Nashua Country Club’s Phil Pleat won the 2017 New Hampshire Senior Championship golf tournament with a 1-under par 141 for the 36-hole championship, which ended Thursday at North Conway Country Club.
It’s Pleat’s 20th NHGA title and sixth senior championship win in seven years. He finished two shots ahead of Ken Nilson and Mike Blair, and three shots head of Craig Steckowych and David Kane. Dan Arvanitis was sixth, four shots back.
"I’ve got good memories back 16 years ago in the State Am," which was played at North Conway, Pleat said. "I played fairly well."
"It feels great," Pleat said. "It’s hard to believe. I’m real fortunate. There’s less shots that I can hit now and I just try to stick to my game plan and go about my business. I’m very lucky."
