Sanderson’s team takes Pro-Am, in playoff

36-hole Sun Valley tourney

It went to the second hole of a three-way playoff, but local teaching professional Tom Sanderson’s foursome won Team Sweeps of the $16,955 Sun Valley Pro-Am last Thursday.

In all, 120 golfers toured Sun Valley Golf Course Wednesday and Thursday in the Snake River Chapter PGA tournament from the 6,846-yard tees.

Sanderson and amateurs Tim Appleton, Mike Murphy and Louis Mallane carded 36-hole scores of 129-128 for 257. They tied with Tad Halloway’s foursome from Cherry Lane Golf Club and Jon Potter’s team from Idaho Falls Country Club.

The three teams split up the first-place money, taking $225 apiece, but Sanderson, Halloway and Potter had a playoff to determine which team won the trophy. And Sanderson prevailed on the second hole.

Finishing in a tie for sixth place of 30 foursomes was the squad of Sun Valley head pro Doyle Corbett and Joe Yarborough, Rory Mitchell and Walter Littenberg. They shot 260 and earned $101.67 each.

Corbett won Senior Sweeps and $469.50 for his two-day total of 75-71 for 2-over-par 146. Sanderson was a couple of strokes out of the Senior Sweeps money at 75-76 for 151.

In red figures were Pro Sweeps winner Kevin Burton of BanBury GC in Eagle (70-69 for 5-under-par 139 and $712) and runner-up Jay Frank of Meridian’s SpurWing CC (71-71 for 2-under-par 142 and $560).

Best round of the tourney, a 4-under-par 68, was fired by John Lewis of Centennial GC in Meridian Wednesday. Burton and Jeff Thomsen of Indian Lakes GC in Boise each carded 69s for Thursday’s final round.

Sun Valley golfers Kevin Cincotta (77-72 for 149-140 and $250) and Derek Jones (71-78 for 149-139, $250) were gross and net winners of the First Flight.
