42nd Baltusrol Invitational
The Club hosted the 42nd Baltusrol Invitational on August 16–17, 2018. Three rounds of golf were played over three different formats. Day one consisted of two rounds: better ball of partners and alternate shot on the Lower Course, while on day two, round 3 was played on the Upper Course in an aggregate (combined score) format.
In the Mid-Am Division four-time champion Arnie Cutrell (Greensburg, PA) paired up with Matt Sughrue, (Arlington, VA) a very accomplished amateur player himself. Arnie and Matt were able to shoot a total of 15 under par with a very impressive aggregate score on day two of 8 under par. They were able to secure first place by four shots over Joseph Deraney (Lexington CC) and Mike Stamberger (Brielle, NJ). Baltusrol Member, Roger Hoit (four-time champion) and defending champion with his partner Matthew Swan (Atlanta, GA) secured third place at 10 under par.
In the Senior Division, Bob Beck (Allentown, PA) and Bill Charpek (Red Bank, NJ) came out on top by seven shots with a total of one over par. In second place was Jim Craffey (Allendale, NJ) and partner Phil Fabrizio (Fair Lawn, NJ). Baltusrol member Roger Nettune and his partner Jay Sessa (Garden City, NY) secured third place.
Thank you to all the participants that made the 42nd Baltusrol Invitational such a special event.
