35th Connecticut Senior Open

Shennecossett Golf Course to host for 20th consecutive year

The 35th Connecticut Senior Open was played at Shennecossett Golf Course for the 20th consecutive year on Monday and Tuesday, July 17th and 18th.  Jim Elliot walked away with the win after defeating Billy Downes in a playoff.

Clifford Blanchard of Warwick, R.I., had seven birdies and one bogey in a closing 65, which was a tournament record in the 35th annual event and one off the course record shot by amateur Blake Morris three years ago while playing with tennis Hall of Famer Ivan Lendl. Blanchard tied for fourth at 140 with Kirk Hanefeld of South Hamilton, Mass., who shot 71.

Dave Szewczul of Farmington shot 69 for 144 to tie for 12th and share low amateur honors with Jim Romaniello of Stamford, who shot a second 72. It was the seventh time that Szewczul, the 2010 champion, won or tied for the low amateur title.
