CINCINNATI, Ohio (July 12, 2021) – Congratulations to Bob Stephens, PGA who claimed the Queen City Classic victory after a four-hole, four-way playoff at Clovernook Country Club! 

Three-under-par was a popular score at the Queen City Classic as four professionals tied at the top of the leaderboard. Bob Stephens, PGA took the clubhouse lead after carding a 68 for the round. Joe Moore, PGA & Ricky Denny, PGA soon joined Stephens at the top of the leaderboard as they both carded scores of 68. The three players watched the leaderboard closely as they waited for the field to finish, specifically Ryne Burnett, PGA who made the turn at two-under-par. With a birdie on the seventeenth hole, Burnett was four-under-par with one hole to play. A bogey on the eighteenth made for an exciting four-player playoff for the Queen City Classic victory. 

The playoff began on Clovernook’s tenth hole between Stephens, Moore, Denny & Burnett. Pars for Stephens, Moore & Denny advanced them to the second playoff hole on Clovernook’s #18. Stephens & Denny made it to the third playoff hole, back on #10, where they continued to make pars. Stephens claimed the victory on the fourth playoff hole, #18, after sticking his approach shot within inches of the hole and making his birdie putt.
