Dallas – Players once again experienced great scoring conditions for the final round of the North Senior Amateur. The Golf Club of Dallas hosted this year's championship, in just its second year of existence, and proved to be a good test for some of the best senior players in the northern half of the state. Calm winds and sunny skies let players be aggressive, but in the end, consistent play gave Jim Mundell the victory.
The championship was up for grabs all day between the members of the final pairing. Jim Mundell used a clutch birdie on the 17th hole to give him a cushion heading to the last hole. Mundell’s bogey on the 18th hole gave John Grace a chance to tie, but his birdie attempt slid past the hole. Jim Mundell, of San Angelo, posted round of 71-72 to earn his one shot victory. John Grace, of Fort Worth, carded a final round of even par 70 to finish alone in second place. Lee Sandlin made a significant turnaround from the first round to make a charge up the leader board. Sandlin, of Dallas, used five birdies to post a round of two under par 68 and finish in third place.
In the Super Senior division, Randy Wolff cruised to a seven shot victory. Wolff, of Heath, used a blistering first round of 67 to separate himself from the field and take away all the pressure of the final round. Don Addington fired the low round of the day for super seniors, a three over par 73 to finish in second place.
