2019 Tour Championship Recap @ Bull Valley

Congratulations to our champions!!


The 2019 season concluded at Bull Valley Golf Club. In addition to all of the point and cup races, the day had extra drama, as the weather played a big factor. The threat of thunder and lightning was present all day long, and the on-and-off rain made conditions difficult to manage. However, the Chicago membership pressed on and in the end the tournament was completed and champions were crowned!

Champ Flight - The day and season belonged to Ben Kilborn. Kilborn shot 76 to claim the tournament title with second place going to Peter Skiba and third to Anthony Zumpano. Kilborn's victory earned the season long Chicago Cup. Meanwhile Nick Lanas took home the season long Wilson Scoring Challenge Cup and Matt Solis took home rookie of the year honors.

A Flight - As if the weather and point race drama wasn't enough, how about a playoff to determine it all?! After and additional 2 playoff holes, Curt Bressner ended the tournament and season with a birdie on the second playoff hole. Bobby Devogelear took home second place while Grant Evans took home third. As a result of the victory Bressner took home the Chicago Cup while Fred Alaimo held on for the Wilson Scoring Challenge title. Rookie of the year honors went to Eric Lee.

B Flight - The day belonged to Mike McLaughlin as he cruised around the soggy course playing steady golf. A big birdie at 15 built a lead that he would not give back. Danny Eastep took 2nd while Nancy Hatten won a scorecard playoff for third place. In an example of every stroke matters, it was the 5th place finish for Tim Fyfe that clinched the Chicago Cup by 16 points! One of the closest finishes we've had on tour! Brian Barnes took home the Wilson Scoring Challenge, while Josh Borysiak earned Rookie of the year honors.

C Flight - Chris Bilba was the player of the day, as he shot 88 to claim the tournament title. He played steady golf, and avoided the big numbers. Second place went to Chet Laskowski while third went to Rick Pisarcyzk. That third place finish for Pisarcyzk sealed the Chicago Cup AND Wilson Scoring Challenge after a summer filled with great golf. Rookie of the year honors went to Gelmer Moran.

D Flight - Another playoff ensued after the 18 hole round, this time Mike McGuire was the last player standing after rolling in his par putt on the first playoff hole. Dwayne French took home second place while Ed Mallet won a scorecard playoff for third place. However, not even losing a scorecard playoff could derail the "dream" season for Fred Alaimo Sr. One of the tour favorite "good guys", Alaimo took home the Chicago Cup after a season that saw him win TWICE, both were his only victories in his 8 years on tour! Mallet's season saw him earn the Wilson Scoring Challenge while Trang Nyguen took home rookie of the year honors.

What another great season! The Chicago Tour celebrated with it's 10 local season in grand fashion! A great schedule, a great group of members, and a memorable season!

One of the best parts of the tour, is the people we meet and get to know while playing this great game. One of the most special awards we give out is the "Keck" award. The award is named after the late Dan Keck, one of the original members of the tour 10 years ago. The award is meant to remember Dan's spirit and is a reminder of our three pillars the tour is built upon: Competition, Camaraderie and Sportsmanship. Previous winners have included Mike Copp, Fred Alaimo Sr, Lou Rymarcyzk, and Jeff Lanas. This year's recipient is Dave Doerr. Dave is an easy choice, as he is one of the most respected and liked players on tour!

Thank you again for a great season! Good luck to those playing at Nationals and be on the look out for our 2020 schedule in December.
