Teens win men's, women's city golf titles

Complete 36-Hole Scores

October 21, 2012

A couple of teenagers won the Championship and women's flights of the 24th annual Cape Coral City Championship golf tournament on Sunday at Coral Oaks Golf Course.

Gina Falvey repeated as women's champion and Jonathan Lowrey shot a second-round 2-under-par 70 to win the men's championship flight.

Falvey, a senior at Oasis High School, won her district championship title on Monday at Port Charlotte Country Club. On Monday, she will play for the regional championship.

"I love it here (at Coral Oaks)," said Falvey. "They've always taken care of the juniors here."

It was easy to see her enthusiasm for Coral Oaks. After her round was over she stayed to help gather and record scores in the men's flights.

Lowrey, a 2012 graduate of Fort Myers High currently enrolled at Edison State College, played in his first City Championship. He won the individual district title last year, and plans to play in the Southwest Amateur tournament next month.

"I hit a lot of greens today," Lowrey said.

Lowrey had four birdies for the day along with two bogeys. On the 18th, he chipped in from just off the green to finish with a two-day total of 143.

Three-time City Champion and current PGA player George McNeil is a friend of Lowery's.

"He (McNeil) has helped me a lot. Just yesterday he reminded me that he had won this tournament three times," said Lowery.

Of the five men's flight leaders and the two-section leaders of the women's flight - seven people in all - four of them won first place.

The women's flight along with men's D and C Flights were completed earlier in the day.

Flight C winner was Bob Prout, who won in a sudden death playoff over Chris Spoone. The women's net winner was Violet Ney.

In D and A Flights, Norm Gagne and Jeff Straus, respectively, held onto their first-round lead. Gagne won by two strokes and Straus by three.

Straus was pleased with his performance this weekend, and also with the overall results in his Flight.

"I shot a smooth 32 on the front nine, so I was quite a bit ahead." he said. "Then I shot 3-over for the final two holes."

In the end, he shot an even-par 72 for a two-day total of 146.

The three other A Flight places (2nd through 4th) were won by members of his group - Mike Christianson, Mark Ludden and Rick Koenigs.

"We don't have a name for ourselves, but we've been playing together every Saturday for the past 20 years," Straus said.

From group from Minnesota that brought five players to the tournament, two took home awards. Former NFL runningback Ted Brown won the lowest senior award in A Flight with a 151, and Glenn Stubbs did the same in the B Flight with a 169.

In B Flight, Dee McLelland shot an 80 for the second round to win by two strokes. McLelland starting playing golf about 15 years ago, and one of the first tournaments he played was at the City Championship.

"I didn't have a handicap or even clubs," he said. "So I had to ask a friend for clubs and for an evaluation so I could play here."

McLelland is a sponsor for the tournament, and has been playing every year since. Now a resident in Fort Walton Beach in the panhandle he and his wife make the trek every year.

"We plan our year around this tournament. Allen (Manguson) and the staff have been fantastic," he said. "This is the best, well-run tournament I have ever been a part of."
