3 father-son teams enter tournament


June 25, 1993|By GEORGE TAYLOR

Three Piney Branch teams have filed entries for the Middle Atlantic Golf Association's Father-Son Championship.

The teams are Dave and Rob Schmid, Bill and Brian Stricker and Ray and Craig Schaffer. The Schmid combination rates among the top 20 favorites.

David, the father, carries a six handicap, and his son, Rob, has a one handicap. Their combined handicap of seven is among the tournament's lowest.

The scratch event, with a better-ball format, will be staged July 12 at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda.

A record entry of 155 teams includes many of the area's top golfers. Of this number, only 82 could be accommodated for tee times, starting at 7:30 a.m. The Schmids will be paired with Grif and Brian Holland of Columbia Country Club.

Rob, 22, has an impressive golfing start. He is a former Maryland State Junior Champion, twice qualified for the Maryland State Amateur, once advancing to the bracket of 16.

Also while attending George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., from which he graduated this month, he was honored as the All-Scholar Athlete.

In competition at Piney Branch, Rob reached the club championship final, bowing in extra holes to Wayne Gailey.

Western Maryland College

A celebration is scheduled for this year's Invitational Tournament on July 10 at the Western Maryland College course in Westminster.

Twenty-five teams have been invited to compete. Each team will submit to the scorer its five best scores out of a squad of six.

The defending champion is the Roaring Run Lions Club with Max Mosner, Charles Palmer, Leroy Ford, Dick Price and Bob Moser. The Lions won last year with a 376 score, ahead of Moose (393) and WMC (401).

Mosner led last year's individual scoring with a 69. He was followed by Scott McCauley with 72 and Palmer with 73.

"The 69 was the best score since I've been connected with the annual invitational," said tournament director Joe Manzer.

Manzer said the tournament will feature prizes for contestants, the awarding of the President's Cup and a 25th birthday cake decorated with golf balls.
