Local Knowledge Proves Important as Rod Kennedy and Leon Smith Claim Titles at Lewistown CC

Posted on

Lewistown, PA – A beautiful day welcomed the North Central Pennsylvania Golf Association’s third Men’s event of 2017. A total of 31 golfers made the trek to Lewistown Country Club Tuesday, taking home with them some nice scores they picked up along the way.


The 50-59 age group found local knowledge was key as the host club’s own Rod Kennedy lapped the field with an impressive 2 under par 70. Mark Searer of Lost Creek G.C. took second place honors with a 78.

Another Lewistown C.C. member carded the low round in the 60-69
division, as Leon Smith shot even par on the back nine to fire a 76 and lead
the field of 10. James Dalton and Howie Lockett, two more Lewistown C.C.
members, rounded out the podium with rounds of 79. Brian Knepp of Shade
Mountain C.C. held the next best score within a very tight field, notching a
round of 80.

The largest flight was the 70-79 age group. Robert McNutt of Eagles Mere C.C. led the way with an impressive round of 74 after an even par front nine. Richard Williamson of Bucknell G.C. took second with a 76, while Shade Mountain’s Tom Thompson finished in third with a 78. John Pagana of Susquehanna Valley C.C. and Dale Bievenour of Honey Run G.C. followed closely behind with rounds of 80.

The age 80 and older division was headed by Pete Reasner of White Deer G.C. for the second straight week. On hole 17, Reasner holed out from 140 yards for the day’s only eagle, helping him to secure an even par back nine and fire a stunning 78.
