AINSWORTH WINS ROLLING ROCK - Ainsworth won the 2019 Rolling Rock, defeating Valentine, 20-5, in the annual match play event featuring the top golfers from the two courses. Ainsworth team members are, front row, left to right: Sean Sterkel, Curtis Childers, Nick Martin, Tony Allen and Brett Knoetzel. Back row: Rod Worrell, Robert Magill, Graig Kinzie, Cody Goochey, Terry Allen and Doug Weiss. Not present for the photo was Kevin Martin.

 

Ainsworth recaptured the Rolling Rock from Valentine Sunday at the Ainsworth Golf Course by the largest margin of victory in the event’s history.

Needing 13 points to capture the Rolling Rock while Valentine needed 12-1/2 points to retain, the Ainsworth team won 20 of the 25 points in the annual match play event between the top golfers from the Ainsworth and Valentine courses.

Ainsworth jumped out to a 4-1 lead following the two-man scramble format, increased the lead to 7-1/2 to 2-1/2 with 3-1/2 points in the alternate shot format, shut out Valentine, 5-0, in the best ball format, and won 7-1/2 of the 10 points available in the singles matches for the 20-5 victory.

Next year’s Rolling Rock will be held at the Frederic Peak Golf Course in Valentine.
