FINAL RESULTS: 2021 Senior Summit County Amateur


Nolen Jatich, 2021 Senior Summit County Am champ
Nolen Jatich rolls home this par putt in a playoff to win the 2021 Senior Summit County Am.

Four players battled for the title all day long on Saturday at Good Park, each having a solid chance to win the 2021 Senior Summit County Amateur Championship.

Kurt Peterson, 2021 Senior Summit County Am
Kurt Peterson

Bolivar’s Kurt Peterson peppered the pin over and over again throughout his second round, leaving himself a number of 8-10 foot putts for birdie. But he couldn’t get any of those putts to drop. His 1-over par Saturday 72 might have been a 66 if his putter would have co-operated at all.

Doug Fleming 2021 Senior Summit County Am
Doug Fleming

In full contrast, Akron’s Doug Fleming made a bundle of putts on Good Park’s greens. After converting a pair of par-5 birdies after the turn, Fleming took a two shot lead with two holes left to play. But a hooked drive at the penultimate hole found the base of a tree inside a forest of trees, and led to an untimely double-bogey 6.

North Canton’s Nolen Jatich played solid throughout the day, hitting greens and making par after par (along with a spectacular chip-in birdie at the 14th). At the final hole in regulation, Good Park’s ninth (the nines are reversed for tournaments), and with all three players tied for the championship, Jatich stepped up to the tee and stuffed his shot from 198 yards to 8 feet. But he left the tournament winner just on the high side.

Peterson and Fleming both converted their par putts at the last, and it was off to a three way playoff for the championship.

(Playing in the group ahead, Akron’s Tom Skidmore also scored well on both days at Good Park. With a solid front side on Saturday, Skidmore tied the tournament lead after 27 holes. He finished with a pair of 72s and missed the playoff by a single shot. But his sweep of Saturday’s $1,050 skins pot will likely salve the pain of his solo fourth place finish.)

In the playoff starting at the long par-3 ninth, Fleming and Peterson both missed the green left. Jatich went a just bit right, but his solid strike still caught the right edge of the green. Neither Fleming nor Peterson were able to get their chips close, and Jatich rolled his long birdie putt to about three feet above the hole.

Once his challengers both missed their long par putts, Jatich stepped up calmly and rolled home the tournament winner, as seen in the featured photo above.

Jatich’s son Brandon helped his dad as a caddie throughout the day, reading putts and talking through club selections. It was a family victory, for sure.
