Peterson, Goin Show Dramatic Flair

Article excerpt

Tim Peterson and Ted Goin have displayed a flair for the

dramatic in reaching the semifinals of the Guess Golf/NYX

Sunglasses Northern Chapter Match Play championships.

Peterson, the head pro at Selva Marina, defeated Ned Graff of

the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club in 19 holes last Wednesday at

Queen's Harbour, rallying from a three-hole deficit with five to


Goin, the Plantation at Ponte Vedra Beach director of golf,

defeated Ron Philo Jr. of the Amelia Island Plantation 2-up by

sinking a 30-foot putt on the final hole.

In the other semifinals, Walter Smith of Heritage Links

defeated Bubba Wilson of Timuquana 2 and 1 last Tuesday at

Wilson's home course, and Mike Benjamin of Pine Lakes nipped

Richie Bryant of Pablo Creek 2 and 1 Friday at Hyde Park. Goin

faces Benjamin, and Peterson will play Smith this week at

courses of their choosing and those four will play 36hole

championship and consolation matches at the Plantation Nov. 15.

St. Johns County in St. Augustine with a 63 during his 6 and 5

Peterson had nine birdies and no bogeys and sank six birdie

putts of 6 feet or longer.

process takes place, courses must close all or part of their

McCumber said it will give players at Westland almost the

entire month of November, at a time when greens are usually in

CREEK RISES -- The Champions Club at Julington Creek won an

inter-club competition last week in Atlanta against four other

clubs in Steve Melnyk's Riverside Golf Group.

The first day of the event had two-man teams competing in nine
