Jordan Rogers and Steven Sveda teed off early Sunday, got a lead early, and held on with a 64 to be low team in the Belleria Pizza Spring 2-player at Links at Firestone Farms.
Forty teams from the Valley, Cleveland, Akron and Pittsburgh competed. The event kicked off the 14th summer of Greatest Golfer. Next weekend, Greatest continues with ‘Joe’ Dickey Junior play beginning at The Lake Club.
Rogers/Sveda edged out by a shot the formidable pair of Garrett Frank and Griffin Todd, who said a par on a par 5 was a hole they wished they had back.
The teams of Jason Dickey and Blake Prince, and Dave Morgan and John Talbot carded 66s to tie for 3rd.
In Flight B, Billy and Charles Loomis brothered up for a 71 to win their flight by a shot over three teams: Randy and Bill Braham (more brothers), and Brandon Schmitt and Matthew May, and the father-son duo of Jay and Sky Pappas.
Flight C saw a tie at 72 between the Chad Bailey / Tim Snow team and the Jeff Mast / Jeff Meyers team. Mast was a unique highlight of the day (See it on Instagram) doffing the socks and shoes to go knee-deep in a pond to salvage par. It didn’t work. But it made for great video.
Splitting 3rd place with a 74 were the teams of Donald DiClaudio / Nick Shelton and Paul Keller / Aaron Meyers.
This is the 14th season of Farmers National Bank Greatest Golfer. This weekend launched a calendar of 20 events at 16 courses around Ohio and Pennsylvania — fueled by 30+ sponsors and WFMJ.
