Congratulations to the 2021 Partners Tournament Champions:
Rich Fitzgerald & Frank Thiry, DGA
Gentlemen of the DGA,
Congratulations to the Partners Team of Rich Fitzgerald & Frank Thiry on winning the DGA's 25th Partners Championship. They defeated the talented P-team of Rick Newport & George Canfield (each with an impressive 8-handicap) by the final score of +8 at Quail Brook on November 13th.
The Fitz & Frankie P-team got off to quick +5 start after hole #4, and increased it to +9 after the 8th hole. But Rick & George battled back to cut it to +6 after the 12th hole, where it remained going to the par-3 15th hole. That's where Fitz canned a long putt of around 40 feet for a par, which clinched the victory. Needless to say, Fitz & Frankie were aided by at least 2 handicap strokes on every hole from Rick and George which presented the low handicappers with a tough match challenge to overcome.
However, the winners still needed to "ham-and-egg-it" to win, which they did: Frankie winning 5 holes, Fitz winning 5 holes, and the other 5 both tied for those 15 holes.
Congratulations to the other teams that finished in the money - Bob Babetski / Bob Nowark and Bruce Rapp / Dennis Grote.
Also, "Thanks" are extended to all participants in this year's DGA Partners Tournament. We all look forward to the next 25 years of DGA Partners competition starting next year 2022.
Frankie T., DGA
