Bennink Blazes 67, Captures EDGA in Playoff

Posted: August 15th, 2021

Gannon’s Connor Bennink shot a wonderful round of 5 under par 67 in Sunday’s final round of the 101st EDGA Amateur Championship sponsored by Marquette Savings Bank. Bennink started the round 7 strokes behind the second round leader, Ryan Deimel.

He opened with a 2 birdie, 2 bogey nine of 36 and then came home in 31, with birdies on 10, 11, 13, 15, and 17. His putt on 18 for 66 would have been the eventual winner but lipped out. Bennink finished at 2-over 218. On the first playoff hole Bennink made par leaving Alex Weir with a 3 footer to extend the playoff, but Weir missed left and Bennink was the champion.

Alex Weir, who was the runner up in the EDGA’s other major (the Match Play) added a second runner up finish after losing in a playoff to Bennink. Weir started slow and was seemingly out of it after a double bogey on 8 leaving him at +6 and 4 behind. But he birdied 9 and offset bogies on 10 and 15 with birdies on 11 and 13 before closing with birdies on 16, 17, and 18 to match the clubhouse lead.

Mike Wolfe was at or near the top of the leaderboard all afternoon, needing only a par on the finishing hole to join the playoff. His second at 18 went over the back and he was unable to save par, finishing one stroke back with 72-219.

First and Second round leader, Ryan Deimel fell out of the lead for the first time after following a bogey on 3 with a double on 4. He then traded birdies on 6 and 9 with bogies on 5 and 8 to remain in the hunt. A double on 13 and a bogey on 15 ended his title hopes for all intents and purposes, but did bounce back with birdies on 16 and 17 and closed with 76, good for a tie for 4th. He tied with two players that started the round 8 back, both shot 68. Mike Garcia used an eagle on 6 to fuel his 34-34-68 while Isaiah Swan eagled the par 4 16th, and surrounded that with birdies on 13, 14 and 17 for his 68.

With Deimel’s early struggles, Dave Spitzer moved into the lead with a birdie on 6. He exchanged a bogey on 9 with a birdie on 10 and continued to hold the lead until he made bogey on 16. He added two more bogies on the finishing holes and shot 74 and finished tied for 7 with Drew Deimel. Deimel had his best round of the event with 3 birdies offset by 2 bogies for 71.

Mark Majewski also shot 71 for a 222 3-round total. He was tied with Breckin Taylor who closed with 76-222 to complete the top 10.

The top 16 won prizes and they can be redeemed in the pro shop at Lake View.

Bob Paris captures 3rd EDGA Seniors

Posted: July 6th, 2021

Bob Paris has been gone from Lake Shore Country Club for quite some time but he still finds the Fairview layout to his liking. Paris captured his 3rd JC Martin Seniors title today with a round of even par 72. Paris won his first Seniors in 2004 when he first became an eligible senior.

In 2011 he captured his second title which was hosted by Lake Shore. When the seniors was last hosted by Lake Shore, in 2016, Paris finished 2nd.

David Hewett, the 2-time defending champion finished tied for second with RC Chase and Mark Noce with 74. With a net score of 67 Mark Noce was the overall net champion for the event.

In the 50-59 age group, RC Chase captured low gross with 74, Rob Nicotra, in his first seniors, finished second with 76 and Dave Irwin and Tim Weyand tied for 3rd with 79’s. On the net side Scott Simonsen and Garrett Taylor tied for first with 72 and Chris Keim finished 3rd with 73.

In the 60-69 age group, David Hewett was the winner with 74, followed by Chris Downey with 77 and Ellery Tarbell and Mike Capotis tied for 3rd with 78. John Adiutori and James Bowen tied for low net with 71’s and Chip Shamburg and Homer Capotis tied for 3rd with 72’s.

Dave Lehner won low gross in the Super Senior division (70 and over) with a one-over par 73 while Jim Delsandro and Chuck Faulkner tied for low net with 71’s.

All of the above winners have pro shop credits in the Lake Shore CC Pro Shop.

A rare feat was accomplished during the round by RC Chase as, after getting off to an awful start he turned his day around by recording eagles on both the par 4 7th and par 5 8th holes.

The next Senior event is the Streeter Cup, which is a 2-man Team competition using the Chapman Format. That event is on August 2nd at The Kahkwa Club. There will be a Super Seniors division this year. Both players must be 65 or older to compete in the Super Seniors division. There is also a Senior Match Play event at Whispering Woods GC this year. That event will be in September with the dates and format yet to be decided.
