Inaugural Hershey Amateur a big success

HERSHEY, Penn. (Oct. 14, 1009) -- Eight players were recognized last night for their achievement as individual Flight Winners in the First Annual Hershey Amateur hosted by the Hershey Golf Collection.

Clem Stone, a winner in the First Flight of the Senior Division from Pittsburgh, PA said, “what a blast, we’ve enjoyed two great days of golf, great food, and it’s not over yet!” The Flight Winners, along with 18 other participants, will square off in head to head NET stroke play competition on Wednesday, October 14th at the demanding Hershey Links, host site for the 2010 NCAA Division III Men’s Golf Championship next Spring.

With an impressive 2-hole “eagle-birdie” stretch on the back nine of the Hershey Country Club’s tough East Course, Patrick Marshalek of Exton, PA marched to a commanding 5-stroke victory in the Gross Division.
