Cleveland Metroparks GolfBattling through rain drops and very soft course conditions, Doug Savage of Mount Vernon faced a six shot deficit starting Round 2 of the 2017 Senior Masters Cleveland Amateur Championship for players age 60+.

Savage mounted a fierce come-from-behind victory, spurred on by a HOLE-IN-ONE on the par-3 10th hole. He closed the deal with a back nine score of 33 and finished with a 76-68=144 even par total.

Savage narrowly edged out past Senior Masters champion Jim Herchek, who fired rounds of 72-73=145 to finish in second place.

Keith Pluto finished his final round with an even par 72, giving him a 146 for the tournament, good enough to take third place.

In the Super Senior Masters Division for players age 70 and over, David Kriak jumped out to an early lead after Day One then held on for the victory with scores of 74-80=154. Ray Harris took second place at 79-82=161.
