2022 Village Open Recap

From melting snow on our opener to mostly dry fairways and warm temperatures, 96 golfers met at Hot Springs Village to play our first major of the season at DeSoto and Magellan. It was a great way to make up for a cold, snowy opener.

In the Champ Flight, veteran tour player, Ben Starsky (83-78), made up a three stroke deficit from Day 1 to edge Alex Hoffman (80-82) by one stroke.

The A flight saw Logan Karsten (80-78) edge our first round leader, Chad Wintz (77-82) by one stroke to take home the trophy. Third place went to Corey Jarman (80-80). Rounding out the paid places in the A flight were Kyle Delaughter (81-81) and Kevin Dunham (80-82). Kevin beat Gary Whitt in the card off.

Leading wire-to-wire in the B-flight was Phillip Turner (81-81) with a four stroke over Ricky Brown (84-82). Third place went to Jacob Chronister (84-83). Finishing fourth and fifth respectively was LR Gardner (85-89) and Buddy Taylor (87-89).

Rodney Painter (80-96) looked like a runaway winner after shooting 80 on the first day. However, Tyler Lindsay (92-84) came from 12 strokes back to tie Rodney and force a playoff. Tyler prevailed in the playoff to take home the C-flight trophy. Eric White (85-94) was third. Raymond Peevy (91-90) finished in fourth place with Paul Golden (91-91) finishing fifth.

As the first day leaders struggled at Magellan, Yul Eslinger (89-90) stayed steady to earn a five shot victory over Jay Williams (87-95). Third place went to first round leader, Kyle McLelland (86-96). Fourth place prize was earned by Jeff Corder (97-93) with fifth place going to Scott Branscum (92-99).
