2019 Missouri Stroke Play Championship

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Glen Echo CC, Normandy, MO

 

The final rounds of the 2019 Missouri Stroke Play Championship were completed today at Glen Echo Country Club in Normandy, Missouri. The tournament began on Monday, July 8, with a total of 127 amateur golfers. Players competed in 18-hole rounds on Monday and Tuesday. Following Tuesday’s round, the field was cut to the lowest 50 scores. Those who advanced played in Rounds 3 and 4, for a total of 36 holes on the final day.  

Round 3 began at 7:30 this morning with players teeing off of Holes 1 and 10. Going into the round, Christopher Ferris (St. Louis) was in the lead with a two-day total of 133. He went on to shoot 74 in the third round, dropping him out of the lead. Brad Carpenter (St. Louis) turned in the low score of Round 3 with a 64.

Players took a short break for lunch before returning to the course for the fourth and final round. Lightning in the area caused an hour and a half delay in play early in the round. Live scoring for the final round created a lot of excitement, as the top of the leaderboard was constantly moving.

In Round 4, 2012 Stroke Play Champion, Brad Nurski (St. Joseph) made a huge jump in the leaderboard when he turned in a 7-under 64 for the second time this week. This gave Nurski a four-day, 11- under score of 273 (74-64-71-64). However, he was not the only one to go low in the final round to reach this score. Chris Kovach (St. Louis) turned in 66-68 in his final two rounds to post a score of 273 (68-71-66-68). Jason Landry (St. Louis) also rose to the occasion in the final round with his 67 to match the low total of 273 (69-66-71-67).

Once all scores were final, the three headed to the 18th tee for a sudden death playoff. All three made great efforts for the win, but Nurksi came out on top, making a clutch birdie to his second title of Missouri Stroke Play Champion!

The Missouri Golf Association paid out nearly $6,000 in pro-shop credit to the top 30 places with first place receiving $750. The MGA would like to thank the staff of Glen Echo Country Club for all of their help and hard work throughout the week, creating a great experience for the players. We would also like to thank all of this week’s competitors for making it a great tournament!

Congratulations to the 2019 Missouri Stroke Play Champion, Brad Nurski!
