Aaron Walters wins Men's City title

Hard to believe that at 32, Aaron Walters would look like one of the old men. But that was the case at Chestnut Hills Golf Club, where he held off college and high school golfers, the 2013 champion and a slew of others to win the Men’s City Golf Tournament.

Age doesn’t matter anyway, not when you’re hitting the golf ball like Walters was Sunday.

“When it comes down to it, it’s just golf,” said Walters, who had a final-round, even-par 72 to finish the three-day event at 2 under.

“No matter how old or young you are, if you play well and play the right way, you have the ability to compete. I just thought it was important for me to play my game. Luckily, it worked out. I didn’t expect it to happen this way, but it did. And I’m just very thankful for that.”

Walters edged 20-year-old Michigan State golfer Mitch Rutledge and 42-year-old Sean Ferguson by one stroke, while 2013 winner Patrick Kelley, Bishop Dwenger’s Callahan Elzey and Johnny Strawser were two back at even par.

Ferguson shot a 71 on Sunday, while Rutledge had a 76, Strawser had a day-best 69 and Elzey had a 77.
