GRASONVILLE -- Mike Davis, one of five Woodmont Country Club pros in the field, birdied the first two holes of a playoff, each from three feet, and, with partner Ron Bubes, won the 39th annual Pro-Am championship of the Maryland State Golf Association at Prospect Bay CC yesterday.
It began as a playoff among four teams (from 84 that started) tied at 6-under-par 66. Woodmont head pro Lyle Williams and Steve Block went out at the first hole with a par. At the second, after Woodmore's Steve Cramer-George Mavrikes and Chartwell's Dave Long-David Orso settled for par-4s, Davis rolled in the winning putt. It followed a 170-yard second shot from the right rough after his drive at the 321-yard hole caromed off a tree on the left and wound up in the right rough, 50 yards off the tee.
In reaching 66, Long birdied the 14th and 15th holes for 7-under. Then he and Orso, 18, the event's youngest player, bogeyed the 16th.
Cramer-Mavrikes made it when Cramer birdied the last hole from eight feet; Davis-Bubes, the latter of whom contributed a 50-foot birdie putt at the 13th, got in when Davis holed putts of 30 and six feet at 16 and 17, and a Williams birdie at the 15th completed the group.
Mike Davis-Ron Bubes, Woodmont CC, 34-3266; Dave Long-David Orso, Chartwell CC, 33-3366; Steve Cramer-George Mavrikes, CC Woodmore, 34-3266; Lyle Williams-Steve Block, Woodmont CC, 34-3266; Jim Seeley-Marty West III, TPC-Avenel, 33-3467; Chris Tittel-Scott Pugatch, Suburban Club, 35-3267; Ricky Touma-Shane Patterson, Norbeck CC, 32-3567; Bob Rementer-Chris Sloan, Caroline CC, 35-3267.
