Elliott wins 2016 Briarwood Amateur

Gene Elliott used a final-round 4-under

68 to move past three players and claim

the 2016 Briarwood Amateur title.

Elliott, who opened with 69, carded five

birdies and a lone bogey to move past

first round leaders, J.D. Anderson and

David Combs (opened with 67). He also

moved past Willis Gaer, who opened

with 68. Elliott finished three shots

ahead of Anderson, who posted 73 in

the final round to finish 2nd. Combs

finished alone in 3rd after a 74 on Sunday.

The Briarwood Amateur is one of the final events for the IGA

Player of the Year standings, so there were many story lines

leading into the final round. The IGA named it’s USGA Men’s State

Team participants following the event. Jon Olson, who carded

back-to-back even par 72’s, earned

the third spot with his finish. He

joined Elliott and Mike McCoy on the

team in Birmingham, Ala.

On the senior side, Dave Gaer won a

playoff over Greg Kramer to win the

title. Both players finished at 4-under

140, only one shot clear of Terry Cook

and Andy Burton. Gaer fired rounds

of 71-69 while Kramer reversed that

with 69-71. Cook shot the best round

of the tournament on the final day with a 5-under 67.

Nathan Stamey carded a 5-under par 67 in his final round to win Iowa

Open golf title at Lake Panorama near Panora.

Stamey, a professional from Blu�on, SC finished with a 54-hole score of

13-under-par 203. That was good for a two-shot margin over runner-up,

Scott Gutschewski of Elhorn, Neb. Stamey earned a first-prize check of


Matthew Jennings of Prairie City carded a three day total of 205,

11-under-par to finish alone in third place.

Stuart Hendley of Midland, Tex. won the Senior Division with a total of

one over par.

On the Amateur side, Jon Brown (72-72-73) of Clive held off Mike

McCoy (70-73-75) of West Des Moines by two strokes to take home

the title. McCoy held a one shot lead heading into the final day of play,

but a three-under-par, 33, on the opening nine propelled Brown into

the lead by one stroke. Both Brown

and McCoy struggled on the back nine

carding 4-over-par rounds of 40; Brown’s

opening nine proved to be enough to

hold off McCoy.

On the Senior side, Bill Manske (70-

73-79) of Algona held off Ron Peterson

(79-73-78) of Urbandale by one stroke to

take home the Senior Amateur title.
