Bucknell Golfers Sweep Divisions at Susquehanna Valley CC

Posted on

Hummels Wharf, PA–Traditionally members of the Bucknell Golf Club make their presence known at the NCPGA summer series events.  Today was no different as each of the four divisions found their champion representing Bucknell as medallist, Jeff Ranck fired a 74 to lead the 60-69 age division as well as all golfers on the day.  Other divisions winners representing Bucknell were Bill Snyder in the 50-59 division, Gary Fry who tied with Dale Bievenour in the 70-79 division, and Dick Beck led the 80 and older group.


Bill Snyder’s 81 was enough to hold off White Deers Bruce Hoover in the 50’s division by three strokes.  Shade Mountain’s Tim Jordan finished well off the pace with a 92 for third.


In the 60-69 age bracket, Ranck seemed to avoid any huge mistakes on his way to his four over par round.  While Ranck ran away with his division, the battle appeared to be for second as Belles Springs Rick Everett bogied the last hole for a 79 but it was enough to hold off  Randy Lynch of Mill Race and George Jones of Frosty Valley by one stroke in the division.


The 70’s were highly contested as Gary Fry and York County’s Dale Bievenour both led the way with 77’s.  It was another Bucknell golfer who posed a challenge as Dick Williamson unfortunately bogied his last hole to finish one off the leaders with 78.  Susquehanna Valley CC representative, John Pagana finished fourth in the division with an 83.


The 80 and older division found Dick Beck on top of the leaderboard as he carded a 90 to lead the way.  Multiple winner on the 2016 tour, Pete Reasner finished four behind Beck as his 94 was one stroke better than Bucknell’s Boyd Mertz who finished third in the division.


Gross and net prizes were awarded to the top finishers in each division. The NCPGA is thankful to be supported by Blaise Alexander Family Dealership, Jersey Shore State Bank and Woodlands Bank.


Today’s event was the eighth of nine on The NCPGA Championship Series.  The tour will make its final stop of the season on Thursday, September 15th at Toftrees Golf Resort, State College,  with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.  For more information regarding the championship series visit www.ncpga.net
