Chris Maxwell Captures Glastonbury Hills One Day Title

Glastonbury Hills CC provided a new and challenging layout for the 128 player field.

Glastonbury, Connecticut (April 19, 2021) - Chris Maxwell has come out of the gates clicking on all cylinders. He began his season with a third-place finish at the Wethersfield One Day and followed that up with a tied for sixth showing at Stonington, now he can add a victory to his hot start.

On a wet, challenging day with temperatures dropping as the day progressed Maxwell carded a 1-under 71 to capture the Tettelbach Gross Division (Under 55) title at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club One Day Tournament presented by Chris Cote's Golf Shop. Maxwell was 1-over at the turn following a double-bogey on the 9th hole but quickly regained his form on the back nine carding a bogey-free 2-under 34 that included birdies on the 13th and 18th holes. 

Glen Boggini played the last four holes in 2-under to finish second at 3-over in the Tettelbach Gross Division, Mike Kennedy and last week's co-champion Kyle Nolin shared third at 5-over while Jason Goshdigian and Rammi Hazzaa tied for fifth at 7-over.

In the Siderowf Gross Division (55 and over) Dave Jones claimed the title for a second consecutive week. Jones figured out the fast undulating greens recording five birdies against four bogeys. One-over after six holes, Jones found his rhythm with birdies on Nos. 7 and 8 before adding additional birdies on the 14th and 17th holes. Jones played the 11-hole stretch in a flawless 4-under to take command of the tournament. 

Rounding out the top-five in the Siderowf Gross Division were Dick Stevens at 4-over in second, Eric Besman and Tom Cutone who tied for third at 5-over while in fifth it was John Svetz at 7-over.
