McCall G&CC’s Neumann takes Fall Net in scorecard playoff

  HONEY BROOK, Pa.–Walt Neumann of McCall G&CC, a veteran of Golf Association of Philadelphia Net Championships, finally did it. A 10-year circuit veteran and perennial Net Championship contender, Neumann carded a net 4-under-par 66 on Monday at Honeybrook GC (par 70, 6,065 yards) and survived a scorecard playoff to take the 62nd Fall Net Championship. Neumann, a 7 handicap, and Kip Barto of Heidelberg CC, an 8 handicap, both posted 66s, sending the duo to the USGA’s scorecard tiebreaking procedure, the back nine total. Neumann took the top prize posting a net 32 on the back nine compared to Barto’s 34.

  "I started to think about it on 16-17-18 but I told myself someone always goes real low and that calmed me down," said Neumann, 43, of Upper Moreland, Pa. "I’ve played in at least one of these for 10 years. I like to play in these tournaments and I look forward to it."

  Neumann, who finished with a gross score of 3-over-par 73 carded three birdies on the day, including a short one on No. 18 (par 4, 355 yards) that, unbeknownst to him at the time, clinched the victory. He hit his 56-degree wedge from 110 yards to two feet.

  "I told myself to stay aggressive," said Neumann of his final birdie. "I wasn’t going to play safe."

  Neumann, an 11-year veteran lineman at PECO, registered a 15-foot birdie on No. 7 (par 4, 336 yards) and another on No. 12 (par 5, 561 yards).

  Barto, 57, of Reading, Pa., carded a gross score of 74.

  "I figured it was a good score," said Barto. "I didn’t have any idea what it would take to win this."

  Barto has two birdies, both on the front nine, before closing out with a 4-over-par 39.

  Neumann had a 38 on the front before coming inward in even par.
