Web Exclusive Story

The holidays haven’t slowed down the Jake Blitz at Cherokee Rose Country Club and they also haven’t slowed down Dwayne Rye who took medalist honors on Sunday, but he was joined by Daryl Chandler who also captured medalist honors for Wednesday’s blitz.

Rye shot a 1-under 70 to take Sunday honors but Chandler, playing in tougher conditions shot a 76 to win Wednesday’s round.

Point honors for the week went to Jim Niksch and Tom Egner.
