FINAL RESULTS: 2022 Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship


Antonio Bodziony, 2022 Cleveland Am Champion
Antonio Bodziony finished with three consecutive birdies to win the 2022 Cleveland Am by five.

Mentor’s Antonio Bodziony, a member of the Lake Erie College golf team, finished with a flair on Sunday at Sleepy Hollow to earn a blowout win at the 2022 Greater Cleveland Amateur Championship.

It was a fairly wobbly front nine by all three players in the final group. 36-hole leader Brett Kaufman of Akron started the day with a three shot lead after a spectacular Saturday 67. But after making a birdie at the first, he made three bogeys and a double to turn in 39 — yet still held the lead.

Bodziony was one shot better than that after his first nine, making a bogey and a double for 38.

Mark Belasic of Mentor began the day in second place and had the best front side of the three leaders in shooting 37, but it was even more roller-coaster still: three birdies, a bogey and a pair of double-bogeys.

Once the final group headed to the tenth tee box, Bodziony turned on the jets. As tough as they are, he birdied both the 10th and 11th holes. Kaufman went bogey-triple after hitting his tee shot OB on the cavern-surrounded 11th and Belasic went bogey-bogey.

With his newfound lead in hand standing on the 12th tee, Bodziony promptly squandered it, missing the par-3 green then three-putting for double-bogeyed to let Kaufman and Belasic right back in the game.

But from there on, Bodziony was brilliant. He blistered a drive and made birdie at the downhill par-4 13th, which Kaufman matched. He then followed that up with stock pars at the par-5 14th and short par-4 15th, while Kaufman made bogey at the par-5.

Then on the final three finishing holes, Bodziony closed perfectly. He hit lob wedge from about 100 yards on three consecutive approach shots, leading to three straight birdies, all from within 8 feet.

The hot finish led to a five shot victory over Kaufman, who in turn finished four shots ahead of third place in Belasic and Dan Metzendorf, who closed with a Sunday 72.

Antonio Bodziony and John Fiander

Bodziony earns a place for his name on the Fiander Cup, as the Cleveland Am trophy was renamed last year after the retirement of longtime Sleepy Hollow pro John Fiander, who was instrumental in growing the Cleveland Am.
