A stellar three-day, 54-hole effort by Pennsbury High School grad Jackie Rogowicz propelled Penn State University to the Nittany Lion Invitational championship.
Rogowicz opened with a 4-under-par 68, and then closed with rounds of 74 and 75 for a 218 total, third best in the individual standings. That was the low score on the PSU team, which finished the event with 885 total strokes, well ahead of Columbia at 907.
Elsewhere around the Bucks County links, Dave Drabot scored a hole in one on the third hole at Northampton Valley-Country Club. Head professional Vin Ciarlone reports Drabot used a seven wood on the 192-yard test, which was witnessed by Herb Rolland and Jim Zemanek. Drabot scored an ace on the same hole in 2014, and also has an ace on the NVCC 15th hole.
The Giordano brothers, Vince and John, easily claimed the NVCC Member-Member Championship with a sparkling 66, four shots ahead of Duane Walker and Tim Whartenby. Kevin and Jeff Hilton were third at 74.
The net division saw club champion Jonathan Radick and John Buff Radick card a 64 and score a 2-shot win over Jerry Powell and J.J. Johnson. Another shot back was the team of Tom and Matt Kothe.
In the Philadelphia Public Links Golf Association Fall Classic, John Buliga teamed with John Stepanik for a 61 and two shot victory over Glenn Smeraglio and Tom Timby in play at Jeffersonville. CHris Terebesi teamed with Rick Umani for a 67 and the Senior Division championship.
