The Dayton Amateur Golf Hall of Fame’s 2013 class will be inducted this afternoon at the Kittyhawk Golf Center.
The inductees will be Kay Kennedy, Mike Glendenning, Jim Neff, Pete Samborsky II and Jeffrey Scohy.
Kennedy, who grew up here but has been a golf instructor in Arizona for many years, is believed to be the only Dayton product to play on the LPGA Tour.
There have been some active LPGA players who lived here briefly such as Roberta Albers and Kathy Cornelius but none who was born and raised here.
Glendenning, a golf pro at Wright-Patterson AFB, has won local championships at the amateur and professional levels. Neff, a native of Kettering, also won significant tournaments as an amateur and as a club pro at Meadowbrook Country Club.
Samborsky, a local businessman who has been coaching the Wright State University golf team, has won the Miami Valley Metropolitan Championship five times. Only one other player has won it twice.
Scohy has qualified for more United States Golf Association Championships than any other current player in the Miami Valley. The Bellbrook resident was a three-time Armed Services champion.
The induction ceremonies will be held at 5 p.m. at the shelter behind the Kittyhawk pro shop and restaurant. Those who made reservations will participate in a 3 p.m. reception and have dinner at 4 p.m. The Dayton Golf Commission is hosting the event.
DCC Looking for new pro
The Dayton Country Club is interviewing candidates for its head golf professional position following the resignation last month of Keith Fisher, who held the job for the last four years. The 31-year-old Fisher is now a representative for Adams Golf equipment.
DCC General Manager Jeffrey Grant said the club is interviewing several candidates from Ohio and the surrounding states and hopes to have a replacement for Fisher on the job in November.
CCN team wins invitational
A team from Country Club of the North won the 20th Miami Valley Team Invitational on Tuesday at Greene Country Club.
The competition ended in a tie between CCN and Miami Valley Golf Club, but CCN won the title as a result of a tie-breaking formula that called for the seventh singles score to be used.
Members of the CCN team were: Rik Cramer, Tyson Davis, Ryan Reichley, Derek Hrabik, Matt Claus, Jim Knee, Dave McSemick and Dan Willis.
CCN also won the event in 2010. Walnut Grove Country Club will host the 21st playing of the Invitational in 2014, but no date has been announced.
Scott, Bernard lead in points
It appears that collegians Nick Scott (Kent State) and Michael Bernard (Ohio State) will finish 1-2 in the Miami Valley Golf Association’s Player of the Year competition.
Scott, who won the Miami Valley Metropolitan Championship, received 200 points for that victory, 300 points for reaching the second round of match play in the U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship and 200 for his performance in the Ohio Amateur for a total of 700.
Bernard also received 200 points for his sixth place finish in the Ohio Amateur. He picked up 100 for winning the City match and stroke play titles, 137.5 for tying for second place in the Metro and 50 points for playing well in the U.S. Amateur qualifier. His total is 487.5.
Jeff Scohy and Pete Samborsky are third and fourth in points. Dan Devore leads the senior division in POY points.
