Rub of the Green: Men’s city tournament begins, finishes with champs battling

The WTHI Men’s City Golf Tournament began with a bang during the first round when 15 players shot scores of par or better, but by the time the final nine was being played it was a pair of six-time city champs matching shots down the stretch for the title.

A large gallery watched Ted Kaperak, who held a one-shot advantage over Tom Jones, hit a thin second shot on 18. When the ball skipped across the water and settled in a greenside bunker, it appeared that Jones might tie or even win with a birdie.

Kaperak then hit a nice blast from the sand that ran downhill about 10 feet past the pin. Jones’ second had rolled 10 feet past the pin, just off the green, but situated between two clumps of grass. When Jones chip was well short of the cup, both two putted for bogies and Kaperak had notched his seventh city championship with a one under par 297, whereas Jones matched par with 298.

There were other players who made spirited runs on the final day. Troy Farris was third, just two swings behind Kappy with one over 299. Charlie Kluesner, a recent Oakland (Mich.) University graduate, and a four year member of their golf team, tied with long hitting Stu Johnson for fourth with 290s. Both were in contention during most of the final nine.

Others who bettered the 300 stroke plateau included Scott Hess, Dave Brown, Jim Winning, Chris Cassell, Don Alumbaugh and Chris Keen.

Kudos are in order for outgoing Terre Haute Golf Association president, Craig Miller, who did an outstanding job in administrating this season’s tournaments.

At the annual THGA. dinner, Chris Keen was elected to another term as president for 2008. Keen was also THGA. president in 2006.



Brothers, Dave Alumbaugh and Don Alumbaugh, golf course superintendents at Hulman Links and Rea Park respectively, along with their maintenance crews deserve a 21 gun salute for the hard work they have contributed during the past, long, hot summer.
