Senior Summit County Amateur Golf ChampionshipMassillon’s Kurt Peterson shot the only under-par round on Sunday at Good Park, and with it took the 2019 Senior Summit County Amateur Championship.

A constant swirling breeze, some hot temperatures with high humidity, and a Good Park Golf Course that was a bit scruffy from an overly-rainy summer made for some challenging scoring conditions. But Peterson kept his ball-striking mistakes to a minimum and made every key putt he needed over the course of Sunday’s round. It was no-nonsense play-to-win.

Peterson, who also won a Summit County Amateur at Good Park in 2004, overcame a three-shot deficit over first-round co-leader Doug Rockich of Green (above). Rockich finished Sunday with a 75 to nab solo second place, after opening in 2-under par 70 at Barberton Brookside on Friday.

Rick Bryson

Akron’s Rick Bryson finished T3 overall while earning Super Senior Division honors for players ages 60-69, a spectacular result. Bryson, a two-time past Summit County Am champ as well, tied with Bobby Spino at T3 at 3-over par 146.

Friday’s other first-round co-leader, Mike Armour of Stow (above), didn’t have his best stuff on Sunday, but still finished T5 in a five-way logjam with Scott Saari, Tom Baugh, Jeff Luken and Dean Cutlip.

Mike Lingo lapped the field in the Super Super Senior Division for players ages 70+, shooting a phenomenal Sunday score of even-par 71 at Good Park — which also earned him a T9 overall finish.

There were no outright skin winners on Sunday, so six players on three holes split the pot as least-tied. Complete results below. Gift certificate amounts listed below can be redeemed at Foxy Golf in Akron after August 26th…
