2022 US National Championship Playdowns

Bob Schneider and Rob Behncke swept through the round robin event against some very strong teams, defeating seveal teams who finished tied for for second place.  Bob and Rob were undefeated and captured the 2022 Central Division Pairs Championship.  They will be heading to Sun City AZ  for the National Championships running from October 31 to November 5.  They are former pairs champions, having won in 2015.  Mark Mathwig and newcomer Karl Freund finished second with Tony Baer and Aaron Zangl in third.

Aaron Zangl won the Singles Playdowns. All the players had to deal with 90+ degree weather and the noise levels from the Blue Angels air show…great visuals but hard on the ears. Aaron got off to an early lead and never faltered.  Aaron (who is inexplicably well tanned for a Wisconsin lad) combined an exceptional draw game with an occasional spot on drive shot to finish undefeated.  Tony Baer made a strong run to finish up in second place.  Jim Cavender, a former National Champion in pairs and singles, finished in third place.
