Playing Together Every Day Leads to Team Victory

April 18th, 2011

Playing together every day has its advantages when it comes to team competitions, and it certainly worked out for Sam Till, Jr. and Marty Rifkin. Till and Rifkin play together every day at their home course of Sycamore Hills Golf Club, and that experience helped them win the IGA Mid Am Team at Pine Valley Country Club Monday. We really played good team golf, said Rifkin. And its always fun to play with Sam because hes so good. The twosome carded a one-over 72 in the best ball format to combine with their even par in the first round alternate shot format and win by one stroke over Gordie Rees and Craig Scheibert and the team of Brooks Snyder and Rick Himes.

Although Till is now a member at Sycamore Hills with Rifkin, he spent 10 years at Pine Valley and won several tournaments while he was a member. Im very comfortable out here, he said. Ive always liked this place, and Ive posted some low scores. Till won a senior club championship title and the 2009 Indiana PGA Senior Open, and finished runner-up at the 2008 Mid Amateur.
