Adams Pointe Golf Club Tournament Results
We had incredible weather and incredible course conditions, finally, for our Adams Pointe Championship. It was about 66 degrees, sunny, with a light breeze. The course was in great shape with just a slight bit of rain from Friday night. And with an 88 player field, there was bound to be some fireworks and good scores!
Division 1 was a banger! Larry Langley and Jacob Dittmer were chasing Garrett Wilson, who was just 1 over par after 14 holes. Back to back bogeys on 15 and 16 for Wilson gave Langley and Dittmer a glimmer of hope. Wilson made par on 17, but then an untimely water ball into the green side pond really made things interesting. Langley knew all he needed to do was find the green and 2 putt for the win, but his ball chased Wilson’s ball into the pond. Both players made great up and downs, while Dittmer made a solid par, which led to a 3 way playoff. All 3 players went back to hole 10 to tee it up, and Langley and Wilson made par while Dittmer had an unfortunate bogey and was out of the playoff. The playoff saw holes 11 and 12 tied, with Langley missing a couple of good opportunities to seal the deal. But on hole 13, with Wilson and Langley both in the left rough, Wilson stuck it to a foot for a tap in birdie to give him his first win of 2022.
Division 2 saw a newly promoted Brian Taylor really starting to find his form again. Brian was in control of the tournament from the start, with consistent golf, and even a nice chip in for birdie. Nearly hitting a hole in one on the par 3 4th hole, he also took home a closest to the pin win to match his great play shooting a 4 over par 76, taking the win over Kevin Stief by 4 strokes.
Division 3 needed all 18 holes to be decided! First timer Verl Seger, sporting his TaylorMade tattoo on his leg, put those clubs to work today! He was one of the first groups in D3 to finish, posting a really solid score of 9 over par in the clubhouse, leaving the rest of the pack to chase! John Lusker and David Lapin were right there with Verl, but still had a few holes to play. Lusker made an unfortunate bogey on 17 to put himself one back, with Lapin making a bogey on 16 to go one back. On the 18th, either Lusker or Lapin needed a birdie for a playoff, but Lusker just missed his birdie putt and Lapin made a bogey, giving Verl his first win on tour in his first start.
In Division 4, Todd Gurss threw down the gauntlet. Todd’s best round to date in tournament play has been an 84, and he was 1 under par through 11 holes!! Todd just recently started getting back into golf and is starting to find his swing. He’s made a habit of stumbling come down the straight in his previous events, and he leaked a little oil today but still finished with a 5 over par 77, 6 shots clear of the field. This will mean a promotion to D3 for Todd! Great job!
Division 5 was another solid win for Robert Rosenbaum. He was in the first group out in D5, and put down the score to beat but by the time he was in the clubhouse at 15 over par, the closest chaser was 2 holes back at 17 over par. Robert won over Patrick Emerson by 4 strokes. Despite his “whole body falling apart” as he likes to say, he still played some solid golf and got the job done!
