After a rainy morning at Edgewood Country Club, the West Virginia Golf Association (WVGA) FLIGHT by Yuengling Amateur Series saw some beautiful weather and amazing shots today from the field of 51 players.
The day was full of excitement for two particular players. Jared Taylor of Bluefield scored an albatross (three under par on a single hole) on the par five fifth hole. He was followed shortly by Jason Wilkinson of Dunbar, who scored a hole-in-one on the sixth hole.
The Championship Division was won by Davey Jude of Kermit after shooting a two under par 69, to outpace Cam Roam of Huntington and Mason Weese of Charleston by one stroke. The Men’s Gross Division was topped by Josh Howell of Charlton Heights who scored five birdies and one eagle on his way to a four under par 67, while Justin Keaton of Charleston led the Men’s Net Division with an eight under par 63, thanks to seven birdies and two eagles.
In a battle of the women from Daniels, Karen Rainey had the low round of the day in the Women’s Gross division with a six over par 77. She also took top honors in the Women’s Net Division with a two over par 73, besting Janice Allen by two strokes.
“I haven’t had a day with this much excitement as far as miraculous shots being made, what seemed like one after another! The whole field was buzzing after hearing the cheers,” said WVGA Tournament Manager Chance Hindbaugh. “Thanks to PGA Pro Craig Berner and all of the staff at Edgewood for being gracious hosts to the WV FLIGHT by Yuengling Amateur Series today.”
The FLIGHT by Yuengling Amateur Series is open to anyone, male or female, of any skill level. Awards are given in several flights based on net and gross scores.
