This year’s Senior Great Cleveland Amateur Championship at Big Met had an exciting finish!

Mike BeresWith a three-way tie at even par 144 after 36 holes of regulation, first round leader Mike Beres (left), Akron’s Jimmy Cea and last week’s CMG Senior Masters winner Larry Lahnan headed out to the ninth hole for a sudden death play-off.

By making a par at the difficult ninth, Mike Beres walked away as this year’s Senior Champion beating out the bogey 5 of Cea and Lahnan.

In addition to crowning Beres as champion, players with a score of 148 or better who were not already exempt qualified for the 2018 Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship at Sleep Hollow Golf Course in Brecksville the second week of August.

Thank you to all who played and made this a very memorable tournament!
