Dulin-MacLeod Team Wins Member-Member
In golf, as in life, stuff happens. In the Spring Member-Member Tournament, contested by 17 two-man teams over the weekend of June 13 and 14, uniformly good things happened to the partnership of Dick Dulin and Scott MacLeod, which ham-and-egged its way to victory on the strength of a 36-hole total of 121, or 19 under par. The winners followed up a solid opening round of 63 with a scorching 58 on Sunday, earning $125 per player for the first-place finish.
Not-so-good things happened to the runners-up, Terry Breitenstein and Enrico Palazio, at the conclusion of Sunday's climactic round. Putting from about 8 feet for a net par on the 18th hole, Terry narrowly missed. In the mistaken belief that Enrico was about to putt for a net birdie or eagle from close range, Terry picked up his ball instead of tapping in for a net bogey, thus leaving the outcome entirely in Enrico's hands. It turned out that Enrico was already lying 3 and putting for a net bogey. Bad stuff—of a kind that everyone has experienced at one time or another— ensued, as Enrico three-jacked it for a net double-bogey. Upon turning in their scorecard, the teammates learned that their total of 122 left them in second place, a single stroke behind Dulin and MacLeod. In other words, Terry's tap-in (or Enrico's first putt, had it dropped), would have won the tournament for them. Instead, they collected the consolation prize of $100 apiece.
Third place, worth $75 per player, went to Aaron Rezny and Kinny Post, who finished at 127, a stroke ahead of Kieran Bell and Dennis Collins, who collected the fourth-place spoils of $50 a man. The teams of Ron Valle and John Putman and George Pattison and Mike Wholey each shot 132 and shared fifth place, collecting $75 per player. Tied for seventh, at 134, and receiving $55 per golfer, were the partnerships of Mike Shaughnessy and Bill Harder and Ray Guerin and Jim Whelan.

On the net side, Hicinbothem appeared to have first place all to himself after finishing with a net 67 (gross 75).

Lane makes history
One of the epic finals went 41 holes before Justin Lane prevailed over defending club champion Chris Grady. Lane, at age 15, put himself in the history book as the youngest champ ever. It is believed to be the longest final. Three weeks later, Lane made history again by winning the Wiltwyck club championship.
Kieran Bell captured the A Flight final, 7-and-6 over Nick Martin. Sal Misasi Sr. defending his Gold Tee title by downing Jerry Washington, 3-and-2.
Grady Notches No. 7
Experience prevailed over youth, as 55-year-old defending club champion Chris Grady downed budding junior star Justin Lane, 5-and-4. It was the seventh title for Grady, tying him with Alex Sharpe for second on the all-time list behind Bill Van Aken (10 titles).
After taking a 4-up lead through 21 holes, Grady was tested by Lane. The advantage shrank to 1-up with Lane, 14, winning three consecutive holes.
Grady answered the challenge by sinking a 20-foot birdie putt on No. 25 for a 2-up edge. He took control at 4-up by winning Nos. 27 and 28.
Champions were crowned in three other flights. Bill Zeeh won the A Flight, 2-up, over Chester Robbins; Ken Meisler claimed B Flight honors over Nigel Hodge; and Sal Misasi Sr. repeated as Gold Tee Flight champ, 7-and-6, over Jerry Washington.
Grady's 12-year-old son, Ori Jordaan-Grady, captured the Junior Club Championship earlier in the month with a triumph over Ryne Perry.
Grady Defeats Jenifer
For Sixth WGC Crown
Resuming his dominance after a year off, Chris Grady on August 24 claimed his sixth Woodstock Golf Club men’s championship, defeating the defending titleholder, Jesse Jenifer, 3 and 2 in the 36-hole final of the match-play competition.
Grady, a 54-year-old history teacher at Onteora High School, won his fifth consecutive championship in 2011 when he defeated Jenifer by the same score in the final. When Grady skipped the 2012 championships, opting instead for a family vacation, Jenifer seized the moment, capturing the title by way of a final-round victory over Glenn Miller.
But Grady returned to the fray in top form this year, birdieing three holes (nos. 29, 31, and 32) on the final nine-hole stretch, leaving him four holes up with four to play. Jenifer fought back promptly, sinking a clutch birdie putt on no. 33 to stay alive. The defending champion’s rally, and the closely contested match itself, ended on the following hole, however, as both players made par and Grady secured his latest crown.
With six titles, Grady stands tied in fourth place on the all-time list of WGC championship winners, trailing only William Van Aken, the leader with 10; Alex Sharpe III, with seven; and tied with Boyer Gonzales and Pat Noonan, with six apiece.
In other final-round action, Chris Helsmoortel won the A Flight championship, edging Steve Swanson by a score of 2 and 1, while Sal Misasi defeated Ken Meisler 4 and 3 to claim the Gold Tees title. Asa Spurlock, with the low 18-hole score of 81, won the junior club championship.

Grady Prevails Again In Club Championship
To the surprise of few, Chris Grady captured his third straight WGC men's club championship and fourth over all, defeatingTerry Breitenstein in a rain-soaked final that was contested on August 22.
The showdown, scheduled for 36 holes, ended after 18 when Breitenstein, down by 10 holes, conceded the match rather than continue in the inclement conditions. While the result solidified Grady's status as the club's preeminent golfer—the four-time titlist sports a plus-0.1 handicap, a possibly unprecedented feat at WGC—Breitenstein's march to the final provided the Cinderella story of the tournament, which began on August 14.
Terry was seeded 15th out of 16 players in the initial draw of the tournament's championship flight, which was whittled to the eight golfers who won their opening match. That group included Breitenstein, who upset second-seeded Steve Swanson in the first round and Bud Dagirmanjian, a former championship finalist, in the second. Terry secured his berth in the final with a third-round victory over John Frahm on August 21, while Chris, playing in the same foursome, defeated Ron Valle.
Predictably, however, Grady proved indomitable in the soggy final, recording five birdies en route to a two-under-par 68 for the first 18 holes. The champion noted after the round that he often plays golf in the rain and enjoys the experience. In addition to having his name etched for a fourth time on the championship trophy, Chris earned $100 for his victory, while terry received $50 as the runner-up.
Elsewhere in club championship action, Steve Swanson a clutch putt on no. 18 to defeat Kieran Bell 1-up for the A flight title. Greg Corio prevailed in the B flight, vanquishing Ray Guerin 6 and 4. Dave Palmer was a 2-up winner over Richard Weinberg in the C flight, while the D flight crown went to Dan Riso, who was a 5-and-3 winner over Bill Harder. The E flight titlist was Peter Fein, who defeated Bernie Mogelever 10 and 8.
In the unbeaten flights (championship, B, and D), the winners received $100 and the runners-up $50. In the beaten flights (A, C, E) the winners earned $50 while the runners-up collected $25.
Sunday August 30, 2009
Grady defends Woodstock Club title 7-and-6 victory over Glenn Miller in the 36-hole match.
Champions were crowned in three other flights Sunday involving 18-hole matches. Chester Robbins topped John Frahm 2-and-1 to capture First Flight honors.
In the Second Flight, George Pattison weathered Ray Guerin's comeback from 4-down at the turn to prevail 1-up on the 19th hole.
Dave Palmer secured the Third Flight crown with a 7-and-6 triumph over Bill Harder.

Senior Pro honors and $1,100 went to Tom Sutter (70, Golf Manhattan).

Senior Division winner Mark Mielke (Mill River) earned $1,200 with a round of 68. Thirteen-year-old member Justin Lane tied with Jeff Schller Jr. (Twaalfskill) for low amateur at 70.

Amateur Ethan DeForest of Rondout went on a rampage to set the tournament and course records with 10-under-par 60. The 16-year-old became the third member of his family to win the Woodstock Open. His father, John, was 1991 winner, while brother Chris prevailed at age 15 in 2004. John DeForest, Fran Quinn and John Stoltz held the previous record of 63.
