Quelland wins MAPGA match play

September 30, 1994|By From Staff Reports

QUEENSTOWN -- Dave Quelland, the reigning Middle Atlantic PGA section champion, added a major title to his resume yesterday when he handed Glen Barrett his second final-round loss over three years in the annual match-play championship, 6 and 5, at Queenstown Harbor Golf Links.

Aside from a four-hole stretch in the middle of the morning round, Quelland, head professional at Ocean City Yacht & Golf Club, played the other 14 in 1 under par in building a 3-up lead. Winds were blowing 35-40 mph during play, throwing both players off stride while setting up for shots, and as Quelland said at the break, "I feel like I played 36 already."

Barrett, a former Maryland Open titlist, had to be aggressive in the afternoon and was forced to make shots he might not normally attempt. The margin was 4-up after 27 holes, and Quelland, 39, in his ninth year as head pro at the Ocean City club, birdied two of the next four holes to end it.
