August 17, 2012
The local Kernoustie Golf Club recently held its annual Men's Club Championship tournament, and Kernoustie's team had success at the Men's Eastern Iowa Golf Association championships.
In the 2012 Kernoustie tourney, Matt Sargent earned the club championship with a 99. His caddy was his father, Mark. The championship round was 27 holes.
"Matt's fine play was only eclipsed by Mark's superior caddying ability," said Kernoustie Golf Club owner Mark Kerr.
Runner-up was Darin Vig with a 104. Dana Vig finished third with a 105. Brock Slaymaker and Jeff Crow tied for fourth with a 107.
Results from the handicap net division: First flight - 1. Mike Bigley, net 63; 2. Colin Squiers, net 64. Second flight - 1. Mike Kray, net 71; 2. Mike Caldwell, net 71. In the senior division, Colin Squiers took first with a 73 and John Kerr took second with a 74.
The 85th annual Eastern Iowa Golf Association men's tournament was held this past weekend in Bellevue, with nine teams of 12 players each.
Mount Vernon finished fourth with a team total of 1,158. Host Bellevue took the title with a 1,132.
Matt Sargent again excelled, earning medalist honors with a 10-under par 134 in the 36-hole tournament. That crushed the distant second score of 141.
Other Mount Vernon notables were Dana Vig, 147; Darin Vig, 149; Blake Covington, 152; and Jeff Crow, 153.
Kernoustie will host the 87th annual championship in 2014.
