2014 Match Play Tournament finalists

On a cool and sunny morning last Saturday at Harborside on Chicago's South Side, the Finals of the 2014 NIMAGA Match Play Tournament were contested on the Port Course.  Leading up to the first tee on Saturday, both John Lemm (+6) and George Zdarsky (+8) were feeling pretty good about their chances against Dave Dianovsky and Dan Dorr, respectively.  It wasn't meant to be though as they both got outplayed by some really steady and stellar golf by Dave and Dan.  In the Jones Division, Dave Dianovsky led throughout the entire match and finished off former Champion John Lemm on the 15th hole 5 & 3.  Dan, having a career NIMAGA season, was never behind in his match against George nor up by more than two.  The match was tied after 18, and on the first playoff hole, Dan Dorr secured the Hogan Division Championship with a very nice par.

Congratulations to Dave Dianovsky and Dan Dorr for a great tournament!  They will each receive a Championship plaque, $140 in NIMAGA Certificates, and got the gratis round of golf at Harborside.  For finishing in second place, John and George also got the gratis round and a $90 NIMAGA Certificate.

Thank you to Ken Koranda, Doug McKirahan, and Dan Montgomery for joining Carl Movrich in the group prior to the Finals matches.  Carl won the mini-match play.
