Congratulations Skip Berkmeyer – Town & Country MGA Player of the Year (this is his sixth time)
As most of you well know, Skip has a very strong successful history competing in MGA events, and this year is no different.
In May he and his partner Hunter Parrish, Columbia won the Jefferson City CC Four Ball in a playoff against Wayne Fredrick/Kory Bowman and Brad Nurski/Matt Thrasher.
Berkmeyer, a past Amateur Champion (1999, 2009, 2011 and two time runner up 1998, 2008, 2012) gets a life time exemption for playing in the Amateur. He still has it! He made it to the semifinals when he lost in a match to Maxwell Kreikemeier, Chesterfield 4 & 2.
He won the MGA Stroke Play Championship for the third time! (2013 and 2016) In July, and during the pandemic a field of 156 amateurs traveled to Norwood Hills CC in St Louis for a 72 hole stroke play event. Skip won (68/71/69/63 271) by 4 shots over Ryan Sullivan, Arnold.
Then his final MGA point competition of the season he finished T-4 in the Mid-Amateur Championship at Jefferson City CC with Brad Nurski, St. Joseph and Corey Choate, Eureka. Two-time champion Adam Pfeiffer (2018) won with a score of -9 under par. Berkmeyer has won the Mid-Amateur a total of three times (2000, 2002, 2003)
Berkmeyer has a couple years yet to play in the Amateurs before he starts playing in the Senior events. We can’t wait!
