Tony Hejna '90 Finishes Second in NY State Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship
On Sunday, The Times Union reported that Tony Hejna '90, former RPI hockey player now living in Buffalo, NY, was in second place after two rounds of the New York State Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship. A quick check of the NYSGA website indicates that Hejna played well in the third round (link to an Adobe Acrobat document), and finished second overall in the tournament (75-71-74=220, +7).
Jim Roy from Bellevue Country Club in Syracuse won the tournament. He has won this competition four times, including this year.
Hejna was leading by one stroke after 16. He bogied the 17th and 18th holes to lose by one stroke. Tony is a tremendous competitor and deserves a lot of credit for coming as close as he did to winning such a prestigious tournament.
