B. Anderson caps amateur title with eagle


Brad Anderson said his runaway victory was a lot different than his two-stroke triumph over Neil Krick last season.

“With a big lead, you tend to be conservative,” said Anderson, who took a one-stroke lead into the final round last year. “I tried to be a little more aggressive today and tried to make every shot count. I ended up with a good round.”

Mark McGraw Jr. placed fourth after matching cards with Truman and Wagner as all three finished at 235. Truman took fifth and Wagner placed sixth.

Govern and Duane Ely were declared co-senior champions after tying Siclare for seventh place at 236.

“I started out the first two days looking like a conservative hacker,” said Ely, who followed an opening-day 83 with rounds of 76 and 77, respectively. Govern shot 83-81-72 for his share of the senior crown.

Dan Wormuth (237), Mike Batey (238), Krick (240) and Rich Meade (240) followed.

The A flight went to a playoff between Delaware Academy teammates Brandon Simonds and Joe Burgin, who each finished at 234. Simonds birdied the first playoff hole to clinch the title. Burgin placed second, followed by Bob VanValkenburgh (239), Doug Simonds (244) and Patrick Simmons (244).

Mike Wagner Sr. broke 80 in all three rounds, following back-to-back 79s with a 77 for a 235 total that earned him the B Flight title. Tom Baudendistel placed second at 240, followed by Bucky Macumber, Steve Hubbard and Rick Eckhardt at 241.

Jason O’Donnell cruised to the C Flight crown with a 240, beating runner-up Jim Truman by seven strokes. Cody Gabriel (254), Jay Sowder (254) and Chad Westbrook (255) rounded out the top five.

Bill Minnick won the D Flight at 255, and Bob Safford took the E Flight championship at 266.
