GLENWOOD LANDING, N.Y. (October 5, 2020) - The team of Frank Meizoso and Jonathan Millman, both representing MGA eClub - Long Island, were winners of the Championship division of the Sands Memorial Four-Ball Invitational sponsored by the Whitmore Group at North Shore Country Club on October 5th.
Meizoso and Millman found themselves headed to a sudden-death playoff with Ryan Hom and Sung Cho, after both teams recorded scores of 3-under 68. The two teams took very different routes to their 3-under finishes. Hom/Cho played steady golf all round long, recording four birdies and only one bogey while Meizoso/Millman's round featured eight birdies, three bogies, and one double bogey on the Par 4 third hole. It took a two-putt par on the first playoff hole, North Shore's Par 3 tenth hole, for Meizoso and Millman to get the job done and claim victory.
