Marshfield, MA- Marshfield Country Club played host to the Massachusetts Chapter’s 2nd Pro-Pro in as many weeks. The classic Wayne E. Stiles design, which debuted in 1922, was a hit amongst the PGA Professionals that teed it up on Tuesday.
Ed Kirby, PGA (The Aquidneck Club) and John Rainone, PGA (North Kingstown Golf Course) went home victorious after their impressive round of 4-under 66. Starting on the 13th hole, Kirby and Rainone got off to a quick start with a birdie on the difficult par-3 14th. The duo then went on to make birdie on the 17th and 1st hole, good for 3-under in their first nine holes. Their steady play the rest of the way was good enough to keep them one shot ahead of the field.
In a three-way tie for second, shooting 3-under 67 were the teams of Jim Clay (New Seabury) and Andrew Stolze (New Seabury), Aaron Harper (Ipswich CC) and Frank LaVacca (Ipswich CC), and Todd Scarafoni (Bass Rocks GC) and Frank Dully (Kernwood CC). Among the highlights of the day was Clay’s eagle on the drivable 304 yard par-4 7th hole.
On behalf of the entire Massachusetts Chapter, thank you to Marshfield Country Club and PGA Professionals James Antonelli and Alec Vozzella, as well as Superintendent Tom Harrington for their generous hospitality. The Chapter would also like to thank Vineyard Vines and representative Chip Hayes who provided the field with a fantastic tee gift.
