Two individual state champions, Bill Stout and Dave Rasley, combined to win the first two-man team championship of the Baltimore Municipal Golf Corporation at Mount Pleasant Golf Course yesterday. The pair put together 2-under-par rounds of 69-69138 and led a field of 63 teams by two strokes.
Stout had previously won the Maryland Stroke Play title at Mount Pleasant in July, and Rasley has won the Mid-Amateur championship of the Maryland State Golf Association at Glenn Dale GC in August.
This time, Stout birdied the first hole, Rasley the second, and they followed with 16 pars. "We mostly used fairway woods off the tees, because the key to this golf course is putting the ball in good position to hit full iron shots to the greens," Stout said. "I knew from playing here before that you don't make a lot of birdies on this course, and I felt I could make the pars."
