Gemmill takes Public Links
and Tompos takes Senior

  HARRISBURG, Pa.- Jud Gemmill of East Petersburg, Pa., battled not only the field, but the tough weather and course conditions to capture his second Pennsylvania Public Links title. A 5-over-par 149 was good enough to earn him the victory at the 69th George Dressler Amateur Public Links Championship at Dauphin Highlands Golf Club in Harrisburg, Pa., (Par 72, 6,716 yards).

Jud Gemmill
  "I never really thought I would win, even after I finished," said Gemmill.

  Gemmill was five shots off the lead after Round 1 and didnít think his Round 2 score of one-over-par 73 was going to be good enough for victory, "I thought I needed to shoot 2 under to have a chance, but I also knew the wind was in my favor for making up some shots. I knew my 73 was a good score in the windy conditions, but I didnít expect to win with it."

  Although Jud Gemmill was five shots off the lead and didnít start off hot, with bogeys on the 1st and 3rd holes, he kept it together and prevailed for his second career Pennsylvania Public Links title.

  Brendan Borst of Pittsburgh, Pa., held a 1 stroke lead after the first day of competition with a 1-under-par 71.

  Senior Amateur Division

  Andy Tompos of Lititz, Pa., carded a ten-over-par 152 which earned him a come-from-behind victory in the Senior Amateur Division of the 69th George Dressler Amateur Public Links Championship.

  Ed Strickler of Huntingdon, Pa., held a 1 shot lead after the first round with a 4-over-par 76.

  Tompos, the defending champion, was thrilled to win back-to-back titles, "It was really self-satisfying. Itís the first time I have ever done it in a high level tournament."

  Tompos came into Round 2 one shot behind his playing partner and leader from Round 1, Ed Strickler.

Andy Tompos
  Tomposí double bogey on the 1st Hole, quickly put him 3 shots behind Strickler for the Championship, but Tompos knew there was more golf to be played.

  "I thought back to a statement Ben Hogan once made in the Final Round one year at Riviera after a double bogey on his first hole. A fan yelled out ĎThere goes the tournament!í. Hogan replied ĎThere are 17 more holes to play.í He went on to shoot 66 and win."

  Tompos didnít shoot 66, but his three-over-par 75 was good enough to earn him back-to-back victories in the Senior Amateur Public Links Championship.
