Lamberti Wins Bambino Invitational

Leewood Golf Club

Leewood Golf Club in Eastchester, NY, held up under the onslaught of some of the Metropolitan area's best pros during the club's Bambino Invitational yesterday.  Brian Lamberti took the championship trophy by defeating Anthony Aruta in a sudden death playoff with a birdie on the second hole.  The two pros finished regulation play with 71s, a stroke over Leewood's par of 70.

Like Merion, the site of this year's US Open, Leewood is noted more for narrow fairways and tight landing areas than length. The course played 6,420 yards for the tournament, yet the field failed to break par.

Here's the final leader board:

Champion:     Brian Lamberti   (71)
2nd:               Anthony Aruta    (71)
T3rd:             Shaun Powers    (72)
T3rd:             John Stoltz          (72)
T5th:             James Ondo        (73)
T5th:             Phil Rusnack       (73)
T7th:             Steve Scott          (74)
T7th:            Andrew Giuliani    (74)
T7th:            Andrew Duvall      (74)
T7th:            Larry Rupp            (74)
T11th:          Joe Christianson   (75)
T11th:          Kirk Oguri              (75)
T11th:          Corey Baubault     (75)
T11th:          Trevor Sahn          (75)
15th:            Will Fenn               (76)

The Bambino Invitational is named after Leewood's most famous member, Babe Ruth.
