Tommy Wine of Brandermill did some scrambling on and off the golf course before winning the $950 first prize in the Middle Atlantic PGA Shannon Green pro-am tournament today.
Wine added 74 to his opening 71 and finished at one-over-par 145 to edge Langston's Al Green by one stroke.
Wine made pars with "up-and-down" hips on his 16th and 17th holes (the seventh and eighth holes of the course because he played the front nine last).
Needing only bogey on the par-3 final hole, the pudgy, bespectacled olfer pushed his tee shot far to the sight of the green, but he chipped a wedge shot 20 feet below the cup and two-putted for the bogey and victory.
"i'm 28 going on 48 after those holes," said a relieved Wine.
First-round leader Bob Bilbo skied to 83 after an opening 70 and finished well back at 153. The Montgomery Village assistant's troubles began at the par-4 second hole, where he pushed his drive into the woods and took bogey.
Amateur Steve Fellinger of Montgomery Village shot the day's low round, 71, and finished with a two-day total matching Wine's. Green, playing in front of Wine, was the only challenger in the pro division.
Green first played the back nine in one-under-par 35. He missed a five foot birdie putt on his 14th hole but got a par. He hooked his tee shot into the woods on the following hole and took bogey 6. Green made double bogey on the same hole Monday.
