In a playoff at Sunnehanna, Sean Knapp defeated three others, Joe Corsi, Hannastown, Gregor Meyer, Pittsburgh Field Club, and defending champion William Smith, Chambersburg, to win the 16th Pennsylvania Mid-Amateur. The four tied at 143, three over par. Altoona’s Artie Fink was next at 144 with 74-70.
Knapp earlier this season won the Pennsylvania Public Links, while Nathan Smith won the Jay Sigel Match Play and the Pennsylvania Amateur. Justin Smith won the Open, Paul Schlachter won the Senior Match Play, Dave DeNezza won the Senior Am Stroke Play, and Margaret Pentrack won the Women’s Amateur. Golfers from Western Pennsylvania won every state title this season except the junior, the most impressive showing in history.
