Simson wins National Sr. Hall of Fame in playoff
Paul Simson outlasted Emile Vaughan in a sudden-death playoff June 22 to walk away with the National Senior Hall of Fame Trophy. Simson also won this event in 2010.
Simson, of Raleigh, N.C., finished regulation at 2-under 216, which left him tied with Vaughan. The pair returned to the High Point Country Club’s Willow Creek Course and played the par-4 18th. Simson made par to escape with the victory.
Simson also won the Crane Cup Senior earlier this year, and will be inducted into the Southern Golf Hall of Fame next month. He won the Canadian Senior and the British Senior in 2010
Brady Exber, who co-led with Paul Schlachter after Round 2, finished solo third at even-par 216. Schlachter was another shot back in fourth, while Robert Desjardins and Logan Jackson finished joint fifth at 2-over 218.
