Martin & Wolczok Win 21st MGA Senior Net Four-Ball
MOUNT SINAI, N.Y. (May 14, 2013) – Robert Martin and John Wolczok of Smithtown Landing Men’s Club won the 21st MGA Senior Net Four-Ball Tournament with a 12-under 59 at Hamlet Willow Creek Golf Club in Mount Sinai, N.Y. Their flawless round included two net eagles, eight birdies and eight pars.
With cool and sunny conditions, the day was prime for scoring as most players in the field were able to take advantage of the 6,184 yard par-71 layout. Martin and Wolczok edged John Merchant and Keith Wilster of Sprain Valley Golf Club, who shot an 11-under 60 to finish alone in second.
Four teams shot 61, including Bruce Falkenberg and Walt Koprowski of Smithtown Landing Men’s Club, Michael Friedman and Larry Neville from Monmouth Golfers, Alfred Major and Bill Scheer of Griff Harris Men’s Club and Pine Hollow Country Club, respectively, and Hans Frank and Puan NG of Forest Park Golf Club. However, Major and Scheer were awarded third place due to the tiebreaker (which goes to team with oldest combined age).
Vincent Gramuglia of Leewood and Scott Matthews of Hudson Hills teamed up to capture the low gross with a 2-under 69.
The MGA Senior Net Four-Ball Tournament is open to male amateur golfers who have reached 50 years of age by March 14, 2013 and maintain a USGA Handicap Index not exceeding 18.0.
