Slattery siblings sweep city championships
It was a family affair on Sunday at Aldeen Golf Club as the Slattery siblings, Kyle and Jesse, took home the Greater Rockford Men's and Women's Golf Classic championships.
For Jesse, this is her first title in this event. Jesse entered the match-play portion of the tournament as a seven-seed. She knocked off Ella Greenberg, Katelyn Sayyalinh and Natalie Hooper on her way to the trophy.
Kyle was in a familiar battle all four days and courses. He went toe-to-toe with his friend Danny Gorman. The two traded leads throughout the tournament, including Sunday. Gorman took a one-stroke lead heading to 18, before a triple-bogey did in his championship aspirations. Kyle took advantage of the opportunity to win his third city title in four years.
