Final Results: 2010 Medalist Tour Granite Classic


The Medalist TourEric Frishette took a huge step towards wrapping up The Medalist Tour’s Player of the Year honors by firing a 5-under par 66 at Shale Creek Golf Club Thursday for his fifth victory of the 2010 season. But Paul Wackerly sure didn’t make it easy for him.

Wackerly, the head pro at next week’s venue Carroll Meadows, came out firing a 4-under par 32 on the front nine to lead Frishette by two at the turn. But Frishette, the two-time All-American from Kent State, came right back with a birdie on 10 to pull within one. Frishette then birdied again on 13 to catch Wackerly. Both players birdied 14 then parred 15 through 17 to go to the last hole tied at 4-under. When Wackerly couldn’t get up and down to save par at the last, Frishette two-putted to win.

The victory earned Frishette $800 and pushed his leading money total to $6,880.00 on the year.

The Amateur Championship Flight finish was just as exciting. Kenny Kowall and Tommy Li both shot 2-over par 73 and headed to a sudden-death playoff. Each player was trying to win for the first time on tour. After both players matched par twice on hole number 10, the playoff went to the par-3 11th hole. Li hit first and hit his shot over the elevated green. Kowall’s shot landed just short of the green about 35 from the pin. Li attempted to hit a flop shot but the club slipped right under the club on the first attempt. He tried again and that shot landed short of the green. Kowall then putted up to around five feet. When Li’s putt missed, Kowall tapped in for the victory.

Walt Robertson matched par 71 to beat Mike Hastings by 4 shots in the Senior Open competition. Ken Fishman finished third with a 77 and Joe Nowak’s 78 was good enough for fourth.

There were some great scores in the Amateur Net Flight, with Kevin Zhang’s net 65 leading the way. Matt Knez finished one shot back at net 66 and Ken Fishman was another shot back in third.

Five skins were won on the day, each worth $120. The winners were Wackerly, Li, Dave Snell, Dan Rush and Mike Angie. Li and Zhang each won a pinshot and another $75.

The next event is Thursday, September 9th at Carroll Meadows Golf Club.
