Dave Davis Wins North Senior Amateur
Dave Davis Come from behind to take North Senior Amateur Title. Gary Kirwan captures Super Senior Flight by one.
Argyle, TX – Dave Davis used a two-over-par, 73 to help take the title of the North Senior Amateur Champion by one over Lee Sandlin, Mike Peck and Lewis Stephenson. In the Super Senior Flight, Gary Kirwan’s one-under-par round leads him to victory by one over Denny Alexander.
Dave Davis, Saginaw, began his round three shots off the lead and found himself only one back after the first hole. Playing with Lee Sandlin, Dallas, in the final group of the day in the Senior Flight, Davis bogeyed his opening hole. However, Sandlin couldn’t record anything better than a triple-bogey. The deficit was two for all of two holes when Sandlin birdied the 408 yard, par-four second and the 185 yard, par-three third.
Davis unfortunately saw himself make three straight bogeys right after as well to increase Sandlin’s lead. A double-bogey eighth hole didn’t derail him too much when he answered with back to back birdies on the 505 yard, par-five ninth and the 401 yard, par-four tenth. Sandlin however couldn’t match his momentum, when he recorded four straight bogeys on holes 10-13, a stretch the he dominated in the first round. After 13 holes, Sandlin’s lead was down to just one shot.
Sandlin extended the lead right away on the 14th with a birdie only to be answered by a birdie on the 15th by Davis which was matched again by Sandlin with a birdie on the 160 yard, par-three 16th. With the one shot lead with two holes to play, Sandlin need to play mistake free golf and hopefully add a birdie along the way. All momentum was Davis’ though, when he reached the 543 yard, par-five 17th in two and drained an eagle putt on top of Sandlin’s bogey.
Despite bogeying the 18th hole, Dave Davis snuck out a one-shot victory over the field. Tying Sandlin in second were Mansfield’s Lewis Stephenson and Irving’s Mike Peck. For Davis, this was his first North Senior Amateur title.
In the Super Senior Flight, Gary Kirwan, McKinney, recorded the only under par round for all Super Seniors to edge out Denny Alexander of Fort Worth. Kirwan played in the group in front of Alexander and used two birdies to help secure the title. Alexander’s day featured three birdies but also five bogeys. Kirwan used the momentum gained in the Texas Super-Senior when he finished in a tie for second to propel him to his first North Super Senior Amateur title. Rounding out the top three was Dallas’ Corliss Nelson
The Texas Golf Association would like to thank the entire maintenance and professional staff of Denton Country Club. The course was in immaculate tournament condition where good play was awarded.
