Bridgehampton, N.Y. The 96th Lincoln Met PGA Championship was held at The Bridge from September 20-22. The tournament featured 106 of the finest professional and amateur golfers in New York State. At the conclusion of the three-round tournament, Alex Beach of Westchester Country Club hoisted the Joseph J. Lannin trophy with a final score of 4-under par 212.


On the opening day of competition, Paul Selvaggio of Westchester Country Club and Dylan Newman of Brae Burn Country Club shared the lead with scores of 5-under par 67. Selvaggio compiled five birdies, and most notably, an eagle on the eighth hole while Newman put together six birdies, including a trio of birdies on the final three holes, to conclude the round.


After the second round of play, the duo of Jared Marschall of Winged Foot Golf Club and Cian Curley of Noyac Golf Club emerged to split the top spot with two-day totals of 5-under par 139. Marschall collected six birdies including back-to-back birdies on the last two holes to secure a second-round score of 2-under par 70. Following a double bogey and a bogey on the first two holes, Curley displayed resilience and sank seven birdies, including four on the back nine, to earn a 3-under par 69. Marschall and Curley were accompanied by 60 others who made the cut to compete in the final round.


On the final day, golfers had to battle through a pair of rain delays to complete the Met PGA Championship. Beach narrowly escaped with the victory as Andy Svoboda of Engineers Country Club finished just one stroke behind. Beach’s victory can be attributed to his stellar performance on the back nine that was kickstarted by an eagle on the par-5 10th before making back-to-back birdies on holes 16 and 17 to clinch the title.


Beach’s victory came on the heels of representing the United States in the 30th PGA Cup where he earned his team a full point by securing a 1-up win over David Higgins en route to the 15.5-10.5 victory.
