The 2016 Primm Amateur Championship is in the books in Nipton, California.
46 players took on the Desert course Saturday, with the final round being on the Lakes course on Sunday.
Ed Fryatt, fresh off winning the 2015 SNGA Player of the Year, shot 65 in the first round to take a commanding lead in the event he won last year. Round 2 wasn’t much different for the former PGA Tour player, who finished off the tournament with a 68 for a two day total of 133 (-10).
Christian James finished in second place with a two day total of 141. James recently committed to play Division 1 golf at University of Utah. Rounding out the Top 3 was Darrell Lutey with a two day total of 143.
In the Senior Division, Steven Fink and John Turk were tied after Round 1 with a pair of 71’s. At the Tournament of Champions, Turk got the best of Fink, but it was a different story in Primm. Fink played a stellar final round, firing a 69 to capture the championship. This Fink vs Turk battle seems to be a story line for the Senior Division in 2016.
The Senior Net Division Winner was Michael Campbell, a new player to the SNGA’s events. Campbell finished with a two day total of 137 Net.
The Super Senior Division continues to belong to Frank Abbott, but not at Primm on Sunday. Kevin Parrish shot 70 in the final round to win his first championship in the Super Senior Division. Parrish is excited about the chance to dethrone Mr. Abbott in 2016. Abbott, with a two day total of 146, finished one shot back.
The Super Senior Net Division Winner was John Kelley, a player starting to come out of his shell in the championship series events. Kelley shot an impressive first round score of 64 net and held on day two for the win.
In the Net Division, Andy Sessa jumped out to a first round lead with a impressive net 65 on the Desert Course, but Brandon Holly caught him on day two for a three shot victory. John Thompson ended up in second place, beating Sessa in a tie breaker.
