Llanerch, Merion, Philmont and White Manor mix wins Sr. Four-Man Team

  LITITZ, Pa. - Two sensational squads scorched Bent Creek CC Thursday (par 71, 6,282 yards) to the tune of an 8-under-par 134 in the Senior Four-Man Team.

  To determine a victor, the Golf Association of Philadelphia uses the USGA-recommended method of low gross, back nine scores. The team of Don Donatoni of White Manor CC, Carl Everett of Merion GC, Neil McDermott of Llanerch CC and Michael Rose of Philmont CC edged the team of Thomas Bartolacci, Jr. of Saucon Valley CC, John Emmel, Jr. of Links GC, Douglas Fraser of Galloway National GC and Terrence Sawyer of Commonwealth National GC by four strokes. The winning team birdied six of its final nine holes.

From left to right: Don Donatoni, Michael Rose
Carl Everett and Neil McDermott
  "We got on a run. Everybody contributed on every hole on the back nine, which wasn't the case on the front," Donatoni said. "Everybody's jets kicked in. It was a real team effort. We rose from the ashes. It just goes to show that no matter how far behind you are in an event like this, you're still in it."

  Donatoni and his teammates trailed Bartolacci, Emmel, Fraser and Sawyer by four strokes at the turn. The team's scorecared showed three birdies and a bogey on the front nine. Donatoni nabbed red figures on Nos. 1 (par 4, 400 yards) and 4 (par 4, 395 yards). On the first, he chipped in from the right rough after bumping his 7-iron 167 yards. He rolled in a 10-footer on No. 4 after striking his 8-iron 154 yards. The team's lone bogey occured on the par 4, 388-yard No. 8, but it didn't shatter its spirits.

  "That's what got us going," Donatoni, of Malvern, Pa., said. "Once we changed the order on the tee, we got a little mojo."

  Cue the "never say day" mantra. Rose, of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., stamped the group's outward tour with a birdie thanks an 87-yard sand wedge set-up.

  "We did talk amongst ourselves and said we could do a lot better than this," McDermott said. "I think we got a little bit more into a grind mode. We kind of thought we were a little out of reach after the first nine."

  And then, red figures dropped rapidly. Donatoni continued his steady play on the par 4, 391-yard 10th hole. He stuck his 9-iron 134 yards and sunk an uphill 20-footer. Everett, of Havertown, Pa., stepped up to the birdie plate on No. 11 (par 4, 356 yards). He nailed his pitching wedge 110 yards and delicately pushed in a three-footer. Donatoni then hit a half pitching wedge into the No. 12 (par 5, 500 yards) green and drained a left-to-right breaking 18-footer for birdie. Rose hammered his 3-hybird 190 yards to five feet and cleaned up the birdie try. McDermott, of Newtown Square, Pa., converted a clutch under-par chance after a near scare on No. 17 (par 4, 307 yards).

  "It did flirt with the out-of-bounds. However, it did end up in bounds," he said. "I hit sand wedge to 15 feet and I made the putt. But honestly, I had a very good team today. My contributions were not as great as the other guys, but I did manage to contribute on 17."

  Everett rolled in a three-footer for birdie on No. 18 (par 5, 516 yards) to cap the team's fantastic finish.

  In 2003, Everett, McDermott and Rose, along with Frank Polizzi, Sr. of Aronimink GC, won the Senior Four-Man Team at Plymouth CC. That same trio also captured the tournament in 2005 and 2006 alongside Daniel Burton of Bent Creek CC.

Terrance Sawyer, Thomas Bartolacci, Jr.,
John Emmel, Jr. and Douglas Fraser embrace
following their round Thursday.
  Bartolacci, Emmel, Fraser and Sawyer experieced an unfortunate reversal of fortunes. The team birdied six of its first seven holes.

  "If you got three four chances on a hole, you had to make birdies," Emmel said.

  "The approach was to have fun and holler at guys when they screwed up," Bartolacci added.

  Bartolacci, of Washington Crossing, Pa., began the birdie barrage by drilling his 9-iron 130 yards and draining a 20-footer. Sawyer, of Yardley, Pa., smashed his 4-utilty to eight feet on No. 2 (par 3, 175 yards). It was Fraser's birdie turn on No. 3 (par 4, 396 yards). His 7-iron sailed 150 yards and settled 10-feet from the flagstick. Emmel's downhill 35-footer discovered the bottom of the No. 4 (par 4, 395 yards) jar. On No. 5 (par 4, 328 yards), Fraser, of Mays Landing, N.J., knocked his wedge 122 yards to 12-feet and cleaned up the birdie putt. Sawyer smacked a sand wedge 74 yards to three-feet for the team's final frontside birdie.

  The par 3, 145-yard 13th hole damaged the squad's scorecard. Sawyer three-putted from 18-feet; Bartolacci and Fraser each caught the frontside bunkers and couldn't get up-and-down, and Emmel, of Philadelphia, Pa., missed the green right.

  Sawyer, along Overbrook GC’s Frank McFadden, Andy and Raymond Thompson, won last year's Senior Four-Man Team at Meadowlands CC.

  Spring Ford CC's Carmen Caruso, Rick Coroniti, Robert Jenkins and William Penney registered a 122 to win the Net Division.
