Beal, Hedrick Tie 2008 ADGA Open


Akron District Golf Association

ADGAOn a cool and drizzly day, Joe Hedrick of Barberton and Ross Beal of Uniontown each shot even-par 72 to tie for the victory in the ADGA Open stroke play event at Raintree Country Club on Sunday.

Hedrick played a steady round of 36-36, while Beal made a nice comeback on the final nine with a 2-under par 34. The pair nipped Tony Serra, Jim Cea and Chris Okeson by a shot.

The win is Beal’s second of the ADGA season, and Hedrick’s first. But Hedrick has been on a roll, as he won last week’s Turkeyfoot club championship by five shots.

Hedrick, who also won the Senior Division by two shots, would have won the event outright except for a missed tap-in from about 6 inches while trying to reach over a player’s line. (Ah, golf.)

An announcement on the date of the ADGA Golfer of the Year will be made available soon; watch NEOHgolf.com and ADGAgolf.com for details on this final ADGA event of the season.
