Consistency is key

Solid round gives Humphrey 2nd Boone title in 3 years

A consistent round of golf Sunday helped Steve Humphrey claim the 65th Daniel Boone Invitational golf tournament at the Frankfort Country Club for the second time in three years.
“Today I had 16 pars, one birdie and one bogey so I was pretty consistent,” Humphrey said. “First two days I hit my driver better than I did today. I hit a lot of fairways and hit a lot of greens.”
Humphrey, of Lexington, shot an even round to finish the tournament 1-over par with a three-day score of 217 (75-70-72), six shots clear of Robbie Davis (223).
Adam Hovermale (227) took third place in a scorecard playoff and Chris Chee (227) came in fourth place. Hovermale was the medalist with the best first round score (74).
Tee Hayden (228), Brian James (229), Johnny Ray Turner (231) and Nick Wilkins (232) were also a part of the championship flight.
Friday’s round was played in the rain and Humphrey was one shot behind Hovermale entering the second round.
He shot the best round of the tournament with a 2-under 70 Saturday to enter the final round with a two-shot lead.
“It was a great weekend and great tournament,” Humphrey said. “I love how they support the tournament. The people gathering all around the green is neat. That’s one reason I like coming back here.”
John Hedrich, of Chicago, became the first winner of Glenn Toyota Frankfort’s hole-in-one challenge since it began 20 years ago. He won a 2014 Camry from the dealership by hitting an ace on the 17th hole Saturday.
