Barlow, Dully Win NEPGA Senior/Junior Championship at Alpine
Kernwood’s Frank Dully and Winchester’s Eric Barlow posted a combined 8-under par 64 to win the NEPGA Senior/Junior Championship on Monday at Alpine Country Club.
The win marks the second Senior/Junior victory in the last five seasons for Dully and Barlow, who fired a 61 at Walpole CC in 2017 for the victory.
“Frank made two birdies starting out right away which got us out to a hot start and then from there both of us were hitting some good shots and getting them on the green to give ourselves some chances at putts,” said Barlow.
The pair edged Todd Scarafoni and Jake Kramer by one shot to get the win.
Barlow and Dully began the shotgun on the par-3 15th hole with back-to-back birdies to get off to a quick start.
After making the turn to the front, the pair made bogey on the par-4 third hole but bounced back with an eagle on the par-5 fourth to get back on track. From there, the group added four more birdies to finish at -8.
“We took advantage of the par fives, then we played solid throughout and made a few birdies in addition,” Dully commented. The duo finished the par-5s at Alpine at 5-under par.
The second-place team of Scarafoni and Kramer started on 12 and posted five birdies in their first nine holes. The duo added another pair of birdies surrounded by pars to finish at 7-under 65.
A pair of teams finished the round at 6-under to claim a share of third place: John Hickson (Cape Neddick CC) and Nick Jagoe (Wanumetonomy G&CC) along with Chip Johnson (Hatherly CC) and Liam Friedman (Nashawtuc CC).
