Mark Tucker fired a 4-under-par 68 to claim the M. Lemp Jewelers Cup at Sodus Bay Heights Golf Club on Oct. 6. M. Lemp Jewelers is a Section sponsor and partner.
The event invited the top 18 Central New York PGA players from this year’s four major championships.
Tucker (Cazenovia CC) edged Dennis Colligan (Cazenovia GC) by a stroke to win the Cup. The pair were tied at the turn at 2-under. While Tucker had two birdies and two bogeys after 14 holes, birdies by Colligan on holes 12 and 13 helped him take a two-stroke lead.
Colligan carded a bogey on 15 and made par on his last three holes but Tucker battled back with two birdies including one on the par-5 18th hole to clinch the title by one shot.
This year’s four majors included:
Golf Max CNY Open (champion Seth Conway (a)
Stroke Play Championship (champion Jeff Reader)
Section Championship (champion Eric Manning)
Players Championship (champion Mark Tucker)
