Twenty teams teed it up at the beautiful Quincy Country Club on September 18 & 19. While the
number of participants was a smaller field than usual, we had some great golf played at a
course in great condition, and weather a pure Chamber of Commerce advertisement for two
In the Day One Fourball competition, local favorites Ryan Schuenke and Andrew Boudreau
used their local course knowledge to shoot a Six Under 64 to lead the way in the Open
Division. Defending champs Buddy Allen (Dalhousie) and Tom Sinak (Meadowbrook were a
distant second, with a One Over 71. The Old Hickory team of Mark Keller and Jason Campbell
were in third, recording a Two Over 72. The Open Division played at 6400 yards.
In the Net Division, played from 5800 yards, Quincy teams again dominated, with the first three
teams all from Quincy. Tim Eaton and Rex Schulz recorded an 11 Under Net 59, while the
team of Brad Keller and Matt Boudreau, were one behind at Net 60, as was the team of Jim
Millman and his friend Jim Roth, who hails from the Legends.
In the Foursome Competition, players apologize to each other on the first tee for all the bad
positions they put their players for their next shot! Well, the Quincy team of Schuenke and
Boudreau didn’t need too much apologizing, as they recorded a Five Over 75, to add to their
Day One total, shooting a spectacular two day total of 139. The Allen/Sinak team did their best
to try to catch them, recording a 76 for a two day total of 147, for second place. Schuenke and
Sinak were especially pleased, as they had yet to qualify for the Jackson Invitational. Todd
Turner and Brian Parsons (Algonquin) played solid golf, shooting 81 on Day Two, but with their
Day One score of 73, finished third, for their first Benson experience.
In the Net Division, Quincy’s Brad Keller and Matt Boudreau recorded a Net 69, for a Two Day
total of 129, to capture the Net Division. Tim Eaton and Rex Schulz recorded a 72, for a Two
Day Total of 131, winning a scorecard playoff against Old Hickory’s Dan Purdum and Tim
Many of the players had not previously played Quincy Country Club and raved about how they
loved the course, even though the Green speeds, compliments of Superintendent Tim Salazar,
were some of the fastest greens they had seen all season. The Pro Shop staff of Head
Professional Gideon Smith, and Assistants Jon Roberson and Emily Van Rie made our job of
running the event a breeze. And many thanks to all the Quincy CC staff and their members for
making this year’s event an excellent adventure.
