Hertzog, Drescher Team to Win 2022 A.B. Thorn Memorial Pro-Am
The annual tournament was first played in 1936 under the moniker “Lancaster Pro-Am,” and has since changed to its current name to memorialize A.B. Thorn, Lancaster’s former PGA Head Professional, who also held the Section’s first vice president position in 1942-1944.
Hertzog and Drescher’s Four Ball score, 4-under-par 66, was impressive, as the field had to battle off-and-on rain, and consistently strong winds, with gusts around 25 miles per hour. Both Hertzog and Drescher were responsible for two birdies each (Nos. 13 and 18, and Nos. 7 and 8, respectively), and zero bogies.
Three teams tied for second place at 3-under-par: Hugo Mazzalupi, PGA, Linfield National G.C., and Scott Storck; John Spina, PGA, Philadelphia Cricket Club, and Kevin Kelly; and Tom Michaels, PGA, Berkshire C.C., and Nathan Sutherland. Lancaster C.C.’s Matt Goudie, PGA, and Marc Oliveri; tied for fifth place at 2-under-par with C.C. of York’s Parks Price, PGA, and Rij Patel.
