Josh Clay of Shady Hollow Country Club in Massillon secured his position as the best-of-the-best at Sharon Golf Club on Tuesday, September 19th, winning the 2017 NOGA Tournament of Champions.

Clay recorded a blistering 4-under par 68 to garner top honors at this prestigious tournament.

“I had never played Sharon before, so I was really looking forward to playing it,” said Clay. “I just tried to keep the ball in the fairway and below the hole, and was able to make a few 15-20 foot putts.”

Rounding out the top three were Brian Smith of Oberlin Golf Club with a 71 (-1), and Alex Andrews of Kirtland Country Club with a 73 (+1).

“I was just really excited to play in this event at Sharon,” said Clay. “I got hot on the front nine and birdied 4 of the first 5 holes which kept my round low.”

The Tournament of Champions is a NOGA staple held at the end of every season. Only member club champions are invited, with the runners-up accepted if the champion is unavailable for play.
