Junior Golf Alliance of NY

May 152017

Before this season, Dave LaFleche estimated he’d won 10 times in 10 years on the ENYGA. Now he’s won back-to-back.


May 10: With 100 players for the second week in a row, the annual event at Queensbury Country Club went to Dave LaFleche. He has now won two straight Eastern New York Golf Association events. It follows USGA guidelines to break ties: Back 9, Back 6, Back 3, then to the 18th hole. All ties were broken by a better Back 9 this week.

Dick Gunning of Town of Colonie shot 76-9=67 for Class A Net.

Other winners: Vince Somaio (Division B), Ted Dralle (Division C) and Jack Porter (Division D). Full results below.
