The Golf Club at Savannah Harbor was the host course for the most recent major event for the Hilton Head-Savannah Tour. The course was in perfect condition and the weather was hot and humid all day long. A total of 51 players took to the course in a quest to gather the much needed points for the season long points race. With this being a major, the points were doubled. With each flight having tight battles for the points race, 900 points would make a big impact.
In the Championship Flight, three players took to the course in friendly competition. The Championship flight had the privilege of playing up a tee. Instead of the extremely long and tough black tees, they played from the gold tees. This served the players well. Alex Kiproff continued his hot streak by winning his second tournament of the year and second in a row. Finishing in a tie for second was Nick Kiproff and Wayne McKenney. The 900 points earned for this tournament win stretches Alex's Champ flight points lead. With two tournaments left, will he be able to hold on?
The A flight saw a total of 11 players take to the course. Also playing from the gold tees, the A flight saw one player break into the 70's. That player was newly promoted to the A flight, Scott Ammons. Scott went 43-36 to fire a 79 on the day. Giving him his first ever major championship. Finishing second was Brian Fox followed by Brian Nicholson in third. With the win, Scott vaults up to second place in the A flight race, just one point behind leader Terry Lennox.
The B flight had a tight battle right to the very last hole. A total of 20 players battled it out today. With Doug Hudock in the clubhouse with the early lead at 81, two players had a chance to tie him on 18 green. Craig Ehde bogeyed the hole to shoot 81 while Keith Weaver double bogeyed it to shoot 82. Off to hole one Doug and Craig went. After one hole Doug bogeyed and Craig made a par to secure the win. This is Craig's first win this season. With the T3 finish, Weaver increases his points lead just a little. This flight will have one of the best battles to the finish MIT should be fun.
The eight players in the C flight were ready to battle it out and secure the much needed 900 points. Sitting in second place coming into the tournament was Todd Saylor followed by Dan'l Moulton. With flight leader John Donat not in the field today, this was a perfect chance for the two to catch p on some points. They did just that. Todd won the C flight by firing an impressive 81. While Dan'l put up an 84 to take home second place. This too will be a good battle to the end.
The D flight saw another great score from the winner. Paul McGee played solid golf the whole round to win the 900 points. This 900 point win increases his flight points lead in the D flight over a tough field of competitors. Coming in second was Lonnie Harley. Will Paul hold it together or will he get caught from behind? We will have to wait and see.
Nice round by all the winners today. We look forward to seeing everyone at Heron Point on September 14th.
