One shot makes difference at RRC

A chip-in to save par on the 35th hole sent Shady Oaks' Dave Kemp to victory Sunday in the Rock River Classic at Prophetstown's Prophet Hills Country Club.

Kemp's par save on the penultimate hole helped him shoot a 34 on the back nine Sunday, and his two-day score of 146 earned him medalist honors by one stroke over runner-up Josh Kunde of Emerald Hill.

Kunde went on to win the Best Against Bogey award with a +16. Kemp finished at +14.

Led by three flight winners, Prairie Ridge of Morrison took home the team title with a +31. It was the only club in positive numbers after Saturday's first round at Emerald Hill, and held off Sunset by eight points.

Jason Welker (First Flight, +12), Tommie Houzenga (Sixth Flight, +10) and late addition Gary Warner (Eighth Flight, -2) were Prairie Ridge's flight winners.

Sunset also won three flights. Brian Anderson (+11) won the Second Flight, Brian Weidman (+9) took the Third Flight, and Nate Bramm (+4) topped the Seventh Flight.

Emerald Hill's Ryan Hurley shot a +4 against bogey to take home the Fourth Flight trophy, while Shady Oaks' Dan Koch took the Fifth Flight in a playoff over Nathan Blackburn after both finished +5 after 36 holes.
