Jesse Massie Weathers the Storms to Win at Heritage Hill
SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (September 28, 2020) – A stop and go day at Heritage Hill Golf Club caused by mother nature was not enough to deter one of the Kentucky Section’s top players from his latest victory. Jesse Massie prevailed in Shepherdsville on Monday to win the KPGA Stroke Play Championship; his second individual win of the season.
Massie won on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff against Andrew Stephens with a birdie. Both players shot 69 (-3) and were two of five in their division to shoot even par or better. Daniel Iceman III came in third place with 71 (-1) while Aaron McDowell and Grover Justice finished in a tie for fourth place having shot 72 (E).
In the senior competition, Bruce Oldendick racked up his latest first-place check thanks to a two-stroke victory over Kirk Schooley. Oldendick shot 72 (E) to continue what has been a dominant 2020 season for him in Section competition.
