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.

Jasyn Consiglio and Josh Dankovich had some kind of start at the 47th annual Italian-American Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday.

But so too did Nick Munella and Jake Dwaileebe.

It was that kind of day at Holiday Valley Resort.

Consiglio and Dankovich fired a net best-ball 13-under 57 in the opening round, but Munella and Dwaileebe were only one shot behind after fashioning a nifty 58. Other top rounds in the First Flight were turned in by the teams of Tommy Tantillo-Nick Bell and Henry Mole-Tom Ames when they each shot an 8-under 62.

There is a three-way deadlock for the lead in the Second Flight as the teams of Tony Vitello-John Deppas, Fred Pellerito-Dan Cheney and Ray Paladino-Dan Wells finished with 65s. Anthony Tuccio and Dan Hocking pace the Third Flight after shooting a 67; and eight teams — Ang Volpe-Jim Brown, Jim Todaro-Tom Yocum, Sam Restivo-Billy Miley, Adam Mason-Pat MacIntyre, Sandy Volpe-Jamie Barton, John Calimeri-Andrew Casselman, Tom D’Angelo-Steve Johnson and Joe Ribaudo-Scott Crist — are tied for first in the Fourth Flight with a 69.

In the Fifth Flight, the teams of Gregg Pietrocarlo-Hans Auer, Dennis Palermo-Bernie Auer, Sam LaMancuso-Matt Hartweg, Mark Panebianco-Sean Larson and Sam Mason-Craig Glatz are tied after shooting a 70.

The Sixth Flight was more of the same as seven teams are deadlocked at 72. They are Pete Pillittieri-Andy Sandstrom, Carl Pillittieri-Dave Bogdan, John Lisciandro-Rick Joslyn, Joe Sinatra-Mike Sard, Sam Triscari-Greg Noon, Chris Cusimano-Josh Nelson and Ray Fashano-Marty Stockwell.

Mike Panebianco and Nick Shelley pace the Seventh Flight with a 73.

The second round is today followed by the final round on Saturday. The overall champion and runners-up can come from any flight.
