Sanderson wins match play finale

Senior winner at Blue Lakes

     Tommy Sanderson, PGA Teaching Professional at The Valley Club in Hailey, is the new Senior Division champion of the $9,000 Snake River Chapter PGA Match Play tournament.

     Sanderson, of Indian Wells, Ca. and Sun Valley, won Tuesday’s final 18-hole match of the 13-player Senior Division 4 & 3 over Fred Luthy, teaching pro at Teton Reserve, Rexburg.

     Enjoying one of his better competitive seasons as a senior, Sanderson played very solid golf both Monday and Tuesday at Blue Lakes Country Club in Twin Falls. He methodically won 2-up, 1-up and 5 & 3 before the championship match final.

     Sanderson’s toughest test was taking out defending champion and host PGA pro Mike Hamblin in the second round 1-up.

     Cementing his “Player of the Year” credentials in the 30-player Regular Division was Ben Bryson, head pro at Eagle’s BanBury Golf Course. He won 1-up Wednesday over Luke Sestero, assistant pro at Boise’s Crane Creek Country Club.

     The Snake River Chapter Match Play Championship was the season’s final tournament. It was contested on the par-72, 6,454 yard layout at Blue Lakes CC.
