2013 NewWave 2-Man Scramble
Champions: Grant Williams (L) and Wade Thompson after their 3 hole playoff win.
Thompson and Williams win first Major Tournament of 2013....
Having played together since at least 5th grade, it only seemed natural to see them playing together at the NewWave Communications 2 Man Scramble the weekend of May 18/19, 2013. Wade Thompson and Grant Williams won the Championship Flight of the tournament after a harrowing 3 hole playoff. They were one of three teams tied for the lead after regulation at 22 under par. The other duos were Chase Emge/Kellon Higginson & Mike Blackburn/Mitch Finnin.
The tournament ended on #15 at Mt. Carmel when Thompson and Williams birdied the hole when the other teams made par. Thompson and Williams were part of the 2010 Class A State Champions for the Mt. Carmel Golden Aces.
A Flight was won by Tom Meeks and Robert Leary
B Flight was won by Matt St. Ledger and Kent Reid
C Flight was a tie with Randy Beyke/Dan Schonert & Andy Heuring/Mike Harding
D Flight was won by Dave Queen and Terry Queen
This was the first year in many that had a D flight as the tournament had many more golfers than in past years.
The next tournament is the Mt. Carmel Amateur on June 15 & 16, 2013. Sign up is now underway - call the proshop to get your tee-time.
Wade Thompson captures 2013 Amateur.......
The rain didn't affect the outcome of the 2013 Amateur Tournament the weekend of June 15 & 16 as Wade Thompson, the leader after day one with a blistering 5 under par 66 held off the charge of Rob Dean and Tucker Guisewite, took the Championship Division with a 6 under total of 136. Dean and Guisewite tied for 2nd with 138. A Flight Champion was Steve Potts - 145 (73/72). B Flight Champion was Matt Monroe - 146 (77/69). C Flight Champion was Dwight Seals - 152 (81/71) who won in a 2 hole playoff over Gage Iles. D flight Champion was Mitchell Schoenheit - 169 (89/80). Wade won the first Major of the year also with teammate Grant Williams in the 2-Man Scramble in May.
Thanks to Rick Bobbitt, Tim Woodsmall and the entire Golf Course staff for a great tournament on a great course!
2-Man Shamble Champions........
It took an extra 4 holes to proclaim the winner, but Chase Emge and Ryan Bobbitt claimed their 3rd championship in the 2-Man Shamble on Sunday, July 28. After regulation, Bobbitt and Emge were tied with Tucker Guisewite and Sean Donahue at 22 under par. It took a 4 hole playoff before Emge and Bobbitt birdied to win the title. The tournament has been in existence for 4 years and continues to grow in popularity. For complete results and pictures of the tournament, see the 2-Man Shamble page by clicking the link at the left.

Aces Golf Teams all do well in Post-Season......
Two Lady Aces make it to State Tourney!..
The golf season ended for the Aces golf teams after both advanced in the IHSA Tournament Series.
In Boy's Golf, the Aces finished 3rd in their Class AA Regional at Marion - good enough to advance them to the Sectional Tournament. However, at the Sectional they finished 5th and had no individuals advance to the State Tournament.
In Girl's golf, The Lady Aces finished FIRST in their Class A Regional at Mattoon. They then advanced on to the Sectional at Effingham Country Club where they finished 4th by one stroke to Eldorado. Only the top 3 teams advance to the state tournament. Eldorado went on to finish 4th at the State Tournament too, so the Lady Aces had a great showing.
2 individual Lady Aces advanced to the IHSA Class A State Tournament at Red Tail Run Golf Course in Decatur, IL. The 2 day tournament finished with both girls tied for 16th out of the 110 golfers playing.
What a great year for Aces Golf!!!!!!
Coach Karin Kelsey goes over tee times for the State Tournament at Decatur with Sophomores Abbey Leighty (L) and Emma Kieffer (R). Both girls had great showings at the State Tournament and tied for 16th out of 110 golfers. They were both only 5 strokes from being named All STATE. Way to go Abbey and Emma - and great coaching Coach Karin Kelsey and Coach John White.
