Andy Baker Hits First Shot of 2012 Season

The 2012 Orlando Golfweek Amateur Tour opened with a bang! After a 45 minute fog delay in the morning, the day got off to an emotional start as players gathered to watch Andy Baker hit the first shot of the new season in memory of his son Eric. It was the start of a spectacular day. First year member Garrett Morrison topped the Championship flight field with a one over par 73. Tour veteran John Henry finished second with 74. Five time Player of the Year Chad Frank started his year with a 3rd place finish after shooting 75.

In A flilght Tom Dillon and Stacy Banach posted scores of 77. When no one could go lower, they headed back out for a playoff. Tom prevailed on the second extra hole. Tom's victory was highlighted by a hole in one on the 120 yard 15th hole. Mike Lombardo and Mark Farrow missed the playoff by a single shot, coming in with 78's.

Tom Dillon Scores Ace, Wins A flight in Playoff

The B flight also needed a playoff to decide a winner. Bill Robertson, returning after a year away from the tour, turned in a nice 82. Chace Petersen, playing in the first group of the day, was already in the clubhouse with his 82. Newcomer Terry McCabe posted an 82 while competing in the senior B flight. So, Bill headed back out for a "double" playoff as he would meet Chace for the regular B flight top spot and Terry for the senior B prize. It took just one hole as Bill topped both of them with a par on the first hole. Jim Kenney finshed third in B flight and Bob Molsick was third on the senior side.

The C flight is full of new faces this year and three of them rose to the top in the first event. Lorenzo Perez was the lone player to break 90 as he posted a nice 88. Dennis Frantz took second with 92, one stroke better than third place winner Enrique Saez.

In the D flight, Mark Cole of the Indiany-Western Ky tour led the way as he came in with 93. First player Mark Watson was second with 95 and Challenge Hole sponsor Lawrence Blunk shot 96 for thrid place.

In the other senior flights, Dennis Brady and John Ward tied with rounds of 76 in the senior Championship flight. Dennis won the playoff on the first hole. And in the senior A flight, Mike Lombardo took top honors after shooting 78. New member Michel Dion was next on 79.

Next event is on March 31 at Orange Lake Legends.
