The day was Thursday April 15th when the Central Carolina Senior Amateur Golf Tour was welcomed to the Keith Hills Golf Club in Buies Creek to attempt to win their respective flights. These are their stories. 


The story in the Champ flight was Dean Parziale from Whispering Pines as he captured his first win of 2021 after a couple of close calls as he shot a three over par 75. After a sluggish start, Kevin McDougald of nearby Lillington, got it together to shoot even par 36 on the back nine and 77 total to finish in second place. Craig Sturdivant from Sanford took third posting 78, while Bruce Hier of Raleigh ended his day in fourth place with a score of 80. Dave LeVeque from Michigan carded 81 to round out the top five.


The story of the A flight was one word. Playoff!  Ron Hockensmith from Pinehurst and Wilson Shelton of Madison both shot identical scores of 38-40-78 so they returned to the course for sudden death. Hockensmith prevailed in the playoff for his first win of 2021. No less than five players occupied the T3 slot as all posted 79, one stroke outside the playoff. The five are Keith Thomas from Sanford, Ken Eichele of Sanford, Randy Bunn from Zebulon, Mike Greene of Fuquay Varina, and Todd Vick from Fayetteville.


The story in the B flight was most definitely Eddie Jaggers from Lillington. All Eddie did was card four birdies enroute to a 4 shot victory with a score of two over par 74. Hollis Peery of Fayetteville continued his excellent play as his 78 was good for second place. In third place it was Joe Carter of Pinehurst as he posted a score of 80. Gus Alford from Zebulon, Willie Boyd of Wake Forest, and Ed Washburn from Sanford all shot 81 for a T4 finish.


The story of the C flight today is also playoff just as in the A flight. Tour veterans Cliff Nance from Lumberton and Jim Prouty of Pittsboro shot identical scores of 39-44-83 which required a sudden death playoff. Nance prevailed in the playoff for a win in his first event of the 2021 season. Neil Bleau from Durham and die hard Hurricanes fan  held on to third place with a score of 85. Meanwhile Glenn Lewis from Zebulon returned to tour action and Gary Short of Sanford finished T4 as they each carded 86. Patrick Warren made the drive from Leland and shot a 44-44-88 for a sixth place finish. 


After a great tournament at Keith Hills, the Senior Tour moves to Mebane to challenge the great golf course of Mill Creek on Thursday April 29th. You don’t want to get left out of this event. Sign up today.









The Golf Club at Quail Ridge GC in Sanford was the host Club for the Senior Amateur Golf Tour event on Thursday April 1st. Cool temperatures and windy conditions did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the players with more than 60 competitors taking up the challenge.

In the Champ flight this day a playoff was required to determine a winner as Craig Sturdivant from Sanford and Steve Lassiter of Pinehurst ended regulation play knotted at three over par 75. Craig came out on top as Steve was unable to match par on the first playoff hole. Dean Parziale from Whispering Pines and John East of Rockingham finished one shot out of the playoff at T3 posting 76 apiece. Rounding out the top five Kevin McDougald came in with a 78.

The A flight saw Richard Johnson from the Eastern NC Tour use three birdies as he carded 79 to edge out five players all within two strokes. Two players a single shot back with scores of 80 closing at T2 were Mike Greene from Fuquay Varina and Ron Brady of McLeansville. Three scores of 81 were posted by James Demyan of  Aberdeen, Chuck Smith from Sanford, and Keith Thomas also from Sanford to round out the top six.

Not to be outdone by the Champ flight, the B flight needed more than 18 holes to declare a winner too. But this time three players, Jamie Branham from Kingston, Eddie Jaggers of Lillington, and Hollis Peery from Fayetteville were tied after regulation all with scores of 77. This playoff however required three holes before Branham was able to secure the win, and a promotion to the A flight. Congratulations Jamie. Ed Washburn of Sanford shot 79 in fourth place and consecutive top four finishes. Dave Baker from Greensboro posted 83 ending his day in fifth place.

Yet another playoff, this time in the C flight was required to find another winner. Wayne Ricks from Pinehurst and Ed McNally of Graham were deadlocked with scores of 86 after 18 holes so went back to the course for more golf. Wayne made a par on the first playoff hole, and despite a valiant effort by Ed, he was unable to equal that par. Marty Young from Pittsboro posted 87 to finish in third place and a third consecutive top five, while Jim Prouty also from Pittsboro carded 88 for fourth. Gives them something to talk about on the ride home. James Dockery from Southern Pines rounds out the top five with his score of 90. 

After a week off, the Senior Amateur Tour will return on Thursday April 15th, travelling to Lillington to take on the Keith Hills CC at Campbell University. If you have never played Keith Hills, you need to do yourself a favor and sign up. If you have played it, I know you will be back on the 15th.
