Morgante, Gren Shoot 13-Under In Final Round To Win Tourney By One

Anything can happen on the final day in any golf event, and that was certainly the mindset that teammates Jon Gren Jr. and Peter Morgante took into the third and final afternoon of the 48th annual Italian-American Charity Golf Tournament on the Double Black Diamond course at Holiday Valley Resort on Saturday.

The pair, which claimed its first victory at the I-A in 2015, entered the final round of the weekend in a six-shot hole, but was able to climb out of that deficit with a final-round 57 for a 190 total to take home the title. After firing a 62 on Day 1 to put themselves in good position on the leaderboard, Morgante and Gren stumbled in their middle round, shooting a 1-over-par 71 for a two-day total of 133.

The newly acquired back room at the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame on West Third Street in Jamestown serves as the organization’s board room. The large space has recently been painted, new carpeting has been installed and some furniture has been moved in, but the walls have nothing hanging on them as of yet.

As Jack Munella Sr. and Mike Giunta took a seat at a table in the middle of the expanse earlier this week, I couldn’t help but think that they would be able to provide plenty of golf memorabilia to cover those walls if the opportunity presented itself.
