Manchester- While neither Don Dimoff, nor Bill Brenner are professional golfers, there' little doubt that both are pro-caliber players on the York County Amateur Golf Association Tour.
Both Dimoff and Brenner displayed their skills on Sunday Sept. 17, during the YCAGA Champion of Champions event a Royal Manchester Golf Links.
Dimoff shot a 2-under-par 70 to edge his rival and sometimes teammate, Bob Ruby, by a stroke to capture the overall crown. It was Dimoff's first-ever Champion of Champions title. The event is restricted to golfer who are past champions either at a local club or in a YCAGA event.
Brenner finished with a 2-over 74, which tie with Wayne Jacobs after 18 holes, but Brenner won a playoff to take the Super Senior title.
