South Park GC ties Buffalo GC in Annual Challenge Cup and Retains the Cup
For the first time in the history of Challenge Cup, the result was a tie as the South Park and Buffalo Golf Club's each ended with 9 points. By virtue of winning in 2011 South Park gets to keep the Cup for another year. Captain Sean McNamara chose a solid team and paired them appropriately when the team finished the first day with a 5-1 lead, but the BGC made a furious comeback in the Sunday singles competition, wining 8 of 12 matches to result is a tie. South Park's Greg Schaefer won the clutch final match to ensure a tie. Next year should be another great competition, especially after this year's tie.
Liam Friedman Sets Course Record
2 time Club Champion and current PGA Golfer Liam Friedman returned to the South Park Golf Course on August 2nd and shot a 9 hole round of 8 under 27 by recording 9 straight 3s. Liam's round broke the modern record of 29 previously held by Sean McNamara, Mark Poloncarz and Ed Tokarz, Jr. As described by those he played with that day, the round was the easiest 8 under you will ever see and the only hole he did not make a birdie on was the par 3 4th hole. Congratulations to Liam on this incredible new record and look for more of Liam's exploits this year on the Golf Channel's Big Break.
Gary Masocco Wins Club Championship; Matt Sullivan and Rob Cattarin win B & C Class, respectively
This year's club championship was one of the closest tournaments in many years with Gary Masocco prevailing over the steady play of Jerry Kuwik and the inspired round of Steve McDonald. The heavy favorites of Tim Knott, Sean McNamara and Dan Fitzgibbons faded early, leaving the tourney to Masocco, first round leader Kuwik, and McDonald who scorched the front nine on Sunday with a 5 under 30. Masocco's final round of 69 was good enough for a 2 shot victory over McDonald and his first club championship.
Matt Sullivan came out of nowhere to shoot 2 rounds of 78 to surprise the field in B Class. Sullivan could have played in C but his great play lately led to him moving up a class and his decision was rewarded with the most consistent play in B. Jay Cyman was the leader through most of the 2 days, but a ball out of bounds on the 14th hole on Sunday led to his demise and opened the door for Sullivan. With Sullivan moving up a class, Rob Cattarin had smooth sailing and carved out a 6 stroke victory for his first C Class tourney.
