The People’s United Bank team of Robert Baptist, Lou Giosia, Brian Noccioli, and Robert Wall won the “two best balls of four (net)” contest, while the team sponsored by cg42 in Wilton, including Steve Beck, Brian Crocker, Greg Rosen, and Steve Samuels, won for “two best balls of four (gross).” Mr. Beck had the longest drive for the day, and Joe Scarfi won for hitting closest to the hole.
