    West Wins Senior Section Championship

SEPTEMBER 25, 2018 - PALM COAST, FL - The champion of the 2018 NFPGA Senior Section Championship is Michael West!
It was a beautiful day on Tuesday with clear skies and a nice breeze.  Course par was still set at 72.  Round two began with an 8:00 AM tee time on the 1st Tee and was complete by 2:00 PM.  Michael West was at the top of the leaderboard going into the second round with 7 under.  There were three other players under par, Jim Giordano (70), Samuel Mula (70), and Bradley Turner (71).

One player in particular moved his way up on the leaderboard signficantly.  At the end of round one, Terence Woodard was T11. With a great start to his second round, Woodard birdied Hole #4.  Woodard continued his move with a birdie on Hole #10.  Woodard finished the back nine with three more birdies and a tournament total 140.  Woodard was in contention for first place and all he had to do was wait for West to turn his scorecard into the clubhouse.

West's round began steady again until Hole #4 where he recorded a double bogey.  This was the same hole that Woodard had birdied.  West went on to finish the front nine well with birdies on #8 and #9.  The back nine, however, had another rough start.  West made bogeys on #10 and #11.  The gap between West and Woodard was closing.  Determined, West finished the back nine with two birdies on Par-3 holes.  West turned his scorecard into the clubhouse where his total was added.  West's total was 139, confirming him the new NFPGA Senior Section Champion.

Other notable moves up the leaderboard in round two were Ron Philo and Cary Splane finishing at T3 and Nick Frontero finishing at 5.  The skin winners for the round were Barry Cheesman (Hole #1), Vince Cali (Hole #7), Terence Woodard (Hole #14), and Russ Libby (Hole #18).
