White Manor Country Club in Malvern, PA hosted a great Monday tournament.

White Manor Country Club   
Malvern, PA
July 30, 2018

White Manor Country Club was the venue for the ninth tournament of the season on Monday July 30th.  Seventy GWAT members (from 3 tours) competed on the challenging Par 72 parkland course for trophies in 5 flights.  White Manor opened in 1962 in the rolling hills of Chester County “hunt country” on property that was once a dairy farm.  Bobby Weed re-designed the course in 2003 and created a spectacular layout that flows from green to tee with many closely-mown fall-off areas throughout.

In the Championship Flight, Stephen Scott (77, 38-39) won a close contest against Steve Barry (79, 43-36) and George Steinmetz (79, 39-40).  Barry took 2nd and Steinmetz took 3rd on a match-of-cards.  The CHAMP Flight played from the SILVER / BRONZE Combo Tees at 6,899 yards.

The A Flight winner was Andrew Rohach (73, 37-36) by five-strokes over Michael Dupree (78, 40-38). Doug Hilgenberg (84, 46-38), Keith Gibert (DC Metro) (84, 44-40), Josh Numbers (84, 42-42) and Al Nagbe (84, 41-43) were tied another six-strokes behind. Hilgenberg took 3rd place on a match-of-cards.  The A Flight played from the BRONZE Tees at 6,702 yards.

Jim Boyce (76, 37-39) continued his torrid play and won the B Flight by five-strokes over Steve Winnick (81, 41-40).  Phil Yang (82, 38-44) was another stroke back in 3rd place. The B Flight played from the BRONZE / BLACK Combo Tees at 6,493 yards.

In the C Flight, Ray Fortino (83, 42-41) took the title by two-strokes over Dave Neder (85, 37-48). Alex Kluka (86, 44-42) was another stroke-back in 3rd place.  The C Flight played from the BLACK / GREEN Combo Tees at 6,138 yards.

The D Flight winner was Adam Hansen (90, 43-47). Sean Matthews (96, 52-44) and Drew Ruck (96, 45-51) were six-strokes back; Matthews took 2nd on a match-of-cards and Ruck took 3rd.  The D Flight also played from the BLACK / GREEN Combo Tees at 6,138 yards.
