Heather Stewart, Putnam Science Academy’s director of Marketing and Recruiting, had been worrying for weeks. Her mind went everywhere as she prepared so many of the logistics of the school’s first Mustang Golf Classic. And much was focused on all the things that could go wrong.
“It’s not that we weren’t prepared,” Stewart said. “It’s just that this was our first one. But for our first time doing this, it was amazing. Even if it wasn’t our first time, amazing.”
The event, a fund-raiser for the Mustangs Club to help allay some of the expenses of the school’s athletic programs, was held Aug. 24 included lunch and dinner, and a sports memorabilia auction.
“We did have to pay a little extra for the weather,” Stewart said, “but it was totally worth it.”
In all, 92 golfers teed up in the contest, which was played in a scramble format. The winning foursome of Peter Gerardi, Bob Gerardi, Daniel Barrett and Tyler Scheiblich shot an 18-under 53. The team of Bob Darigan, John Darigan, Jeter Darigan and Cy Romans finished in second place after going 15-under, while Nathan Brodeur, Andrew Zamagni, Chris Pulcini and Ty Gaudreau combined to finish seven shots off the pace and take home third-place honors based on a back-9 tiebreaker.
The day also included competitions such as longest drive, won by Anne Kelly (women) and Tyler Scheiblich (men), and closest-to-the-pin, with Jess Musto (women) and John Herlihy (men) claiming victory.
“It was a huge success,” said Mustangs Athletic Director Tom Espinosa. “Great day. We’re looking forward to doing it again next year.”
The second annual Mustang Golf Classic will be held Aug. 15, 2020, again at CT National.
