Berberian-Corcoran Win PGA Four-Ball Stableford Team Championship
--Port St. Lucie, FL
Rich Berberian Jr, PGA and playing partner Rob Corcoran, PGA scored 16 points in their final round to secure the Championship at the inaugural PGA Four-Ball Stableford Team Championship at PGA Golf Club on Thursday. The duo finished with 64 total points.
It seemed like it would be an easy few days for the Berberian- Corcoran team after they jumped out to an impressive nine point lead after scoring 26 points on the Dye Course in the first round. However, they weren’t without their setbacks.
The middle rounds proved to be a bit of a challenge. Berberian and Corcoran struggled to keep up with the pace of birdies they initially set. In their second round, they made seven birdies and one bogey, earning 13 points. This wasn’t a bad outcome for playing the Wanamaker Course for the first time, however their consistency had decreased. Their third round was tougher still, and they only scored nine points with five birdies and one bogey. Going into the final day, they were still atop the leaderboard but by the slim margin of one point.
