Private Clubs up by 3 points in Cup

September 23, 2001|By SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Paul Steinhardt was part of two winning sides in staying unbeaten as the Private Clubs built a 10 1/2 -7 1/2 lead after two days of the seventh annual Challenge Cup competition against a Public Course team yesterday.

In foursomes and four-ball, the Private Clubs won the last two afternoon pairings to gain a 6 1/2 -5 1/2 edge for the day at Mount Pleasant Golf Course.

Steinhardt, from Hayfields Country Club, playing with three different partners, was the only one of the two dozen players to win three times in as many tries.

Henry Blue had the shot of the afternoon, a 133-yard second shot that hit the green and rolled into the cup for an eagle at the par-4 12th. When he followed with a birdie at the 13th, he and Steinhardt had a lead over Drew Forrester and Jim Pappas they would not relinquish.

Play will conclude this afternoon with 12 singles matches at the Suburban Club.
