The Super-Senior Championship has come to a close as David Anthony raised the trophy at Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club and captured his fourth Super-Senior Amateur victory in the past five years. It was a true test of golf over the three days as the competitors faced tough playing conditions.

However, the weather was no match for Anthony, who fired a 4-under 68 in the final round and a tournament total of eight-under-par to grab the victory and outlast the field by eight strokes. The championship consists of 54 holes of gross individual stroke play, in which the field is cut to the low 60 and ties after the second round.

The first round brought excellent playing conditions, and Doug Snoap took advantage of the opportunity to post a low score. Snoap posted six birdies en route to a 5-under 67.

He led the way by three strokes over three-time champion David Anthony, who posted a 2-under 70. Anthony carded five birdies in the first round to hold solo second place. Moreover, Michael McNeely held third place with an opening round of even-par 72.

The second round brought less than favorable playing conditions. Rain loomed nearby, and the winds raged, gusting up to 40 miles per hour at various points throughout the day. However, the challenging conditions were no match for Anthony as he posted another round of two-under-par, 70 to hold a tournament total of 4-under, four strokes over Peter Wegmann. Anthony carded four birdies during his second round and only two bogeys.

In addition, only three other players fired under-par scores during the second round. Steven Walzak with a 4-under 68, Peter Wegmann with a 2-under 70, and Pete Williams with a 1-under 71 all moved up the leaderboard heading into the final round. Upon completion of the second round, 64 players made the cut at thirteen-over-par or better to advance to the final round.

Anthony took off with the lead as he expanded it to eight strokes over the final eighteen holes. The former Super-Senior Player of the Year posted five birdies and one eagle to post the low score of the day, a 4-under 68. He explained, "I did not have expectations coming into this tournament.

Anthony added, "I hit good shots the first and second day to get me rolling. Then I eagled the fifth hole today, and that gave me the confidence to get through the day." Furthermore, Anthony explained how this victory felt to him. He said, "It means a lot. I am just very fortunate. I come out here and win four out of five, and it doesn't happen very often, and I feel very fortunate and thankful. You meet the finest people playing this game, and it's such a blessing." 

In addition, Snoap climbed into solo second place with a final round of 1-under, 71. Bradley Rollinson secured third place after firing a 1-under 71 in the final round. The final round saw the most players under par, with eight competitors posting red numbers for the final eighteen holes of the tournament.
