FINAL RESULTS: 2016 Chippewa Senior Championship

Chippewa Senior Championship
115 players get ready for the 2016 Chippewa Senior Championship played on September 14th in Doylestown.

Chippewa Golf Club Doylestown OhioRob Schustrich of Windham successfully defended his Chippewa Senior Championship on Wednesday, winning in a playoff.

Shustrich, Dean Cutlip and Bruno Chirumbolo (who played in the 60-69 age division!) all finished the day at even par 71 to tie for medalist honors on a challenging weather day.

Five holes after the start of shotgun play, an hour-and-a-half long rain drenched the golf course, which delayed the finish of the event. Because Chirumbolo had a previous commitment for the evening, he could not stay to participate in the playoff. So Cutlip and Schustrich headed to the tenth tee to decide the winner.

Both players made standard 5-pars on the 10th, although Schustrich nearly made his birdie putt from about 18 feet.

Rob Schustrich sends his birdie attempt on the first playoff hole toward the cup, stopping just on the edge.

After the tee shots at 11, Cutlip looked to have the advantage as Schustrich caught the edge of the heather grass that frames the left rough, forcing a mid-iron layup. But Cutlip didn’t take keep his advantage as he flared his second shot on the par-5 to the right, onto some hardpan.

Dean CutlipSchustrich hit his third shot 20 feet above and to the right of the cup. But Cutlip left his difficult bare-lie pitch short, then chipped his fourth to 8 feet (photo left).

Schustrich cozied his birdie putt down to a couple feet and marked. When Cutlip missed his mid-range par putt wide, Schustrich holed his short putt with authority to claim back-to-back championships.

Kevin Larizza and the staff at Chippewa are to be commended for getting the rain-soaked event completed, and doing so in a spectacular way. The golf course was in great shape even after the downpour, the filet dinner served after the round was unbelievably delicious, and the big field was treated to a great tournament operation — all for just $50 plus ten bucks for skins. Thanks Kevin…
