GLENMORE: Ward the Labor Day champ at the MCC

RICHMOND — Last weekend, 90 players teed it up at the old Madison Country Club in the 69th  Labor Day Championship.

Hoisting the championship trophy after 54 holes of competitive golf was Richmond’s own Derek Ward. (The tourney had been shortened as only nine holes were played on Saturday because of rain.) His 11-under par score of 169 was six strokes better than runner-up Ron Layman’s 175.

Charlie Brown was third with a 177, Scott Gardiner was fourth with a 178 and Jay Simmons was fifth with a 180.

In the Consolation Flight, Kevin Lawson led the field with 179, Don Pollard was second for the second time in a row with a 181, Randy Jewell was third with a 183 and Aaron Spencer fourth with a 186.

The First Flight winner was Josh Dobson with a score of 187. Jim Stout was second with a 191; Ed Razor was third at 191 and Dave Holcomb was fourth with a 193.

The best shot of the tournament was by Josh Dobson, who won closest to the pin on No. 3 three by holing his tee shot for a hole-in-one.

Wow!

You can’t get any closer than that, baby!  

You da man!.

The second through fourth flights were all match-play format.

The winner of the Second Flight was Brad Mullins and Chad Davis was runner-up. The consolation winner was Brian Beckham and Brad King was the runner up.

The Third Flight winner was Brad Broaddus with Adam Sowder the runner-up. Consolation winner was Brent Whitaker with Skip East the runner-up.

The Fourth Flight winner was Bruce Lainhart with Alex Holcomb the runner-up.  Consolation winner was Norman Howard with Gary Rice the runner-up.  

Congratulations, Derek, on a great win.

Prior to the start of play on Saturday there was the always exciting shootout on Friday evening. This is always followed by a motorized gallery rooting for their favorite players.

When the last shot was fired and the smoke cleared there was Jay Simmons standing tall. He picked up the golden egg.  

Second was Izzy Grayson and third was Philip Grayson.

The players were all treated to a delicious tenderloin dinner Saturday night prepared by 1200 MCC’s new Master Chef Brad Johnson.  

It was another fun tournament at the old Madison Country Club.

Thanks to chairman Hubert Broaddus, Cumberland Valley National Bank as sponsor and several wonderful volunteers that made this a success.

Hats off to you good people!
