W. Penn. Fred Brand Foursomes: Malcom Spatz and Jonathan Thomas Capture Title
VERONA, PA (May 9, 2016) - After 36-holes of golf on Monday Malcom Spatz and Jonathan Thomas captured the Western Pennsylvania Fred Brand Foursomes title with a score of 2-over. The winning duo combined scores of 70-72 at Longue Vue Club on their way to a one-stroke victory.

After an opening round even-par 70 Spatz and Thomas were struggling in the second round and through 11 holes they were 3-over. Then came the moment of the afternoon as they converted an unexpected eagle two on the short par-4 13th. They did bogey the ensuing hole but were able to rebound with a birdie on 15 to create the separation they needed.

Grant Engel and Steve Thomas finished one-stroke behind at 3-over in second. The teams of Sean Knapp and Nathan Smith; Darin Kowalski and Arnold Cutrell were third following a 5-over tally. Tom and Chuck Nettles rounded out the top-five finishing fifth with a 6-over score.


The Foursomes Championship championship was started in in 1954 by Jack and Fred Brand, Jr. in honor of their father, Fred Brand, Sr. who was a long time golf professional at Allegheny Country Club and winner of four WPGA Open Championships. The event consists of thirty- six holes of stroke play, foursomes format. The event has traditionally started the Association's championship season and is our most popular team event.
