Frank Esposito Jr.,a teaching professional at Forsgate, recently won the 2018 PGA Winter Stroke-Play Championship on the Wanamaker Course at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The win marked his second career title at the PGA Winter Championships event.
“I haven’t played this event in years because it’s later in the season and I have usually left Florida by this time,” said Esposito, a native of Old Bridge who played golf at Rutgers University. “Playing the back tees makes it a different golf course than playing from the senior tees, but it was a nice way to end the Winter Championships.”
“The entire club congratulates Frank on his outstanding play at the PGA Winter Championships, and holding off a formidable field of talent to capture the Stroke Play title,” said Chris Schiavone, managing partner of Forsgate. “He’s a great champion, a talented teacher, and we are fortunate to have Frank on staff here. This win comes on the heels of his victory in the Senior PGA Professional Championship just a few months ago.”
Considered by many to be the best senior golfer based in New Jersey, Esposito has played two years on the PGA TOUR Champions Tour, competed in the U.S. Open and in two PGA Championships. He also is a five-time NJPGA Player of the Year, a two-time N.J. Open Champion and won two NJPGA/NJSGA Senior Open championships.
Two weeks ago, Esposito and Len Siter of Mountain Ridge combined for second place in the PGA Winter Four-Ball Stableford Championship at the same club.
