After a few weeks off, the Philadelphia Assistants Organization was back in action this week at Cedarbrook Country Club. A small, but strong field scorched the course on a hot July day. Leading the way was trio of Jeff Herb, Matt Cocco, and Michael Little at 3 under par 69.
Jeff Herb and Matt Cocco teed it up for a sudden death playoff beginning on number 18. Herb’s second shot found the greenside bunker and Cocco’s drive was blocked out by a tree where he was forced to punch out. Both players walked off with pair of 5’s and continued to number 10. After a great pitch on his third shot into the par 5, Herb had a 15 footer left for birdie. Cocco made a great attempt to recover from his tee shot, but after his par putt didn’t find the hole, Herb drained his birdie for the win.
The PAO would like to thank their sponsors Scott Hutchinson and Conrad Radcliffe for coming out on Monday for the event.
