DSGA/GAP Super-Senior Championship: Newark

Wagenschnur leads after 18 holes in Super-Senior Championship

| Scorecards |

NEWARK, Del. – It was a nice start for one of the home club’s own Monday at Newark Country Club (par 71, 5,753 yards).

Alan Wagenschnur led the way to open up the DSGA/GAP Super-Senior Championship with a 2-under 69.

The newly-minted Super Senior at 65 years old carded four birdies en route to the overnight lead. A chip-in birdie on No. 8 (par 3, 180 yards) was the day’s highlight.

“It’s such a big edge to be at your home course. A lot of the normal guess work that comes with tournament play goes away, says Wagenschnur, of Middletown, Del. “I know what club to hit, how the greens break. I just kept it in play.”

Wagenschnur holds a two-stroke lead heading into tomorrow’s final 18 as Mike Moser (Kennett Square Golf & Country Club) and Raymond Pawlich(Little Mill Country Club) sit at even par. Round Two begins Tuesday at 8 a.m.
