Brosig, Nichols & Worley claim Jr. Match Play Titles

Posted: July 27th, 2018

There was some great golf played at Beechwood by the juniors of the Erie area. Mercyhurst bound Dave Nichols claimed the Championship flight title over two time defending champ, and future Mercyhurst teammate, Ryan Peters. It sure wasn’t easy for Nichols to get to the finals with Evan Rowane taking him 22 holes in the semi-final match before bowing out. Peters didn’t have a much easier time in his semi-final with the scrappy Zach Henry taking him to the 18th hole with Peters winning 1 up.

In the final, Nichols was stellar, shooting 3 under par thru 16 holes in the finals match conquering the two time champ Peters 4 & 2. Congratulation to David Nichols who not only won the Championship Flight but was also the medalist in the qualifier shooting even par 72.

In the young ladies division, finalist Natalie Brosig and Anna Swan advanced to the final match by winning their semi matches by the same score of 5 & 4 over Kym Henry and Maddie Klinger. Multisport standout, Tara Thomas took her quarter final match with Kymmy Henry to the 18th hole before bowing out just 1 down. The lead switched back and forth a couple times in the finals with the determined and eventual champ Brosig sinking a crucial 4 foot putt on the 18th hole winning the championship match 1 up. This is Natalie’s 2nd Match Play Title, winning the title in 2016.

The Boy’s B flight also had its moments of excitement. It took 21 holes for Joe Fugagli to advance to the quarter finals over Phillip Pedano. And Penn State main campus bound Greg Westfall made a birdie 2 on the 19th hole to advance over Akron bound Andrew Wagner. This win would allow Westfall to meet his younger brother Kyle in a quarter final match where the lead would bounce back and forth with Greg being victorious 3 & 2. Ft. Leboeuf senior Anthony Worley advanced to the finals by defeating Westfall 3&2 and Prep senior David Estes advanced to the final match with the same 3 & 2 total over John Pulice. Worley was 5 up after 12 in the final match but the competitive Estes won holes 13 & 15 and was mounting a comeback. Worley was able to hold off the charging Estes and tie hole 16 to win the match 3 & 2.

The Junior regular season comes to a close Monday July 30th as the final Tour event gets underway at The Country Club of Meadville. The top points accumulators then will advance to The Kahkwa Club for the Tour Championship on Tuesday August 7th. Current junior tour standings will be posted later today.
