Griffing Gets First Win

June 8th, 2009

Quinn Griffing from Donald Ross Golf Club found his first win of the season at the second Pepsi/Club Car Tournament Series at The Warren Golf Course at Notre Dame June 8. "It's always nice to get the first win under my belt," he said. "I feel liberated." Griffing's round of 32-34=66 began with a birdie on the first hole. "I decided to lay up with a 3-wood instead of hitting driver on several holes - one, three, seven and 16 - because the driver would put it somewhere I didn't want to be," explained Griffing. That decision to keep the driver in the bag led to a birdie on each of those holes.

Finishing in the runner-up position was Dean Prange of Hillcrest Country Club at 34-34=68. By playing solid golf, he managed to avoid the environmental areas and tall grass that edged most of the holes and left his competitors with difficult shots. Prange birdied every par-5 hole and holed a bunker shot on the par-3, 14th hole to recover from a bogey on 13. "That bunker shot got me back in the game mentally," said Prange. A great up-and-down on the final hole saved par and kept him ahead of Jamie Broce of Clayton who finished third with a 69.

 The final Pepsi/Club Car Tournament Series event is scheduled for August 31 at Prairie View G.C.
