Pinciottis go low for Parent/Child – Middle title
The Pinciottis prevailed Thursday at Maple Dale Country Club (par 72, 6,269 yards).
The father-son duo out of Huntingdon Valley Country Club fired a 4-under 68 to take the Father-Son title in the 15th edition of the event, which featured an 18-hole greensomes format.
Dan (father) and D.J. (son) birdied Maple Den’s final three holes for the victory. In all, seven birdies found their way on the card, leading to a two-stroke win versus the field of 19 teams.
The Father-Son tournaments have been renamed to reflect today’s modern family as Parent/Child with expanded opportunities for all. Each event, the Parent/Child-Younger; Parent/Child-Middle and Parent/Child-Older, will offer four divisions: Father-Son; Mother-Son; Father-Daughter and Mother-Daughter.
In the Father-Daughter Division, Taylor and Jeff Hollander of Kennett Square Golf & Country Club won the top honor with a 15-over 87.
