WHISPER ROCK NATIONAL INVITATIONAL- FINAL RESULTS

As usual the event was first class, with perfect weather, and just simply a bunch of great people from the participants to the esteemed staff at the “Rock”. I have never seen such amazing service anywhere in the world, and Gregg Tryhus should be congratulated for creating perhaps the best “hang” in golf. Below you’ll see stats on easiest and hardest holes on each course, I think a better stat would be the average weight gain per player over the four days. We all were treated to some amazing food, and superb playing conditions. It’s no wonder everyone in the country wants an invite into this event.

My woes continue, as I was a bit overambitious in trying to play in back to back tournaments with the Whisper Rock National ending on Wednesday in Scottsdale, and the Coleman at Seminole in Juno Beach Florida, starting on Thursday. But in my defense it would be hard to miss either of these quality events. The course set up a Whisper Rock was tremendous , and provided a stiff challenge for all.

STAY TUNED FOR FINAL RESULTS AND COMMENTS FROM THE COLEMAN AT SEMINOLE

MID-AM DIVISION:

 

Barry Dyche (Charlotte, NC) and Jason Pool (Dunn Loring, VA) began the final round in a tie with Kane Hanson (West Fargo, ND) and Dave Kelly (Scottsdale, AZ) at 12-under par.  Hanson/Kelly got off to a good start and took the early lead at 13-under with a birdie on No. 3.  But bogeys on Nos. 5 and 7 dropped them back into a tie with Dyche/Pool at 11-under.  The two teams remained tied until Dyche/Pool made birdie on No. 11.  Dyche/Pool added another birdie on No. 13 to extend the lead to two shots and made par on the last five holes to finish at 13-under to win by four.  Three teams tied for second place at 9-under – Hanson/Kelly; defending champions Joe Bendetti (Austin, TX) and Jim Strickland (Scottsdale, AZ); and Chance Holmes (Phoenix, AZ) and Eddie Sanchez (San Antonio, TX).  Holmes/Sanchez and Bendetti/Strickland were paired together and made a run with by far the best rounds of the day (65 and 66 respectively), but they started too far back and ran out of holes.

 

FINAL ROUND MID-AM STATS – LOWER COURSE (7,229 yards):

 

·         Final Round Scoring Average:          72.8

·         Front 9 Scoring Average:                  36.4

·         Back 9 Scoring Average:                   36.4

·         Hardest Holes:            (1) No. 7 – 3.33 (no birdies); (2) No. 16 – 4.29; (3) No. 1 – 4.25 (no birdies); (T4) No. 14 – 4.21; (T4) No. 15 – 4.21; (T4) No. 12 – 3.21 (no birdies); (T4) No. 2 – 3.21.

SENIOR DIVISION:

 

Mike Kloenne (West Linn, OR) and Brian Little (Portland, OR) began the final round in a tie with Jim Lehman (Minnetonka, MN) and Mike Rowley (San Luis Obispo, CA) at 7-under par.  Eleven other teams started the day within three shots of the lead.  Defending champions Jerry Hudgins (Tyler, TX) and Mike Rice (Houston, TX) took the early lead at 8-under after birdies on Nos. 2 and 4.  But bogeys on Nos. 5, 6, and 7 derailed their charge.  Kloenne/Little bogeyed No. 2, but rattled off birdies on Nos. 3, 4, and 6 to establish a three-shot lead at 9-under.  Just when it looked like they were going to run away with it, Eddie Lyons (Shreveport, LA) and Billy McBee (Dallas, TX) made an eagle on No. 11 and a birdie on No. 13 to tie Kloenne/Little for the lead.  But, bogeys on Nos. 15, 16, and 17 would end their hopes.  Overnight co-leaders Lehman/Rowley would mount a challenge of their own.  After a poor start that saw them three-over through their first eight holes, Lehman/Rowley birdied Nos. 9, 11, and 13 to get back into contention.  When Kloenne/Little made bogey on No. 14, the lead was reduced to two and the momentum was seemingly with the chasers.  The defining moment of the tournament occurred on No. 15 when Kloenne/Little chipped in for birdie from a difficult lie behind the green, returning the team to 10-under.  Three straight pars would be enough for Kloenne/Little to secure the title by two shots over Hudgins/Rice (who birdied three of their last six) and Lehman/Rowley (who birdied the last).
