Kupniewski Captures Amateur Championship
Chris Kupniewski sweeps the summer “majors” as the Mecryhurst University senior took home top honors at the 2016 Erie Sport Store Amateur Championship. His final round matched his tournament total as Kupniewski posted the only sub-par cumulative score of the tournament, three under par. Playing with a hot putter, Kupniewski birdied both par threes on the back nine enroute to a 3 shot victory over familiar foe Mike Garcia. Garcia tied former Meadville standout and East Tennessee State University freshman to be Zach Ford who shared the lead with Kupniewski as late as the 14th hole. Both Garcia and Ford finished the tournament at even par. Mike Newcomer was one behind and the leader coming into Sunday, Cory Smith, finished the tournament at +2, good for a fourth place finish, tying with Penn State Behrend’s Shawn Sculley.
The final prize pool for the tournament is being determined with merchandise credit available at the Lawrence Park pro shop by Wednesday. All players who played Sunday will receive some amount of merchandise credit.
