P. Isztwan Wins Inter-Ac Golf Individual Title

By the end of Thursday's Inter-Ac Individual Golf Championships, one had to wonder whether the name of the honored person connected to the event had been changed from Bert Linton to Rod Serling.

You won't believe these nuggets . . . 

The winner, with a 5-over score of 75 at Huntingdon Valley Country Club, Penn Charter's home course, was PC freshman Patrick Isztwan.

In 2014, the winner was PC's Brian Isztwan, then a frosh.

In second place Thursday, at 76, was Haverford School's Charlie Baker.

In '14, the runnerup was Otis Baker. Yes, of HS. Yes, the brother of Charlie.

"We tied," Brian remembered. "Then I beat him in a one-hole playoff."
Wait. There's more.

Every year, the Linton event, named for PC's late/great coach, includes 24 players. The first 18 earn their spots by posting the best scores in the I-A's six weekly invitationals. The last six, one per school, are chosen to compete by their coaches.

In 2014 AND 2017, the Isztwan brothers were selected to be part of the field by coach Travis Larabee and assistant Val Erdmanis.

The course at HVCC has 27 holes. Thursday's 18 were not used in PC's home matches.

Across the board, in part because of high winds and incredibly fast greens, most players recorded scores higher than normal.

Though Brian Isztwan, for the second consecutive year, notched the I-A's best scoring average, in this one he got off to a rough start and finished at 88. Seniors Noah Schwartz (86) and Dante DiStefano (99) were PC's other entrants.
