Ron Bates ... wins second San Juan Golf and Country Club club title.

Ron Bates won the San Juan Golf and Country Club club championship, in competition that ended Sept. 12.

It’s Bates’ second club championship; he won in 2006. Bates defeated Thane Bolger, Steve Duzan and Jim Schuman for this year’s title.

“This year there is a large asterisk on the trophy, without nine-time club champion Phil McKee in the field, who is recovering from non-Hodgkins lymphoma,” Bates said. “I went out and won this one for the Kiwi.”

Jan Cyre is this year’s women’s club champion.
