Super-Senior Championship

Country Club of Ocala - Ocala
April 7-9, 2015

Three Victories at Super-Senior 

Pat Vincelli, of Stuart, went wire-to-wire to capture first place in the 65-69 Age Division. Vincelli, who finished tied for fourth last year, posted the tournament low score, 68, in round one. He got off to a hot start on Tuesday with four birdies and an eagle on the par five, tenth hole. Starting round two with great momentum, Vincelli birdied his second hole but fell slightly behind with bogeys on holes three, four, and six, finishing the day with a one over-par, 73. During round two, Jim Carley, of Ormond Beach, inched up the leader board after firing three birdies on his back nine and posting a one under-par score of 71.

Despite Carley's strong second round, Vincelli remained in first place by five strokes going into the final day. Round three got off to a shaky start for Vincelli after experiencing a double bogey on his first hole. Carley made the turn at one over-par, while Vincelli trailed behind at four over-par. With Vincelli’s overall lead narrowed to three strokes, he finished his final round even par to clench first place by two strokes. Carley played strong on his last nine but could not catch Vincelli finishing with a tournament total 219. This marks back-to-back second place finishes in the Super-Senior Championship for Carley. Dick Clemens, of Tampa, posted an impressive one under-par score on Thursday to finish in third place with a 220 total.

In the 70-74 Age Division, Brian Sachs, of Newberry posted rounds of 75-76--151 to overtake first round leader, Mike Reavey, of Niceville and earn a two stroke victory. Through 27 holes, all three players in the final pairing, Sachs, Reavey and Errol Baxley, of DeLand were all tied at five over-par for the Championship. As the weather heated up and greens firmed out, Sachs was able to put together the best finishing nine of the three, shooting 38, which included a birdies on the challenging par four, 14th, and a closing birdie on the par five, 18th hole.

In the 75 & Over Division, Ron Audi, of Ocala 77-72--149, went wire to wire, but not without some pressure. Audi opened with 77 and held a one stroke lead. Joined in the final pairing by 2014 Champion Joe Eubank, of Daytona Beach and Max Matthews, of Andalusia, AL. Starting on the 10th tee, Matthews would birdie the 10th to tie for the lead briefly, but six bogeys over the next nine holes would prove to dig too much of a hole for him. A trio of birdies on the front side would see Matthews post a second round 74, good enough for a 3rd place finish. Eubank would go out in 2 over, while Audi, posted 1 under on the back and extended the lead to four. Eubank would post birdies on one, four, and nine leading to a two-under par front nine, but event with Audi's bogey on the ninth, still could not catch him. Both players posted, even-par 72's giving Audi the one stroke victory.
