Zeiders, Dudas take Deeg Sezna Four-Ball

AVONDALE, Pa.– Duncan Zeiders of Old York Road CC and Dwight Dudas of Indian Valley CC paired up to take the Golf Association of Philadelphia’s 6th Deeg Sezna Four-Ball tournament with an 8-under-par 64 Tuesday at Hartefeld National (par 72, 6,367 yards).

 Defending champions, Conrad Von Borsig, 20, of Concord CC and Freddy Henriquez, 38, of Hartefeld National, finished one stroke back with a 7-under-par 65.

  The tournament, celebrating the mentorship of the older generation for its younger counterparts, is named in honor of Davis “Deeg” Sezna, Jr., who lost his life on Sept. 11, 2001 in the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.

  Deeg, an avid golfer long a mentor to his younger brothers Teddy and Willy, and a recent graduate of Vanderbilt University with a degree in economics, was in his sixth day of work on the 104th floor of the South Tower when the terrorists struck.

  To memorialize his name, GAP and his father, Davis Sezna, Sr., established the Deeg Sezna Four-Ball, pairing a junior player and an older amateur in a better ball competition, with a minimum age difference of 10 years and the stipulation that the younger player be 21 or younger.

  The goal is to give experienced golfers quality time with the next generation, and vice versa. The age range was 10 to 72.

  Founded in 1897, the Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP) is the oldest regional golf association in the United States and serves as the principal ruling body of amateur golf in its region. Its 135 Member Clubs and 60,000 individual members are spread across parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. The purpose of the Association is simple: To promote, protect and preserve the game of golf in the region.
