Team #2

John Estrella/Dennis Enright (5thseason/13th season) 
Dennis and John are a new team for 2018 both their old members will only play as guests this coming season since their work schedules changed. Both these members are a Major Machine to be contended with if they gel together in their first season together.
Majors: Dennis(7), John(2)



Team #1
Jeff Matvienko/Carlos Triana(13th Season)
Jeff and Carlos Got it done again in 2017. Their third title, they are a force to be reckoned with yearly.  When they are not out shopping for white pants together or at home watching Dancing with the Stars, Jeff and Carlos can usually be found beating nearly every opponent that comes their way.  They are the only team to ever finish a season undefeated in doubles at 13-0 in 2009 and extended their unbeaten streak to 23 straight before finally losing.  It's hard to believe that their partnership came together at the last minute.  Like Bert and Ernie, they seem like they've been friends for life.  Majors: Jeff(7) Carlos(8)


Team #10






Dave Fetherman (13th Season)
        
Majors: Dave(0),

Team #13
Tom Murphy/Mike Pettigrew (20+ Seasons)
One of the two longest tenured teams, Tom and Mike are also two of the most popular members and are certainly the fastest team out there.  Both are streaky who have each rattled off back-to-back tournament wins in their careers.  Tom will sometimes go sans woods and win tournaments and other times, when he's behind a slow group, he will hit driver on every shot including from in the bunkers and on the greens.  Mike is the self proclaimed Champion of the Practice Range.  Both of them have seen and heard all the things that make the league great and will be happy to share them.    
Majors: Tom (1) Mike (2)

Team  #16












Craig LaBianco/Pat Gabrielle  (4th season)
Both members joined us as independent members in 2017 from Chris Fasouletos, with an open team spot available they want it. Both golfers played over 4 events with us last season and saw what it was to compete in Doubles when they played together. Both have yet to win their first event title but it is right there for them to get it.
Majors-: NONE


Team #3

Mike Miniaci/John Pascali(5th season)
Mike was an independent in 2016, and John was a full team, they decided to team up for 2017. Both players had some success in 2016, and were both named to the Ryder Cup team that came up 1 stroke short of claiming the victory. 
Majors: Mike 1, John 1
                   

Team #8
T
Andy Leishman/Taka Kitsuta (20th Season)
Taka might describe this team as  Happy-Go-Rucky.  The fact is that they are very competitve and easy going but that has never contributed to any team or individual success.  They'll play in any weather,even after a long drive up from Myrtle Beach, and make nearly every event.  Taka's brush with fame came when he made the final group for day two of the 2002 Club Championship only to shoot 77 on the front nine. He is often mistaken for a 27 year old by strangers.  Andy, when he's not posing for print ads as the second man on the evolutionary chart, can be heard spouting off heinously corny one liners. Majors: None

Team #4

John Catino/Brian Saporito (7th season)
A pair of golfers from the CJGC, Brian is related to Powell in some way. I do know that they are NOT from PLAINFIELD. John won 2 events in his rookie year and Brain finished in a tie for event wins but lost on tiebreakers. They finished their inaugural season in 3rd place not bad for a couple of rookies.
Majors - John 3, Brian 1


Team #14

Nunzio DePaola / Bill Murray(19th / 2nd)
Nunzio and new member Bil Murray, came to  join Nunzio the 2019 season, Bikk a fellow golfer from Nunzios town of Livingston, so now we shouldn't have a problem with Nunzio heading to the wrong course for his tee time.  Good luck guys.
Majors- Nunzio (3), Bill-0



Team #7

Hank Zygmunt/Scott Milne (7th Season /17th season )
Scott and Hank decided to pair up after the banquet since their old partners are changing their status, Scott's partner from last year is moving, and Hank's is going to be playing less events. Both these guys know what it takes to get some wins.
Majors: Scott 2, Hank(0)


Team #9

Tom Cannon/Chris Fasouletos (9th season)
Chris attempted to play as a guest with us in 2014(via web), he jumped at the chance to join the club he was the first to respond to the email I sent out to golfers that showed interest in becoming members last season. He is brought his friend Tom to join him for their rookie year and have been with us since 2014.    Majors: None



Team #11

Brady Lau/Charlie Padilla (6th season, 9th season)
After his winning the singles title in 2016 Brady got Charlie Padilla (the Colombian) to return and they will be partners as the original plan when Brady entered the club in 2015. They both work together and will be a tough out. So be on alert. Charlie has 1 tourney win but no majors
Majors:  Brady-1, Charlie-none

 
Team #5

Ludek Koryta/Joe Kepic  3rd season
Joe found us on thru the website and brought in his father-in-law to become a team for the 2018 season, both golfers have been assigned a new handicap thru the ghin system. They played approximately 25 rounds of golf this past season at different courses so they will not feel a shock like the members that were used to playing the same course week after week. Good luck this season 
Majors - None




Team #6

Ed Groske/Gary Semon (5th season)
Ed's and Gary's partners from 2016 are both unable to play in 2017 (Baron, Gropler) so they will team up in 2017. Both of which are looking forward to being a threat to the title holders in both Singles and Doubles, good luck gentlemen.

Majors:  Ed (2), Gary-0


Team #12

Dave Perry/Jim Sudnik (3rd season)

Sub Shop
 



Paul Benzenhoefer/Dave Severson (11th Season/20+Seasons)
Usually a full team this past year they decided to become independent members with fellow member Jim Gillick so they are under no pressure to make a lot the events and when they do mix it up the 3 of them can make one team if needed for competition. 
Majors: NONE



Carmen Delizio (48th season) 
Let's get one thing straight. There is no Weekenders Golf Club without Carmen DeLizio and let me be one of many who should give him his due. Here from the start in 1972, he kept the league together in good times and bad and acted as the league treasurer until this season, of what could be the best independent golf league in the country. When it comes to golf, Carmen remains one of the best and toughest competitors in the league even at his advanced age.  On top of that, he remains one of the least controversial figures refraining from trash talk.  With Carmen readying for retirement and finishing up his workload as a town electrical inspector a full season load would be too much so for this year he prefers to be listed as an Independents but I am sure you will still see him at 50% of our events.  Majors: (4)





Tom Damsell  (3rd season)
Tom found us on our website, and wanted to join us at an event in 2017 as a guest but his schedule didn't allow it. He will be joining us in 2018 as an independent member. He has a GHIN number so he will have an effective handicap when we start. Tom wanted to be a full member but only thinks he will make about 5-7 events this year and didn't want to be a burden to a partner.  Majors NONE
 



 

Jim Gillick (25th + season)
One of the elder statesman in the club, Jim usually partners with Bill Buntzen but Bill doesn't play anymore,  so when Jim plays it is as an independent and usually with Paul B. or Dave S.  most of the time the 3 of them are together.
Majors- None




Paul LaBarbera(3rd season)
Paul was a member last season, but only was able to play with his teammate in 3-4 events due to work schedule so he decided to change his status to be used as a sub when he can play,  
MAJORS - None






Coty Butler (4th season)
Coty, joined us from the website, Coty a local golfer looking to take his next step in playing. He has played a lot of golf locally (Meadows) and we get to expand his golf course conceptions.
MAJORS - NONE







Tom Welch (3rd season)
Tom joins us as from Dave Severson, as of press time he will be an independent just as Dave,Paul and Jim. He has been playing for a few years and wants to play in a club so he has a chance to get regular weekend tee times and to play with as great group.
Majors: NONE





Jon Schiavo. Jae Kim(2nd season)
Jon joined us via our website He Brought in his friend Jae Kim and both will hope to be Full team members in 2019, They both were inquiring about golf club that has some friendly competition so they should fit in well with the Weekenders
