Massachusetts (MGA) Four-Ball Championship

DENNIS, MA (May 9, 2006) -- The cold rain and wind got the better of the 26th playing of the Massachusetts Four-Ball Championship, which was held this week at Dennis Pines Golf Course and Dennis Highlands Golf Course.

Due to inclement weather and unplayable conditions on both courses on Tuesday afternoon, the second round of play has been suspended. As a result of the conditions, the Town of Dennis has graciously allowed the MGA to reschedule the second round of the tournament for Monday, June 26th. All competitors will be asked to return to Cape Cod on that date to compete in the second and final round of play. The original second round tee times and course assignments will be used.

All scores posted this afternoon by the morning group will be discarded. The leaderboard from the first round will stand. Following Monday's first round of play, defending champions StevenAlminas (Elmcrest CC) and Peter Alminas (Elmcrest CC) held a one-stroke lead over Aaron Siekierski (Webster-Dudley GC) and Jason Parajeckas (Woburn CC).

All players who withdrew the day of the second round will be allowed to compete on June 26 th under the USGA Decision 33-2D/3, which states that "for any reason the course is not in a playable condition… it may… declare play null and void and cancel all scores for the round in question. When a round is canceled, all penalties incurred in that round are canceled."

All competitors will be notified by email or U.S. Postal mail about the rescheduling of the second round of play. Complete starting times and pairings for that round will be distributed to media prior to that date.
