Former Monmouth University teammates, Campanile and Hart took down another pair of former Monmouth teammates in David McGrath and Greg O’Connor in the quarterfinals, which lasted 20 holes. 

“It was kind of a reunion that was unexpected but a hell of a good time in the process,” Hart said of playing against his former college teammates in the quarterfinals. 

Campanile and Hart, both of Deal G&CC won their Round of 16 match in the morning, 1-up over Gregg Angelillo and Brandon Dalinka.

 

 

“It was a grind,” explained Hart. “The course definitely played difficult in the afternoon with the tough conditions, we were just able to find a way to get the ball in the hole at the end when it mattered.”

O’Hagan and Bell of Knickerbocker Golf Club head to the semifinals on Wednesday after taking down their opponents on Tuesday in solid fashion, 6&5 and 3&2, respectively.

“The wind made it difficult in the afternoon. Our match was very tight," O'Hagan reflected. "Then around 12 and 13 we got off to a little couple hole stretch. We were very relaxed out there and enjoyed it, didn’t take it too seriously, it was very fun.”

"We decided today that par would be a good score, we kept trying to put two balls in and around the green and on the green, and force them to make pars," said Bell. "Depending on the weather, we're going to try to do the same thing tomorrow."

Barron and Brown, of Galloway National Golf Club and Rock Spring Golf Club, respectively, won their morning Round of 16 match by 2&1 over Bobby Weise and Jeremy Wall. In the afternoon quarterfinal match, the pair took down Jack Wallace and Adam Bracy, 1-up. Barron and Brown are both former NJSGA Champions. Barron won the 2017 Mid-Amateur Championship, while Brown won the 2021 Amateur Championship as well as the 2020 Mid-Amateur Championship. 

For the second year in a row, Slonis and Gramigna earned a spot into the quarterfinals. The pair won their quarterfinal match, 4&3 over 2020 champions, Morten Gotterup and Chuck Anttonen of Rumson Country Club. The Tavistock Country Club duo won their morning match convincingly over Corey Brigham and Keith Ryan, 6&4. Gramigna won the New Jersey Mid-Amateur Championship three times (2002, 2003 and 2005)
