amateurgolf.com Pinehurst Invitational: Round 2 results

VILLAGE of PINEHURST, North Carolina (November 3, 2008) -- Something about Pinehurst Number 6 appealed to the spirited competitors from the Ross Team, as they closed a 6-point deficit down to a 1-point deficit heading into tomorrow's singles matches at the Pinehurst Invitational.

A second-straight day of four ball match play saw several upsets, including a Czarnecki family grudge match that saw the father and son team of Jack and Jay Czarnecki sweep Jay's brothers Eric and Kevin for 3 points. Eric and Kevin looked to be unbeatable after a best-ball net of 62 on Sunday at No. 4. As it worked out, they still won the Net medal play title by 5 strokes over Gary Meadors and Roy Paxson from Florida. Paxson and Meadors have picked up a perfect 6 points in their two days of matches.

In the Championship Division, Danny Le of Bridgestone Golf continued to play solid golf, but his shoulders got a bit tired as Pete Wlodkowski of amateurgolf.com couldn't muster up any of his Sunday birdie magic. The two finished at 1-over par for the 36 holes, to tie for low gross with the father and son team of Doug and Dan Potter of Idaho.

"I think you should card off from the first hole of the first round," quipped the elder Potter. (The two had birdied the first two holes that day...)

The round of the day went to Carl Everett and Mike Miller, who in the over-50 senior division fired a best ball 67. Everett shot 3-under 68 on his own ball, on a day that saw none of the players remove their wind jackets as a light mist blew into the area overnight. Miller was there when Everett needed him, at the last hole, a bear of a par-4 that played into the teeth of the wind. "I got up and down from the bunker, what can I say," remarked Miller.

Second round results from the Inaugural amateurgolf.com Pinehurst Invitational follow. Please note: The 36-hole best-ball competition concluded today. Tuesday's singles matches will determine the final outcome of the Ryder Cup-style team event -- the "Ross" and "Fazio" teams are separated by a single point and 36 points are up for grabs in the (12) 3-point matches on Tuesday at Pinehurst No. 2.

Join us in historic Pinehurst, North Carolina as we kick off an event we plan on becoming a regular part of our Tournament Series' "travel events" that now includes annual stops in Bandon Dunes, Oregon and Kiawah Island, South Carolina. We'll play the famed No. 2 course in the final round, and also No's. 4 and 6. We never promise perfect weather (it's golf, after all) but the Pinehurst area usually enjoys a warm, dry climate thanks to the sheltering Appalachian Mountains which stave the cold Midwestern winds. And temperatures should range in the 60's and 70's on the high side with lows in the 40's and 50's. We are playing both courses being used for the 2008 US Amateur, being played August 23-26.

Please see the registration page for package prices and details. All packages include:

(3) Nights lodging in either Carolina or Manor Inn (nights of Nov 1-2-3 with dept. on Nov. 4)
(3) Rounds of Golf including one round on No. 2
(3) Breakfasts
(1) Welcome Reception
(1) Tournament Dinner

* plus: Tournament trophies and a nice tee gift from Cutter & Buck, prizes from Bridgestone Golf, Lamkin Grips, and UST Golf Shafts
* optional: Skins and Overall prize pool to be collected at the welcome reception

Format:
We'll play three days of two man best-ball (women's division if enough players) and break the field up into scratch, net, and by-age flights (e.g. Masters or Senior) based on number of players who register. We always have enough scratch players in these events, and expect a first year field of 36-48 players.

Teams:
You may register as a team (indicate your partner's name in the "comments" field when registering) or as an individual (if registering as an individual, please select one of the single occupancy lodging options only). Individuals will be paired by amateurgolf.com. Don't hesitate to register in this manner...you might make a lifelong friend!
