| Tuesday, May 15, 2001

Steve Antenucci shot a 67 on Monday to win the Tri-State Section PGA's Pepsi Classic at The Madison Club.

Antenucci, a pro at The Longue Vue Club, shot 34-33 to finish at 5-under-par over the 6,847-yard layout. He collected $1,500 in first-prize money.

Ed Vietmeier of the Duquesne Golf Association shot a 68 to finish second. Gordon Vietmeier of Mt Lebanon Golf Club was third, two shots behind Antenucci.

Five players, including low amateur Bob Allshouse, finished tied for fourth at 70. Amateurs receive pro shop credit instead of prize money.

John Rech Jr. of Rolling Hills Country Club shot a 74 to win the senior event and $395. Phil Newcamp of St. Clair Country Club and Bryan Abbott of Beaver Lakes Country Club each shot 75 to tie for second.

The Tri-State PGA also announced pairings for next week's Match Play Championship at Youghiogheny Country Club in McKeesport.

Competition begins Monday morning with 81 golfers vying for 31 at-large berths. Defending champion John Mazza is exempt from qualifying. The elimination tournament begins Monday afternoon and continues through Wednesday.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
