Winner – Chris Pestka
strolled out to the links style course at Aberdeen looking to win his second
straight. The only thing that stood in his way was first year member, Jason
Carpenter who was just moved up to the Champ Flight. Chris started his round with three straight
pars and finished the front with a total of five pars, to take a 40 to the back
nine tied with Jason Carpenter at +4.
Onto the back we went, and it was a good one down the stretch. Jason Carpenter
jumped into first place after hole 10.
Chris then turned his game up and parred the next 5 holes and added a
birdie on the par five 17th for good measure. That put Chris in with a final score of 78,
at +6 and Jason with an 81, at +9. Great battle today gentlemen. Congratulations on Two in a row, and his
third win of the year. Atta boy Chris.
Winner – Tom Estopare
First year member,
Tom Estopare, rockin’ a saucy pair of Jordan 11 Lows started his round off with
a missile right down center to set the tone for the day. It was hole 2 where he activated the calves
and parred the next four holes, also including a birdie on 6, the par five. After adding another par on 7 he finished his
front nine with a solid 38 to take a two-stroke lead onto the backside. Tom ended up carding 4 pars and nothing worse
than bogey on the back 9 to come home with a 41, and an overall total of 79, +7
to take down Ryan Marchbanks by three strokes. It only took Tom 4 events to take home his first
victory on tour. Big congratulations Tom,
it must be the shoes.
Winner – Phil Sherer
infamous Three peat be done... Mr. Sherer set out to accomplish this goal today. Phil started his round by parring 4 of the
first 5 holes, but it was the back to back par 5’s where he went eagle, birdie
to move out in front and finished the front with back to back pars to make the
turn at -1, 35. That held up for a one stroke lead over new member Ro Razavi
who had a great day himself making the turn at even par, 36. Phil started off the back with a birdie to
take him to -2. Down the stretch Phil
did hop on and off the bogey train a couple times but made a solid par on 17 and
came in with an impressive score of 77, +5 to just beat Ro Razavi by a stroke who
finished with a 78, +6. What an impressive
run of golf put together by Phil, not only is that Three in a row, but that
makes 7 wins in his last 13 Golfweek events.
Want to wish Phil a big congrats on being promoted to the A Flight. Heck of a run Phil, excited to see if you can
keep it going in the A flight.
Winner – Scott Nishimura
looking to win his third event of the year on the Golfweek tour at
Aberdeen. His round started with four straight
pars before he got off track a little with a double on the par five 6th. He added two more pars to finish the front
side with a 40 to give him a one stroke lead at the turn, over first year member
Ryan Lloyd. Onto the second nine Scottie
added four more pars and some bogies but ultimately it was just enough to get
the job done. Kelly Bordewick from the
Kansas Tour and Brandon Bley from the Indianapolis tours tied for second with
solid 83’s, at +11. They just didn’t
have what it took to take down the C flight points leader who finished with a nice
round of 82, +10. That’s Three on the
year and career win number 5 on the Golfweek Tour. I feel so bad for your Titleist golf balls
when you pull out your boom boom stick. Great
Winner – Roddy Finley
We had us a
great one in D today. First year member,
Roddy Finley was out looking for his first win on tour. This flight was tight all day, new member
Andy Holmes had a great showing, making four pars on the front carding a solid
42 to take a one stroke lead to the back.
The Finley brothers where hot on his tail. Justin Finley also came out and put up a
great number on the front, carding a 43 with two pars and three birdies. His big brother Roddy with a couple pars
came in with a 45, three strokes off the lead. At the turn, big brother Roddy came on strong to make a sensational
comeback carding six pars on the back to come in with an 86, +14. Andy continued to play good consistent golf
on the backside making a couple pars with the rest being bogey. That put him in the clubhouse with an 86, +14. With Roddy and Andy tied up we went to hole
10 for a playoff. Both players bombed
driver right up by the green and they were both in great position. Andy hit his wedge to the back of the green
to 14 foot where he would two putt for par.
Roddy then stepped up and hit his sand wedge to inches from the cup,
where he would tap in for Birdie and win his first ever Golfweek Amateur event.
Great round for all of you. Great win Roddy
and what a clutch shot on the playoff hole.
