(July 16, 2020 4:27 PM) Jackson area golfer Steve Maddalena says he enjoys playing Ella Sharp Golf Course because of the challenging greens and pin placements.

When you hit irons like Maddalena, the challenge is minimized at time.

He shot a pair of 67s for an 8-under-par total to win the Joe Fiero Memorial City Senior Championship at Ella Sharp Park Golf Course over the weekend.

It is the fourth title at the event for Maddalena, first winning it in 2011.

Mark Kurzynowski finished second with a 5-under-par total for 137; Greg Zeller placed third at 141; and Mike Raymond, Jim Coutu, and Todd Marston each tied for fourth at 144.

Zeller had won the event the two previous years.

Maddalena said he plays at Sharp Park twice a year but enjoys the course.

“I enjoy playing the short golf course because you have to hit a lot of golf shots,” Maddalena said following his win. “The greens are challenging … you have to decide were you want to put the ball in order to have a decent shot at making a putt.”

Maddalena birdied 14, 15, and 18 to pull away on the back nice.

Harold West won another 60-plus title at the tournament with a 68 on Sunday. He erased a four-shot lead on Sunday to win the title with a two-day total of 145.

Jerry Lefere was second at 147, and Roger Kuhl placed third at 149 following a 72 on Sunday.

Walt Paszkiet earned the most improved golfer of the day, shooting a 1-under-par 70 in the 60-plus tournament – 20 strokes better than Saturday’s round.
