Meadows Golf Club set to host 50th CGA Senior Match Play Championship
By Gary Baines – 06/22/2019
The CGA Senior Match Play hits the big 5-0 this year.
The championship for players age 53 and older will be conducted for the 50th time next week, with the Meadows Golf Club in Littleton hosting the event.
Dr. Dean Barta won the first CGA Senior Match Play in 1970. Champions since then include Colorado Golf Hall of Famers Les Fowler, Ed Nosewicz Sr., Larry Eaton, Tom Reed, John Olive and Kent Moore.
This time, a host of former champions will be in the 64-man field: John Hornbeck (2018), Pat Bucci (2017), Jeff Oneth (2016), three-time winner David Delich (2007, ’11 and ’15), Harry Johnson (2013), Robert Polk (2009) and Moore (2006).
Also scheduled to compete are 2018 CGA Senior Player of the Year — and 2018 Senior Match Play runner-up — Steve Ivan; 2016 CGA Senior Amateur champion Kevin Ott; 2017 CGA Senior POY Keith Atkins; and 2019 CGA Super-Senior Match Play champion Sean Forey.
The round-of-64 matches will be held on Monday. Two rounds of matches are planned for both Tuesday and Wednesday, and the 18-hole final is set for Thursday.
