With a beautiful stretch of sunshine spanning the 3-day duration of the 67th Annual Saginaw District Golf Tournament, making up for the torrential rains that forced the cancellation of the tournament back in June, lots of action happened at the Saginaw Country Club making this year’s outing one to remember.

Mike Wenglikowski fired a 6-under 65 on the final day of the tournament to claim his 2nd straight Saginaw District Championship.  It is the lowest score ever shot in the district and 6-under is the most under par someone has ever been for one day in the 67 year history of the tournament.

Alan Pumford won the Senior Champion for the 7th time. (Awarded to the lowest scoring player in the Open Division 50 years and older.)

Ashton DiBlasi is the new 21-Club Champion.  (Awarded to the lowest scoring player in the Open Division 21 years and younger.)

And last but not least, Steve Yockey secured the Legends Champion for the 2nd straight year and 4th time overall. (The 50+ year old division)

On the second day of the tournament, Ashton DiBlasi shot a 4-under 67 to tie first round leader Nick Krattiger at 1-under for the tournament.  Nick shot a 1-over 72 today.  On Saturday defending Champ Mike Wenglikowski was 2-shots back after shooting a 2-under 69, but easily made-up for the gap on the final day of the tournament with his record-breaking round.

Of note, Levi Ralph scored a Hole-In-One on the 157-yard 10th hole. This was the 5th hole-in-one in SDGA History and 4th in the last two years.
