Brian Smith and Jim Krivanek love Sand Ridge.
The pair won The Egg Invitational in September of last year over a big-time field at Sand Ridge, posting a tournament record score for that three round event.
Today at Sand Ridge, faced with a good bit of wind, loads of thick rough, and some truly fantastic greens, Smith and Krivanek shot a strong 7-under par 65 to win the Northern Ohio Golf Association’s AA / Senior AA Four-Ball Tournament by two shots.
Yep, they love it.
Ben Farina and Greg Kencson finished alone in second place at 5-under par 67, followed by a two-way tie for third place by Wes Stafford / Ryan Dorff and Steve Putinski / Chris Okeson another shot back.
In the Senior AA Division, Tom Baugh and Tom Skidmore posted their second NOGA senior team victory of the season. Shooting a 2-under par 70 in better ball, they again nipped a pair of teams by a single shot for the win. This time, it was Richard Marlowe / Jeffrey Knox and Larry Lahnan / Fred Miller who came up one shot shy.
Back in the beginning of May, Baugh and Skidmore won the 2-Player Scramble at Shady Hollow, also by one shot over two teams.
The results from this event set the season-long AA/Senior AA Four-Ball Match Play Seedings, available here.
Next up on the NOGA schedule, the Northeast Ohio Amateur Championship runs for 54-holes at Windmill Lakes Golf Club in Ravenna runs this coming Saturday through Monday. The NOGA Stroke Play Championship goes the following week on Thursday, June 13th at Portage Country Club.
