Kornowa opens door and Yeager squeezes through to again capture Metro Championship Scratch Division, Ernst coasts to victory in Net Division-Results now posted.
Kevin Kornowa has played strong all season and was in position to capture the Metro Championship crown, held at Woodlawn and Detwiler golf courses this past weekend--- all in his first season on the Metro circuit. After shooting a fine 4-under 67 at Woodlawn on Saturday and making the turn Sunday at 1-under, Kornowa was able to maintain a 3-shot lead over Tom Yeager who was lurking for an opportunity to close the gap. Yeager, who has won this event several times (including shooting 63 at Detwiler a few years ago) was able to take advantage of a rare Kornowa breakdown when Kornowa doubled 12 and bogeyed 13 and 14, allowing Yeager to tie for the lead (Yeager also bogied 14). Kornowa birdied 16 to regain the lead and was in position to win on 18, but 3- putted from the fringe for par while Yeager made birdie. Kornowa (67,73) and Yeager (70, 70) finished with 140 totals.
