Von SeegerBy Don Thames, RMCC Club Professional
Stefan von Seeger made it two in a row by virtue of a convincing 8-7 victory over RMCC Medal Play champion Dean Clapp in the finals of the 2018 RMCC Club Championship, held over the last two weekends.  Von Seeger’s crushing style featured a three-birdie, no-bogey morning round of the final match that proved to be too much for Clapp to overcome.
