Overbrook GCís Ray Thompson takes
48th Senior Amateur Championship title

  ALLENTOWN, Pa.ĖRay Thompson of Overbrook GC entered the stateís elder circuit with a dominant victory over a strong field in the 48th Senior Amateur Championship presented by Your Pennsylvania Toyota Dealers on Tuesday at Lehigh CC (par 70, 6,486 yards).

  Thompson, 55, of Drexel Hill, Pa., finished the two days and 36 holes in a spectacular 6-under par (136 total). Paul Schlachter of The Club at Nevillewood, the defending champion, placed second at 3-under par and Andy Thompson of Overbrook GC, Rayís older brother, finished in third at 1-under par.

Tom Paul presents Richard Smith
of Philadelphia CC with the
Super-Senior Division trophy.
  "Itís nice to win a state tournament," said Ray Thompson. "Iíve been working really hard on my game for five years and Iím finally starting to see the results."

  Ray Thompson opened the second round with a three-shot lead on brother Andy and Ed Chylinski of Chester Valley GC after an opening-round 66. A pair of birdies and bogeys combined with a push from Andy cut Rayís advantage to one after nine holes. However, Ray responded in style on the back side, carding birdies on No. 11 (par 5, 501 yards) with a smooth 4-iron from 218 yards to 15 feet and two putting, and a 6-iron on the par 3, 184-yard 13th to four feet. He would par the final five holes for the victory.

  "That birdie on 13 turned out to be huge because it gave me a cushion," said Thompson. "It allowed me to par my way in."

  Schlachter, 58, of Bridgeville, Pa., the top-ranked senior in the Golfweek rankings, did his best to surge into contention after a rough beginning. He bogeyed the opening two holes after a pair of poor second shots but responded with three birdies on holes 4-5-8 to make the turn at even par for the championship. He stood four shots back of Ray Thompson at the time. Schlachter continued to grind away and birdied No. 13 (par 3, 184 yards) with a 6-iron to 20 feet; No. 15 (par 4, 369 yards) with a 7-iron to four feet and No. 16 (par 3, 177 yards) with a 6-iron to six feet.

  The round may have been just the beginning for Schlachter. Heís focused on fundamentals, lately, and thatís led to some uncharacteristic struggles.

  "Iíve been playing my swing instead of playing golf," said Schlachter. "Iím to the point Iím kind of doing it decently on the range but havenít got it to the course yet."

  Schlachter finished his second round in 4-under-par 66.

  Andy Thompson, 58, of Marple Newtown, Pa., pressed his brother with a 2-under-par 33 on the front nine behind birdies on Nos. 5 (par 4, 398 yards) and No. 8 (par 4, 381 yards), but fell back with two bogeys and no birdies on his inward side.

  In the Super-Senior Division, for players 65 years of age and older, Richard Smith of Philadelphia CC posted a second-round 72 to finish at 1-over par for the two days and three strokes ahead of the field. The victory was Smithís second Super-Senior Division title. He also captured that championship in 2004 at Saucon Valley CC. Smith has finished second the last two years.

  "I won it three years ago at Saucon Valley so itís nice to win it again," said Smith, 70, of Villanova, Pa. "I played solid all week. I had no double bogeys and I missed only one fairway over the two days."
