Matt Baran, PGA (Oyster Harbors Club) shot a four-under par score of 66 to win the final NEPGA Stroke Play Series event of the season at Haverhill Country Club on Monday, August 28th. (The top 54 in the Avidia Bank Cup points listing moved on to play in the Avidia Bank Cup Championship at the Misquamicut Club later in September.) Baran started out of the gate on a tear. He made birdies on the second, fourth, eighth, and ninth holes. He made the turn with an eye-popping score of 31, four under par. On the back, Baran kept the birdie barrage moving, making two more birdies on the 12th and 14th holes. He made a couple of quick mistakes, making bogey on the 15th and 17th holes. However, his skill was unmatched and he finished in first place for the event with a four-under-par. “On the front, I was really on, I rolled a few putts and I don’t think I missed a green,” said Baran, “I started to throw it away a little coming in, but I was able to hold it all together.
