Annual Miniature Golf Tournament
Pat Guglielmo Memorial Tournament
On Sunday morning August 21st nearly forty players from four different states gathered for our 41st annual Pat Guglielmo Memorial Tournament.
This year featured a 54 hole (3 round) competition. A mix of both new names and familiar names filled the roster and all showed up ready to battle it out for the championship. Command Central was kept busy throughout the morning tallying scores as the contestants kept busy negotiating plateaus, windmills, and castles. Once the smoke cleared from the calculator and the ink finally dried on the parchment, some of the familiar names were found occupying the top spots on the leaderboard.
Tournament veteran Pat ‘The Putting Penguin’ Sheridan posted rounds of 39-39-38 to be 28 under par and claim a well-deserved victory as very few players have posted 3 rounds under 40 over the years. This was Pat’s 3rd win in the last four years! Congratulations and $100 to Pat!
Matt Liles, who is also no stranger to the leaderboard, also put up 3 great scores opening with the tournament low score of 36. He followed up with 2 straight rounds of 41, but that unfortunately was not quite enough to catch the winner … $50 to Matt.
Third place was decided by a nail-biting playoff between former champion Mark ‘The Highlighter’ Novicki and Tim ‘Player X’ Janus. A small crowd followed along showing encouragement for both players as they went hole by hole in a virtual stalemate and ended up deadlocked after 9 holes. Play then turned to sudden death. With 3rd place on the line, you could tell Tim and his caddy Joey Chestnut knew it was time to really stay focused on the task at hand and put aside any ‘hot dogging’ out there. Mark remained focused as well as this match went 5 sudden death holes before we were finally able to assign the 3rd spot and $40 to Tim Janus.
In our lower bracket, $40 went to James Costa for taking the top spot, D.J. Torroni took home $20 for second and Joe Kestenbaum took $15 for third. Hole in one prizes went out to Matt Liles and Soukie Outhavong for aces on hole #8 and Chase Lagano and Soukie Outhavong again on #13.
Once again, an important winner in this event is the Jimmy Fund and Children’s Cancer Center where their work is well above par year after year. Thanks to our hosts the Guglielmo Family, all tournament participants, and various donations, $1275 was raised for those great organizations!! Congratulations to all of our winners and all participants on completing another day/year of competition and fun! Look for our 42nd annual tournament in August of 2023.
HAPPY EVERYTHING! and STAY SAFE!
