DeForests win Villa Roma Pro-Scratch

Story by Ken Cohen
CALLICOON – Rondout Country Club head professional John DeForest and his son Ethan shot an impressive 11-under par in cold, wet conditions to win the Villa Roma Pro-Scratch on Monday.
The annual tournament pairs a pro and an amateur playing 18 holes of best ball and nine holes scramble. The DeForest tandem shot the low best ball round of 64 and followed with a 31 in the scramble, good enough for a two-stroke victory over Nick DePalma and Coby Lewis, who shot 65-32.
Third place went to Andrew DeForest and Ben DeForest, also sons of John, who rallied with a 6-under 29 in the scramble to go with their best ball score of 69. Defending champions Jared Kubenik of Jeffersonville and Sean Semenetz, formerly of Jeffersonville and now living in Philadelphia finished out of the money with a two-under total of 104.
The top six overall finishers were paid as well as the top two scramble teams.
The victory was worth $1,000 for John DeForest and a $250 gift certificate in the Villa Roma pro shop for Ethan. DePalma pocketed $700 for finishing second while his amateur partner Lewis received a $175 gift certificate.
