Since its founding in 1960, the Southeastern Amateur Championship has grown to become
one of the premier amateur golf tournaments in Massachusetts. Past champions include
Allen Doyle, holder of two US Senior Open Championships and former PGA tour card holders,
Dr. Bill Mallon, Dave Marad, David O'Kelly and Peter Teravanien. Dubbed the championship
of working men by tournament co-founder Roger Barry, the players compete for MGA
Player of the Year points in this final significant event of the season on the Massachusetts
2015 TOURNAMENT RECAP
Kip Webber matched Don Reycroft's birdie on the par 3 16th hole at Halifax Country Club, and that was the difference in the 57th playing of the Southeastern Amateur Championship.
Webber held on to win by one over Reycroft (71-72 vs 72-72) at Easton Country Club and
Halifax Country Club. Round number 2 at South Shore Country Club never got off the ground due to the coastal storm.
Reycroft settled for the Senior Championship. Dave Pomerico of Poquoy Brook continued his domination in the Super Senior Division, as did Thorny Lea Golf in the team competition.
Weather was a constant force this year. The cut for 50 and ties fell at 81 at Easton Country Club, as the players endured a brutal combination of win, rain and cold. Halifax had no rain, but it was quite windy and very raw.
See final results below. The event is the brainchild of Roger Barry and Fordie Pitts.
