Bryant Is Men’s Medalist

80 plus players teed it up at the Lewis & Clark Course at the Country Club of St. Albans on
Thursday, July 14th (we had 84 players registered at one point, only to have several
withdrawals before, during and after Round 1). Several players posted four Under 67’s, to lead
the way. They included Michael Becker, from Glen Echo, Reilly Ahearn and Greg Sanborn from
Persimmon Woods. The course was playing a tough 6800 yards for these great players.
Day Two proved to be a most interesting day and great conclusion. Justin Bryant, from St,
Louis Country Club, shot an outstanding 8 Under 64 to capture medalist honors at 135 for the
two day Stroke Play portion. Glen Echo’s Becker added a 69 to the Day One 67 to finish
second at 136. Our 2020 Men’s Champion, Jason Landry from Greenbriar Hills carded 69 and
70 to finish third at 139. Brevin Giebler, from Dalhousie was fourth, shooting 70 and 70 at 140.
Bellerive’s Peter Weaver was tied with Meadowbrook’s Frank Thomas, our 2021 Men’s
Champion at 141. Rounding out the field for Match play was Shawn Jasper, from Algonquin
and Alex Cusumano, our 2011 Men’s Champion at 142, and Reilly Ahern, all posting 142. as
did Persimmon Woods’ Paul Neeman. Our three time Men’s Champion, Chris Kovach from Old
Hickory Golf Club, shot 143, Quincy’s Ryan Schuenke shot 144, Winghaven’s Didier Villard
carded at 145, Glen Echo’s Drew Pranger shot 146, and Bogey Hills David Schilp came in at
147. We needed one spot for a clean 16 for Match Play.
One player needed to par the last two holes to create our field of 16. Unfortunately, he played
the last two holes in three over. In perhaps a first for the Men’s Championship, we had a 10
way tie for the last spot, which created a 10 for 1 playoff. We started on Hole 18, where 4
players were eliminated with bogey 5’s. We then went to Hole 17, where 4 more players were
eliminated with bogeys, leaving Persimmon’s Greg Sanborn and Persimmon’s David Bremer as
the last two standing. Both parred Hole 18 in the third playoff hole, so back to the 18th tee
they went. Bremer’s tee shot landed in the left bunker, while Sanborn split the fairway. Bremer
reached the back of the green on his fourth shot, while Sanborn hit his approach to about 4
feet, and Bremer conceded. What a great playoff.
