Betz & Emery Take Players Championship Titles

After winning in 2012 at Old Warson CC, Betz backed up his title firing back to back rounds of 3-under par 69, to finish at 6-under par which was good enough to edge JC Anderson by a single stroke. Anderson, fresh off his trip overseas and play in the PGA Cup Matches came up just a bit shy finishing his second round at 2-under par 70, one stroke off Adam's pace. Bob Gaus of Tower Tee GC, entered the final round as the leader, came in the afternoon at even par and finished tied for 3rd with Brian Fogt. The finish was good enough to lock up the Regular Player of the Year Title for Gaus. Shane Blankenship rounded out the top 5.
Larry Emery of Crab Orchard GC, had to play a couple extra holes to earn his top spot. At the end of 18 holes, Larry and Bob Gaus were tied at 4-under par 68 and headed out to #17 for a sudden death playoff to determine the champ. After tieing the first 2 playoff holes, the pair went to the tough 434 yard 10th hole where Emery made par to earn the title. The rest of the top 5 in the Senior Division was JC Anderson (69), Brian Fogt (71), and Jeff Whitfield & Rob Sedorcek tied for 5th at 72.
