Wenger Defeats Ford on Third Playoff Hole

Apr 30, 2013

Greenwood’s Justin Wenger defeated a field of 120 after firing an impressive 2-under-par 70 and defeating Ryan Ford in a three-hole playoff at Sultan’s Run in Jasper.

Always visually intimidating combined with today’s wet conditions, the course played difficult but Wenger was able to keep the ball in play and consistently set himself up for birdies.

“I hit a lot of fairways and mostly teed off with my 5-wood today,” Wenger said. “My goal was to keep it in play and not using driver very often allowed me to do so.”

Wenger began the day with his only bogey and completed his round with three birdies coming on the par 5, 6th hole, the par 4, 8th, and the par 4, 14th.

“I don’t think I’ve won a tournament since college, so this feels great,” Wenger said. “I’ve been trying to get back into competing more lately and it means so much to do well in a field with such good players.”
