Boland Claims 2024 Kentucky Senior Open Championship

LA GRANGE, KY – Warm weather and fast greens characterized an action-packed final day of the 25th Kentucky Senior Open Championship at Oldham County Country Club. With seven players shooting par or better, the pressure was on first-round Davis Boland and Grover Justice to continue their stellar play. At the end of the day, a champion was crowned. 

Despite the course playing much faster during the second round, scoring was more consistent and widespread. There were 175 birdies made in the round, compared to 143 yesterday. Two golfers, PJ McDougal and Lance Lucas, both broke 70 with matching low rounds of 69 (-2). 

Despite their best efforts, The consistency and experience of Davis Boland proved to be too much to conquer. Boland got off to a blazing start, surging to three-under-par through nine holes. While his lead stretched to five strokes by the tenth hole, the door was left slightly open after a cold stretch on the back nine. A bogey on the par-four hole #13 was followed by an errant tee shot on hole #15 which led to Boland’s only double-bogey of the tournament. After another bogey on hole #16, Boland held just two strokes over PJ McDougal, who was already in the clubhouse with a two-day score of 143 (+1).

With the pressure ramping up, Boland stood confident on the tee box of hole #17 and striped a drive down the middle of the fairway leading to a par. On the final hole of the tournament, he bombed another near-perfect drive. After his second shot ran off the back of the green, Boland executed a flawless chip shot to get up and down and save par. His tap-in putt solidified a first-place finish with a final score of 141 (-1). 

The KPGA extends its congratulations to Davis Boland, 2024 Kentucky Senior Open Champion! 

The KPGA also extends its congratulations to Jeff Van Pelt for finishing at the top of the Super Senior division with a score of 151 (+9).
