Team Parson Surges Late to Win AC Team Stableford Championship
Egg Harbor Township, N.J, – On a near perfect late spring day, 36 teams traveled to the New Jersey shore and Hidden Creek Golf Club for the annual Atlantic City Team Stableford Championship. The championships pairs one PGA Professional with three amateur partners playing a stableford points system competing in both a Net and Gross division.
In the Net division a local team made a late surge to grab the crown. Mark Parson (Harbor Pines GC) and his partners Darren Matik, Casey Klingert, and Alex Clark finished with a total score of 91 points beating out a pair of teams that finished with 86 total points. All members of the team contributed to the overall score but it was the net birdie, eagle, eagle finish on holes 16-18 that sealed their victory.
The team of John Kulhamer (Green Pond CC) and his amateur partners Jason Wilson, Charlie Leon, and Tom Lusto repeated as Gross division champions with an overall score of 77 points. Each member of the team carded natural birdies leading to their two point victory.
