In what might likely be the last Firecracker Open at Lions Municipal Golf Course, it was sent out in stellar fashion with Jake Hendrix firing a back nine in only 28 strokes, en-route to a 10-under round of 61 and a playoff victory over Alex Ellis. Both players finished the tournament with a score of 15-under (198).
Down 2 strokes with 3 holes to play, Hendrix birdied the difficult 16th. A bogey for Ellis on the 17th, allowed both players to head to the final hole tied. Both birdied the 18th to go to a playoff, where Hendrix prevailed. Hendrix’s final round was bogey-free and included 8 birdies and an eagle.
Reid Davenport and Trevor Brown tied for third place at 11-under (202), with Dalton Hankamer and Michael Rome finishing tied for 5th place at 8-under (205).
Jeffrey Hoy Jr. wins the First Flight with an 8-over (221) total, and there was a tie for first place in the Second Flight between Myron Jordahl and Alan Bell.
