Palmer, Penn win North Senior Amateur in respective divisions

LANTANA, Texas (April 23, 2014) – Chuck Palmer and Gary Penn led
wire-to-wire in their respective divisions to win the 2014 North Senior Amateur
Championship presented by UST Mamiya at Lantana Golf Club. Palmer had a
tournament total of even-par 144 to win the Senior division by one shot. Penn
cruised to victory in the Super Senior division, winning by five shots.

Palmer carded a final-round 75 on the par-72 Lantana Golf
Club. He only had two birdies in the second round, and bogeyed NoÂ’s. 16 and 17
before needing a par on the final hole to win. He made par and won by one shot
over Dave Davis of Saginaw. DavisÂ’ even-par 72 final round was the low round of
the day in the Senior division. Mike Peck, Hollis Sullivan, and Charlie Garza
finished three shots behind Palmer in a tie for third place.

Penn, of Fort Worth, had two birdies on his back nine en
route to his 4-over-par 76. The windy conditions made the course play a little
tougher, but his 76 was enough to win by five shots over Doug Chandler of
Lufkin and Gary Kirwan of McKinney. Michael Hastings fired an even-par 72 final
round to card the low round of the day in the Super Senior division and
finished tied for fifth with Sandy Hammett.

The North Regional events will take a little break for the
summer before concluding with the North Amateur Championship August 8-10 at
WatterÂ’s Creek Golf Course in Allen. The TGA would like to thank Lantana Golf Club
and the North Regional eventsÂ’ sponsor, UST Mamiya for their hospitality and
support of amateur golf.
