Tallent - Decker Successfully Defend VSGA Senior 4-Ball - Patch-DeRisio Fifth
May 22, 2015
The fact that Pat Tallent (Vienna) and Keith Decker (Martinsville) won the VSGA Senior Four-Ball last year was enough to make them favorites going into this year's event held May 20-21 at the Federal Club in Glen Allen. Since last year's victory, however, Decker went on to defend both his VSGA Senior Amateur and Senior Stroke Play titles and Tallent captured the biggest senior title of all - the USGA Senior Amateur, so you could have called them prohibitive favorites. They birdied nine holes in the opening round, including a stretch of 6 in 7 holes, but coupled with 3 bogies, they found themselves 2 shots behind Skip Zobel (Virginia Beach) and Dave Pulk (Williamsburg), who shot an opening round 8-under 64. Paired together in the final round, Tallent and Decker caught Zobel and Fulk on the 12th hole with their fifth birdie of the day, only to fall a shot behind when Zobel - Fulk birdied the 15th. A Tallent - Decker birdie at the 17th pulled them even again where both teams finished at 12 under 132, with Tallent - Decker shooting another 66 and Zobel - Fulk closing with 68. Tallent then made an 8 - footer for birdie on the first playoff hole to win the title for a second year in a row with Decker. Springfield GCC's Buddy Patch and Dan DeRisio shot 5 under 139 (68-71) to finish fifth, while two area teams tied for seventh at 141 - South Riding GC's Phil McQuitty and Ross Robinson (71-70), and Westwood CC's Tim Krouse and John Steele (69-72).

Piedmont Wins First A-Team Championship- Defeats Chantilly National in Finals
April 18, 2015
When Chantilly National won their semifinal match Saturday over Washington Golf, the story line for the finals was set - to which team would the phrase "the third time is the charm" best apply? The Piedmont Club had made it to the finals twice before, last year against Belle Haven and in 2007 against Loudoun, but had never won the title. Would their third shot at the championship be the charm? Chantilly National CC, on the other hand, had tied Army Navy for the most A-Team titles - seven - when they last won in 2002. They had advanced to the finals twice since then, in 2003 against International and again in 2010 against Evergreen, but could not surpass Army Navy on either occasion. Would the third try in 2015 be the charm? This year the phrase best fit Piedmont, who became the 17th different winner in the 45 years of the event with a 13.5 to 4.5 victory over Chantilly. The teams of Chad Hess - Randy Newsome and Trey Treadwell - Ryan Karnoff each won three points at home giving Piedmont a 6.5 to 2.5 advantage. At Chantilly, where the matches started approximately 60 minutes later, wins on the front nine by the teams of Scott Gilchrist - Ken Wood and Chris Martin - James Tomaseski pulled Piedmont to within one point of the victory, which Gilchrist and Wood clinched when they closed out the back nine and secured their three points.
For complete results of all the matches in the finals see the A-Team page.
