Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club - Dade City
December 18-19, 2021


DADE CITY, Fla. – Four teams raised trophies at the Men’s Net Four-Ball Championship on Sunday at Lake Jovita G&CC. Kris & Paul Vassallo were victorious in the Under 50 Division, while Michael Mursten & Glenn Grossenbacher took home the win in the 50-59 Division. Robert Rosenberger & Rodger Daugherty earned the win in the 60-69 Division, while James Quick & Marson Germanetti picked up the win in the 70 & Over Division.

 

Under 50 Division

The Vassallo brothers saw themselves staring up at the leaderboard entering Round 2 after firing a 71 (-1) on Saturday. Their impressive 62 (-10) on Sunday was more than enough to erase the three shot deficit and squeak out a win over a jam packed leaderboard. Paul Vassallo came in with a clutch birdie on their final hole to defeat the team of David Mealey and Brian Soldano by one shot. Mealey & Soldano also came in with a fantastic Round 2 score of 62 (-10) to capture solo second place, while the team of Dylan Hissam & Blake Bartholomew rounded out the top three.

 

50-59 Division

Coming from behind was a common trend on Sunday, as Mursten & Grossenbacher clawed back to overcome a four shot deficit in Round 2. After shooting 73 (+1) on Saturday, they bounced back with a stellar round of 66 (-6). Mursten & Grossenbacher's Round 2 score was the low of the tournament within their division, and was enough to give them a two shot victory over the team of Brian King & Ken Wilson. Wilson & King finished solo second for the event, while Michael Mendoza & T Nowzamani came in third place.

 

60-69 Division

Rosenberger & Daugherty battled to the end in order to come out on top in the 60-69 Division. The duo fired a 67 (-5) in Round 1 and found themselves one shot back of Kevin Hewlett & Arne Victorine. In Round 2, Rosenberger & Daugherty followed up their great Round 1 score with an even better score of 66 (-6) on Sunday to capture a one shot lead. The team of Bruce Moskovciak & John Thompson put a great fight and nearly overcame a six shot deficit by shooting 64 (-8) in Round 2, but just came up short in the end to capture second place.

 

70 & Over Division

Germanetti & Quick successfully defended their title as they have now won back to back years in this Championship. After sitting three shots back at the completion of Round 1, they came back and shot an impressive Round 2 score of 68 (-4) in order to win by two shots over the team of Bobby Kilgore & David Norka. After holding the 18 hole lead, the team of Jack Christensen & Dennis Natale finished in third place.
