HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. On a day when the temperatures soared, the scoring went low at the 88th NJSGA Father & Son Championship at Royce Brook Golf Club (West). The Woodlake Country Club team of Greg and Jonathan Galinskie combined for five birdies and an eagle en route to a four-under par 68 to capture their first Father & Son Championship.

“I’ve wanted to win this championship for a long time,” Greg Galinskie said after the completion of their round. “The club championships are nice, but it’s real special to win this event, a team event with your son,” he added. Their round, which included a three-under par back nine, was good for a one stroke victory over the team of Bill and Billy Linney from Copper Hill and High Bridge Hills.

Two teams from Montclair Golf Club finished in the top five: Kerry and Matt Mucci finished third with 70 and Jerry and Vince Martino finished in a tie for fourth with 71. Anthony and Anthony Fauci from Forsgate was the other fourth place team.

In the net division, Michael and Michael Albanese from The Knoll and Pinch Brook took low net honors with 63.

The Father & Son format is selected drive followed by alternate shot. Teams are not required to compete from the same club or course. The West Course at Royce Brook, a Steve Smyers design with a links feel and very distinctive bunkering, is ranked by Golf Digest as a Top 20 course in the state of New Jersey.
