Mason, Nigh Win Stableford SLAT at Canyon Farms

The Stateline Amateur Tour at Canyon Farms Golf Club was held Monday, October 2. This event was different than other Stateline Tour events in that this was a Stableford format, where players earned points for the scores they made on each hole. The goal of Stableford is to accumulate as many points as possible.  (Scoring breakdown: Eagles—8 points, Birdies—4 points, Par—2 points, Bogey—1 point, and Double Bogey or worse received zero points.) Double bogey was the maximum score that a player could take on any hole.

In the Legends division, Brad Robinson took first place with 39 total points. His round included two birdies and an eagle. Doug Wilson and Ron Brewer both tied for second place with 34 points.

Ritch Nigh took home the victory in the Players division scoring 35 points on the day. Nigh birdied three consecutive holes in a row (8,9,10) and eagled the par five, 14th. Greg Hillman finished in second with 32 points and Matt Helm rounded out third with 31 points.

In the Senior division, Raymond Vaglia and John Scarsella both tied for first place with 34 points. David Hamilton finished in third place with 30 points.

Jeff Mason barely escaped with the victory in the Open division. Mason’s round was very steady, scoring at least one point on every hole. He made 13 pars, one birdie, and four bogeys, on route to a three-over, 74. Craig Broswick finished in second place with 33 points. Billy Mandina secured third place with 32 points.

The Stateline Amateur Tour Championship is scheduled for Thursday, October 5, at The Golf Club at Shadow Glen.
