Adam Houck Wins Evergreen Invitational - Vigotsky, Castagna Capture Senior Divisions
October 15, 2016
Richmond's Adam Houck (The Federal Club) has several top ten finishes in VSGA point tournaments this season, but he captured his first win in the designated events today with a one-under par 143 (70-73) at the Evergreen CC to take the title in the 46th Evergreen Autumn Invitational. Houck's two-under 70 in Friday's opening round was the only score in the entire field in red numbers and gave him a three shot lead over Army Navy's Kevin Dillard going into today's final round. Jimmy Delp (Laurel Hill) and Jeffrey Klatt (Medal of Honor GC) were four back with 74. Houck had only one birdie today, but a steady dose of pars (15 total) gave him a 4 shot lead over Dillard at the turn and the eventual margin of 5 shots over Klatt, who finished second with 74-74-148. Dillard finished third with 73-77-150, while Francesco Romano (Raspberry Falls GHC) finished fourth with 76-76-152. Houck had previously finished fifth in the Bay Creek Amateur, and third in two four-ball events - the Chantilly National Invitational and the Willow Oaks Four-Ball. His 50 points earned by winning the Evergreen Invitational could move him into the top 15 in VSGA player rankings.
In the Senior division, Tim Vigotsky (RTJ) continued his excellent play this season with a five shot victory over Lee Flemister. Vigotsky, coming off a win the the Washington Metropolitan Senior Amateur 10 days ago, opened Friday with 73, two better than Congressional's Ben Brundred, and three ahead of Darrell Lanier. An opening nine today of one-under 35 put him six shots clear of Brundred, and despite a few miscues on the back side, his three birdies on the front and three on the back, including three in a row starting at the 13th, kept him comfortably ahead throughout. His final round one-under 71 gave him a even par 144 total. Flemister had rounds of 77-72-149 for his second-place finish, while Brundred had a second consecutive 75 to tie Evergreen's Dave Prokop (76-74) at 150 for third.
The only real drama in the final round came in the Super-Senior division where Jim Castagna made up two shots on first round leaders Lynn Wessman (Army Navy CC) and Jeff Johns (Dominion Valley CC) with a final round two-under 70 to finish at even par 144. Starting on the back side, Castagna bogied his first three holes to fall even further behind, but then birdied holes 14, 15, and 17 to turn in 36, and holes 6 and 8 on his back side for a 34 and a five shot victory over Johns, who had rounds of 72-75 - 147. Wessman finished third with 72-77.
