Cleveland Metroparks Golf
2011 Big Met Course Championship
Brian VanDeMotter, Andrew Bailey and Mike Klaric (L to R) posted some low scores at Big Met.

Big Met Golf CourseAfter posting a course record score of 9-under par 63 in the first round, Andrew Bailey started the day with a four shot lead. He shot a steady 35-35=70 to capture his first Big Met Course Championship at 11-under par for 36 holes. But even still, Bailey’s victory wasn’t without some drama.

Brian VanDeMotter made a strong charge on the front nine with six straight birdies on holes 3 through 8. Brian had a one shot lead leaving the eighth green. But unfortunately, VanDeMotter made a double bogey on the long par four ninth hole and Bailey retook the lead and never relinquished it. Bailey made birdies on 16 and 17 to finish with a 2-shot victory.

Mike Klaric shot a 7-under par total to finish in third place, while Bryan Yeo posted 5-under par to finish in fourth. Some great scoring by the top finishers!

The top 12 players and ties qualified for the Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship at Sleepy Hollow in Brecskville August 12-14th. Because three of the top 12 players were already exempt into the championship, everyone at the score of 150 and below was able to advance.
