Rob Keith is Northern Virginia Senior Amateur Champion - Dwight Holman Tops Super Seniors
June 13, 2017

KeithLast year in this event at Laurel Hill GC, Rob Keith shot an opening round even-par 71 and found himself alone in the lead by three shots. A bad start in the final round, however, allowed many players back in and Keith eventually finished in fifth place. This year he opened with a 1-under 69 at the Mount Vernon CC and again was in the lead, but this time he was tied with Chip Beveridge (Belle Haven CC), with several other contenders still in the game - which may have helped him maintain his focus throughout the final round. Keith pulled out a one shot victory over a trio of those contenders - Beveridge, three time champion Stan Williams ( River Creek Club), and Laurel Hill's Eddie Walker, who had the low round of the day (71) among the regular seniors. Keith turned in 36 with bogies at holes' 3 and 7, and a birdie at the 8th. This gave him a one stroke advantage over Beveridge and Williams, but Walker fashioned a 34 to tie Keith for the lead. Walker grabbed the lead at the 10th when Keith's drive went out of bounds over the green on the short par-4 and he made a double bogey. The lead then fluctuated between Walker, Williams, Keith and Beveridge until the pivotal 15th hole when Keith's length allowed him to reach the par-5 in two and two-putt for a birdie. This moved him back into the lead by one over Beveridge (who bogied the 15th) and Williams, and by two over Walker who had bogied the 12th and 14th. Playing in the last group, Keith, Williams and Beveridge all made bogey at the par 3 16th, allowing Walker to join Williams and Beveridge at one back heading to the final two holes. All four pared the 17th, with Williams making a tricky downhill 6 footer, but Keith's length came into play again on the par-4 18th when he drove it to within 30 yards of the green and easily made the par he needed to win. Keith finished with 69-73 - 142, Walker with 72-71-143, Williams with 71-72-143 and Beveridge with 69-74-143. Ron Clatterbuck (Evergreen CC) was fifth at 146. The 61-year old Keith was also on his home club's A-Team (Chantilly National GCC) as they won that championship in April.

The super-senior division (age 65+) was implemented in 2015 and the first two winners (Peter Jacobi and Tom Grady) were also previous winners of the regular senior championship. Holman Dwight Holman (The Piedmont Club) continued that tradition as the 2009 senior champion won the super-senior division with a final round 2-under 68, edging out Jacobi by one shot. Holman began the day 4 shots back of first round co-leaders Lynn Wessman and Cal Coolidge, but began quickly with an eagle 2 on the par-four 3rd hole - the most difficult hole on the course. A lost tee shot on the 5th hole, however resulted in a triple bogey, but he quickly recovered with a birdie 2 at the 6th, turning in 35. Jacobi started the final round two shots back, but a 38 on the outward nine put him one back of Holman. Both played the back nine in 2-under 33, with Holman making birdies on holes 10 and 14 (the latter a tap-in after another near hole-out for eagle), while Jacobi made birdie on the difficult 12th hole and a two-putt birdie on the par-five 15th. Holman finsihed at 75-68 - 143, while Jacobi fished with 73-71 - 144. Bob Albus (River Bend CC) and Walt Marin (Army Navy CC) tied for third at 145.

The Northern Sections would like to thank the Mount Vernon CC for hosting this year's championship, with special thanks to PGA Golf Professional Bryan Armstrong, PGA, his staff and to Superintendent Mike King, GCSAA, for the excellent playing conditions.

Keith, Beveridge Lead Northern Virginia Senior Amateur - Wessman, Coolidge Lead Super Seniors
June 12, 2017

The Mount Vernon CC received wide-spread approval of the recent course renovations from the field - in spite of giving up only two scores of par or better in the opening round of the Northern Virginia Senior Amateur today. Rob Keith (Chantilly National) birdied his first hole (#6 in the shotgun start), along with holes 14 and 15, but bogeys in between at 9 and 12 still left him at 1-under 69. Chip Beveridge (Belle Haven), also got off to a good start with an eagle 2 at his second hole (the 10th) and added a birdie at the 17th, with bogeys in between at 12 and 15, to also finish with 69. Three time champion Stan Williams (River Creek Club) and Ron Clatterbuck (Evergreen CC) are tied for third with 1-over 71. In the super-senior division, Lynn Wessman (Army Navy) and Cal Coolidge Blue Ridge Shadows GC) are tied at 71. Each golfer had four birdies - Wessman at holes 4,7,10 and 16, and Coolidge on holes 3,4,8 and 18. Play will be scheduled tee times on Tuesday beginning at 10:16.

Peter Jacobi Wins VSGA Super Senior Stroke Play
June 2, 2017

jacobiArmy Navy's Peter Jacobi has been one of Northern Virginia's top super senior golfers since he turned 65 nine years ago. In 2011 he won his first VSGA Super Senior Stroke Play Championship (along with the Northern Virginia Senior Amateur), and yesterday, at age 74, he added his second VSGA Super Senior Stroke Play Championship at Stonehenge GCC in Richmond. Jacobi seems to like the tougher layouts the best, being the only golfer in the field to better par at Belmont CC in 2011, and yesterday being the only golfer to match par with a two-day total of 72-70-142. His final nine 3-under 32, with birdies at holes 11, 13 and 17 made up a 2-shot deficit against Richmond's John Cumo after 27 holes, and one shot on fellow Army Navy member Bill Engel. Cumo (70-74)and Richmond's Mike Thompson (75-69) tied for second at 144. Engel, a two-time winner of this event himself, finished fifth with 70-77 - 147.
