Bezek, Kelley, Kujawa, & Booth Medal in Lionsgate SLAT

Our third Stateline Tour Event of the season kicked off at the Nicklaus Club at Lionsgate on Tuesday, May 29th. Our four divisions battled through the humidity and late threat storms to claim their respective medalist.

In the Open division, only one golfer carded a score under par. Matt Kelley shot a one-under 71 on the day to earn his title as medalist. A great round of golf that included five birdies, ended with a couple missteps to bring Kelley in at one-under. Kelley took advantage of every par-5 on the day with a birdie on each. His play was enough to beat out the field by two strokes. Chris Beaubien and Gregory Diederich both came in at 73, (+1) to tie for second.

In the Senior division, Robert Booth edged out his opponents by one stroke with a two-under, 70. His round was highlighted by two birdies and an eagle on the Par-4, 13th. Steve Groom placed a close second after shooting a one-under, 71. Groom shot a fairly consistent round with three birdies and two bogeys. John Scarsella rounded out the top three with a carded round of 74, (+2).

In the gross division of the Player’s, Adam Kujawa shot the best round of the day by three with a 71 (-1). Kujawa’s round consisted of four birdies on the day with three bogeys. His birdie on the Par-4, 16th helped to cement his medalist title. Dale Nash claimed second place with a two-over, 74 and Steve Green closed the top three with a 75, (+3).

Dennis McCormack, with an incredible net score to par of 64 (-8), beat out the net division field by one. Adam Kujawa placed second with a net 65 (-7), and Jim Rich and Steve Green tied for third with a net score of 69 (-3).

For the Legend’s division, Bob Bezek won medalist with his two-over 74, beating out second place by two strokes over Pete Robbins. Bezek’s round was highlighted by two birdies, one on a Par-4 and the other on a Par-3. With Robbins in second with a four-over 76, a three way tie for third followed. Jim Seward, John Grant, and David Hornaday all carded an 80, (+8) for a third place tie.
