Kirkpatrick & Morgan Ride the Wave to an Oakley Skull Cup Win

Under clear blue skies and near perfect temperatures the second installment of the Oakley Skull Cup Pro-Am was played at Galloway National Golf Club. The event pairs together one PGA Professional and one amateur in the better ball of partners event. All amateur are playing to 80% of their handicaps.

With the Oakley Skull Cup Pro-Am played as a shotgun event scores were coming in fast and furious at the end of the day. However, one of the first team to finish their rounds posted an impressive score of 7-under-par (64). Bob Hennefer (Indian Spring Golf Club) and his partner Matt Jugan combined for nine birdies against only two bogeys to claim the early lead. The pair was quickly joined at 7-under-par by the team of Dave Quinn (Links Golf Club) and his amateur partner Ed Quinn. The duo combined for the most team birdies in the field (10) but some unfortunate bogeys kept them from posting an even better number.

However, as scores continued to stream in the team featuring Ron Pine (Whitemarsh Valley Country Club) and his partner Chuck Lynch posted a score of 8-under-par (63) to jump into the lead. Pine and Lynch carded seven birdies and one eagle but an untimely bogey on the par4 12th hole kept them from having a flawless round and ultimately a share of the win.

Riding a wave of great play from both teammates one team was able to best the field and post a winning score of 9-under-par (62) to claim the tournament’s top spot. Curtis Kirkpatrick (Indian Spring Golf Club) and his amateur partner Harold Morgan combined for nine team birdies and one eagle. Their outstanding play helped them overcome their two bogeys and earn the one-shot win.
