The BCGA Amateur Public Links crowned a champion on July 23rd, which was presented to Bill Schultz. Bill is now a Six-Time BCGA Public Links Champion and is only one win behind Seven-Time Champion, the late Cotton Hirneisen.
Bill Schultz was able to fire a impressive 70-67, -3 total, 137 for a 5 shot victory over Tim Heinly 71-71(142). Bill turned in a strong front nine, but all the while, Tim kept the heat on Bill to make birdies and pars. Bill was able to make several key par putts on the home nine to maintain a comfortable lead and be sure all chasers remain far behind with no chance of catching him. In typical Bill fashion, his humility exudes intimidation and he scorched all entries from start to finish. Congrats Bill. We look forward to your title defense and possible record tying win in 2018.
