Forey, Miller will square off for CGA Super-Senior Match Play title; both semifinals go to 18th hole

By Gary Baines – 05/23/2019

Then there were two.

After two rounds of matches on both Wednesday and Thursday at Willis Course Golf Course in Denver, the finalists for the CGA Super-Senior Match Play Championship are Sean Forey from The Club at Rolling Hills in Golden and Lonnie Miller from Tiara Rado Golf Course in Grand Junction.

Forey will be attempting to win his second straight CGA super-senior individual championship, having captured the title at last year’s Super-Senior Stroke Play en route to earning the CGA Super-Senior Player of the Year honors for 2018. He was a semifinalist in last year’s Super-Senior Match Play.

The second-seeded Forey was the only player seeded in the top 15 to make the quarterfinals this week. On Thursday, he scored a 6-and-4 victory over Kenneth Tai of Perry Park Country Club in the quarters and a 1-up win over Charles Delich in the semifinals.

Delich birdied the 17th hole to close to 1 down, but the players both made par on 18 to give Forey the triumph.

Miller, seeded 21st in the field based on last year’s CGA super-senior point standings, went to the 18th hole for the first time in his four matches in Thursday’s semis and he defeated Ron Perry of Lake Arbor Golf Club, 1 up.

Miller never trailed in the match, but it was all square going into the 18th hole. There, he carded a par to earn a spot in the title match as Perry bogeyed.

Earlier on Thursday, Miller beat Mark Runyan of Murphy Creek Golf Course, 2 and 1.

Friday’s final is scheduled for a 7 a.m. start.

The CGA Super-Senior Match Play is limited to players 63 and older.
