Two foursomes teed off last Sunday on an absolutely glorious morning at Harborside
on Chicago's South Side. In the first group were former Match Play Champions
Tom Jenks (2012) and Tim Prentiss (2009), along with Tournament Directors Carl Movrich
and George Zdarsky competing in a mini-match play tournament. They were also there
to precede and set the table for the final matches of this year's Match Play
Tournament For NIMAGA Members featuring Larry Goldberg vs. Rick Sigerich and
Bill Olsen vs. Amardeep Sangha competing for the Championship in their respective

The Starboard Course was in great condition, and proved to be a formidable venue
for The Finals.

In the Hogan Match, Larry looked to be running away with the match until Rick got
hot on the back nine be winning five holes in a row. Larry finally closed out the
match 2 & 1 by winning the 17th. Even more remarkable is that Larry was a rookie
participant in this year's MPT. Competing for the Jones Championship, Bill came to
realize what a lot of other MPT participants in the past already knew. That is, that
Amardeep is one heck of a match play warrior, who went on to win his second
Championship in four years.. Amardeep went up seven before Bill, who wasn't feeling
well, had to concede. For what it was worth, George beat Tom on the final nine to
win the mini event.

For their stupendous play over the past five months, Larry and Amardeep each won $140
in NIMAGA Certificates, a Championship plaque, and the gratis round of golf at
Harborside. For finishing in second place, Rick and Bill also got the free round and
a $90 NIMAGA Certificate. Congratulations to the four of them for a great tournament!

Also winning NIMAGA Certificates in the tournament were:

Quarter-Final Winners ($55 each)
JJ Johnston
John Francel
Mike Zicha
David Bradley

Second Round Winners ($25 each)
Brian Alberts
Mark Heinsohn
Wes Stinich
Jeff Lyman
Dan Dorr
Dan Farinosi
Jeff Korkus
Scott Jones

Thanks again to all the participants for another successful Match
Play Tournament For NIMAGA Members. Feel free to reply with any comments
or suggestions to possibly help make next year's tournament even better yet.
Special thanks also go out to Shawn Pipes for all the timely MPT updates
