 5 over.
Marc Fried of Solon, Ohio, won the super senior division with an even-par total.
Johnny Blank of Frostburg, Md., was 2 over and won the grand master division.
