Bloomfield, Connecticut (June 3, 2021) – With a 3-under 69 at Tumble Brook Country Club Seth Jainchill picked up his first individual win in a One Day Series event presented by Chris Cote’s Golf Shop. Jainchill was one of three players to finish in red figures in the Tettelbach Open Division one shot in front of runner-up Keith Salamon (-2) and two shots clear of Ethan Casey (-1) in third.
On Tuesday Jainchill, the winner of the 2020 Manchester CC One Day Four-Ball title, played a flawless front nine with birdies on the 3rd, 8th, and 9th holes to turn in 3-under 33. However, the back nine proved to be more of a roller coaster for Jainchill. After a par on the 10th hole, he recorded back-to-back bogeys on the 11th and 12th holes to fall to 1-under for his round. Needing to find birdies on the way to the house he got one shot back with a birdie on the 14th and then finished his round with a clutch birdie on the par-3 18th.
Rounding out the Tettelbach Open Division top-five were Steve Wagner (E) the winner at the Country Club of Farmington One Day earlier in the month in fourth and Russ Bub (+2) in fifth.
In the Siderowf Open Division 2020 Senior Amateur winner Dick Stevens carded a bogey-free 3-under 69 to capture the title. Stevens began his round with 11 consecutive pars before heating up down the stretch. Beginning with a birdie on the 12th hole Stevens jump-started a 3-under sprint to the finish with additional birdies coming on the 16th and 17th holes.
Tom Brett (-2) was one shot behind in second, Bill Hermanson (-1) was third while Robert Barnes (E) and Dave Szewczul (E) shared fourth.
In the Tettelbach Net Division Jainchill finished 5-under one shot in front of four players in a tie for second at 4-under. The group included Salamon, Jason Starkey, Ethan Casey, and Glenn Pelt Jr. Robert Barnes and Eric Besman shared the Siderowf Net Division title at 1-under with eight others sharing third at level-par. The third-place group was comprised of Tom Derienzo, John Svetz, John Higgins, Brett, Brian Kelly, David Warner, and Stevens.
