Belling Wins 19th Annual US Golf Teachers Cup
Dave Belling captured the 19th annual United States Golf Teachers Cup, firing a two-round total of 8-under-par 136 to win his second title. Belling backed up his opening 69 with a stellar 67. He previously won the championship in 2004 playing out of the Open division. This year, the 50-year-old Belling played in the Senior division.
The Open division was decided by a sudden-death playoff between 2010 champion Christopher Richards, Cole Golden, and Mark Startup, who all tied at 2-under 142. Richards sank a 25-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to tie Golden, who had hit his approach to four feet. Richards then won on the second hole with a par.
Bill Hardwick successfully defended his Super Senior title with scores of 73-68 – 141. Hardwick won the overall title in 2012 on the same course.
Florencia de Rolz took home the Ladies title with scores of 84-82 – 166.
