41 players from 6 different chapters converged in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains at the Sevierville Club on Saturday. There were several close division races including a playoff in Division 1.
Div 1- Shawn Reese found himself with a 5 shot lead through 10 holes but tour vet, Tim Saunders was not ready to throw in the towel. Saunders managed to play the final 7 holes 2 under and when Reese faltered coming down the stretch, the 2 players were tied after regulation. It only took 1 hole of sudden death as Saunders found the penalty area off the tee and Reese took home the victory for his first of the year.
