2019 Highlands of Elgin Recap
 

Highlands of Elgin Tournament Recap

The Chicago Tour finally got the season opener in! Due to several scheduling conflicts the 2019 season was finally played at the Highlands of Elgin. Rather than play in the snow in April, the players got a sunny August day to compete for one of the largest single day prize pools in Chicago Tour history.

Champ Flight

It was quite a weekend for Anthony Zumpano. Fresh off his victory the day before on the Milwaukee Tour at Glen Erin, Zumpano shot 74 to enter a playoff with Ryan Lowery. It was fitting that Zumpano won on the first playoff hole with a par, his day was filled with them, 17 to be exact. Only bogies at 1 and 16 kept him from a clean card. Scott Schultz took third place winning a scorecard playoff with a 1 under par back nine. Peter Skiba has narrowingly take over the top spot in the Chicago Cup standings, while Ben Kilborn leads the National Tour Points and newly promoted Tonie Price leads the Wilson Cup

A Flight

Tonie Price continued his great campaign in 2019, with another victory and with it a promotion to the Champ Flight. 4 birdies highlighted his winning scorecard. Second place went to Bobby DeVogelear finishing 3 shots back, while Michael Realie won a scorecard playoff to finish third. Eric Lee has jumped in the lead of the Chicago Cup and National Tour Points races. Fred Alaimo leads the Wilson Cup, with Mark Gilloffo hot on his tail.

B Flight

As the entire flight made the turn it was a log jam on the leaderboard, however Jon Czerwien was the only player in the B Flight to break 40 on the back nine (he shot 38) to card an 80 and win by 2 shots. Czerwien's day included back to back birdies at 14 and 15. Second place went to David Bush, while Nancy Hatten took third. Tim Fyfe has risen to the top of the Chicago Cup leaderboard, while David Bush leads the National Tour Points race. Chris Hadac is the player to catch in the Wilson Cup standings.

C Flight

It was a nice comeback victory for Larry Bunge. In the hunt at the turn, Bunge carded a back nine 40 to finish with an 83, good for a 2 shot victory. Bunge finished his round with 3 consecutive pars to claim the title. Matt French finished in second place, while Balvinder Singh took third place. Rick Pisarczyk is leading both the Chicago Cup and the National Points race while Mike Cokins jumped into the first spot of the Wilson Cup Standings.

D Flight

It's often said that when it rains, it pours, and that must be how Fred Alaimo Sr is feeling. After battling out a victory at Stonewall Orchard for his first tour victory earlier this season, he backed it up just a few weeks later with his second! Alaimo was the only D flight player to break 100, and it was all he needed. His birdie at #6 was the difference in the game, and reminds us to always keep grinding! Second place went to Mike McGuire and third to Neil Burkhardt as they came out on top of the scorecard playoffs. With his 2019 splash of a season, Fred Alaimo Sr leads the way in the "trifecta": the Chicago Cup, Wilson Cup, and National Points race!!
