2016 B&C Championship Wrap-Up


Day Two Notes:


imgMike Dezelan of the host club Point Sebago GC wasn't anywhere near the lead after his first round 86 yesterday in the B&C Championship. He walked away on Wednesday with a 69--the best round of his life--to win the title in his flight. His score of 155 was two better than Riverside GC's Joe Nappi, Jr., with rounds of 79-78--157. In third was Springbrook GC's Trent Murphy on 158.


Dezelan closed out his round in style today, playing the last three holes in three under. It all began with a hole-out from a fairway bunker on the 16th hole for an eagle two, which he followed with a birdie two on the 17th hole. A par on the last sealed the win for him.





The C Flight saw a tighter race than the B's, with overnight leader Jack Welch holding on to his first round lead to win with a two day total of 80-85--165. He beat Portland CC's Mike Francoeur, himself a former champion in this event, by one stroke. Rounding out the top three was Riverside GC's Rick Fortier at 168.


Low net honors in the B Flight went to Val Halla's Wayne Johnson at 139. Low net in the C flight, and consolation for his runner-up in gross, was Mike Francoeur at 138.


The MSGA would like to thank everyone at Point Sebago for hosting the event this year. Many of the players hadn't been to the venue in years and were more than pleased with what they found. Our thanks to the grounds crew and staff for a great event on all fronts.

Day One Notes:


Gary Caiani of Fox Ridge GC wasn't originally happy with his tee time going out in the first group of the B&C Championship this morning, but after turning in the low round of the day with 78, he'll get plenty of sleep tonight, as he'll be in tomorrow's final pairing in the B Flight. Joining Caiani will be Joe Nappi, Jr. (Riverside GC) and Greg Bither (Biddeford-Saco CC). Both players, along with Salmon Fall's Arnie Benner, sit just one shot back at 79. A host of players sit back within three shots, meaning anyone can capture tomorrow's title.


In the C Flight, Val Halla GC's Jack Welch set the pace with an opening round 80, which gives him a one stroke lead over Carl Poirier of Sable Oaks GC. Rounding out that flight's final group tomorrow is Rick Fortier sitting at 83.


Prizes will be awarded tomorrow in both flights for gross and net finishes, which should make for an exciting final round as players lurking behind still have 18 holes to make their move. See the link below for scoring that shows both gross and net scores, sorted by flights.
