Politano wins New England golf tourney
MIDDLEBURY — Ralph Myhre Golf Course’s Lucas Politano won the New England Junior PGA Championship on June 28 and 29 at the Shaker Hills Country Club in Harvard, Mass.
Politano, a Brandon resident and underclassman at Otter Valley Union High School, shot rounds of 71 and 75 on the par-72 course to prevail by a stroke against many golfers who are two or three years older.
He was the only Vermonter competing, and Politano’s victory made him eligible to head to the national Junior PGA Championship, to be held from Aug. 2 to 5 at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Chicago.
In regular Wednesday Evening Four Ball play on June 29 at Ralph Myhre, the team of Brady Fallon and Patrick Fallon earned the best gross score, while the duo of Mike Johnston and Steve Kayhart carded the second best gross result.
David Holbrook and Joe Forgues were the net score winners.
In the Lawson’s Points Pool standings Holbrook and Forgues are in the lead with 100 points, and Johnston and Kayhart are in second with 40.
In Thursday Afternoon Bill Davidson Men’s Golf on June 30, the trio of Tim Etchells, Steve Maier and Uwe Luksch prevailed. The threesomes of Donald Dayton, Ken Wakefield and Ken Roth, and Joe Bartlett, Mike Adams, and Larry Duffany were second and third, respectively.
On July 1 in the Friday Evening Mixer, the foursome of Carl Fogel, Adam Azia, Beau Cramer and James Walter came out on top, with Jim and Deb Hadeka, and Bob and Sheila Cameron the runners-up.
