David and Ron DeNunzio, Jeannette, won the Fred Brand Foursomes Championship at Longue Vue on May 19 with 71-73--144. The twins were playing with heavy hearts and dedication as their mom Denise lay near death. She passed away the following day after a five year battle with brain cancer. The duo talked about their mother's impact on their golf games as this non- golfer mom showed great interest and support ever since they began playing the game as kids.

On July 13, Dave and his father Ron, won the Father & Son Championship at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort with 71.

Last Friday, August 4, the twins won the Brothers Championship with a 64 at Shannopin.

Both the Brothers and Fred Brand competitions began in the 1950's. Dave and Ron DeNunzio are the first team ever to win both titles in the same hear. Dave DeNunzio is the only player ever to be on the winning teams of the Brand, Father/Son, and Brothers in the same year.
