Philmont Host GWAT Philly Metro On Hybrid-18 Course (North & South)



Philmont Country Club hosted the GOLFWEEK Amateur Tour (Philly Metro) on Saturday May 9th, 2015. Fifty-six tour players in five flights competed on a partly sunny calm afternoon on a unique tournament layout.  Philmont Country Club, which dates to 1906, is a private club in Huntington Valley, PA, with 36 holes in play on 2 different golf courses.  Due to problems related to the recent severe winter, the tournament course we played consisted of nine-holes each from the North and South courses.

In the Championship Flight, Wes Samons (Metro NY) posted a second consecutive victory on our tour with a round of 76 (36-40), that included two great birdies. Paul Yun, a new Philly Metro member, also posted a steady 76 (38-38). In the playoff, both players made a Par 4 on the 1st. Samons took the title on the Par 4 2nd after Yun dumped his approach shot into the pond. Doug Hilgenberg (39-40, 79) and Kyle Mazza (39-40, 79) were tied for 3rd place.

The A Flight victory went to Dave Upchurch, with a fantastic 77 (40-37), which included a birdie on the Par 4 15th hole. Michael Dupree was two-strokes behind with a 79 (41-38) that included two great birdies. The 3rd place prize went to Justin O’Neal, who was another stroke back with an 80 (39-41).

In the B Flight, Joe Foley took the honors after a fine round of 85 (45-40), which also included a birdie on the Par 4 15th hole.  Matt McCormack (46-42, 88) was two-strokes behind Foley in 2nd place.  Ron Pace (50-39, 89), Ted Mazurek (46-43, 89) and Allen Bailey (44-45, 89) tied for 3rd place another two-strokes back.  Pace took the 3rd place prize on a match-of-cards.

The C Flight champion was Mike Marchionda who posted 89 (45-44) out ahead of the field. New member Kurt Lewandowski did his best to catch Mike, but fell one-stroke short and posted a 90 (46-44). There was a tie for 3rd place between Dave Neder (46-47, 93) and Zach Davis (42-51, 93).

In the D Flight, Sean Matthews bested the field with a winning score of 102 (50-52), to win by three-strokes over George Adams (56-49, 105).  Sean defended his 2014 title at Philmont Country Club.
Special thanks to Head Golf Professional Mickey Sokalski and his staff at Philmont for treating our players as "members for the day" – it was a truly memorable golf experience. We proudly welcomed METRO NY members Wes Samons and David Beck to the tournament. Philmont Country Club has hosted the GWAT (Philly Metro) in each of our five seasons of tournament competition.

The Philly Metro Tour season moves to the highly acclaimed High Bridge Hills Golf Club in High Bridge, NJ on Saturday May 23, 2015. A Geoffrey Cornish & Associates design, this municipal course opened in 1999
on spectacular terrain overlooking the beautiful Spruce Run Reservoir. Scheduled tee times begin at 11:00 AM from the 1st tee. As always, thanks for playing!
