Thank you to all players who participated this past Sunday at Sugar Valley Golf Club! It was a hot day for golf but there were some hot scores posted as well, on a challenging golf course that demanded shot execution all day. Players battled the humidity for a right to hoist the crown at an exquisite course hosting our 11th official tournament of the season.

Championship flight is our first flight of the day. Former University of Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Deontey Kenner was hot in more ways than one, catching fire and tied the Golfweek Amateur Tour record for lowest official score in a single round, firing off a 66 with seven birdies. Kenner was the champion as he was the winner over Lance Sininger by five shots.

Sininger finished second and played brilliantly as well, shooting even par (71), with two birdies on the day. Lance put himself in position to win but unable make enough birdies to catch Kenner in the end. Nonetheless, a solid finish coupled by a solid round.

Dorian Vauls finished third with a respectable (73). Vauls was able to grab two birdies, however, not enough to contend for the win. Regardless, a solid round on a hot day for golf.

A flight is second. Kevin Dick was able to increase his points lead for player of the year, playing solid all day, scoring (76) and adding a birdie to clinch the championship. The win was by three shots over Kory Hemm & Matt Peacock (79's). Kevin's solid play is beginning to paint the picture used in the movie "Dodgeball", starring Ben Stiller, of his character grabbing the bull by the horns. Great playing today Kevin Dick!

Hemm, who finished second, was able to contend to win. However, unable to make any birdies on the day led to coming up a bit short in the end. Still a solid performance on the day.

Matt Peacock also shot (79), finishing a respectable third. Peacock was able to drop two birdies on the day. However, unable to make enough, knocking him out of contention to win. Still, a good score at a tough venue.

B flight witnessed Michael Anderson capture the title in closing fashion. Shooting a solid (77). Anderson was able to play brilliantly all day, making a birdie and holding off a surging Peter Detty (79), to win the championship by two shots. You're starting to flirt with the A flight hardcore Michael! The door is open, you just need to walk through, laces untied of course! Great job today!

Detty finished second, playing consistent all day, making three birdies. Eliminating a bad hole or two would have had Pete in serious contention to win today. Nonetheless, still a solid performance battling the humidity.

Ken Sloan finished third, shooting (82). Sloan also played consistent most of the day, however, a few bad holes and no birdies diminished his chances at catching Anderson. Still, a solid score on a tough day for golf.

C flight is next. Due to darkness on the playoff holes Joshi Ballal & Shea Hartwig were deemed co-champions, both shooting (86). Both Ballal & Hartwig were able to match the heat and came out on fire, clinching the championship with solid performances all day with Ballal adding a pair of birdies.

TJ Alhasan was able to card an (87) to finish third. Alhasan played consistent most of the day but was unable to go low enough to win. However, was able to lock his spot in the top three for the tour's 11th tournament of the season.

D flight is the final group of the day. Eric Combs (84) was able to raise the trophy in the end, separating himself from the rest of the field, winning by five shots and capturing the title. Combs was able to execute all day, setting himself up to win the championship in cruise control.

Brad Pope (89) finished second with a clutch chip in from 20 yards off the green on 18 putting himself one shot ahead of HallPope was able to put himself at the top of the leader board throughout the day, however, not able to make enough pars ultimately led to him coming up short in the end. Still a solid performance.

David Hall (90) finished third. Hall, battling through an injury, was able to put together some good shots throughout the day. However, a few bad holes knocked him out of contention to catch Combs in the end. Rounding out the top three for the "D" flight at Sugar Valley Golf Club.

Thank you to all players who came out and contributed to an awesome day at a great course, continuing the chase to Hilton Head!
