Democrat Tourney Field Is Complete

By Fred Stabbert III
CALLICOON — July 28, 2000 – In a hectic week of entries, six past champions of the Sullivan County Democrat Two-Man, Better Ball Golf Tourney at the Villa Roma have signed up to play in this, the 19th annual tourney.
“It seems the competitive spirit is building and the teams just keep coming in,” Fred Stabbert, tourney sponsor, said. “Villa Roma Golf Pro Matt Kleiner has done a wonderful job of recruiting and helping some players find partners. We owe him a big thank you.”
The field is now full — 56 two-man teams — for the August 11-13 tourney at the Villa Roma Country Club in Callicoon.
1998 Champion Paul Stock Jr. of Roscoe will be playing with Dan White. Stock is attending the University of Charleston in West Virginia where he is a member of the golf team.
White, who lives in Hancock and works at Tennanah Lake G.C., plays on the Methodist College golf team in North Carolina. Next Thursday, Stock will compete in the U.S. Amateur Qualifier at Otterkill Country Club.
The 1996 Democrat championship team of Dr. Peter Rymer and David Philossoph will also be competing this year — but with different partners.
Dr. Peter Rymer will join his son, Matt, in what will be a very competitive team.
And at press time, Philossoph was scheduled to play with 1989 Democrat winner Charles Johnston of Shandelee.
Also joining the field this week is the perennial team of Marvin Newberg and Sam Hillman, a duo which can explode on the scoreboard with very low numbers.
1988 winners Jack Jordan and David Solomon have also thrown their spikes into the ring, hoping to play well enough to grab another Democrat gold.
