Welcome to the Southeastern Amateur

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
golf calendar.

Fitzpatrick wins 2017 Championship

Drama played out in an old fashioned shoot-out at Wollaston Golf Club Sunday as Sean Fitzpatrick (70-76-70) 216 won the 2017 Southeastern Amateur by one shot over Patrick Welch and two shots over John Hadges. The back nine at Wollaston saw a crowded leaderboard as these three plus Herbie Aikens went back and forth. Fitzpatrick made the fewest mistakes to hold on for a deserving win.

The venues of Easton Country Club, Thorny Lea Golf Club and Wollaston Golf Club were stiff tests with very slick greens combining with varied weather conditions (typical New England in October-sunny at times with a mix of strong winds and rain at other times).

The strongest field we have seen in recent years found Easton at its best, with Fitzpatrick, Welch, and Don Reycroft posting 70 in ideal scoring conditions. The afternoon winds picked up at Thorny Lea. Aikens' solid 69 was low. Fitzpatrick’s 5 birdie 70 at Wollaston in weather that had it all (rain, wind, and finally sun) won the tournament for him.

John Hadges (72-74-72) 218 earned the Dick Lambert Senior division title, Jon Fasick (76-72-75) 223 the Fordie Pitts Super Senior division title, and Thorny Lea (John Hadges, Shuvam Bhaumik, Steve Tasho) once again the Ray Bump Team championship.
