Tournament Detail Results
This weekend, the Golfweek Amateur Tour returned to Old
Kinderhook, the site of the 2016 Season Opener.
In 2016, Old Kinderhook played as one of the hardest courses on tour,
and it certainly didn’t disappoint in 2017.
The course was in phenomenal shape considering the 8.5 inches of rain
received in the week prior with the rough long and thick, giving players who
hit the fairway a huge advantage. Old
Kinderhook was a great test to conclude the Tour Players Cup Qualifying for the
2nd annual TPC at Tunica National in October.
In the Championship flight, Justin Beaston continued his
great 2017 campaign, rallying from 1 shot back on day to earn his second major
victory with a 77-72 149 total. Larry
Langley (Kansas) and JR Munson (Kansas) tied for second with 2-day totals of
153. The automatic qualifiers for the
TPC are Justin Beaston, Brett Newton and John Todd.
In the A Flight, tour rookie Nathan Smith got off to a rocky
start with an 82, but came back with a weekend best 74 to earn a one-shot
victory (82-74 156). 2016 St. Louis Cup
Champion Billy Davis put in a valiant effort with a 77-80 157 to finish a
stroke back. Kyle Korb and Matt
Borgmeyer tied for 3rd with 2-day totals of 158. The automatic qualifiers for the TPC are
Steve Hasenfratz, Billy Davis and Matt Borgmeyer.
In the B Flight, Chad Henry continued his phenomenal season
with 2 good rounds over the weekend. His
82-81 163 was good enough to best first round leader Dave Oleksa by 2 shots for
his second major victory of the season.
JJ Burt finished third with rounds of 82-84 166. The automatic qualifiers for the TPC are Chad
Henry, David Oleksa and Mike Cason.
In the C Flight, Mike Scalera came out of the gates hot with
an opening round 85 to surge to an early lead.
He fell just short on Sunday, with Bryce Vandas shooting a weekend best
84 to earn a 3 shot victory (89-84 173).
Mike Scalera finished in second with an 85-91 176. The automatic qualifers for the TPC are Bryce

Price shot a great round of 87 on Sunday, but it wasn’t enough to catch up as
he finished 3 shots off the pace (93-87 180).
With the win, Toby Chrzanowski (86-91 177) surges into the St. Louis Cup
lead with his second major victory of the season. The automatic qualifiers for the TPC are Toby
Chrzanowski, Greg Cobourn and Ronnie Price.
From here, the St. Louis Tour moves into the Race for the
St. Louis Cup Playoffs. The first
playoff event is at Tamarack on Sunday, August 27th. All players are welcomed and encouraged to
