Van Stemple Wins Inaugural LoCo Open at Westpark

Van Stemple was crowned the champion of the Inaugural LoCo Open Amateur Championship at Westpark Golf Club, with a two day total score of 153.  Second place in the championship flight went to Rex Close, at 161.   Mike Lucchino placed third, finishing at 165.  Jonathan Ford won the first flight, Butch Parish took the honors in the second flight, and Bobby Stowers claimed the title in the third flight.

The two day tournament was organized by PGA Head Professional Michael W. Elias Sr (yes, that’s my husband!) and was proudly sponsored by LoCoMusings.  Proceeds from the event will be donated to support junior golf initiatives in Loudoun County, a cause near and dear to both of our hearts.

The tournament included two days of golf, lunch, a Saturday shootout sponsored by Cheers Sports, won by Nigel McWilliam, closest to the hole contests sponsored by Mid Atlantic Settlement Services, and a Sunday putting contest.

Flights were determined by Saturday’s scores; here are the final results:
