(Daniels, WV) – It was a second straight day of picture perfect weather for all 102 teams in the 2016 West Virginia Parent-Child Championship which was held at The Resort at Glade Springs on both the Stonehaven and Cobb courses. After the completion of Saturday’s opening round players were divided into 5 separate flights in the Amateur Division while the remaining Mother-Child, Professional, and Extended Family divisions remained the same.
Finding themselves one shot back of the round one leaders, Alan and Lon Cooke, heading into today was the team of Davey and David Jude who competed on the Cobb course in round 2. The Jude’s found success early and often as they carded three birdies in their first five holes. Back to back birdies on the 8th and 9th placed them in a tie with the Cooke’s heading to the closing nine. The hot streak continued as the Jude’s birdies three of their first four to start the back. A final closing birdie on the par-5 eighteenth was all that was needed to claim a one shot victory over Alan and Lon Cooke with a tournament total of nineteen under-par, 125. In third was the team of Larry and Brad Tweel who posted a tournament total of 129. Last year’s Champions, Doug and Chris Williams, placed in a tie for fourth with the Rosiek’s at 130.
