Milwaukee Wins the Border Battle 25-23!

Complete Recap coming soon!



Wheaton, IL - The Chicago Tour made it's final stop of the 2017 campaign at Cantigny Golf Club.  With everything on the line and the pressure super high, the players were greeted to a super hot day of golf in September!  Chicago members navigated the Woodside and Lakeside layout to finish up the season.  New in 2017 was the addition of the "Final Foursome" - which was created to give the top players in each flight the ability to "Win it all" and take home the Chicago Cup.

In the Champ Flight, Cully Johnston took home the hardware with a one shot victory over Ben Kilborn.  Johnston's shot 35-40-75 as part of the "Final Foursome" to not only claim the tournament honors but also the 2017 Chicago Cup!  The win capped off a great season for Johnston, which saw him win 3 times, 2 of which were majors (Chicago Classic and Chicago Championship).  Tim Morrow took home the Wilson Staff Cup as he shot -1 under for the season.

Rookie of the Year - Ben Kilborn

In the A Flight, perhaps the round of the year was shot as Nick Lanas blitzed the course and field shooting 37-33-70.  His 2 under par round was the only under par round all season in the A flight, and he picked the right time to do it.  The victory was Lanas's 2nd Major victory of the season, with the other being the Chicago Open at Stonewall Orchard.  Second place went to Corey Ferger and with it, enough points for his 2nd Chicago Cup title!  Nick Lanas won the Wilson Staff Cup for the 2nd consecutive year as he birdied the Wilson Cup Hole to win on tiebreakers!

In the B Flight, as in years past, this flight continues to be one of the closely contest flights for the Chicago Cup.  The day belonged to Mike Snider as he shot 41-38-79 to win by 2 shots over Mike Ericksen.  Snider started the day in 5th place of the Chicago Cup standings, but his victory earned him enough points to take home the season long competition!  A super consistent year for Snider was capped off with his first tour win!  Vic Lowensten won the Wilson Cup for the third year in a row and needed a birdie on the final hole to do it!

In the C Flight, 18 holes were not enough to decide a tournament or Chicago Cup Champion.  Mark Wilson and Lloyd Sigman both shot 88 and headed back out onto the course.  The players played 2 extra holes and still no winner was crowned.  As darkness settled in, the only choice was to break the tie via a scorecard playoff.  Wilson edged out Sigman 45-46 on the back nine to claim the Tour Championship trophy AND the Chicago Cup!  Joe Denise did not tee it up at Cantigny, but held on to win the Wilson Staff Cup shooting 1 over par for the season.

Rookie of the Year - Matt French

In the D Flight, another playoff was needed to determine the championship.  James Fifer and Fred Alaimo Sr both shot 95s to enter the playoff.  Fifer was playing for the Chicago as he was part of the "Final Foursome".  Alaimo was playing the role of spoiler, however after his tee shot landed in a tough spot and his approach was blocked by a tree, Fifer took advantage and tapped in his bogey putt to claim the title.  Jeff Lanas took home the Wilson Staff Cup with a very impressive score of -1 for the season long competition.

Rookie of the Year - Ashley Harrison

Keck Award
A few years back the Dan Keck Memorial award was created to honor a member of the Chicago Tour that exemplifies the tour pillars: Competition, Camaraderie, and Sportsmanship.  As of the original members Dan Keck brought those characteristics to the course each and every time he teed it up.  We created this award in his honor to recognize current members who do the same.  In 2015 it was Fred Alaimo Sr. In 2016 it was Lou Rymarcsuk.  In 2017 your Keck recipient is Roy Robbins.

With that the, 2017 season is in the books.  We wanted to extend a huge thank you to our team for handling 350+ Chicago members, run 28 events and handle over 1750+ rounds of golf!  Look for our 2017 season tour survey coming soon!  Our 2018 membership specials will start in November and the 2018 schedule will be released in December.
