In a small but skilled field, the first annual Coventry Commonwealth Games Minigolf Tournament proved to be all that it was hyped to be.  Jumping out to a one stroke lead Roanoke Putting Club (RPC) member Geoff Boyer skillfully negotiated the damp morning carpets to a seven under par 29.  Following his first round success Boyer again bested the greens with an eight under par 28 to post a thirty six hole lead of 57.

The medal round however proved to be quite different with medal positions changing faster than horses on derby day.  Thirty six hole leader Boyer went cold early leaving the door open for several contenders.  Capitalizing upon the opening, RPC member and reigning US Open Amateur Champion Clayton Craft fired a ten under par 26 to take gold.  Battling hard to the end Boyer held off the charging field to force a playoff for the silver and bronze medals.  In the exciting playoff, Boyer returned to his previous form to capture the silver leaving Lynchburg native Wade Driskill with the bronze.
