Capping several days of celebration of their 100th anniversary, the Perry Golf and Country Club held the third annual Memorial Tournament Sunday. Honored during the tourney were the late Lois Worrell and the late Ron Reitz.
The field was divided into three flights and a Championship Flight, which required an 18-hole score of 77 or better to enter. Those making the cut then played an additional nine holes, with the 27-hole combined total generating the overall champion.
Nick Luett defended his title with a 69-37–106 to finish at two-under par. Damon McLeod was a stroke back with a one-under 71-36–107. Aaron Ahrendsen was third with an even-par 71-37–108, with Tim McKnight fourth on a card of 73-36–109.
Ties among the scores in the first three flights were broken by using scores on the handicap holes. The toughest handicap hole was consulted first, and, if a tie remained, holes were check in descending order of handicap toughness until the tie was snapped.
Four players tied for First Flight honors, with the order determined as above. Winning was John Chiodo, with Phil Joselyn second, Don Stracke third and Dr. Randy McCaulley fourth after all entered the clubhouse with scores of 78.
Four rounds of 82 created a logjam at the top of the Second Flight, with the tiebreaker instituted yet again. Nick Chiodo, Frank Chiodo, Larry Hill and Dan Vollstedt were the top four finishers in the flight.
Tom Gries won the Third Flight with an 88, with Tom Tillinghast topping Bob Gilroy for second place after both shot rounds of 89. Fourth place went to Dave Iben’s card of 92.
