John Park has a career day at Stonewall!!
Tournament Results | Chicago Tour Skins and Pins
On Saturday the Chicago
Golfweek Amateur concluded their regular season at Stonewall Orchard. It was the last time players could grab
Border Battle points and players made a final move to position themselves for a
Chicago Cup run during the playoffs. The
day was ideal for scoring and several players coming out knocking down pins.
In the Championship
flight, Brandon Tudor continued his
great 2018 campaign with his third victory of the season and his first major title! Connor
Tierney played solid but finished 4 shots back and in second place, while Dave Daugherty finished in third place. Tudor has the lead headed into the Chicago
Cup playoffs, but with the points turned up a notch – it’s still anyone’s game.
In the A flight, it
was an action-packed leaderboard that went down to the wire. When the smoke cleared, Peter Skiba stepped to the winner’s circle for the first time this
season, winning by 1 shot over Tonie
Price and Karen Ford. Skiba’s day was highlighted with 5 birdies!! Curt
Bressner holds on to the top spot of the Chicago Cup, but the standings got
a bit tighter and should be an exciting finish to the season.
In the B flight, the
round of the day belonged to John Park. The longtime tour veteran needed to go out
early and he caught fire! 1 eagle and 5
birdies lead to an even par 72 for Park and he blitzed the course and field. Tim
Fyfe posted a great score of 79, while Bob
Devogelear finished in third winning a scorecard playoff over Alex Caron. Nancy
Hatten has taken over the top spot in the Chicago Cup race – and can’t wait
for the next event!
In the C Flight, it
was another tight leaderboard for the day as 5 players finished within 3 shots
of the lead with Jon Czerwien
leading the way! Czerwien shot 84 to
edge out Dena Capitani by 1 shot.
Larry Mikeska shot 86 to take solo third. Capitani moves into the
top stop of the Chicago Cup standings with 3 events to play!!
In the D Flight, Dwayne French shot 89 to take home his
first tour victory! Lou Rymarcsuk and Eric
Bonnecare both shot 93. Rymarcsuk
took home the scorecard playoff shooting 43 on the back nine. Ed
Mallett is the player to catch in the Chicago Cup standings, can anyone do

to Champ Flight (3.9 Index)
- John Park B flight to
A Flight (8.9 index)

Congratulations on the
promotions! It’s not easy to move up flights!
Please note the “Flight Freeze” is in effect for the Chicago Cup Playoffs
now. For those not familiar – all players
flights are frozen now and the player will remain in their flight for LOCAL
competition ONLY. However, if a player’s
index increases into the next range by more that .5 – they will be
promoted. This is to ensure a fair and
exciting finish to the season!
