Ron Schroder of Seneca posted an impressive three-day tournament total of two-under par 214 to secure the 65th SCGA Senior Champion title. Firing three birdies today and finishing with a final round score of one-over par 73, Schroder was able to maintain the lead from start to finish.


“The day started off very well,” said Schroder. “I birdied the second and third hole and that put me in a good position. I hit my driver great for three days and that really takes a lot of pressure off the game. I was hot and cold with my putter, but all in all it was a fantastic tournament for me. To play three solid rounds is pretty special and it really does feel great to be the champion.”


Eddie Hargett of Blythewood and Chris Koon of Simpsonville tied for second place, each finishing with an overall tournament score of one-over par 217.
