The Riggs Open was held at Great Cove Golf Course on Sunday, July 14, with local golfer Lucas Carbaugh taking the trophy in a sudden-death playoff. Carbaugh claimed the prize parring the first playoff hole against two-handicap golfer John Buljat of Somerset. After an errant drive Buljat missed the No. 1 green long while Carbaugh found the front to twoput for par. Buljat missed his put for boogie.

While Carbaugh won the trophy with a net 68, Buljat won the low-gross prize with a one-under-par round of 70. Great Cove golfer Tony Foreman claimed second low gross, shooting 75 for the round.

In the net division Great Cove golfers John Mixell was second with a net 69; Toby Souders third with 70 and Chris Mellott fourth with 70.

The senior division was won by longtime golfer Carl Paylor, who shot an 84 for a net 69. Paylor has been shooting in the low 80s all year.

Closest to the pins were won by Russell Harman, Denver Trumpower, Bill Yocum and Tim McGarvey.
