Larry Storck and Moose Brown teamed for a 2-under-par 68, and their two-day total of 134 brought them the championship of the annual Five Farms Fourball tournament yesterday at Baltimore Country Club.

As was the case in Saturday's opening round, only three of the 22 teams finished with sub-par totals for the 6,844-yard, par-70 East Course. Mitch Wyatt-Ron Vannelli had 68-68-136 and were tied by first-round leaders Scott Hargest-Tim Dilli (65-71-136).

Storck-Brown, from Hayfields CC, turned in 1-under 34, and Brown effectively sealed the verdict at the 440-yard 16th, where his 155-yard 7-iron shot to 18 inches set up an easy birdie. This opened a two-stroke margin after Wyatt, from Salisbury and Green Hill Y&CC, had posted his third birdie of the day - a 15-foot putt at the 14th - to get his team within one.

The leaders maintained the pressure for a second straight day by keeping both balls in play (Storck hit 16 greens; Brown, 15) for most of the round. Their closest pursuers took turns. After Wyatt's play at the 14th, partner Vannelli, from Edison, N.J., closed with three of their four successive pars. Baltimore CC members Hargest-Dilli bogeyed the ninth and 10th to drop two shots off the pace and were still there at the end after Dilli matched Brown's late birdie with one at the 17th.

The Baltimore CC team of Guy Phelan-Ray Daue joined Storck-Brown and Wyatt-Vannelli in sharing the day's low round of 68.
