Rowe and Leiss come out on top at Black Horse
Eddie Rowe and David Leiss prevailed in their respective divisions on a difficult Black Horse North golf course. Leiss had the only under par round of the weekend with his Saturday 71. He birdied the 36th hole for a total of 146 to edge Mike Burke and take the Senior Division title. Rowe and Padden Nelson required extra holes to crown a champion in the Mid-Am Division. Rowe found the center of the fairway and hit his approach to 6 ft while Nelson's drive ended up in one of the ridiculously difficult fairway bunkers at Black Horse and that turned out to be the difference. Black Horse played very difficult over the weekend as the greens and bunkers were not very forgiving. This tournament wraps up the regular season events for 2015. The top 24 Mid-Ams and the top 16 Seniors will receive invitations to the 2015 season Championship played at Champions GC in November. Any players declining the invitation for the final will open up further spots in each division that will be handled in the order based on the final points standings. We will go down the list until the 24 Mid-Am spots and the 16 Senior Am spots are taken. We look forward to finishing the season at Champions in November.
