Lehigh Valley Classic
They came from north, south, east and west to play in the Lehigh Valley Classic. Most of the top players participated, although many switched up partnerships for the day. When one of the #2 seeds was a late scratch due to illness, it wasn't hard finding a replacement - the players really enjoy coming to this event, and it is an easy commute for most. Those from Chicago, Virginia, Washington, DC and Massachusetts had longer journeys, but were all willing to make the effort to earn Region 3 Presidents Cup points and to vie for the best prize out there - a stay at tournament director Chip Morrow's Dominican Republic villa. Drew Broderick and Steve DeRose continued their winning ways (3 tournaments - 3 titles). They ousted Jeff Morneau & Johan duRandt in an exciting semifinal and then, in an all-American final, topped Mike Marino & Dane Schmidgall. Backdraw results: Bostrom & Bredberg finished 5th; Levanat & Rhazali won the Conso; Kahler & Grangeiro won the 16 Reprieve and Furman - McGrath claimed Last Chance honors. View the complete draw here
