Last year Monty Ort, an Edwardsburg graduate, defeated Doug Freeman to capture the Championship Flight.
In the A Flight, 36-holes were not enough to crown a winner as Josh Townsley and Jacob Van Dyke finished the tournament knotted at 163 strokes apiece; which led to a sudden-death playoff between the two. Townsley emerged with a 5 and 7 victory in the playoff and a division title.
Niles’ Dick Noble became the oldest man, at 85, to ever win a flight in the tournament. He won the Seniors Flight with a score of 180.
Jim Conrad won the B Flight finishing the day at 172, while Rick Kidwell won the C Flight with a score of 179. Terry Churchill won the Super Seniors Flight recording a 160 for the tournament.
