What a great day! What a great field! What a great golf course! That’s the best way to
describe this year’s Salomon Father/Son Championship at Whitmoor Country Club. 57 teams
teed it up for this year’s event on a perfect day. The teams enjoyed great pace of play on both
courses, and capped off the day with a great dinner and awards ceremony.
This year’s Champions are our first “back to back” Champions since 1998. Justin and Paul
Hemings (Sunset Hills CC), shot a 4 under par 67 to capture this year’s championship and take
home the huge Salomon trophy once again. Congratulations, Justin and Paul.
In the 13 & under flight, Dan and Sam Emrick (Old Hickory GC) captured the honors, shooting
69, edging out Steve and Joe Hyten (Sunset Hills CC), who carded a 71.
In the 14-15 yr. old flight, Jay and JT Williamson (Bellerive CC), carded a 78, while Jason and
Dominic Steeno (Whitmoor CC), were runners up with 81.
In the 16-17 yr. old flight, the team of Pat and Ben Tyrrell (Sunset Hills CC) carded a 69, while
Chris and Ben Blasé (Persimmon Woods GC) were runners up at 73.
In the 18-23 yr. old flight, Bob and Clayton Cissell (Bogey Hills CC) won, shooting 74, with Tom
and Trey Schneider close behind at 75.
In the 24-34 yr. old flight, Tanner and Kent Dinsdale (Bogey Hills CC), won a three way score
card playoff, shooting 70 and winning over Kris and Tim Jakel (Sunset Hills CC) and Jeremy
and Eldon Lawyer (Whitmoor CC).
In the 35 yr old + flight, Alex and Kit Nowicki (Forest Hills/Winghaven CCs), and the 2008
Father/Son champions, carded an even par 71, defeating Scott and Brandon Hays (Bogey Hills
CC), who shot 72.
Thanks to all the participants. And thanks to the entire Whitmoor staff for hosting this great
event, and to the members who gave up their course so we could play on such a gorgeous day.
See you next year at Norwood Hills on August 3, 2018.
