Westampton, N.J. (June 6, 2022) — PGA Member Braden Shattuck of Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Pa., turned in a even-par 70 final round following his first round 61, finishing at 9-under-par to successfully defend his title at the 36th Burlington Classic presented by WSFS Bank. Shattuck bettered Forsgate C.C’s Tony Perla of the New Jersey PGA Section by one stroke.
“I played well yesterday,” Shattuck said. “Today I started strong with three birdies in a row, which gave me a little cushion going into the back nine.
“I thank everyone at Rolling Green G.C., the members, PGA Head Professional Scott Chisholm, and my coworkers, in addition to my friends at Titleist, Makefield Putters’ Michael Little, PGA, and of course Burlington C.C., including Mike Mack, PGA, Tournament Chair John Hanuscin, and their members. I had a great group yesterday in the pro-am; I was able to play with Burlington C.C. Superintendent Jeremy Dilks, and Nicklaus Design’s Chad Goetz who recently worked on the course. We had a lot of fun!”
Perla challenged Shattuck mid-round, highlighted by a hole-in-one on No. 12, using a 6-iron from 190 yards. Perla was within one stroke on the back nine, but Shattuck responded with two birdies of his own on Nos. 14 and 16, before giving them back on 17 and 18.
Corey Katzen recorded rounds of 73-86–147 to finish as low amateur and win the Marotto Medal by 12 strokes over Rudy Cislak. Amateurs Anthony Manto and Jason Gawlak finished at +20 and +27, respectively.
Merion G.C.’s Terry Hertzog, PGA, finished at 4-under-par for the event and took the Senior Division by three strokes over PGA Members Hugo Mazzaulpi, Linfield National G.C.; and Rich Steinmetz, Spring Ford C.C. Laurel Creek C.C.’s Dave Quinn, PGA, finished at even-par for solo fourth place, while three tied for fifth. PGA Life Member Michael Versuk ended with scores of 77-73–150, 10-over-par, to top the Joe Ambrose, Saucon Valley C.C., by nine strokes to win the Super Senior Division.
