Bucknell Golfers complete the sweep at NCPGA Senior at Toftrees

Posted on

State College, PA – The NCPGA senior tournament series has seen its fair share of quality golf over its years, however never before has there been a year so dominated by the representatives of one club. The Bucknell Golf Club has consistently seen their golfers atop the leaderboard in one or more divisions of the NCPGA senior circuit and today was no different. For the third time this season the four division winners represented the Lewisburg club.

Al Kline Jr. found himself tied for first in the 50-59 year old division with eventual seasonal points champion Randy Lynch of Mill Race GC. Both players carded three over par 75’s to finish six shots clear of their nearest competition, Bruce Hoover and Rick Everett of White Deer and Belles Springs GC respectively.

The 60’s saw Tim Harpster make it a perfect 6 for 6 in victories as he carded an even par 72. Harpster’s level round was enough to keep him three shots better than the host clubs Terry Cooper’s 76. A pair of 79 rounded out the top three places in the division as Bucknells Steve Allen and David Maier posted identical rounds for third.

Tom Egli’s 77 led the way in the 70-79 year old division. Egli was pursued by a trio of Bucknellians as Jim VanBuskirk posted an 80 for second place and eventual points champion Gary Fry and Marvin Reeves carded 82 in a tie for third with Nittany CC’s Chuck Colyer and Lost Creek’s Al Kline Sr.

Boyd Mertz continued his dominance of the 80 and older division posting a 93 and a seven stroke victory over John Hirsch of Eagles Mere CC.

The season long points race came to a close today as all players who earned enough points throughout the season to be in the top four competed for the “points championship”. The 2014 points championship breakdown is as follows: 50-59 year old division champion-Randy Lynch, Mill Race GC, 2nd place-Al Kline Jr., Bucknell GC, 3rd Place-Ben Cook, Bucknell GC; 60-69 year old division champion Tim Harpster, Bucknell GC, 2nd place-John Pagana, Susquehanna Valley CC, 3rd Place-Chuck Colyer, Nittany CC; 70-79 year old division-champion Gary Fry, Bucknell GC, 2nd Place Al Kline Sr., Lost Creek GC, 3rd Place Dick Williamson, Bucknell GC; 80 & older division-champion Boyd Mertz, Bucknell GC, 2nd Place John Hirsch, Eagles Mere CC, 3rd Place Irv Levy, White Deer GC.
