Kamargo brothers win the Washington Metropolitan Four-Ball Championship
Columbia, Wash. D.C (Oct. 18, 2011) -- Brothers Michael and Alex Kamargo, veterans of countless area competitions even though only in their early twenties, combined for six birdies on a clean card to edge two even more veteran players, Vance Welch and Michael Wah, by one stroke in the 2011 WMGA Four-Ball at the always tough Hobbits Glen. Michael contributed four birdies (#s 2, 10, 15 and 18) and Alex two (#s 4 and 7) for a 33-33--66. The brothers were heard to say, "It was an honor to somehow come out ahead against Vance and Mike, who we regard as one of the foremost four-ball teams in the area." Welch and Wah captured a prestigous Belle Haven Four-Ball title only a few years ago.
Welch and Wah, key members of UMD's MSGA and WMGA 2011 Team champions, bolted out of the gate fast with a Wah eagle on the 521-yard second and two Wah birdies on #s 5 and 6 and a turn score of four-under 32. Welch birdied #s 12 and 17 but, playing with the Kamargo Team, Welch and Wah had a negative reversal of fortune on 18 with a bogey to the Kamargo birdie.
Returning two-under par 70s were the teams of Josh Jenkins and Blair Kennedy (UMD), teenagers Ethan Wasil and Tyler Silberberg (Hobbits Glen) and Lance Rice and Mike Brennan (River Creek). At even par were Matt Brady and Justin Collins (Crofton/Norbeck), Jeff Lim-Sharpe and Matt Hess (Blue Mash/Black Rock), Jeff Farrall and Carlo Faudale (Glenn Dale) and Kevin Seekford and Rick Peel (Trump National DC/Westwood).
