A little overnight rain softened Stonebridge CC up a little just in time for the weekly pro-am on Monday, June 13th. Twenty-three teams came to play in the event on this nice summery day. The course was a lush green, the greens rolling fast, and the rough was punishing.
The Professional contest saw Brett Smestad of Rochester CC shot a 1 under 71 to take top honors today. Sam Cody, from the host course Stonebridge, shot an even par 72 and tied with Dan Wilkins of Laconia for 2nd place. Dan Kish of Atkinson and Matt Thibeault of Intervale came in at 73 to tie for 4th place. Cory Mansfield of Derryfield and Jim Gunnare of Whip Poor Will shot 75’s to tie for 6th. Jay Pollini of Ridgewood and Dan Gillis of Nabnassettshot a 76 to tie for 8th. Vince Molesky, also of Stonebridge, shot 78 to come in 10th place.
In the Team Gross contest the team from Rochester led by Brett Smestad came in with an 8 under par 64 to take first place. His team consisted of Ryan Martel, Bobby Marrulli, and Sean Johnson. There were 4 teams tied for 2nd place with 5 under 67’s. They were the teams of Pollini/Ridgewood, Molesky/Stonebridge, Kish/Atkinson, and Kingsley/Sunapee.
