Powell Golf Club hosts club championships

Posted

Powell Golf Club held its annual club championships over the weekend, with dozens of golfers competing in different divisions.

West Hernandez won his second straight championship in a playoff, besting Ryan Tobin. Hernandez — who fired a 71 on Saturday and a 77 on Sunday — two-putted for a birdie on hole 10 to win in a playoff.

Tobin (74-74) had a short putt on the final hole of Sunday’s second round that would have won him the tournament, but he couldn’t convert, forcing the playoff.

Erika Cook, a Lovell High School sophomore, won the ladies’ club championship, finishing at one-under-par (71-72). Her gross score of 143 was 29 strokes better than second place Kami Scott (89-83). Cook also broke the Powell Golf Club ladies’ course record two weeks ago, shooting a 61 from the sandstone tees.

Mike Bohlman won the men’s senior division, shooting rounds of 75 and 78 for a total of 153. He defeated Jason Quigley (72-81) in a playoff to win the crown.

Shooting a 188, Teresa Eicher was the ladies’ senior champion. Her opening round of 80 on Saturday allowed her to finish three strokes ahead of Laurie Lee (83-88).

Donald Hardy won the super senior men’s division with a 80-81, besting runner-up Craig Evans (85-86) by 10 strokes. 

Net champions were Kenny Parker (men’s regular), Quigley (men’s senior), Bob Mason (men’s super senior), Kelsey Tobin (ladies’ regular) and Laurie Lee (ladies’ senior).

This week, Powell Golf Club will look to win the Big Horn Basin Interclub Championship for the third year in a row, with 16 golfers representing the club. Powell enters the weekend holding a 15-point lead from its matches earlier this year.
