Deer Run Club Championship
2019 saw another great Championship!
The Club Championships were held at Deer Run on Friday Saturday and Sunday September 27-29. The Senior division was an 18-hole event held on Friday and won by John Filkins with Jim Swank finishing second.
The Youth division, a 9-hole event this year, saw Wade Gooding winning the Boy’s division and Bliss Martin winning the Girl’s division. Wade participated in the 2019 Tri-State Junior Golf Tour during the golfing season and Bliss missed qualifying for the IHSA State Tournament Finals by just 1 stroke. She was the only West Hancock H.S. lady Titan to advance that far in the State Golf Tournament. Congrats to both Wade and to Bliss.
