Andrew Carr of Winthrop led the field in the 2021 Men’s Club Championship at Bear Creek Golf Course.
Carr paired an even par 72 with a two-over 74 to edge Brad King for the title. King hung around close as the two were paired in the final foursome, but Carr put together a magnificent drive on the 513-yard par 5 18th hole with a mostly blind approach shot that stopped less than 3 feet from the hole. Carr tapped in the putt for an eagle that clinched the win.
Sandy Mackie of Winthrop took the honors in the net handicap competition, with Ash Court earning the runner up spot. Closest-to-the-pin honors went Saturday to King and Court. Sunday’s winners were Rob Sigler and Lloyd Ritchie.
“The weather was perfect,” said Men’s Club board member King, who doubled as the tournament director. “There was some great scoring in both the scratch and handicap divisions, and the course was in fabulous condition.”
The Bear Creek Men’s Club continues its 5 p.m. Wednesday night games through September, with a time change to 4:30 p.m. around mid-month. Visitors are invited to stop by and play.
