A hole-in-one and an eagle on a par-4 by Nick Anagnost was not enough to overcome the birdie-birdie-birdie finish of Andrew and Jason Jendre.
The father-and-son Jendre team played flawless golf, recording six birdies and no bogeys.
The Jendre’s 6-under par 65 gave them a two shot victory over Anagnost and partner Mark Foss. Nick holed out for eagle on the long third hole, the toughest par-4 on the course, then followed that with a hole-in-one on the 12th.
Third place went to the team of University of Michigan player Sophia Trombetta and senior partner Mike Devine, who shot 2-under 70.
Thanks to all who played in the first year for this format.
Next events in the Cleveland Metroparks Player of the Year Series will be the Senior Cleveland Am and all of the various Course Championships/Cleveland Am Qualifiers in July, then the Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship at Manakiki in August.
