Junior Grabs Tie in Namesake’s Ungvary Sr. Memorial at Good Park


In a bit of a storybook result, Joe Ungvary Jr. and partner David Griffith nabbed a tie with Dan Marr and Vaughn Snyder in the 2009 Joe Ungvary Sr. Memorial at Good Park Golf Course in Akron on Saturday.

33 teams competed in a ‘jumble’ format of six holes scramble, six holes better ball and six holes alternate shot, with prizes paid to overall, each six holes and skins. The event commemorates the life and accomplishments of Joe Ungvary Sr., one of the area’s great amateur players.

While no team flat-out ran away from the rest of the field, the teams of Ungvary Jr. / Griffith and Marr / Snyder posted a total score of 4-under par 67 capture the 2009 tournament. Complete results below, including breakdowns for each of the six hole sections.

In addition to the tie at the top, the other big winners on the day were Paul Prince and Chuck Cvosec, as they earned the only skin of the day with a birdie on the 209-yard par-3 ninth hole, worth $660.

A special thank you to Larry Horner, Larry Zimmerman and Dave Chapple for their efforts in making the Ungvary Memorial a must-play event in the Northeast Ohio golf season.
