FLEETWOOD, Pa. – As the first group out Wednesday at Moselem Springs Golf Club (par 70, 6,305 yards), the the course was welcomingly wide open for the home club’s Perry Landis and LedgeRock Golf Club’s Chris Storck. It was nice and cozy on familiar grounds. After all, Moselem has been a staple in each of their golf games dating back to 2007.

The dynamic Berks County duo went on to file a 6-under 64 and won the 63rd Senior Four-Ball Stroke Play’s Senior Division in result. They bested 51 other Senior twosomes for the victory.

The Senior Four-Ball Stroke Play is a better-ball-of-partners event.

After a respectable front side of 2-under 33, it was time for the partners to pounce.

Interestingly enough, it was Moselem’s first nine that was playing easier (38.6 average). Its second nine played two strokes more difficult (40.7), but that didn’t phase Landis or Storck. They welcomed the challenge.

Back-to-back birdies by Landis got things headed deep into the red after the turn. On No. 10 (par 4, 386 yards), Landis dropped in a 20 foot trickler in for birdie, followed by a 15 footer on No. 11 (par 4, 427 yards). Storck stepped up next on No. 12 (par 5, 491 yards) after barely missing on an eight-foot eagle look, but tapped in for birdie 4. He’d jar another on the par-4, 345-yard 16th after watching playing partner Pat Dougherty’s holed putt from 10 feet, taking a similar successful line. They’d go on to par Moselem’s finishing two holes for the 6-under card.

“We played well out there today and it honestly could have been better. We were getting good looks most of the day,” said Storck, 55, of Sinking Spring, Pa. “

“Chris and I, we know the golf course pretty well I’d say. We know the way these greens grow [during the summer heat], so we were talking about the grain of the greens all day. They are a combination of poa and bentgrass, so the greens grow in really strong and hold uphill putts really well,” said Landis, 57, of Kutztown, Pa. “We were able to take advantage [of that local knowledge] today.”

The champions’ relationship goes back to the year 2007, when both players became members at Moselem. They began playing in Berks County partner events together, and the rest was history. Trophies and friendship followed suit.

“Chris and I, we’ve kind of split up a little bit over the years, but then sometimes we get back together in events like this,” said Landis. “But this year, I called Chris about [today’s event], and he was like, ‘Yep. This is it.'”

“We’ve always kept in touch. We’ve always battled against each other. So to partner up again, it was nice to be on each other’s side,” said Storck, who won the 2021 Berks Country Amateur Championship — his third overall.

Expect more phone calls between the two in the near future — especially when a better-ball event comes calling.

McCool, Scott repeat for Super-Senior crown

Repeat time in remarkable fashion.

Robin McCool of Saucon Valley Country Club and Craig Scott of Great Bear Golf Club combined to fire a 3-under 67 to win the Super-Senior title. They bettered a field of 29 teams for the trophy by a stroke.

The good friends and two-time champions won today’s trophy in dramatic fashion, making birdie on Moselem’s hardest two holes to finish. On No. 17 (par 4, 343 yards), McCool placed his approach to two feet and tapped in for the birdie, followed by a 20-foot exclamation-point birdie by Scott on Moselem’s 18th. All in all, it equaled a one-shot victory.

“The pins were in tricky spots, which was fine for us, but you really had to have some local knowledge out there. We were hitting greens in regulation all day and giving ourselves looks,” said Scott, 73, of Marshalls Creek, Pa.

“We hadn’t looked at the scoreboard much at all until we got to the 17th tee. We knew what we had to do and make some birdies with two to play,” said McCool, 71, of Center Valley, Pa. “Craig and I are really good friends. We love each other, and love playing together because our games are so similar. It really works well for this format.”

The duos record speaks for itself. McCool and Scott also paired up to win last year’s Senior 27-Hole Challenge at Bellewood Country Club. Today’s title defense just strengthens the argument that McCool and Scott team up to be one of the finest partners in the GAP region.
