Mozingo Lake Golf Course Tournament Results
The course couldn’t have been in better condition for our Midwest Regional Championship 2 day event at Mozingo Lakes Golf course. The greens were true and fast, the fairways lush, and the rough thick was playable. And with 11 holes on the water, the views are always top notch as well! Scoring was tough with the amount of undulation and speed in the greens, but some players managed to figure it out!
Kory Glasgow took an early lead on day 1, going 1 under through 10 holes, while Garrett Wilson looked to be hot on his tail at only 1 over through 12 holes. Garrett found some trouble off the tee and on the greens coming down the stretch while Kory kept things clean and neat, carding a 2 over par 74. On day 2, with such a big lead, Kory didn’t need to push for birdies and forced the field to go low to try and chase him down. Garrett Wilson managed to match Kory’s day 1 score of 74, but still fell 3 shots short of Kory’s 2 day total of +9. This is Kory’s second win in a row, and he’s quickly becoming the guy to beat in D1 in KC.
Rob Spriggel looked to be in control in D2, being only 1 over par through 14 holes. Struggles to close out day 1 saw him shoot a 6 over 78, matching Brian Vance. But Adam Augustine was the club house leader, with great iron play, he shot a first day total of 77 and had the lead by one. Day 2 was a scoreboard showdown between the 3 players, trading holes one by one as the day went on. Brian and Rob shot 77, while Adam shot 78, leaving us with a 3 way tie at 11 over total. Rob was knocked out of the playoff on the 2nd hole, but it took 5 holes to decide the winner. When Adam found the bunker, Brian went for the center of the green on a tough tucked pin that asked for disaster. A 2 putt par secured the win for Brian.
After day 1, Chad Beavers and John Lusker looked to be the players to be beat in D3 going into day 2. Chad carded an impressive 79 to John’s 80, giving them a comfortable lead over the field, and looked like a 2 man showdown on day 2. But Peter Alepra, another Iowa player, fought hard in the windier day 2 conditions and made a big move, shooting his own 79, but it wasn’t enough to catch Chad who shot 83 on day 2, for a total over 18 over par to Peter’s 20 over par, while Lusker fell off on day 2 and finished at 23 over.
Division 4 looked like it was destined for a playoff between David Szczucinski and Zach Terry, both previous D5 players who’s improved play has seen them moved to D4, and they are showing off why. Zach managed to pull off the rare turkey leg, making consecutive birdies on holes 12, 13 and 14, and getting himself tied with David with one hole to play. An untimely double bogey on his final hole, while David finished strong, saw David taking home his first D4 victory.
Robert Rosenbaum was only one shot ahead of Rocky Metcalfe after day 1, with 3 more players within 4 strokes. With the windier conditions on day 2, anything could happen. But Rob kept the pedal down, and improved his day 2 score by 6 strokes thanks to a putter that caught fire, while Rocky’s putter went ice cold. Robert handily secured the victory for another win in 2022!
