past weekend at Manakiki Golf Course for the �2012 Cleveland
Metroparks Golf Tour Championship.�
On Saturday, October 13 the �2012 Tour Championship,� which
marks the conclusion of the �2012 Tournament Series� within
Cleveland Metroparks, ended with true excitement. Despite the cool
weather, David Sotka remained on a hot streak, winning the Barbour
Cup event last week with partner Steve Blackburn, Jr., and cutting
his partner by one stroke at the Tour Championship event. Sotka
fired a solid 1- under par 71 to Blackburn, Jr.'s 72:

be a real success. As the year progressed, interest really began to
grow and it is something we look forward to continuing for many
seasons to come,� said Golf Pro John Fiander.
