Jentsch captures HMGC Hall of Fame title
Chris Jentsch earned the Hamburg Men’s Golf Club’s Hall of Fame Classic for the 2013 season, following his even-par round of 70. His margin of victory was by one stroke over A-Class rival Joe Williams, while the handicap crown went to Ken Weaver, who shot a net of 67. Other flight champions include, in the B Division, Bob Downey with a 76 and Bob Bleech (net of 64); in the B-2 Division, John Kennedy with an 83 and Roger Flanders (net of 70); and in C-Class, Dan Schaefer with an 84 and Rich Kirchmeyer (net of 65). The most success in the counter-top skins game went to Ken Fierle and Bleech. Up next for the HMGC is the annual 36-hole club championship with Johnathan Snyder, the defending title holder. Last week, Snyder shot a 149 (76 and 73) aggregate, to claim the elite WNY Public Links Class A Championship at the Sheridan Golf Course. An eagle on the 520-yard 17th hole helped provide Snyder with the two-stroke victory.
