Brandon Capone earned the Men’s Amateur title, Samantha Perrotta claimed the Women’s Amateur, and Dennis Murphy grabbed the Men’s Senior division at the 5th South Jersey Cup at Hidden Creek Golf Club in Egg Harbor Township, N.J.

Capone, the current women’s golf coach at Thomas Jefferson University, recorded five birdies on the 6,612-yard course en route to a 3-under par 68.

"It was really the putter," Capone explained of what was working well. "I just was making a ton of putts."

Capone, 31, also earned an exemption into the 123rd New Jersey Amateur Championship with his victory.

"It's good -- because qualifying for the Amateur, it's tough," Capone said of the exemption. "You have to play really good on those days, it's not a shoe-in, so it's really nice to not have the pressure to qualify. I can just get ready for the championship."

Mickey Kane shot a 12-under par 60 in the Women's Net division.
