25th NCGA Associate Club Net Amateur. Oct. 8-9 | Poppy Ridge GC 72 WINTER 2019 | NCGA.ORG Oct. 15-16 | San Luis Obispo CC D el Rio Golf and Country Club member Jeff Burda announced his arrival to the NCGA Super Senior ranks with a victory. Burda, who turned 65 last March, shot a final-round 3-under 69 to defeat defending champion Gary Vanier by two shots. A part-time Modesto resident, Burda finished with a two-day score of 4-under 140 in what was his NCGA Super Senior debut and first visit to SLO CC. "It feels great to win," said Burda, who notched his ninth career NCGA Senior win, tying him with Jim McMurtrey, Jim Knoll and Vanier for the top spot. "It's fun to play well." Tied with Knoll and Harry Fischer entering the final round, Burda was again consistent, hitting every fairway. He stumbled early with bogeys on the second and third holes but more than righted the ship, going 4 under over his final 15 holes. Helping him along were birdies on each of SLO CC's four par-5's. "I drove the ball really well," Burda said. "When you get those birdies on the par-5's, it helps set up the round." Vanier, the 2017 NCGA Super Senior Player of the Year, went two shots lower for a 70 in the final round but had to settle for a two-day total of 142. Knoll, who won the 2018 NCGA Senior Championship, fell back to a 77 to finish tied for third at 148 with Rich Gleghorn. Fischer came in at 150.
