September morning

September 1, 2017

Where did the 2017 tournament season go? I blinked and it’s Sept. 1 already. All four GAP Majors in the books, the Junior schedule complete. Next on the horizon for the Communications team is the 47th Senior Amateur Championship, set for Sept. 5-6 at Lehigh Country Club.

It is the culmination of the Silver Cross Award race. In the Senior Division, Little Mill Country Club’s Joseph Roeder holds a two-point lead over Lancaster Country Club’s Kenneth Phillips and Tavistock Country Club’s Michael Tash. The Super-Senior Division tells a gridlock tale — Philadelphia Publinks GA’s Buck Jones, Whitemarsh Valley Country Club’s Frank Polizzi and Bellewood Country Club’s James Prendergast tied atop at 151. Lurking three strokes back is four-time reigning winner Don Donatoni.

Speaking of Donatoni, the White Manor Country Club member holds a substantial 312.5-point lead over Jones in the Player of the Year race. Both will tee off at Lehigh: Donatoni at 8:30 a.m., Jones at 8:40 a.m. on Day One.

In the Senior Division, LedgeRock Golf Club’s Chip Lutz is all but on his way to an unprecedented eighth straight title. He leads Roeder by a whopping 432.5 points. Wow.

Until Lehigh, enjoy Labor Day Weekend, folks.
