VanHouse Wins 4 Golfer Race To Repeat SLSP Title

Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Jake VanHouse's summer of golf started and ended the same way.

With a high-coveted championship.

In May he completed his high school career by winning the Section 10 Medalist Championship and on Sunday he geared up to start his collegiate career at Elmira College by securing a second straight St. Lawrence State Park Club Championship.

In true comeback fashion as he bounced back from a triple bogey seven on the first hole to shoot a 39-37-76 and come from three strokes off the first day lead. VanHouse's two-day total of 77-76-153 prevailed in a four golfer scramble over Tom Cobb 79-75-154 , Chris Guimond 79-76-155 and first day leader Chuck Ladouceur who finished at 74-81-155.

Cobb shot the best round of day two with a 39-36-75 and birdied the 14th and 16th holes in a bid which fell one stroke back.

Fittingly VanHouse secured the title in true scramble fashion chipping in for par on the 17th hole.

Guimond birdied the first and 16th holes shooting two rounds of 38 on Sunday. Ladouceur saw his three-stroke first round lead fade on the back nine where he shot 42, with a birdie on the 14th hole, after posting a 39 on the front nine.

Nick Cobb rounded out the top five by following up an 81 on Saturday with an 80 on Sunday for a 161.
