Good Luck to all the competitors!
from the short grass, really this time ;)  
We all need to protect ourselves form the harmful rays of the sun and the menacing bugs, but please help protect me when applying your sprays by avoiding standing on me when doing so.  My friends the Cart Paths, Parking Lots, even the Rough can handle it better than I.

I know I can be temperamental this time of year, but I can't cover up like you and boy is the sun hot.  

Gotta run, I need to get a haircut and hydrate to get ready for your visit today!  Play Well!

Ohio Amateur Champion Crowned at Moraine CC
From our Friends at the DDN

The chase for the 2019 Ohio Amateur golf championship came down to a dual between a 36-year-old former Ohio State golfer and a teenager who will soon become a member of the Buckeye squad.

It was the teenager, Maxwell Moldovan of Uniontown, who emerged with a one-stroke victory Friday over Scott Anderson at Moraine Country Club.

Moldovan, the son of a golf professional, matched Anderson’s 2-under-par 69 in the final round to win the tournament with a 7-under par total of 277. He had scores of 68, 73, 67 and 69 and made a hole-in-one on Moraine’s fifth hole on Thursday.

Anderson shot 69, 74, 66 and 69 for his 278 total.


Those in the field from our area who played all 72 holes where Kyle Schmidt (T3), Austin Sipe, Peter Samborsky & Tyler Goecke (T6), Luke Wells (T11), Caleb Westfall (T19), Josh Gilkison (T27), Frankie Morgan (T29) Dhaivat Pandya (T34) & Jordan Gilkison (T37) - Look for many of these great amateurs to play in next weeks Metropolitan Championship at Dayton CC.
