During round two, the two teams would go back-and-forth with the lead early in the round. Cox and Prokay secured a one shot lead as the group made the turn to the back nine. The duo did not relinquish the lead, as they made birdie on four more holes on the back nine to take home the win. Cox and Prokay posted a two day total of 13-under 131 while Tesori and McClave would finish second at 9-under 135.
David Abbott and Scott Snyder posted five birdies on the back nine of Monday’s round to find themselves holding a share of the lead through 18 holes.
The team of Mike Fuentes and Tom Whittelsey played steady golf throughout the day to sit atop the leaderboard with Abbott and Snyder after both teams shot rounds of five under-par 67.
The leaderboard would get even tighter in the early stages of the final round. Rich Buckner and Ralph Giansanti birdied four of their first six holes in order to climb into a share of the lead with overnight leaders Abbott and Snyder. The team of Jerry Nick and Charles Siebrecht made their way to the top for a three-way tie.
As groups moved to the back nine, a new team came to take the lead. The team of Doug Snoap and Lloyd Fisher made six birdies on the side to take a commanding lead in the Senior Division. Snoap and Fisher earned the win at 9-under 135. Buckner and Giansanti took second place at 7-under 137.
