September 7, 2019

The Shore Club in Cape May Courthouse, NJ hosted the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) on Saturday September 7th, 2019.  Small fast greens, numerous water hazards, and breezy conditions all contributed to the challenge at The Shore Club. The mature tree-lined golf course dates from 1916, with only 3 Par 3 holes, which makes the course play longer than others of a similar yardage.

In the Championship Flight, John Sheehan (MNY) (82, 40-42) took home the trophy with a steady round. The Championship Flight played BLACK Tees “from the tips” at 6,698 yards.

The A Flight victory went to Jason Ross (86, 42-44). This was Jason’s first victory on tour. Shane Martin (87, 42-45) was one-stroke back in 2nd place. Andy McCormick (88, 43-45) was another stroke-back in 3rd position. 
The A Flight also played BLACK Tees “from the tips” at 6,698 yards.

The B Flight title went to Sal Ditta (MNY) (88, 45-43) by one-stroke over John McCandless (89, 44-45).  Rich Mariner (91, 46-45) and Steve Winnick (91, 46-45) were two-strokes back in a tie for 3rd position after identical rounds.  The B Flight played BLUE Tees from 6,287 yards.


The C Flight victory went to John Higgins (90, 44-46). This was John’s 3rd victory of the season. Dave Neder (93, 48-45) was three-strokes back in 2nd place. John Eastlack (94, 51-43) and Larry Barber (94, 47-47) were tied another stroke-back; Eastlack took 3rd position on a match-of-cards. The C Flight played a BLUE / WHITE Combo Tee at 6,169 yards.

In the D Flight , Sean Matthews (94, 50-44) was once again a winner on tour. This was Sean’s 5th victory of the season.  Fred Hering (97, 49-48) was three-strokes back in 2nd place. Jim Bekiaris (MNY) (99, 53-46) was another two-strokes back in 3rd position. The D Flight also played a BLUE / WHITE Combo Tee at 6,169 yards.


Special thanks to Head Golf Professional Fred Reidel and his staff for their outstanding assistance in ensuring our players were “members for the day” at The Shore Club. The course was in fantastic condition for our tournament, despite some overnight rains. Bright sunshine and clear skies with some gusty ocean breezes prevailed throughout the day.
