Akron District Golf AssociationIt was a tight race in both the Championship and Senior Divisions for the 2016 Akron District Golf Association’s Players of the Year.

In the Championship Division, the Ungvary Cup goes to Mike Simpson (photo above), who came out on top after a strong showing at the Golfer of the Year Tournament at Shady Hollow Country Club in Massillon.

Simpson passed Howard Clendenin for the top spot after after the GOY, as Howard had a previous commitment and could not compete at the event.

The 2016 ADGA Player of the Year title marks the third time Simpson has put his name on the Ungvary trophy, also winning in 2010 and 2012.

2015 Player of the Year Aaron Crewse finished in third place on the year, while GOY champ Brian Smith took fourth place.

Ron Bell 2016 ADGA Senior Player of the Year

In the Senior Division, Ron Bell (shown above) leap-frogged Jim Cea and Fred Miller with his play at Shady Hollow to earn the Barnes Cup as the ADGA Senior Player of the Year crown.

Bell nabbed the top spot on the season after finishing in a tie for first at the GOY, eventually giving way to Larry Lahnan in a playoff.

Bell earned his first ADGA Player of the Year cup.

Lahnan’s victory at the GOY left him in second place for the year, after starting the event in 7th place on the points list. Fred Miller grabbed third place on the Senior season.

Congratulations to Mike Simpson and Ron Bell!
