11th Tournament of Champions Bull’s Bridge Golf Club - Tuesday, September 7th Tettelbach Division 1st: Jason Jaworoski, Shorehaven GC 2nd: Josh Cameron, Norwich GC 3rd: Mike Thompson, Glastonbury Hills GC Scott Johnson, Green Woods CC Kevin Schweighoffer, Manchester CC 68 70 71 71 71 Siderowf Division 1st: Michael Moraghan, CC of Waterbury 2nd: Robert Diskin, Bull’s Bridge GC Jim Romaniello, Shorehaven GC 72 (Even) 73 (+1) 73 (+1) Jason Jaworoski title. In the Siderowf division, Moraghan’s round of even-par 72 helped him to a one stroke victory and his first CSGA championship. Standing on the 16th tee at two over-par for the day, he felt like he needed something special to have a chance at the title. “I made a really sloppy bogey on the opening hole, but I managed to hold it together throughout the day,” said Moraghan. “Going into the day, I felt like I needed to be under-par to have a chance. After being two over-par through fifteen holes, I had it in my head to try to birdie the last three holes.” While a tall task to birdie the difficult 16th and 17th holes, he saved his best shots for the reachable (-4) (-2) (-1) (-1) (-1) Michael Moraghan par-5 finishing hole. A 300-yard drive left him with just an 8-iron into the green, which he hit to within fifteen feet and calmly rolled in the putt for an eagle and an even-par round. “No question it was lot of fun to finish with an eagle, a good ending to a good day all around,” said Moraghan. “I had a great pairing with Tom Brett and Manny DeSilva, and Bull’s Bridge is such a beautiful place and just a great golf course. I always love coming up here.” Robert Diskin of Bull’s Bridge Golf Club and Jim Romaniello of Shorehaven Golf Club both shot rounds of one over-par 73 to finish runner-up in the Siderowf Division.
