Crewse Caps Record Season with Playoff Win at Akron District’s Golfer of the Year


Akron District Golf Association

ADGA Director Tim Davis and 2009 Player of the Year Aaron Crewse

ADGA It came down to a playoff not only for the tournament, but for Golfer of the Year honors as well.

Aaron Crewse of Uniontown fired a 3-under par 68 on Sunday in the 2009 Infocision Golfer of the Year Tournament at Portage Country Club to go along with his first round 71 for a 139 total. That total put Crewse into a tie with first round leader Anthony Yacovazzi, who posted two solid rounds of 69-70.

Given the way the points broke down and the fact that both players had fantastic seasons, a sudden death playoff would determine not only the event winner, but who would be the Akron District Golf Association’s Player of the Year for 2009.

Pars halved the first three playoff holes. On the fourth hole, Crewse hit his second shot to 1-foot from the hole, seemingly ending the event. But Yacovazzi followed with a great second shot of his own to six feet. Yacovazzi hit a solid putt that spun out, and Crewse tapped in for the win.

Crewse compiled one of the best seasons ever in Akron District golf: wins at Summit County Amateur, the ADGA Individual Match Play Championship, the Golfer of Year Tournament — and in the process amassed the highest total ever of 1,325 points to win the Governors Cup. 2009 ADGA season results here.
