Jon Lindstrom (L) and Chris Kamin
Jon Lindstrom (Senior) and Chris Kamin (Mid-Master) were among the winners of their respective divisions at the 2023 Trans-Mississippi Golf Association's Senior and Mid-Master Championships which concluded Thursday at Hacienda Golf Club in La Habra Heights, Calif.
Lindstrom, a resident of Denver, Colo. and a three-time Colorado Golf Association Mid-Amateur champion, opened with a brilliant 6-under 65 and never looked back en route to posting a 4-under total of 209 (65-72-72) which was good for a two-stroke victory over John Adams. Craig Davis finished at even par 213 while TMGA President and U.S. Walker Cup Captain Mike McCoy finished fourth at 3-over 216.
Lindstrom started his final round with a four-shot lead on the field and shot a 1-over 72 in his final round to pick up his second victory of the year after winning the Heron Creek Senior in January. He has finished no lower than third in three other events this year. Lindstrom also won the International Mid-Amateur & Senior Team and Individual Championship in South Carolina last August.
The 55-year-old is believed to be the first Coloradan to win the TMGA senior championship, which debuted in 2000 for players 55 and older.
Kamin won his second TMGA Mid-Master title, shooting three under-par rounds for a total of 6-under-par 207. Kamin held his lead from the second round and finished five shots over solo second-place Jonathan Minkoff of Glendale, Calif. The first-round leader, Marc Engellenner of Rocklin, Calif., finished in third place with a total score of 2-over-par 2015.
Curtis Worley won the Super Senior Division with a 5-over score of 218. He started the final round three shots off the lead but shot an even-par 71 to hold off a hard-charging Jeff Burda who shot a final round 68 to jump into solo second.
In the Legends Division, Patrick Rohan played very consistent golf to claim the title and shoot a four-over-par 75 and 13-over-par 226 for the tournament, six strokes clear of Dave Runberg Centennial, Colo. who finished at 19-over-par for three rounds.
