Winghaven Country Club Golf Tournament Results

Last week, the Amateur Players Tour converged on the Jack Nicklaus designed WingHaven Country Club, with a sold out field of 160 players competing on one of St. Louis’ premier championship courses.  This would be the first combined event for both the open and senior tours, with seniors having the option to “double-dip” and play in both tournaments at the same time.

In Division 1, Blake Heimburger continued his hot start to the season, shooting a even-par 72 in tough conditions to earn his first victory of the 2022 season.  Memphis’ Ed McDugle made the drive up to win the Senior Division with a 74, and finish in 2nd place two shots ahead of Steve Hasenfratz, whose 76 was good enough for 3rd in the open division and 2nd in the senior division.  John Todd shot 77 to finish in 4th position.

Division 1 Results:

    1. Blake Heimburger E         72
    2. Ed McDugle +2       74
    3. Steve Hasenfratz +4       76

Senior Division 1 Results:

    1. Ed McDugle +2       74
    2. Steve Hasenfratz +4       76
    3. John Todd +5       77

In Division 2, Mike Hornak had the hot hand, shooting a blistering 2-over par 74 to earn a 2-shot victory over Billy Davis, who finished in 2nd with a 76.  Jake Buss took home 3rd place honors with a round of 77, while Chris Scoles and Mark Lamoureux tied for 4th with rounds of 78.  Hornak’s stellar round has earned him a promotion to Division 1 as his APT Tournament Index has fallen below the 3.5 threshhold.  Congrats on your great play Mike.

In the senior division, Billy Davis followed up his win at Tamarack Country Club with another win, shooting a 4-over par 76 to edge out Mark Lamoureux by two strokes.  Matthew Nemnich finished in 3rd position with an 81, while Darrell VankyGrifka finished in 4th with an 82.

In the Senior Division, Tim Koncki took advantage of the double-dip option with his 77 earning a 6-shot victory over Gary Hutchcraft and Richard Riemann, who finished with rounds of 83.  Steve Bates rounded out the top-4 with a round of 84.  Tim Koncki’s steady improvement over the last season has earned him a promotion to Division 2 as his index has moved to the Division 2 range.  Congratulations on your success Tim and keep up the good work!

In Division 4, Rick Johnson and Rick Povis battled back and forth all day for the Division 4 and Senior Division 4 crowns.  In the end, Johnson would prevail for his first win since the APT Winter Fourball at Orange County National Golf Center, shooting an 88 to edge Povis by a shot, who finished with an 89.  Paul Spotanski followed up his win 2 weeks ago at Pevely Farms with a 3rd place finish with a round of 92, tying Dallas Cook.

On the senior side, Rick Johnson would finish tied for the lead with Bill Abanathie, leading to a sudden-death playoff at the end of the day.  On the first playoff hole, Johnson was able to make a par to secure the victory.  Rick Povis finished in 3rd place, while Greg Cobourn rounded out the top 4 with a solid round of 90.

There were no division skins won for Division 4, so the skins pot ($210) will carry over to the next double-dip event at Lake Forest Country Club on Monday, May 23rd.

On the senior side, Jerry Miller was able to use the double-dip to his advantage, finishing one-shot ahead of Albert Orelt, Robert Rosenbaum, and Chris Brockmeyer, who followed up their 2nd place finish in the open division with a 2nd place finish in the senior division.
