Chanaud wins Delaware Mid-Open in playoff
It took one more hole than planned, but when all was said and done Monday at Heritage Shores Club (par 72, 6,198 yards), one professional stood atop the Delaware Mid-Open Championship leaderboard.
Bear Trap Dunes golf pro Michael Chanaud birdied the first playoff hole to lift the trophy. After finishing at a sizzling 6-under 66 in regulation, including an eagle on Heritage Shores’ par-5, 525-yard 15th hole, Chanaud jarred birdie to defeat fellow Bear Trap pro Michael Rushin for the win.
Earning the low amateur designation was Alan Lazzarino of DuPont Country Club, who turned in a scorecard of 2-under 70.
Earning the Women’s Middle-Amateur crown was French Creek Golf Club’s Muffy McCabe, whose 14-over 86 bested the field.
