Jerry Rapp needed to play his best Wednesday, and he did.
The 1983 Butte Central graduate topped Kaven Noctor in a thrilling 36-hole match to capture his eighth club championship at the Highland View Golf Course.
Rapp shot a 1-under-par 69 and a 5-under 65 to edge Noctor, a 2020 Butte High graduate who will play golf for Montana Tech. He won the match 3 and 2.
“What a great match,” Rapp said. “I think we had four holes tied with birdies. Kudos to Kaven. He played great and was a perfect gentleman. I wish him well on the Tech golf team.”
The title ties Rapp with Don Foley for the most club championships in the history of the municipal course. He has won all four club championships he has played in since he moved back to Butte several years ago.
Noctor beat Foley in one semifinal. Rapp beat Clint Choquette in the other. 1 comment
