2014 Season Opens At The Ridge At Back Brook - 04-26-14

The Ridge At Back Brook  Ringoes, NJ
Philly Metro & Metro NY  2014 Season-Opening Event
April 26, 2014

The Ridge At Back Brook in Ringoes, NJ was the venue for the 2014 season-opening tournament of the Philly Metro & Metro NY GOLFWEEK Amateur Tours.  Tour members competed on the Tom Fazio designed tournament course at this exclusive private club for trophies in 5 flights. The course was a tremendous challenge for the sold-out field of 88 players. Head Golf Professional Clint Deibert and his staff made certain that their championship golf course was in immaculate condition for our event.

Adam Larkin (37-41, 78) of the Metro NY Tour took home the trophy in the Championship Flight.  Adam was tied after 18 holes with Jules Quinones (40-38, 78) of the Philly Metro Tour and Mark Macejko (39-39, 78) of the Triad Tour. Larkin birdied the first hole of the playoff to take the title. Gwinyai Murahwa (38-41, 79) of the Philly Metro Tour and Wes Samons (37-42, 79) of the Metro NY Tour were one-shot back and missed the playoff.

Kyle Mazza (37-37, 74) of the Philly Metro Tour was the runaway winner in A Flight, posting a seven-shot victory over John McCandless (41-40, 81). Kyle’s round included birdies on the Par 5 5th hole and the par 3 17th hole.  Darren Parkes (42-40, 82) and George Reby (41-41, 82) of Philly Metro and Kevin O’Hea (40-42, 82) of Metro NY were all one-shot back; Parkes took 3rdplace on a match of cards.

The B Flight tournament was a heated competition decided by one stroke. Derek Stevenson (44-39, 83) of the Metro NY Tour took home the trophy. Stevenson’s back-nine 39 included a birdie on the Par 3 12th hole. Kevin Martyn (46-38, 84) of Philly Metro had 4 birdies in his round; he was one shot back and took 2nd place on a match of cards over Ron Fortino (44-40, 84) and Joe Volpe (43-41, 84) of Philly Metro. Fortino took 3rd place.

There was a heated battle between cart-mates in C Flight. Brian Falker (41-44, 85) of Philly Metro took the title by one-stroke over playing companion Michael Marchionda (45-41, 86), also from the Philly Metro Tour. Chris Moore (47-41, 88) from Philly Metro took 3rd place.

The D Flight champion was Michael Boutross (46-49, 95) from the Philly Metro tour; Michael won in a playoff against Michael Murphy (48-47, 95) of Philly Metro, who took 2nd place.

We proudly welcomed a former GWAT Tournament Champion, Mark Macejko of the Triad Tour, to the event. Thanks also to Beasley Reece of CBS-3 TV in Philadelphia for coming out to play, and for his support of our tour. The event raised $100.00 for the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour’s charity partner, Stand Up 2 Cancer.

The Philly Metro & Metro NY tours are co-hosting another event later this summer at the incredible Old York Country Club in Chesterfield, NJ. Please mark your calendars and plan to join us on Saturday August 23rd for this tournament in central New Jersey.
