2019 Championship Results
Andrews win 10th Cup, Becomes 2019 Champion
Jason Andrews returns to glory after five years, becoming the 2019 ECMC Club Champion for the 10th time. Andrews fought off multiple surges by the field to overtake the lead late on day two of the Championship. After a first round of 73 (+2) the lead was 4 over two and 5 over one other. The first round cushion was just enough to hold on to the victory despite runs from Vito Ortiz and Dave Riley. Ortiz went out in 35 (-1) on day two, cutting the lead to two shots before running into back nine troubles. Dave Riley had a solid front nine, but could not pick up any ground on Andrews as they both posted 37 (+1) through nine holes. Riley slowly increased the pressure on Andrews as he posted six straight Pars from #10 through #16. Andrews faltered on #10, #13, and #16 to allow Riley to pull within one shot with two holes to go. Andrews was able to save Par on #17 while Riley had his only mishap of the back nine, allowing Andrews to have a comfortable lead heading into #18 sealing the title for 2019.
In the battle for the ECMC Net Championship, Jim Gundy played solid golf for 36 holes with back to back Net rounds of 67 to become the 2019 ECMC Net Champion. Gundy was solid on both days with consistent play, winning by three shots over Ric Wilson, who posted a Net 68 (Gross 79) on Sunday. Mike Zunk posted two consecutive Net 69 scores to place third in the Net category. Forth place Net went to Bob Shank, who broke a tie with Gary Walton on the 1st tiebreaker hole.
