The foursome of Todd Lenseigne, Paul Stonemetz, Louis Alcala and Dave Stokes bested a 32-team field at this past Sunday's 2007 Great Pumpkin Shootout, staged at Sunnyside's Black Rock Creek Golf Course.
The tourney format called for each team to post two scores on every hole. An orange ball was rotated between the team members, and the player designated to play the orange ball had to use his or her score on that particular hole. The three other team members added their "scramble" score on each hole to the team total.
Lenseigne, Stonemetz, Alcala and Stokes claimed a two-shot victory over their closest competitors, firing a 9-under-par 135.
In at 7-under-par 137 was the foursome of Miles Plata, Miguel Puente, Jon Bright and Keno Arambul.
The third lowest scoring team, at 6-under-par 138, was comprised of Eli Gonzalez, Tony Hidalgo, Jose Contreras and Randy Duford.
Tying for the fourth lowest score, at 5-under-par 139, were the squads of Trini Madrigal, Juan Guerrero, Balbino Benitez and Gary Hutchins; and Rob Clemenson, Todd Thomas, Steve DiBenidetto and Mike Ebe.
Also shooting below par, with a 1-under 143, was the team of Jeremy Drollinger, Dave Foster, Andy Bonzi and Terry Drollinger.
The net champions of this year's tournament (actual score minus handicap) were Plata, Puente, Bright and Arambul. The foursome shot a handicap-aided 129.8. Second place finishers in the net column, with a 130.1, were Clemenson, Thomas, DiBenidetto and Ebe.
