Northern Ohio Golf AssociationLyndhurst’s Chris Okeson continued his season-long hot streak, shooting a sizzling 4-under par 68 at Elyria Country Club to win the AA Division of the NOGA Stroke Play West Tournament.

Making seven birdies on his day at Elyria to cruise to a six shot victory, it’s safe to say that Okeson is officially “on a roll”.

Already this season, Okeson has won the Mid-Am Division of the Northeast Ohio Am, earned a T1 with partner Steve Putinski at the NOGA Spring Four-Ball at Lakewood, finished with five birdies on the back nine to win the Turkeyfoot Stableford, and just this past weekend won the two-day Fox Den Championship.

That’s a great season’s worth of accomplishment, and it’s only mid-July.

The Senior contingent at Elyria was a bit more competitive.

Mark Guadagni Elyria CC
Mark Guadagni rolls home his par putt on the 10th on his way to an even par 72 at Elyria.

Mark Guadagni and Larry Lahnan tied atop the Senior AA Division, both posting even par scores of 72. Guadagni made an eagle-3 at the par-5 12th hole to aid his cause, but it was no skin winner as Lakewood’s Colin Maclean tied him up. Four players finished two shots behind the top pair for a big batch T3.

Larry Lahnan

Matthew Brooks of Medina edged out Britt Lilley and Bill Allen for a one-shot victory in the A Division with a score of 77. Brooks also won two skins on the day to pad his take.

In Senior A, George Bingman continued his winning ways, shooting a solid 1-under par score of 71 — which would have been a winner by one in Senior AA flight.

Bill Scherer
Bill Scherer studies his second shot to the 14th at Elyria Country Club.

The B Division saw Bryan Scafidi take the win and also earn a tidy five skins on the day, while in Senior B Bill Scherer (pictured above) edged out a pair of players as one of them, Joe Kokinda, made three birdie skins in that division.

Sweetbriar players earned the top spots in the final two divisions: Jim Crandall earned the win and three skins in Senior C; and Emmett Moran captured Senior D.


The next event on the 2019 tournament schedule is the NOGA 55/25 Four-Ball at Silver Lake Country Club on Monday, August 19th.
