FINAL RESULTS: 2021 OPGA Mid-Amateur Championship


2021 OPGA Mid-Amateur Champion Grant Gates
2021 OPGA Mid-Amateur Champion Grant Gates

The 2021 edition of the Ohio Public Golf Association’s State Mid-Amateur Championship was decided by a four-man playoff that went five holes.

First-round leaders Michael Kelly of Westerville and Derrick Gentile of Howard each shot 68 on Saturday. But on Sunday, both posted 74 to allow some challengers back into the mix.

Josh Vieth of Columbus and Grant Gates of Prospect gladly took advantage, create a foursome at 2-under par for the 36 hole state championship for players over the age of 25.

On the first playoff hole, Vieth and Gentile were eliminated.

Four holes later, Gates made birdie to Kelly’s par to claim the title.
