Forty-six teams participated in this year’s Jim Benson Two Man Championship at beautiful
Meadowbrook Country Club. Day One proved to be a bit tough on the competitors with a cool,
windy fall like day. This did not hamper some great scoring in the four ball competition.
David Bremer and Joe Timpone (Old Hickory) shot a 6 under par 66 on Day One to lead the
way. Close behind were Steve Hyten and Matt Lewis (Sunset Hills), Tom Sinak (Meadowbrook)
and Buddy Allen (Dalhousie), and Skip Berkmeyer (Legends) and Bob Beckmann
(Meadowbrook) all carded 67s. Dan Emrick and Adam Stamper (Old Hickory), and David
Archibald and Justin Wrozier (Old Hickory) posted 68s.
On the Net Side of the four ball competition, Roy Wilson and Marty Bucher (Whitmoor) carded a
10 under par 62, followed closely by Dave Diemer and Jeff Marquitz (Greenbriar Hills), and Don
Bassman and Steve Gall (Westwood) shooting net 63.
The Day Two foursomes competition saw some great golf with great finishes. Berkmeyer and
Beckmann birdied the last hole to shoot 67 in this alternate shot format, hoping their combined
score of 134 could clinch the title, Bremer and Timpone also recorded a solid 67 to capture
the title by one stroke.
