TOPSTONE RETAINS CUP AGAINST WINTONBURY HILLS
Congratulations to the Topstone interclub team for retaining the cup again this year against Wintonbury. This was an epic comeback from day one when we went down 24.2 to 10.0. All the players on Sunday knew what we had to do to retain the cup and they all brought there “A” game with them. Starting out with the first team match were Jared Albert and Andrew Coats who quickly showed their opponents they meant business and proceeded to take all 3 points in their match with an 11 up victory.
When all the team matches were completed Topstone had secured 4 of the 5 matches with Victor Golebiowski and Dave Kumnick taking 2.5 points, Joe Aronne and Nick Fantano taking 2.7 points, and Brent Colby and Brian Gilbert taking 2.2 points. At this point, we were only trailing 26.6 to 20.4 and the 10 single matches would determine the winning team. When I say we brought our “A” game, well here is when we really showed off our talent. We proceeded to take 9 out of the 10 single matches, and once again secured the trophy. The first 2 single matches were the father son team of Dennis and Phil Richards who took 2.3 and 2.4 points followed by Joe Petrone and Dave Melesko with 2.2 and 2.4 points. When Ryan Lawless won the next match with 2.4 points we had victories in the first 5 single matches and leading in 4 of the five remaining matches. All four players who were leading went on to win with Scott Irvin and Paul Mitchell taking 2.2 and 2.4 points and Gary Keene and Brian Lathrop taking 2.8 and 2.3 points, allowing the cup to be ours to keep for another year. I would like to thank all the players who participated in this year’s interclub against Wintonbury and how you all responded on Sunday with your great play. I would also like to give a special thanks to Casey and Eric for all their hard work they put into these events behind the scenes, except for the timely delivery of those shirts. LOL.
2015 2 Man Best Ball Championship Recap
The first major of the year is in the books and it was some familiar faces taking home the hardware on the gross side. A second round 65 (-7) propelled the duo of Andrew Coats and Jared Albert to a nine shot victory and back-to-back 2 Man Championship titles.
In the Net Championship, an amazing net 57 (-15) on Day 1 was not enough for Brian McGonigle and Cory Schroder as they lost on matching cards to a furious comeback by Al Boudreau and Ray Sylvain. Al and Ray were trailing by 5 shots after the first round but fired a second round 64 to win the event.
In total, 22 teams participated in this year's 2 Man Championship. Thanks to Topstone Pro Shop for running another excellent event and congrats to this year's champions!
