2018 Championship Highlights

Frank Vana. Jr. (Marlborough CC), the winningest golfer in Mass Golf history, continued to create even more history on Friday when he captured his record 10th Massachusetts Mid-Amateur Championship title.

The nine-time Mass Golf Player of the Year sent his iron approach shot to two feet on the 418-yard par 4 18th hole during the first sudden-death playoff hole at Plymouth Country Club.

That shot drew cheers from the gallery and set the stage for what would be a winning par over Mike Calef (Pine Oaks GC) and Jack Kearney (Elmcrest CC). The trio all finished with scores of even par 138 following the regulation 36 holes.
