Brad Nurski claimed the 2017 St. Joseph Country Club Championship, his sixth all-time win in the club’s premier tournament.

When playing in the St. Joseph Country Club Championship, Brad Nurski has been perfect.

The three-time Missouri Amateur champion will tee it up with the city’s best golfers this weekend at the club championship, where Nurski will try to go 7-for-7 after winning his sixth title a year ago.

“It’s always good when you get that title around your name. To be the club champion up there with all the history, it makes it even better,” Nurski said. “It’s home. It’s my home golf course. There’s a lot of good players that have won the club championship up there. You just wanna keep winning and try to get your name up there with them.”

Nurski’s return to the club’s premier annual event comes on the heels of back-to-back Missouri Amateur titles, though his playing partner that day figures to give him yet another run this summer.

Brooks Jungbluth, 18, took Nurski down to the wire at Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, before Nurski won his second straight state amateur championship.

The two will be paired again to start the tournament on Saturday.

“It was great. We made a lot of history for St. Joe that day,” Nurski said. “He played really well and I was proud of him. I’m just fortunate that I came out on top.”

Nurski won the 2017 title by 18 strokes, his sixth time winning the tournament that began back in 1913.
