In the Senior Division, KGA legend and Kansas City resident Don Kuehn earned his first Railer Championship title in dominant fashion.  Kuehn finished the 54-hole championship at 10-under par 206 total which was good enough for a 14 shot victory over the field.  Bob Hartmann and Steve Newman finished in a tie for second place.
