Clendenin Wins 2014 Summit County Amateur

Howard Clendenin of Seville backed up his first-round 69 with an even better 68 on Sunday to capture the 2014 Summit County Amateur Golf Championship going away.

His 5-under par total earned him a four-shot victory and a continuation of his amateur golf success during the last 12 months.

After making the reversed-nines turn at 1-under par, Clendenin eliminated just about all doubt as to the outcome when he staked his second shot on the par-5 second hole to 3-feet below the hole then canned the eagle putt. Pars surrounded a bogey-birdie trade coming in to seal the deal.

A two-way tie for second place was earned by Cleveland east-sider Niko Anangnost and 2014 Ohio Publinx champ Jake McBride of Hartville, both of whom finished at 1-under par. They were followed by a solo fourth place from Josh Anderson at even par.

Rain plagued the afternoon wave on Day One, but the reverse was true on Sunday as the morning round was delayed about half-way through for 75 minutes. Once the weather cleared, the afternoon guys had a great day of sun and soft conditions.

The Sunday skins pot of $1,270 was swept with a lone eagle-3 on the par-5 14th hole by Alex Talbott. Saturday skins were split three ways, good for $423 ea: Brendon Nixon with a birdie on #10; Nevada Lemon with an eagle-2 on #12; and Doug Flemming with an eagle-2 on #17.

Thanks to Larry Zimmerman and Dante D’Andrea for running another great event, and Dave Chapple and Todd Bertermann for all their work in scoring.
