Cog Hill shows off it's strength as toughtest course on tour!

Tournament Results Chicago Tour Skins and Pins

 On Sunday the Chicago Tour wrapped up it's 9th season with one of the largest fields for a Tour Championship. The day was perfect, weather wise and players put a peg in the ground with a lot on the line! The Chicago Cup, Wilson Staff Cup, Rookie of the year and the "Keck" award was awaiting presentation. Cog Hill was not going to be tamed easily and showed why it's revered as one of the toughtest tests in golf. With tree lined fairways, strategic placement of bunkers and green complexes that make the tour professional cringe, the Chicago members faced a true challenge.

Championship flight

It took 2 extra holes to determine a champion, but it was settled on #2, when Andy Bischoff rolled in his par putt to defeat Joe Thom.  With the victory Bischoff rocketed up the Chicago Cup standings to claim the top spot with the new playoff points in effect!  Rookie of the Year honors went to Peter Skiba, while Brandon Tudor took home the Wilson Staff Cup!

A Flight

It was a grueling day for the entire A flight as the field felt the difficulty that Dubsdread can provide.  When the dust settled Greg Van Camp won for the first time on tour edging out his competitors by 2 shots.  Andy Bailey finished in a tie for second place, which gave him enough points to claim the Chicago Cup!  Rookie of the Year honors went to Jeremy Schneider, while Tonie Price took home the Wilson Staff Cup!

B Flight

David Bush has been playing on tour for several seasons now, and this past year he was knocking on the doorstep a couple of times, but he picked a great time to record his first victory on tour!  Bush won by 4 shots.  Coming off a victory at Ravisloe, Bob DeVogelear finished in third place which earned him the title of Chicago Cup Champion in his second season on tour! Rookie of the Year honors went to Jon Czerwien, while Joe Corsei took home the Wilson Staff Cup!

C Flight

It was a tense day in the C flight with several players within striking distance of the Chicago Cup.  However the day belonged to Chris Hadac who shot 86 to win by 3 shots.  Hadac's round couldn't have come a better time.  Entering the day he was currently in 6th place in the Chicago Cup standings and with the top 5 struggling on the difficult track Hadac seized the moment to capture the tournament title, Chicago Cup and Rookie of the Year!  Roy Robbins took home the Wilson Staff Cup.

D Flight

Dwayne French playing in his first year on tour, made sure to make it an unforgetable experience.  Shooting 95, he won the tournament by 3 shots to claim his 2nd major championship of the season!  Ed Mallett finished in fifth place and that was enough to take home the Chicago Cup after a dominating season on tour.  Rookie of the Year honors went to Dwayne French, while Eric Bonnecare took home the Wilson Staff Cup!

Dan Keck Award

The 2018 season was a unique one for many reasons, but one thing always remains constant: the Chicago Tour has a great group of members that define what the tour is built upon: Competition, Comraderie and Sportsmanship.  Over the last couple of seasons, the tour has lost past members to a terrible disease and one of the first members to wage the battle against cancer was Dan Keck.  Keck first teed it up with the tour in April 2010 and quickly become a well liked and respected member of the tour.  Several years later Dan was diagnosed with cancer and passed away shortly after.  

In his honor, as well as the other tour members that have fought the battle against cancer, the Chicago Tour has created the "Keck" award.  It's an important honor that the tour directors believes defines the core of the tour.  Past recipients include: Roy Robbins, Fred Alaimo Sr, &  Lou Rymarcsuk.  This year we are pleased to annouce the player who defines the core pillars of the tour is Jeff Lanas.  Jeff is liked by all, competes to the fullest extent, but is also quick to praise the champion if the day was not belonging to himself. Next time you see Jeff, I'm sure you will see him smiling and we know that Dan Keck would love to shake his hand.

We would like to thank everyone that has supported the tour in 2018!  We are already hard at work for the 2019 schedule.  Good luck to those competing in the Border Battle and National Tour Championships!
