Day One of this year’s championship started out as a dreary, damp day at beautiful Westwood
Country Club. The Morning wave of players experienced some wet fairway conditions as a
result of the previous day’s rains. The morning clouds gave way to a sunny, breezy day for the
afternoon wave of players.
Neil Vanleeuwen, from Glen Echo, led the way on Day 1 for the Senior Division with one under
71. Gary Hill (Old Hickory) and Buddy Allen (Dalhousie) shot even par 72, with Jim Holtgrieve
(Bellerive) and David Rudd (CC of St. Albans) carded one over 73.
In the Super Senior Division, Ron Miles (Forest Hills), Ed Goldberg (Westwood) and Don
Dupske (Legends) shot 74s to lead the way in that Division.
Day Two turned out to be a spectacular Summer Day for the Morning Shotgun for all players.
Allen shot an outstanding one under 71 to capture this year’s Cassett Senior Championship,
with a two day total of 143. Hill prevailed in a scorecard playoff over Vanleeuwen, with both
carding a two day total of 148. Holtgrieve finished fourth, winning a scorecard playoff over Jeff
Johnson (Bogey Hills), with both carding a two day total of 149.
In the Super Senior Division on Day Two, Bob Trittler (Persimmon Woods and our reigning
Super Senior Champion), came roaring back from a Day One 79 to record a 71 on Day 2 to
capture the Super Senior Championship, with a two day total of 150. Don Dupske won a
scorecard playoff over Ron Miles to capture second, with a two day total of 152.
In the Senior Division Net Competition, Dave Diemer (Greenbriar Hills) carded a two day total of
7 Under 137, with Mike Murphy (Meadowbrook) close behind at 139, and Larry Buchanan (Old
Hickory), finishing third with a total of 141.
In the Super Senior Net Competition, Westwood’s own Ed Goldberg recorded a two day total of
135, including a Day One 63. Don Bassman (Westwood) recorded a two day total of 139, while
Clark Amos finished third with a 140.
Thanks to all who participated and special thanks to Barb Heninger, General Manager, and
Daryl Hartig, Head Professional, and their staffs for hosting this great event. We were pleased
to present the original Cassett Trophy to Jim Dalton (Westwood’s District Rep and Louis
Cassett’s grandson) and Daryl Hartig to keep the original trophy on site at Westwood.
