Witherspoon, P. Durham Take Junior Titles
Consistent play in the second round carried first-day leader Rob Witherspoon to a six-stroke victory in the Richmond Golf Association Junior Championship.
Keefer Cruises to Amateur Title
Ben Keefer won the first four holes in the Richmond Golf Association Men’s Amateur Championship finale and went on to defeat Griffin Clark 2 and 1 on a misty Sunday morning that lengthened an already long Huguenot-Monacan layout at Salisbury Country Club.
Roday Par-Lays Victory
Leon Roday used a Faldo-esque round of 18 consecutive pars to overtake four time champion Tim Kelley and win this year's RGA Senior Championship.
Keefer/Jeremiah Continue Reign
Ben Keefer and Rich Jeremiah shot a four-under-par 68 to successfully defend their title at this year's Nelson Broach Memorial at The Federal Club.
RGA Player of the Year
This is an idea that has been kicked around for years by numerous RGA Boards. This is the year we implement it.
We have decided to award Player of the Year in Regular and Senior catagories. Points will not cross categories. In addition to the normal RGA events, we have added the Lakeside Invitational as a points event, and will also award points for Senior and Regular club champions at RGA clubs.
We have added a new event to the schedule this year, the Tournament of Champions, comprised of RGA club champions and RGA event champions. These will count in the points race as well. This event will be held at The Foundry on August 23rd.
