Hampton Hall Golf Club was the host course for the most recent event for the Hilton Head-Savannah Tour. The course was in perfect condition and the weather was hot and humid. A total of 51 players descended on the course in a quest to gather the much needed points for the season long points race. Players took the advice of the PGA Tour and decided to "Tee it Forward" for this particular tournament. Teeing it forward made for some very low scores for the winners today.
In the Championship Flight, four players took to the course in friendly competition. Playing from the blue tees, measuring at 6925 yards, still put a premium on shot placement for the flight. The top three players fired some very impressive rounds of 73, 74 and 76 on the day. Alex Kiproff fired the 73 and won his tournament of the season. Coming in second was Robert Wyrick followed by Dustin Nemenz in third.
The A flight saw a total of 12 players take to the course. The A flight also saw the round of the day. Roger Demarco used 6 birdies to help him fire a very impressive round of 71, 1-under par. This is Roger's Golfweek Amateur Tour career low. Coming in second was Terry Lennox with an even par 72 round. Scott Ammons and Greg McCoy tie for third with 77's on the day. Great round Roger and Terry.
The B flight continued with low round train. A total of 21 players battled it out today. Three players were able to fire rounds in the 70's to secure the top three spots. Jeff Jordan and Dennis Henderson both fired rounds of 76 on the day. Both players went to a playoff. After two holes, Jeff Jordan came out on top. Coming in third was Keith Weaver with a 79 on the day.
The eight players in the C flight were ready to battle it out and secure some much needed points. The top three players were separated by just two strokes. Dan'l Moulton went 40-41 to fire the winning score of 81 today. Coming in second was Richard Davies with an 82. Rounding out the top three was Kipp Neikirk with an 83.
The D flight saw another great score from the winner. Jimmy Bryson fired an 85 on the day to secure the win over the other 5 D flight players. Paul McGee was the only other D flight player to fire a round in the 80's (88) to secure second place.
Nice round by all the winners today. We look forward to seeing everyone at Savannah Harbor on August 10th.
