Familiar names top leaderboard at Senior Series Event
By WPGA • June 12, 2019
Hannastown Golf Club hosted the second of four WPGA Senior Series Events on Monday, and familiar names came out on top in the Senior and Super-Senior Divisions. Sean Knapp added another WPGA trophy to his collection after claiming the Senior Division, and three-time WPGA Amateur Champion, Vince Zachetti, won the Super-Senior Division. In the Net Division, M. Gardner followed up his 3rd place finish at the first Senior Series Event with a win this time around at Hannastown.
Knapp, a Hannastown Golf Club member, began his day with birdies at holes 1, 2 and 4 and turned in 3-under. With the back side seemingly playing a bit tougher, Knapp ended his day with an even par 70. Donald Dubyak’s steady back side that included a lone bogey on the 18th hole helped him to a runner-up finish in the Senior Division, three shots off Knapp’s pace. 2019 Semple Brothers Foursomes Champions, Perry Graciano rounded out the top three with a 4-over par 74.
In the Super-Senior Division, Vince Zachetti made three birdies on his opening nine holes and turned in 32. Zachetti, also a Hannastown Golf Club member, followed up the stellar front side with a 3-over par back nine and ended his day with a 70. Joe Cordaro was the only other player to make the turn under par in the Super-Senior division and he ended his day with a 2-over par 72, good enough for 2nd place and his second top five finish in the Senior Series. Don Erickson and Edward Mcfarland finished the day with matching 73’s and a tie for the 3rd position.
The Net Senior Series was the most tightly contested division of the day. M. Gardner and Bill Dewey both finished the day at 6-under, but after a card match, Gardner earned the top spot. This was the second straight runner-up finish in the Net Senior Series for Dewey.
The Senior Series will be off until August 29th, when we will head to Ligonier Country Club for the third event. For all the latest Western Pennsylvania Golf Association Updates, follow the WPGA on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
