14 April 2002 - Hamilton, OH - Kevin Lacey of Cincinnati negotiated wet carpets and a very difficult old-time Putt-Putt course to claim the Queen City Classic on the Great Lakes Tour. For the second day in a row, Kevin not only won the tournament but also recorded the low round of the day, a 26 to start the event. Just as the first round was completed, a heavy rain shower delayed play for one full hour.

Kevin returned from the break with a solid 30 on the soggy greens and enjoyed a three-stroke lead entering the last round. Jeff Garrison started the last round four back at 60, but went 9 for 15 to catch Lacey with just three holes left to play. Kevin aced his 53rd hole, the drop-off, to edge Jeff by a single shot with a final tally of 86.

Jeff Garrison was awarded a spot for the World Match Play Championship. Robb Titchell of Columbus finished third at 88.

Paul Johns of Gahanna was victorious over rookie pro Robin Ventura of Cincinnati in the finals of the match play. Paul received his first GLT spot.

For the second consecutive day in the APA division, a first-time GLT winner emerged victorious by leading the event from wire-to-wire. Tim Schrader of New Bremen battled Hamilton Open winner James Weber to the very end to claim the victory by a single shot with a final score of 91. Tim has been playing competitively for just over a year and was thrilled by winning his first GLT event on the opening weekend.

In the match play, Anthony Amick of Canal Winchester defeated Indianas Nate Nichols in the final match to claim his first GLT spot of the season.

The GLT wishes to express its gratitude to Tom and Dan Schuman for hosting the opening weekend on their golf course.
