Rhymer, Dofflemyer claim Winnebago County Golf Championships


ROCKTON, Ill. (WTVO/WQRF) — It’s prime time for golf in the Stateline. The next few weeks the Aldeen Cup and the Greater Rockford Men’s and Women’s Golf Classics will be held. This weekend local golfers teed it up in the Winnebago County Amateur Championship at Macktown.

On the women’s side Hui Chong Dofflemyer won for the third time in four years. Saturday she shot a 74. She followed that up Sunday with a 73 on the par 71 course. Megan Thiravong of Rochelle finished in second place after posting a pair of 78s.

Dofflemyer says it’s always a thrill to win tournaments. “Yes. Anytime you win it’s a thrill and then you have good company too. I feel much better. I didn’t have a swing last week but this week I swing much better.”

On the men’s side Cody Rhymer took a three-stroke lead into the second round Sunday thanks to his 65 Saturday. That was just enough pad. Rhymer shot a 72 for a two-round total of 137. That was one better than Chris Beto. He shot rounds of 68-70.
