Spring Ford CC's Shemanski snags Spring Net Championship

   POTTSTOWN, Pa. – Chet Shemanski of Spring Ford CC carded a 9-under-par 62 (net) to win the Spring Net Championship at Raven’s Claw GC (par 71, 6,069 yards) Monday.

   “It was a great round. It was the lowest score I ever shot,” he said. “It felt good. I was just hitting fairways and greens, and the putts were going in. My iron game was on today. It was just one of those things.”

   Shemanski, a 12-handicap, fired a 20-feet birdie on No. 5 (par 4, 403 yards) along with nine net birdies. However, the Collegeville, Pa. resident felt that he left a lot out on the greens.

   “I lipped out a lot. I had a lot (of birdies) that could’ve gone in very easily,” he said.

   Shemanski, 46, competed in his first Spring Net Championship after returning from a trip to Hilton Head, S.C.

   “It was a nice little tune-up for today,” he said. “I shot my handicap. I’ve been playing a lot lately, and I’ve been playing well.”

   Some players within the 79-player field dealt with problems in the hazard throughout the day. Shemanski didn’t seem to mind the tough conditions.

   “Honestly, I didn’t think this course was that difficult for me,” he said. “I kept the ball in play. I didn’t really try to do too much.

   “I’m pretty happy with the way I played.”

   Greg McLaughlin of Spring Ford CC, Jason Lerner of Meadowlands CC and Jules Quinones of Blue Bell CC each finished tied for second overall with a net 5-under-par 66.

   The Spring Net Championship, formerly known as First Handicap Championship, began in 1946. This year, participants were invited to bring a friend who was a non-GAP member,
