June 27, 2016
Chantilly's Rob Keith was the only golfer in the field of 76 to match par at the Laurel Hill GC in the opening round of the Northern Virginia Senior Amateur.

A score of 79 was the cut for the final round, with three of the four golfers at 79 surviving in a match of cards.

June 24, 2016
A field of 76 golfers will compete in the 33rd edition of the Northern Virginia Senior Amateur next Monday and Tuesday, June 27-28.

Current Northern Virginia Four- Ball champions Eddie Walker and Tim Vigotsky are entered, as well as Richmond's John Cuomo and the 2011 Washington Metropolitan Senior Amateur champion, Richard Thomas, which he won at Laurel Hill. Several past Senior champions will now participate in a very competitive Super-Senior Division, to include not only Jacobi (past winner in both divisions), but Tom Grady, Bill Stout, Dick Bowen and Dave King. The event is individual medal play with Gross Senior and Super-Senior Divisions as well as a Net division. First day play will be a 1:00 shotgun start and will include additional age group competitions. The low 24 gross Senior division, 12 gross Super-Senior and 4 Net scores qualify for the second round.

DeTemple Loses in Playoff for VSGA Senior Stroke Play Title - McQuitty, Zampedro, Steele and Yates Tie for Ninth
June 15, 2016
Old Hickory's Peter DeTemple and Ballyhack's Mike Krulick followed up their VSGA Senior Four-Ball title three weeks ago with a 1-2 finish in the VSGA Senior Stroke Play championship concluding yesterday at the CC of Petersburg. DeTemple, who resides in Maryland, opened with a 74 and was 5 shots behind the leaders, but a final round 5 under 67, including a birdie on the final hole, caught Krulick at 3-under 141. Krulich had rounds of 70-71. Krulick won the first playoff hole with a par. Four other golfers from Northern Virginia clubs had top ten finishes - Phil McQuitty (Chantilly), Jon Zampedro (Pleasant Valley), John Steele (Reston National ) and Danny Yates (Stonewall) all tied for ninth with 2-over 146.

Abbett, Wessman Runners-Up in VSGA Super Senior Stroke Play
June 3, 2016
Lynn Wessman (Army Navy) was one of only two players to shoot an under-par round during the two-day VSGA Super Senior Stroke Play Championship June 1-2 at the Fawn Lake CC in Spotsylvania, and Jon Abbett (Trump National) tied the low round (73) on the final day. In an event where it seemed like most everyone had at least one "bad" day, Abbett's and Wessman's "good" day was better than most and resulted in them tying for second, one shot behind the only participant who avoided the "bad day", Taswell's Charlie Green. Green shot 74-75 for a 5-over total of 149 to take the title. Wessman shot one-under 71 in the opening round and was second to first-round leader Ward Hamilton's 3-under 69. Playing in the final group with Hamilton and Green on the second day, Wessman and Hamilton shot 40 and 42, respectively, on the outgoing 9 to fall behind Green, who shot an even par 36. Green increased his lead over Wessman to three after the 14th, but bogies at 15 and 16 cut the lead back to one. A bogey at 17 by Wessman got the lead back to two, but after Green struggled to make bogey at 18, Wessman's second shot gave him a 15-footer to tie, which just missed. Wessman had a final round 79 for a 150 total. Abbett opened with 77, but his 73 on the last day, including a birdie at the 18th, moved him considerably up the leaderboard to the runner-up position with Wessman. Shenandoah Valley's Tom Grady had the other final round low score of 73 after an opening 79, moving him up to a fifth place finish. Northern Virginians Dave King, John Whitmore and Bill Engel all tied for seventh with 153.

Cigna-Warnquist Runners-Up in USGA Four-Ball Championship - Shingler - Young Make the Round of 16
May 26, 2016
Arlington's Brandon Cigna teamed with Olney, MD's Ben Warnquist to advance to the finals of the USGA Four-Ball championship yesterday at Winged Foot GC before falling to collegians (SMU) Andrew Buchanan and Benjamin Baxter 3 and 2. Cigna and Warnquist were one of 128 teams who qualified regionally last fall from a field of approximately 1250 teams, then qualified this week from among those 128 teams to make the match play field of 32 teams. They then won four matches to advance to the finals which automatically qualifies them for next year's championship to be played at Pinehurst. Scott Shingler (Haymarket) teamed with Justin Young (Roanoke) to also make the round of 32 and won their opening match, but fell to eventual champions Baxter and Buchanan 1 down in the second round.
