Playing in the final group of the day, the Radley Run Country Club pair of Shawn Hall and Stewart Carrihill used a red-hot finish over the back nine at Applebrook Golf Club in East Goshen to claim a one-shot victory in the Philadelphia Section PGA’s National Car Rental Pro-Scratch Championship Tuesday.
Hall and Carrihill made the turn at 1-under, but then ripped off six birdies on the final nine holes in the better-ball-of-partners format for a 7-under 64.
The Cripple Creek Golf & Country Club team of John Lynch and Jay Whitby were in the first group of the day and put a 6-under 65 on the board. That figure was matched by the homestanding Applebrook duo of Dave McNabb and Chris Lawler. But the late burst by Hall and Carrihill relegated the co-leaders in the clubhouse to a tie for second.
Four teams finished in a tie for fourth at 5-under 66. Those teams were: Hugo Mazzalupi and Jose Rovelli of Patriots Glen National Golf Club; Eric McNamee and Fred Shaw of Golf Galaxy – Montgomery; Eric Schultz and Frank Natale of Sunnybrook Golf Club; and Andrew Turner and Nicky Marrollo of Whitford Country Club.
Four more teams ended up in a tie for eighth at 4-under 67. Included in that group were: Ryan Lagergren and Stonewall club champion Dave Gibbons; Barry Dear and Ryan Cass of Twisted Dune Golf Club; Jeff Fick and Joe Buffo of Chapel Hill Golf Club; and Mike Meisenzahl and Tom Spano of Shore Gate Golf Club.
