SAINT JOSEPH, Mo. -- Former Wake Forest golfer Charlie Schorgl fired a pair of even-par rounds of 71 over the weekend to win the 2012 Missouri Senior Amateur Championship.
After opening the tournament with a bit of an up-and-down opening round of 71 on Saturday, Schorgl played extremely steady golf in cool breezy conditions on Sunday. He had made 15 pars and just two bogeys for the day as he stood on the final tee at the St. Joseph Country Club in a tie for the lead.
Schorgl proceeded to eagle the par-5 18th to seal a two-shot victory in his first appearance in the Missouri Senior Amateur. He finished at even-par 142, two shots ahead of Scott Edwards and Ben Cantrell.
Schorgl, who graduated in 1983, was a teammate of current Wake Forest head men's golf coach Jerry Haas in 1982 and 1983. He made the travel squad the Furman Invitational and the Iron Duke Classic as a senior in 1983.
