Team Radley Run Edges Field at NCR French Creek Team Stableford
Elverson, Pa. – On Thursday 23 teams gathered at French Creek Golf Club for the National Car Rental French Creek Team Stableford. The teams not only had to tame the course, but they had to battle through one of the hottest days of the summer thus far. All teams featured one PGA Professional and three amateurs and played a Stableford points event competing for both Net and Gross division prizes.
In the Net division Jonathan Trauner (GolfTEC Moorestown) and his partners Scott Shawlinski, Skip Gmitter, and Al Silvestri turned in a score of 89 points, which included 7 net eagles, and 4 net birdies, but Shawn Hall (Radley Run CC) and his partners Jerry Shanahan, Mike Roy, and Jeffrey Gressel matched that score. However neither team would win as Brett Melton (Radley Run Country Club) and his amateur partners Alex Kane, Steve Murta, Jr., and Jim Krass finished with 90 points. They also tied for the Gross division top spot but teams can only win in one division.
In the Gross Division Justin Meyers (Golf Genius) and his partners Rob Blari, Gregg Russell, and Scott Blandford handed in their scorecard with 7 birdies and 3 eagles for a total of 81 points. Unfortunately for team Meyers, John Kulhamer (Green Pond Country Club) and his amateur partners Tom Lusto, Charles Leon, Jason Wilson topped the leaderboard. The team carded 11 gross birdies to finish their round with 82 points and the win.
The Philadelphia PGA would like to thank tournament sponsors National Car Rental as well as SynLawn. Additionally the Philadelphia PGA thanks the membership and staff of French Creek Golf Club for their continued support. The Philadelphia PGA’s next event is the GALV Lehigh Valley Open scheduled for Monday, July 24 – Tuesday, July 25 at Northampton Country Club.
