St. Davids GC and Chapel Hill GC Tie for Fall Finale

Northfield, N.J. – On a perfect fall afternoon 18 teams came together to play the Fall Finale at the historic Atlantic City Country Club. It has been 8 years since this event has taken place and the Pros were excited to have the weather on their side after this unpredictable season that they went through. It was a 12:30 PM shotgun for all 72 players, with one Pro and three amateurs playing in both a net and gross division with a best ball of 4.

As scorecards started to come in there were two teams that had a score to beat with -11 under par 59. Mike Paukovitis (St Davids GC) with partners William Paukovits, Christopher Acker, Regan Papariello were the first to turn in their scorecards and with 11 birdies took the early lead. The team of Jeff Fick (Chapel Hill GC) and partners Scott Gilroy, John Brennan, and Howard Pomerantz also finished 11-under par to tie them. Team Fick’s scorecard had 7 birdies and added two eagles on hole 13 and 15. Fick’s team tied for the win in the Net division, and Paukovitis’ team, although winning the Gross division with a 9-under par 61, settled for the tie in the Net with a bigger purse.  Coming in tied for third in the Net division were the teams of Forster (Radnor Valley CC) and Duckett (Saucon Valley CC). Host professional Barry Shewalter, with his teammates Doug Fraser, Matthew Johnson, and Brian Sterback, won the Gross division with a 5-under par 65.

The Philadelphia Section would like to thank the Atlantic City Country Club for hosting the event as well as the tournament sponsor Lincoln for their continued support this season. The section will have the last tournament of the season next Wednesday at Llanerch Country Club for the rained-out, Spring Pro-Lady.
