Four-Ball Finish as Guetz as it Gets

July 16-17, 2001, Riverdale GC

by Colorado Golf Association - 7/17/2001

Both the Open and Senior Division of the CGA Four-Ball Championship required playoffs to determine the champions at the Riverdale Dunes Golf Course. And in both divisional playoffs, it was a member of the Guetz family who sunk the winning putt. In the Open Division, three teams tied at 129 to force a playoff for the title. On the first playoff hole Bret Guetz sunk an 80-foot birdie putt to win the championship with partner Joe Liley of Lakewood Country Club. In the playoff they beat the teams of Marty Jertson and Nolan Martin of Gleneagle Golf Club, and Ben Portie of Hyland Hills and Matt Zions of Flatirons Golf Course, who tied for second place. The team of Erik Billinger of Legacy Ridge Golf Course and CGA Match Play champion Shawn Wills of The Ranch Country Club tied for fourth at 131 with Blake Mastalir and Andy Connell of Denver Country Club.

In the Senior Division, Bret's father Mike Guetz of Columbine Country Club sunk a birdie putt on the third playoff hole to earn the title with partner Bert Welz (also of Columbine). They won the playoff against the team of Roger Gunderson of Heather Ridge Country Club and Chuck Melvin of Ute Creek Golf Course, who tied them at 130 at the end of regulation. Third place was captured by Mark Achziger of Greeley Country Club and Jim Pierce of Pinery Country Club at 133.
