The Cantiague Park Senior Men’s Golf League had its 10th tournament on July 6. The group had 41 golfers on a beautiful but hot summer day. There were 28 pars but no birdies and seven golfers who scored 39 or better. Bruce Danen won the low actual score with a very fine 36. A very overachieving Don Sterling, with a 44, won low overall net, which hopefully he can continue to build on after some rough outings recently. Match play has begun with some very close matches in the first round.
Going to round two (and matched with the following golfer) in match play in Flight A are: Guerra (10), Parker (11), Danen (with a bye for low overall score), Fitzpatrick (12), Pietsch (11), Skaee (nine), O’Brien (11), Hatalsky (14) and Evans (10).
Going to round two (and matched with the following golfer) in Flight B are: Schreiber (16), Guerriero (15), DeBello (15), Rottkamp (19), Murphy (14) and Sterling (17).
