Dave Pulk Wins 2008 Summit County Amateur in Playoff Over Vaughn Snyder


Summit County Amateur Golf ChampionshipDave Pulk of Hudson had to fight hard against the challenge that 2008 Ohio Amateur Champion Vaughn Snyder of Massillon threw at him Sunday. And he fought him off just well enough to win the 2008 Summit County Amateur Championship at Good Park GC in Akron.

2008 Summit County Amateur Champion Dave PulkPulk followed up his sizzling first round score of 5-under par 66 with a solid even-par 71 in the second. But Snyder tied Pulk by posting a 3-under par 68 in the second round, sending the event to a playoff.

Pulk then outlasted Snyder in the 3-hole aggregate playoff by shooting 1-under par for those three holes, and thus captured his first win in the Summit County Amateur.

Pulk has had a stellar record in the Akron District Golf Association, winning Player of the Year three times. He has also won the 2003 Northeast Ohio Amateur, has been club championship at Lake Forest CC in Hudson several times, and has qualified for a number of national amateur events.

But at 52 years of age, and with the quality of the field that he beat, his 2008 Summit County Am victory should remain a satisfying accomplishment.
