Both players carded respective 1-under-par 70s. In a match of cards, Scarpetta bested Williams on Wyoming Valley’s back nine. He finished that stretch at even-par, Williams at 1 over. GAP uses the USGA-recommended scorecard tiebreaking method, which starts with last nine holes.

Elkview Country Club’s Kenn Bolcavage and the host club’s own Joseph Weiscarger birdied their final holes to win their respective divisions. Bolcavage’s mark meant a 1-under-par 70, good enough for a one-stroke victory in the event’s Senior Division (par 71, 5,865 yards). Weiscarger, playing in the penultimate group, birdied No. 18 (par 4, 318 yards) to take the Super-Senior Division (par 71, 5,283 yards) by a stroke over Elmhurst Country Club’s Tom White.

Stone Hedge Golf Club’s Bill Krenitsky aced the par 3, 190-yard 15th hole.
