Ontario Golf Wins 2013 Williamson Cup
By Chris Powers, MGA Communications Intern
SCARBOROUGH, N.Y. (August 14, 2013) – The Metropolitan Golf Association was looking for it’s third consecutive Williamson Cup victory Wednesday at Sleepy Hollow Country Club in Scarborough, N.Y., but they fell short by just three strokes. It was the Golf Association of Ontario prevailing, led by individual medalist and AJGA Ravenwood Junior runner-up Tony Gil. Team score was determined by taking the top three scores from each golf association’s four players per 18 holes in the 36-hole competition.
A total of 451 would be good enough for the G.A. of Ontario to beat the MGA and Washington Metropolitan Golf Association’s 454 stroke total, which tied for second. Coming alone in fourth was the Golf Association of Philadelphia with a total of 455. Also competing in today’s event were the following: Delaware State Golf Association, Pennsylvania Golf Association, Quebec Golf Association, Western Pennsylvania Golf Association, Syracuse Golf Association and the Rochester District Golf Association.
Tony Gil would have to share the individual medalist spot at 6-over 146 for the day. The other 146 came from Delaware State Golf Association Junior Boys Champion Ryan Rucinski who, identically to Gil, fired impressive rounds of 72 and 74.
Just missing out on another co-medalist spot was the MGA’s Vincent Palazzolo who shot rounds of 75 and 73 for an 8-over total of 148 to lead the defending champs. Also shooting 148 (73-75) was G.A. of Philadelphia’s Stephen Cerbara, coming off his Christman Cup victory in July, which was the 15-year-old’s G.A. of Philadelphia debut.
