Closing the two day Super Seniors Tournament with a score of 77, Art Wieda shot a combined two day total of 152 for a five stroke win over second place gross score finisher Warren Stephens. Art was recognized for his excellent play at the tournament Awards Dinner on February 4 and will have his name engraved on the SMGA Super Seniors Champions plaque that hangs on the wall outside the SaddleBrooke One Pro Shop.
The tournament is a two day stroke play event for players who are 70 or older or who will be 70 years old during the year. The Champion Flight is scored with both gross and net scores while all other flights are net scores only. The Super Seniors Champion is awarded to the player with the lowest overall gross score. There were six flights with 76 super seniors playing in this year’s tournament.
In addition to Art who won the overall Championship with the lowest gross score, there were net winners in all flights. Flight participants were paid down to four places.
In Flight 1, low net winner was Dennis McCabe with a total net score of 137. In Flight 2, low net went to Ken Enders and Len Kirklin who tied at 139. In Flight 3, low net winner was Stuart Scott with a 138. Flight 4 was taken by Carl Travor with a score of 129. Flight 5 also resulted in a tie for low net between Dick Mochel and Hod Wells with scores of 134. Winner of Flight 6 was Jim Friedrich with a net score total of 134.
It is a testament to the nature of SaddleBrooke with its focus on being an active community that we have as many super senior golfers who enjoy competing in this annual tournament and who can still play a pretty mean game of golf. Congratulations to all the Super Senior Tournament participants.
