2014 7 Cedars Senior Washington Open
The Cedars at Dungeness
SOVAY WINS 7 CEDARS SENIOR WASHINGTON OPEN
Tom Sovay of The Golf Club at Redmond Ridge rode opening rounds of 65 and 67 to a 5 stroke lead, then held on with a final round 1-under par 71 to fend off hard charging Tacoma Firs professional Todd Erwin by 3 strokes and capture the 15th annual 7 Cedars Senior Washington Open Championship. Erwin began the round 10 stokes back but fired a tournament best 64 to grab the second spot. Jeff Fought of Black Butte Ranch shot consistent rounds of 69 each day to finish alone in 3rd place at 207. Tom Brandes of Rainier G&CC and Mike Kloenne of Columbia Edgewater CC tied for fourth place and low amateur at 208. It was Brandes’ 6th low amateur finish in the tournament, one of which was also the overall championship. Seven-time defending champion Jeff Coston opted out of the tournament after he made the field for The Principal Charity Classic on the Champions Tour this week.
Sovay’s team of Kevin Burnett of Mill Creek CC, Rich Fong of Aldarra GC and Tony Conti of Harbour Pointe GC won the team championship with a 37-under par 251 for two day competition. Bruce Stewart of Arrowhead GC and his team of Brandes, Tom Phillips of Seattle GC and Alex Stamey of Everett G&CC came in second at 256.
Thanks go out to Bill Shea and his staff at the Cedars at Dungeness and Jerry Allen and the 7 Cedars Casino Resort for hosting and sponsoring the event for the eighth straight year; and to Tony Weiderkehr and Aeromech Inc. for their presenting sponsorship.
Matt Epstein of Everett G&CC fired a 3-under 69 to win the top seed in the 2014 WWC PGA Match Play Championship bracket. Only 5 players broke par on the challenging White Horse layout under sunny and firm conditions.
On the senior side, Doug Doxsie and Mike Givens each shot 70 to land the #1 & #2 seedings respectively. Conditions weren’t quite as nice for the seniors, with cold, windy and wet conditions making the The Golf Course at Hawks Prairie Links Course very challenging.
We welcome Cindi Grove and Andy Lowrey of Nike Golf as the new presenting sponsors and thank them for their support! Thanks go out to White Horse GC and Bruce Christy and the Golf Course at Hawks Prairie and Kevin Myers for hosting the events.
