Cy Whitney rolls at Senior Porter Cup

The 2013 season just keeps getting better for Cy Whitney.

The year started with a trio of wins in the southeast and west coast. Now, he showed that he can win in the northeast following a dominant victory at the Senior Porter Cup at Niagara Falls Country Club.

After an opening-round 73, Whitney fired a 69 in Round 2. He entered the final round with a two shot lead over Robert Parmar and closed with a sound 71 to win by an impressive seven shots.

Larry Nunez joined Paul Schlachter and Parmar in a tie for second place. Nunez shot 71 in the final round to creep into the runner-up position.

Bill Zylstra tied for fifth along with Frank Broderick and Larry Cooper. They were 10 back of the low mark set by Whitney.

Starting in 2008, the Senior Porter Cup is played separately from the amateur Porter Cup, which since 1992, had a Senior Division.
