Barkley, Coassolo, Lavin, Moran prove to be a winning Four-Man Team

   They bonded as the guys you often see staring at the scoreboard at Golf Association of Philadelphia major championships, wondering if that missed four-footer for par on 16 was going to doom them to one of those messy 8-for-2 playoffs for the last berth in match play or in a qualifier.
   But there was no such angst in the GAP Four-Man Team Championship Thursday as Jason Barkley of Moselem Springs Golf Club, Mark Coassoio of Brookside Country Club of Allentown, Shawn Lavin of Rolling Green Golf Club and Peter Moran of Whitford Country Club came together to post a two-best-balls-of-four total of 9-under-par 133 at Penn Oaks Golf Club to claim a two-shot victory.
   They are 40-somethings from all over the southeastern Pennsylvania map, Barkley from Kutztown, Coassoio from Macungie, Lavin from Drexel Hill and Moran from Chester Springs, but they proved to be the perfect four-man team. The formula, as Moran explained it, is pretty simple.
   “Making sure you get a group of guys that you like together is most important out here,” Moran told the GAP website.
   Moran had the best day, making six birdies over the 6,190-yard, par-71 Penn Oaks layout, including a near ace at the 149-yard 15th hole. But everybody on the team had a hand in this victory.
   Barkley, Coassolo, Lavin and Moran finished two shots ahead of the defending champions, a foursome from Riverton Country Club that included David Gall, Kevin Kramarski, Ben Litt and Phillip Villari Jr., who posted a 7-uneder 135 total.
   Stephen Barry of Sakima Country Club, Ryan Cass of Merchantville Country Club and the Running Deer Golf Club pair of Jacob Hanzel and Chris Meares formed the third-place team, which put up a 4-under 138 total.
   Doug Fedoryshyn may have left Concord Country Club for Applebrook Golf Club, but he teamed up with three of his old Concord buddies, Larry Benedetto, Nick Gazonas and Joseph Jachetti to finish fourth at 3-under 139.
   The Rolling Green quartet of Craig Aronchick, Robert Billings, Jack Helms and Nick Verrecchio matched par at 142 to take fifth.
   Sixth place went to Donald Kozik of McCall Golf & Country Club, Kevin Quimby of Moselem Springs and two guys from the host course of Penn Oaks, Brian Hamilton and Todd Price, who carded a 1-over 143.
   Two teams finished tied for seventh at 2-over 144.
   One of those teams was comprised of Brad Comforth of Loch Nairn Golf Club, Dan Smith of Running Deer and the Inniscrone Golf Club pair of Joe Spitaleri and Jian Zhang. The other foursome included Brintan Madonna of Lancaster Country Club, Jared Texter of Conestoga Country Club and Woodstone Country Club pair of Shawn Hughes and Nicholas Lukow.
   Michael Manci of Huntsville Golf Club and the Glen Oak Country Club trio of Michael Kerzetski, David Maddock and Frank Petrillo finished ninth at 3-over 145.
   Rounding out the top 10 was the foursome of Wes Kerr of Hidden Creek Country Club and the Tavistock Country Club trio of Stephen Bender, Brett Mower and Michael Sieck, who teamed up for a 4-over 146 total.

Parrini's 69 at Bayside a good first step on the road to qualifying for Junior PGA Championship

   It was an interesting mix of guys who competed in this week's Golf Association of Philadelphia’s 103rd Junior Boys’ Championship, guys who stuck it out for three rounds of the Philadelphia Section PGA Junior Tour’s Junior Golf Scoreboard Mizuno Rehoboth Beach Series this week and some Junior Tour regulars.
   And Hannah Lydic, too.
   It was a Junior PGA Championship Qualifier held Thursday at the Bayside Resort in Selbyville, Del. The top third of boys 13 to 18 and the top two nine-holers advanced to the final stage of Junior PGA Championship qualifying, which will be held next month.
   The Girls Junior PGA Championship and the Junior PGA Championship have expanded this year. In the past, each of the 41 PGA sections sent one boy and one girl to the national event, but this year each section will send two boys and two girls.
   The Country Club of St. Albans in St. Albans, Mo. will host the Girls Junior PGA Championship July 18 to 21 and the Junior PGA Championship from July 31 to Aug. 1.
   Joe Parrini of York had the day’s best score, a sparkling 3-under-par 69 over the 6,289-yard, par-72 Bayside layout. Parrini had five birdies, rattling off three in a row on the 13th, 14th and 15th holes.
Ben Pochet, the District One Class AAA champion as a junior at Spring-Ford last fall, was the runnerup at 1-over 73. Pochet finished second in qualifying for the GAP Junior Boys on his home course, Spring-Ford Country Club, before falling in the first round of match play.
   Pochet is halfway to a big summertime double for a junior golfer in this area. He has already earned a trip to the U.S. Junior Amateur in a qualifier last week at Makefield Highlands Golf  Club. If he can make it to the Junior PGA Championship, he would match the feat accomplished by his buddy and Pioneer Athletic Conference rival Kyle Vance, the former Methacton standout,  last summer.
   Austin Barbin of Elkton, Md. finished third with a 2-over 74 and earned low-Barbin honors, not the easiest of feats.
   Older brother Zachary finished in the group tied for fourth with a 75. Zachary Barbin also qualified for the championship flight in the GAP Junior Boys and knocked off Pochet in the opening round of match play before falling in the quarterfinals.
   Also in that group tied for fourth at 75 was Nicholas Covey of Easton, Md., who captured top honors in the Rehoboth Beach Series highlighted by a sparkling 1-under 70 at Kings Creek Country Club.
   Rounding out the trio at 75 was Luca Jezzeny of Furlong.
   Caleb Ryan, another player who earned a spot in the championship flight in the GAP Junior Boys, finished alone in seventh with a 76. Younger brother Joshua won the 13-to-15 division Thursday at Bayside with an 80 and joined his brother in advancing to the final round of qualifying for the Junior PGA Championship.
   Joshua Ryan was the only player in the 13-to-15 division to advance.
   Timothy Chaykosky Jr. of Ambler finished alone in eighth in the 16-to-18 division, a shot behind Caleb Ryan with a 77.
   Nathan Potts of Wilmington, Del., Bryan Donato of Chester Springs and Andrew Lombardo of Lansdale finished tied for ninth, each carding a 79.
   Heading the group of four players who finished tied for 12th at 80 and grabbed the final berths in the next round of qualifying, along with Joshua Ryan, was Frankie Markiewicz of Middletown, Del. Markiewicz also teed it up in all three legs of the Rehoboth Beach Series and was the runnerup to Covey for the series.
   Also in the group at 80 were Brady St. Pierre and Matthew Bricker, both of York, and Andrew Wallace of Narberth.
   Joshua Ryan’s winning 80 in the 13-to-15 division was highlighted by a birdie at the 14th hole. Jake Maddaloni of Newtown Square was the runnerup with an 82 that included a pair of birdies, one on each side at Bayside.
   Alec Stern of Bryn Mawr finished third with an 87. Roy Anderson of Chadds Ford, who was the 13-to-15 Rehoboth Beach Series winner, was another shot back in fourth with an 88. Anderson’s fellow Chadds Ford resident, Jack Cooley, was another shot behind Anderson in fifth with an 89.
   The third member of the Barbin contingent, Evan, finished sixth with a 91. Colby Hook of Selbyville, Del. and Jack Fialko of Berwyn shared seventh place at 92. Kevin Motil of Sewell, N.J. finished ninth with a 93.
   Rounding out the top 10 was Tyler Kipp of Reading with a 94. Kipp teed it up in all three legs of the Rehoboth Beach Series and was the runnerup to Anderson in the 13-to-15 division.
   Olivia Schwandt of Wilmington, Del. was the only competitor in the girls 16-to-18 division and her 94 gave her her first Junior Tour victory of the season.
   It’s been a winning week for Hannah Lydic of Ocean View, Del. Lydic fired a 39 on the back nine at Bayside on her way to an 81 Thursday that beat sister Sarah by 11 shots to win the 13-to-15 division. Hannah Lydic won every stop on the Rehoboth Beach Series, which, of course, gave her the series title. So yeah, pretty good week for Hannah Lydic.
   Sarah Lydic was the runnerup to, whom I’m guessing is, her big sister with a 92.
   It was a pretty good week as well for Benjamin Saggers of West Chester, who bested the field of nine-holers with a 5-over 41. Saggers was the Rehoboth Beach Series winner among the nine-holers.
The second ticket to the next round of Junior PGA qualifying went to Sawyer Brockstedt of Rehoboth Beach, Del., who was just a shot behind Saggers with a 42. She also played in all three legs of the Rehoboth Beach Series and was third in the series overall.
   Henry Stone of Kennett Square finished third with a 45 and Davin Lysik of Wilmington and Megan Adelman of Bryn Mawr shared fourth place at 46. Bret Bergey of Downingtown finished sixth with a 48 and Griffin Gaughan of Avondale was seventh with a 53.

Wagner claims a Junior Tour win at Woodstone

   Brett Wagner of Cresco birdied two of the par-3s on his way to a 7-over-par 79 to win the 16-to-18 division in a Philadelphia Section PGA Junior Tour stop Wednesday at the Woodstone Country Club & Lodge in Danielsville.
   Andrew Benner of Hellertown and Jordan Pick of Sugarloaf shared runnerup honors, each carding an 82 over the 6,428-yard, par-72 Woodstone layout.
   Jacob Aaron of Harrisburg finished fourth with an 84, Colin Kear of Doylestown was fifth with a 94 and Mason Asadoorian of Richboro was sixth with a 100.
   Corey Haydu of Doylestown carded an 88 to win the 13-to-15 division for his first career Junior Tour victory. Grey Konta of Hummelstown was the runnerup with a 114.
   Shea Murphy of Goldey-Beacom College and Wilmington, Del. was the only player to tee it up the men’s 17-to-24 division and thus was the winner with an 80. A birdie at third hole highlighted his round.
   Olivia Patrow of East Stroudsburg extended her Junior Tour winning streak to four straight as she took the girls 16-to-18 division with a 101. Elaina McGarrigle of Wernersville was a shot behind Patrow in second with a 102.
   Grace Babinchak of Hazleton was the ony girl to  tee it up in the 13-to-15 and claimed the win with a 104.
   Connor Gherghel of Orwigsburg bested the field of nine-holers making a birdie on his second hole on his way to a 7-over 43. Griffin Walizer of McElhattan was the runnerup with a 56.
   Rhianna Gooneratne of Plymouth Meeting finished third with a 64 and Aaron Combs of Basking Ridge, N.J. was fourth with a 65.
