History at the Hudson

Bruso captures consecutive title at Duxbury

Duxbury, MA

 

Duxbury Yacht Club was once again host to the Hudson Cup. Thursday May, 17th as 48 competitors showed up to give this beautiful south shore course a go. Conditions were not ideal to start the day, with temperatures in the low 50s and light rain until 11am. Despite the rain competitors spoke highly of the course.

 

Bob Bruso, 2017 champion was looking to continue his success at Duxbury Yacht Club. “I love this golf course; I always play pretty well here” said Bruso before his 8:50am tee time. 

 

Stroke Play Starts at Shelter

Venezio and Martin card 67s to tie for first Stroke Play crown

CHARLESTOWN, RI - Dan Venezio, PGA (Portland CC) and Jeff Martin, PGA (Wollaston GC) each carded a score of 67 (-4) to finish tied for the top spot at Shelter Harbor Golf Club on Tuesday. It was the opening event in the Stroke Play Series Calendar.

 

Venezio was looking to get back in the swing of things heading into Tuesday, admitting he hadn’t gotten to play very much this season. If he was out of practice, it certainly didn’t show, as he made five birdies on the front side of the Hurdzan and Fry designed course. On the back, he had a couple of missteps, making a double-bogey on 11 and bogey on 17; but he was able to regain some lost ground with two more birdies on 12 and 15. All things considered, he finished with a 67 (-4) and tied for first. 

 

“I didn’t expect it, I was honestly using it as a tune up,” said Venezio. “I really came out today just looking to have a fun day on the golf course and get to see a great golf course and I surprised myself, I just had it today.”

 

Martin too found success on the course, but couldn’t break par as often as Venezio. On the front side, he made eight straight pars, and finally notched a birdie on the ninth. On the back, he made an eagle on the par-5, 12th hole after hitting a towering tee shot. He followed it up with more clean play: another birdie on 13 and more pars. Martin didn’t make a bogey on the day, and finished with a clean four-under-par (67).
