Pataki, Steinhardt lead Private Clubs to match-play win

September 24, 2001|By SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Andy Pataki of Rolling Road Golf Club and Paul Steinhardt of Hayfields Country Club each went 4-0 during the three days of the seventh-annual team match between members of Private Clubs and the Public Courses, helping the Private side to a 19 1/2 -10 1/2 victory, which concluded yesterday at the Suburban Club.

The Private forces won nine of the final-day 12 singles matches, with only Tim Elliott, Tim Osgood and Larry Cronise producing wins for the Public team.

Despite the lopsided margin, most of the matches were close and hard-fought, with seven going at least to the 17th green, and three more to the 16th.

In compiling unbeaten records, Steinhardt was never behind, and Pataki was behind for only one hole, in foursomes, Saturday morning.

But he and Larry Storck quickly took care of that with five birdies in the next six holes.

Singles (Private player listed first): Jimmy Rosenfield lost to Tim Elliott, 2 and 1; Paul Steinhardt d. Ross Ellberg, 2 and 1; Larry Storck lost to Tim Osgood, 2-down; Henry Blue d. Bob Lentz, 2 and 1; Rick Sovero d. Mike Castrilli, 3 and 1; Andy Pataki d. Jim Pappas, 3 and 2; Chuck Freedman d. Charlie Narciso, 1-up; David Kaplan d. Drew Forrester, 2 and 1; Chris Swam d. Brian Carneal, 2 and 1; Mickey Abrams d. Jeff Dwyer, 6 and 4; Sheldon Kalish lost to Larry Cronise, 4 and 3; Jim Biggar d. Leon Eckard, 4 and 2. Final score: Private Clubs 19 1/2 ; Public Clubs, 10 1/2 .
