2.       All golfers will compete in their respective flights (Champ – D) during tournaments to earn points.

 

3.       Each registered player will receive the same amount of Challenge points as points they earned for the tournament they played in.

Philmont Country Club (North) Hosts 2016 Local Finals 09-17-16

Philmont Country Club (North) hosted the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) 2016 Local Finals on Saturday September 17, 2016. Thirty-Six players in five flights competed on a perfect late summer day for golf on the challenging traditional styled course. The 6,670 yard Par 70 North Course, designed by William S. Flynn and Willie Park, features numerous water hazards, fast undulating greens, and tight tree-lined fairways.

In the Championship Flight, former GWAT National Champion Albie Sanguiliano (76, 37-39) caught “lightning in a bottle” and electrified the field with a HOLE-IN-ONE on the Par 3 3rd hole en-route to his tournament victory. Albie used a 7-iron from 160 yards. Gary Greenberg (78, 38-40) was two-strokes back in 2nd place. Matthew Perrino (79, 41-38) was another stroke-back in 3rd position. The Championship Flight played the BLUE Tees at 6,499 yards.

The A Flight victory went to Josh Numbers (82, 39-43) who posted a two-stroke victory over Carl Handwerk (84, 41-43) in a close contest. Darren Parkes (85, 42-43) was another stroke-back in 3rd position. The A Flight played the BLUE Tees at 6,499 yards.

In the B Flight, John Freymuller (78, 37-41) surged to victory by five-strokes over Steve Mumford (83, 42-41) and Steve Winnick (83, 45-38). Winnick took 2nd place on a match-of-cards, and Mumford took 3rd position. The B Flight played from the WHITE Tees at 6,207 yards.

 

The C Flight champion was John Son (88, 41-47) who posted a one-stroke victory over Zach Davis (89, 45-44). Dave Neder (94, 47-47 was another five-strokes back in 3rd position. The C Flight played from the WHITE Tees at 6,207 yards.

In the D Flight, Sean Matthews (90, 48-42) posted a five-stroke victory over John Stevens (95, 47-48). Philly Metro Director Jeff Brodsky (99, 48-51) was another four-strokes back in 3rd position. The D Flight played from the GOLD Tees at 6,105 yards.

Special thanks to Head Golf Professional Mickey Sokalski and his staff at Philmont for treating our players as “members for the day” and allowing us to play the Local Finals at their private course.

The GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) 2016 season has come to an end. We would like to congratulate our 2016 Flight Champions:
