Northern Ohio Golf AssociationThe home team from Oberlin Golf Club used their local course knowledge — and some doggone good golf — to earn a two point victory in the 2019 Northern Ohio Golf Association Interclub Event #2 on Thursday.

Playing under a positive-only modified Stableford points system, Oberlin’s Brian Smith and Connor Mead lead their team with 36 points each, tying the pair for the fourth best individual point total of the day. Ben Farina notched 34 points and Ben Hogan earned 33 to round out the Team Oberlin total.

Two points behind the home team were the Interclub Event #1 champions, Quail Hollow Country Club. Four-time Cleveland Am champ Brad Steven paced the Quail Hollow team with a solid 38 points, second best of the day. Jeff Blechschmidt earned 35 points (and a skin with a nice birdie on the par-3 eighth), while Jeff Sawitke carded 33 and Clark Nelson 31.

Shady Hollow Country Club star Kurt Peterson of Massillon posted the round of the day, racking up a solid 39 total points. The highlight of Peterson’s round was a five-birdie, no-bogey back nine that generated a whopping 23 points. On fire.

Bryn Irvine The shot of the day belonged to Bryn Irvine of Avon Oaks Country Club. Irvine made a hole-in-one on the uphill par-3 13th hole from 139 yards — and netted a skin, of course. (No drinks to buy after the round, though; host Oberlin GC is a dry club. Diet Cokes all around!)

The Quail Hollow and Oberlin teams are now tied at the top of the 2019 NOGA Interclub season-long points race, each holding 19. Next best is Canterbury Golf Club at 13.5, followed by Silver Lake at 12.

The final 2019 Interclub Team Event #3 will be a count 3-of-4 scores in an individual stroke play tournament at the beautiful Glenmoor Country Club in Canton on Thursday, September 5th. Expect one wild shootout to determine the season-long Interclub Team Champion…
