Siddens Wins T of C in Three-Way Playoff; Stephens Wins Women’s Title

Kirk Siddens won a three-way sudden death playoff to win the UGA Tournament of Champions Sunday on the Gold Course at Soldier Hollow.
Siddens shot an opening round of 63 on Saturday, but fell off to a 73 in the second round which opened the door for Jason Hargett and Kai Ruiz to catch him and force a playoff for the overall title.
That’s when Siddens got sharp again. On the first playoff hole Ruiz hit his approach shot to about 25-feet from the hole and then Hargett almost holed it for an eagle and the ball stopped about a foot from the hole. Siddens duplicated Hargett’s shot and they both tapped in for birdies while Ruiz missed his putt.
On the second hole, (#11) Siddens hit a powerful drive and had only a short iron approach to the par five hole while Hargett was in the rough. Hargett advanced his ball, but short of the green. Siddens rifled his approach over the flagstick leaving him 18 feet for eagle.  Hargett lobbed his shot 15-feet from the hole, leaving him a makeable birdie putt. Siddens left to right eagle putt barely missed on the right side leaving him a tap in birdie.  Hargett ran his birdie putt by on the left side and had to settle for par and a tie with Kai Ruiz for runner up.
There were no playoffs for the division championships. Hargett and Ruiz shared the Tournament Division title and Jake Stevenson and Jeff McDonald shared the Men’s Club Champions Division, each shooting two under par 142. Siddens won the Senior Division and Tom Burt won the Senior Club Champions Division with a72-77-149 tally.
Randi Stephens continued her good play and won the Women’s Tournament Division by six shots. She had rounds of 69-72-141. The Women’s Club Champions Division was won by Marie Bambo with a 150 on rounds of 74-76.
