Re: 16th Rosedale Amateur Championships Is October 14
« Reply #30 on: October 19, 2012, 04:33:49 PM »
Thanks to the 88 players who participated in the 16th Annual Rosedale Amateur Championships. I was very proud of the effort expended by almost everybody, especially during the first round when the winds were steady from 12 to 24 mph, with at least four of five gusts that pushed 35 mph. For the many first timers, nearly half of the field, it was definitely a baptism of wind. As the scores show, even experience players found the wind to be troubling.

Other thank yous go the Bob Ward for getting the course set before the tournament and then moving it shorter for the second round. Thanks also to John "JP3" Park for helping with the scorecards. In addition,  thanks to the many people who helped in other ways such as checking scorecards, helping to get us going in the morning, and closing things down in the afternoon. Thanks to Fred Smith, CD Steiner, Dick Parker, and Cooper Arnold for coming out during the second round to offer advice, which I was glad to hear helped some of our players. And finally, a big shout-out to our sponsors, Duffy Carduff of Eagle Products, Peter Engelman of the West Plaza Tomato Company, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club, and Innova Disc Golf. Your help enhanced the tournament experience for all.

It took four extra holes before Steve Thimmesch became the Am 1 race was decided. After the 36 holes of the tourney, Steve and Lee Killian were tied at 104. After the first round, Steve, buoyed by the only ace of the day on number 3 (short right) led by two over Lee and Jeff Campbell. Lee's was the medalist in the second round with a 47. Jeff ended up third, three down.

Brandon Deerr took the first round lead in Am 2 with a 62, one better than eventual champion Ben Patterson. Ben, the Am 3 champion at the 2011 RAC, shot 55 during the second round to edge Joe Pavlecich and Brandon by one throw.

In the huge Am 3 division of 33 players, 18-year-old Tyler Mattoon, playing in his first tournament, shot both rounds under 60 (59-53)  to win decisively by six throws over Andy Portwood. Four throws further down was Corey Owens, who edged Jed Baughman and Chris Blevins by one and two throws, respectively. All these men won trophies.

Jason Hern was eight throws better than Joe Teater in the Am 4 division. RAC veteran Bob Slonka got hot during the second round, shooting 51, to erase a two throw deficit to win by two over defending champion Eric Garberg. In the battle of the grand masters (old guys), Bob Ward, brokered his "volunteer karma" to win convincingly by six over Dennis Smith.

In the Junior division for boys under 16, Caleb Bell fashioned an impressive 18-throw win over twin brother, Cameron, and three other players. This was the largest junior field ever in RAC history. In the ring of fire prize giveaway, Eddie Colbert won the Innova DISCatcher Sport Model. Besides winning his division, Steve Thimmesch also took home $132 for his ace.

On a somber note, best wishes go out to Bill Hecht for a speedy recovery. Bill was feeling slightly ill and very weak during the first round, causing him to withdraw. He eventually visited his doctor, and found out he had suffered a mild heart attack.

The full scores are below. Look for RAC 17 in the fall of 2013.
