Paesani & Egan Capture Winter ProPro
If the end of 2018 wasn’t outstanding for John Paesani, PGA from The Bay Club at Mattapoisett (ahem, cashing out the Hole in One Pool for $24,000), he is starting 2019 on the same foot after today’s win at the NEPGA Winter ProPro. Paesani teamed with his colleague Ben Egan, PGA and the duo fired a 7-under par 65 on the course that hosted the PGA TOUR for over 30 years.
Paesani and Egan combined for 7 birdies and no bogeys, with Paesani carding four and Egan three over the 6,500 yard layout. In fact, Paesani shot 68 on his own ball, an impressive score regarless of the format. The course played tough with varying wind speeds and unseasonably chilly temperatures with mixed sunshine, and many of the Professionals were chipping off some rust midway through their winter season.
Three teams carded a 5-under 67 to finish tied for second place. The brotherly duo of Steve and Tom Rourke from Event-Man and Cummaquid respectively, Rico Riciputi and Bob Bruso from Wentworth by the Sea and Blackstone National respectively, and 2018 champions Jeff Seavey and Shawn Warren of Samoset Resort and Falmouth respectively.
