13 August 2000 Richmond, IN Charlie Greenwalt was playing his second tournament on the Great Lakes Tour and he made it count. Charlie defeated Bill Thompson and Gene Reams by one stroke to claim the victory and his first spot on tour. Charlie shot 82, 26-under par.  Both Bill and Gene shot 83, 25-under par for second place. Charlie has played on the Great Lakes Tour in the past, but this weekend was his first tournaments in year 2000 and he made it count.

The turnout for the Richmond stop was a bit low because of the Nationals week just concluding and everyone needing a break from putting.  In the match play finals Jay Hadsell defeated Harry Sykes and secured his second spot for the Great Lakes Tour finals.

In the amateur division, Robin Ventura won shooting a score of 87, 21-under par and defeated former National APA Champion Jeff Brown and Mike Conklin. All three players have 2 spots for the finals so the sopt went to Bill Combs after defeating Bill Wahls in an 18 hole playoff.  In the match play finals Scott Copeland defeated Jeff Brown.

The Great Lakes Tour will play its next full weekend on August 26 and 27 in Mansfield, OH.
