Team Waynesboro Cruises to Win at Summer Pro-Lady Team Championship
Plymouth Meeting, Pa. – On a beautiful, sunny, summer day the second Pro-Lady Team Championship was held at Sunnybrook Golf Club. The event featured 52 teams, all featuring one PGA Professional and three female amateurs competing in both a Gross and Net division.
Playing early in the tournament the team from Waynesboro Municipal Golf Course proved too much for the rest field. The group, which featured PGA Professional Dan Baker and his partners Vicki Baker, Mickey Goyette, and Patty Gertzen, shot a combined score of 20-under (52). The group was lead in part by two Net holes-in-one from Gertzen and Vicki Baker who posted natural birdies on holes 5 & 8 respectively. However, each member of the group contributed multiple birdies leading to their 5-shot victory.
A pair of teams finished tied for second at 15-under (57). The first team to reach that number was George Frake (Little Mill Golf Club) and his partners Jacque Laird, Anne Conway, and Beth Smith. Matching them at the second place number was Chris Wilkinson (Llanerch Country Club) Janet Allman, Mary Ellen Pernice, and Arlene Del Pizzo.
In the Gross Division five teams tied for first place with a score of 7-under (65). The first team to post the magic number was Ryan Carfara (Golf Galaxy-Devon) and his partners Bonnie Yothers, Pat Carbone, and Laura Hammond. However they were quickly joined by the team from Philadelphia Cricket Club featuring Michael Ferguson and his partners Marji Goldman, Joanne Bidwell, and SooHee Lim. The third team to join the party was Tony Perla (Philadelphia Cricket Club) and his partners Kerry Rutan, Mary Schwartz, and Alison Shoemaker. The fourth and fifth teams to shoot 7-under (65) were the teams lead by Dan Baker and George Frake who also placed in the tournament’s Net Division.
The Section would like to thank the membership and staff at Sunnybrook Golf Club for their support of this event. The Philadelphia PGA will return to action on Monday, September 12 at Llanerch Country Club for the Mariniello Tournament of Champions Pro-Am.
