Team Trauner Last In, Takes First at National Car Rental AC Team Stableford
Egg Harbor Township, N.J, – The 34 teams that gathered at Hidden Creek Golf Club for the National Car Rental AC Team Stableford Championship thought that June would bring summer weather, but instead, it turned out to be more like a chilly autumn afternoon. Despite the conditions, the sun decided to come out for the afternoon wave and all the competitors had an enjoyable day. All teams featured one PGA Professional and three amateurs and playing a stableford points system competing in both a Net and a Gross division.
In the Net Division the final pairing of the day Jonathan Trauner from GolfTEC Moorestown and his amateur partners Al Silvertri, Bob Davis, and Bernard Gmitter finished at top of the leaderboard with a score of 88 points beating out four teams with 86 points. Trauner eagled #8 followed with a birdie on #18. The Gross division was won by the team of John Kulhamer from Green Pond Country Club and his amateur partners Jason Wilson, Charlie Leon, and Tom Lusto with a score of 80 points. Kulhamer birdied back to back holes on 14 and 15.
The Philadelphia PGA would like to thank the tournament sponsors Golf Life Navigators and especially National Car Rental for bringing their mobile experience bus to the tournament and offering to re-grip the competitors’ clubs. Additionally, the Philadelphia PGA thanks the membership and staff of Hidden Creek Golf Club for their continued support. The next event on the Philly PGA schedule is this Tuesday, June 13th, at Springford Country Club for the Jack Jolly/ Golf Pride Championship.
