Defending Champs, Wojtkun Wright, Eye UGA Mid-Am, Masters Repeat
Greg Wojtkun and Jon Wright, the defending champions of the UGA Mid-Am and Masters titles, are both entered in this year’s tournament set for Thursday through Saturday the 5th-7th of September at Talons Cove Golf Course in Saratoga Springs. The tournament format is for 54 holes. The field will be cut to the low 40 and ties or half of the field depending on final field size.
Wojtkun won the Mid-Am title last year at Victory Ranch by an eight shot victory margin and Jon Wright won the Masters Division for those 40 and over. Wojtkun shot 74-70-69-213 and Darrin Overson was second place at 221 with rounds of 76-71-74. The scores were high because of difficult weather conditions, but Wojtkun didn’t seem bothered by it. He had control of his golf game, if not the wind, and he hit it low and hard and straight and shot one under par.
Wright, who was also the 2012 State Am champion, won the Masters title with rounds of 74-76-73-223 and was ten shots ahead of runner-up Corey Matthews in the 40 and over division.
The entry fee is $160 dollars and includes carts. The top three finishers earn spots in the Utah State Am next year at Ogden Golf and Country Club. Entries can be made by calling the UGA at 801-563-0400. The entry deadline is Monday, September 2nd.
