Georgetown, KY – A great day on the course to play the final round of the Kentucky Mid-Amateur Championship at Cherry Blossom in Georgetown, KY. Golfers were competing in four flights for the Championship, including the Championship Division for those vying for the main title (who must be ages 25 and over), the Mid-Senior Division for anyone 40 years of age or older to compete for gross and net prizes, the Senior Division for those ages 55-64 playing for gross and net prizes and the Masters Division for those 65 and over trying for gross and net prizes. Round one ended the day with so many close scores, golfers knew they would need to bring their A-games to claim victory!
