What else can be said about this four-time MGA champion? He has been as dominant a player in the Met Area as anyone has over the past three decades having won seemingly every “major” event at least once. In 2004, despite not having full-time status on the Champions Tour, Kestner still managed to place 81st on the 2004 Money List with $121,873 in earnings in just 6 events.

Ed Whitman, Knickerbocker CC

Whitman continues to impress as one of the top players in not only New Jersey but in the entire Met Area. This five-time NJPGA Player of the Year is coming off a stellar 2004 capturing the MGA/Canon MGA Senior Open as well as the NJ State Open. He has qualified and competed in two U.S. Opens (1993 at Baltusrol and 2000 and Pebble Beach.)
