After two grueling days on two of the toughest courses played all year on The Medalist Tour, the cream rose to the top: Eric Frishette won his seventh event of the season, Walt Robertson his fifth and Kenny Kowall his third after each won their respective flights in The 2010 Tour Championship held Thursday and Friday at Stonewater and Little Mountain Country Clubs.
Frishette shot 4-under 67 on Thursday at Stonewater to take a commanding 5-shot lead over Brian Unk and six shots over Mike Hastings. His even-par 71 Friday at Little Mountain was all he needed to secure the victory.
Unk, Garrett Frank and Jake Scott all matched Frishette’s 71 Friday. Frishette finished at 138 for the 5-shot win. Unk finished second at 143, while Frank and Scott finished tied for third at 145.
In the Senior Division, Hastings ballooned to 84 in the wind on Friday, opening the door for Robertson. The veteran took full advantage, shooting the low score of the day, a 4-under 67 to turn a 6-shot deficit into a 5-shot victory.
Kenny Kowall had the low round among the Championship Flight competitors on Thursday and Friday. His 73 – 74 = 147 total was five shots better than runner-up Paul Kish, who shot 74 at Stonewater and 78 at Little Mountain. Josh DeWees and Tommy Li tied for third place at 155.
Kish’s net 142 was good enough to win the First Flight.
