2022 Bella Vista Major Recap

The second major of the Arkansas Golf Week Amateur Tour was threatened by thunderstorms, but the golf goddess smiled on a group of 90 golfers and the storm parted before reaching Bella Vista. The weather was gorgeous for both days at the Scotsdale course and the Highlands course. We ended April and started May on a dry golf course.

In a five player Champ flight shootout, Alex Hoffman (74-75) outlasted 5 players to take home the Champ Flight trophy. Dustin Cole (71-80) took home second place money.

The A flight saw the tournament’s only playoff as Donald Gay (74-82) outlasted Chad Wintz (76-80) in a one-hole playoff to finish first. Gary Whitt (79-78) and Greg Connell (76-83) rounded out the paid places in the A flight

The B Flight was a little less dramatic as LR Gardner (77-84) lead wire-to-wire for the win and a promotion to the A Flight. Finishing second was Patrick Eaton (89-79). Brian Barnes (83-86) finished third with Arkansas Tour Director, Jerry Homishak,  (82-87) taking fourth in the card off with Brian.

In the C flight Rick Muniz (81-83) posted some stellar scores to win the C flight. The rest of the players who placed were separated by one stroke for each place. Nathan Holden (83-89) took second. Third, fourth, and fifth went respectively to Kansas Tour Director, David King (89-84), Kyle McClelland (93-81), and Dennis Drummond (82-93).

To avoid and Arkansas sweep, the D Flight saw Brad Haeffner (87-86) overtake John Cochrane (81-93) to win first place. Richard McMahan (93-83) won a three way card off with Louis Ralph (89-87) and Jeff Myers (88-88) to take third place.

Our next tournament is at Granada in Hot Springs Village. The Village courses are always great places to play. Sign up early as you move towards the road to the National Finals in South Carolina.
