Senior Amateur Championship
September 14-15, 2021
Brian Hall of O’Fallon is the 2021 Senior Amateur Champion! Hall shot an impressive -6 par at Sedalia Country Club. 69/65 134
After the first round Wayne Fredrick (2018 and 2019 MGA Senior Champion) was in the lead with a very impressive -5 par and Hall was 4 shots back going into round 2. He had his work cut out for him to catch Fredrick – Hall couldn’t have asked for more. A flawless score card – 0 bogies and 5 birdies to win! Hall is now exempt from qualifying for the 2022 State Amateur at Bellerive CC.
