Congratulations to the 2022 Partners Tournament Champions:
Italo Minutello & Ron Ceglia, Jr.
Gentlemen of the DGA,
Congratulations to the Partners Team of Min & Ron Ceglia, Jr. on winning the DGA's 2022 Partners Championship.
Minnie and Ron Jr. defeated Jim Rinaldi and Mike Jeffries by the convincing score of +7 on Saturday 11/5 at Quail Brook G.C. The match was fairly even during the front-9, and Min/Ron were up by only +2 at the turn. Min then had two clutch pars on the back-9, a par-3 on #11, and a par-5 on #14, to help maintain their lead. After a "push" on #15, Ron Jr. made a pressurized par-4 on #16 which sealed the victory and the championship. The match was described as "not very pretty", but as Min said "a win is a win"... any way you can get it.
This is Min's 2nd Partners Championship, the first was 25 years ago when he partnered with LT to win the inaugural P-Tourney back in 1997. He becomes the 10th DGA'er with multiple Partner titles. Ron Jr. achieves his first P-Championship, and the first for the Ceglia family household in its fifth try (Ron Sr. had made four previous attempts). The Min/Ron team skated through the entire tourney with a perfect unblemished record, winning all five P-matches they played.
Congratulations to the other teams that finished in the money - Bob Babetski & Bob Nowark and Billy Bylina & Andrew Keller.
Thanks to all Partner Teams who entered this year's tournament. And thanks to Andrew Keller who assisted as our Partners Deputy Commissioner. We look forward to next year's tourney, every P-team with a clean slate.
Frankie T., DGA
