Harpster Takes NCPGA Title at Williamsport Country Club

Posted on

Williamsport, PA–Tim Harpster of Bucknell Golf Club once again came away with the low round of the day at Williamsport Country Club. The NCPGA found a cooler day than what the area had been experiencing and the turnout saw 87 players take on the course. In the end Harpster edged out Jeff Ranck Sr., also of Bucknell Golf Club, by a shot. He was just one over par on the day. Harpster played very consistently making just four bogeys on the day. His birdies came on 4, 6, and 11. Ranck came out the front nine shooting two shots better than Harpster, but his lead slipped away on the back nine.  Brian Knepp of Shade Mountain Golf Course and Dave Bower of Williamsport Country Club finished in the top four of the 60-69 age division.

In the younger 50-59 age division, Gary Dolan of Belle Springs Golf Course, had a similar front nine holes to Harpster finishing those with a 37. Dolan had a 76 in all. He played a stretch 11 holes at even par, but hit a bump in the road as he took a double bogey to end the consistent run. Tim Jordan of Shade Mountain Golf Course was just two behind with a 78.  There was also a tie for third in this division between Al Kline Jr of Bucknell Golf Club and Todd Trexler of Belles Springs Golf Club at 79.

The 70-79 division saw Dale Bievenour of Honey Run Golf Club finish one stroke ahead of Richard Williamson of Bucknell Golf Club, 78 to 79. The difference came from the front nine holes where Bievenour had 38 and Williamson 42. The top five was closely contested with Robert McNutt of Eagles Mere Country Club in third at 80, Gale Reish of Bucknell Golf Club in fourth with 81 and Gary Fry of Bucknell Golf Club in fifth with 83.

Pete Reasner of White Deer Golf Complex won the 80 and older division with a 89.

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.
