Cleveland Metroparks GolfAfter two days of intense heat, humidity and a tough golf course setup, Jim Herchek of Chagrin Falls won the 2017 Senior Cleveland Amateur Golf Championship by a single shot at Big Met Golf Course in Fairview Park.

Marc PogacharHerchek began Thursday’s second round tied for the lead with Marc Pogachar (right), and the two remained tied at the top at even par after 27 holes.

But down the stretch Herchek was able to secure the victory with rounds of 72-75 for a total of 3-over par 147, holding off Pogachar (72-76) as well as second round charges by Allen Freeman (76-72), Cary Slabaugh (75-73), and David Peck (74-74), all of whom finished one shot behind at 148. (Freeman was awarded the runner-up trophy via scorecard playoff.)

All players who shot a score of 149 and under qualified for the Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship at Manakiki Golf Course in Willoughby Hills August 11th – 13th.
