JOHN HENRY SCORES VICTORY AT DURAN; ADAM WILSON SHOOTS 75 TO TOP A-FLIGHT


John Henry Wins By 1 at Duran

Hurricane season doesn't start for six more weeks, but you couldn't tell the Golfweek Amateur Tour members that on Saturday at Duran. Steady 30+ mph winds butteted players all day. It was tough out there. John Henry managed the best round in Championship Flight with a 76 from the 7000 yds+ back tees. It was a good score and it gave him a one shot victory over John Bessetgte. William Mann of the Atlanta Golfweek Tour and Chad Frank were tied for 3rd with 78's.

In Senior Championship Flight, it was Rob Kempinski who led the way. He posted a solid round of 73--the lowest score of the day in any flight. He cruised to a seven shot win over Bill Foster.

Adam Wilson posted arguably the next best round of the day when he went out in 35 and held on on the back nine for 40 and a nice score of 75 to win A Fight. Ryan Huisman was four strokes back at 79 as they were the only two to crack 80 in the flight. After an opening 44 on the front nine, Dennis Cargo rallied to shoot even par 36 on the back for 80 and third place. Tom Dillon was next with 82.

The Senior A flight needed extra holes for Ed Paterniti to top David Parker. Both shot 83. Paterniti won on the first extra hole.

Jim Kenney bounced back from an off day at the last tournament and captured the B Flight by shooting a nice 85. It was two better than Chet Rakowski (87). Veteran Rick Whitman and first year member Zack Mihalik tied for 3rd after shooting 88's. Chace Petersen rounded out the top five with 89.

Chet Rakowski's 87 was good enough to take top honors in Senior B Flight. Chet Parker beat Rick Whitman in a scorecard playoff for second place. Both shot 88.

C Flight continues to provide some of the best competition on tour week in and week out. At Duran play was dominated by first year players. Don Welch, playing in his first event, managed to break 90 as he put up an 88 to take top honors. Three strokes back on 91 was Chris Koubeck. Rob Lattig and Enrique Saez tied for third on 92. This is the first year on tour for Chris, Rob & Enrique.

Lawrence Blunk continued to dominate D flight by finishing with a 93 and taking a six stroke win over Mark Watson and Dan Salik. Still, the biggest news out of D flight might have come from Joshua Johnson. He was the winner of the 50/50 drawing to benefit the Eric Baker Fund. His "50" was $190. Without hesitation, after Stephanie gave him the money, he turned to me and said "I'd like to put it all back in for Eric." The first two winners have given back over $100 of their winnings too, but Josh is the first to put it all back in! The tour and the Baker family say Thank You!

The next two events are on consecutive weeks, April 28 at Harmony Golf Preserve and May 5 at Southern Dunes.
