Doug Nardella & Michael Peregrim, Jr.

The duo cruised to an eight-stroke victory over a field of nine teams. Nardella and Peregrim did their damage at Pocono Farms, firing a 6-under-par 65 amid rainy conditions. An even-par 71 at Valley kept all chasers at a distance.

“It was a great round (Saturday) on a very difficult golf course and quite difficult conditions. It was foggy the whole day. We couldn’t use our rangefinders almost all day because we couldn’t pick up the locations,” Nardella, 49, of Moscow, Pa., said. “But on that golf course, you just need to have the ball kept in front of you. Mike and I managed to keep the ball in front of us, and we played bogey-free on a golf course where lost balls happened everywhere. It was awesome.”

It marked the duo’s first John Moore victory in years of attempts. Nardella and Peregrim met during a Keystone Games Qualifier some 30 years ago at Irem Country Club. A golf friendship formed that day.

StoneHedge’s Joe Diskin and Bill Pasqualichio, Jr. won the event’s First Flight. The duo carded a 4-under-par 139.
